CONTEST OVER – Win a Dominick’s $50 Gift Card!

Have you heard? Dominick’s Just for U is on iPhone now. I think this makes a lot of sense, don’t you?

To help spread the word, Dominick’s has generously offered to give one of you a $50 Dominick’s gift card.

First I’ll yack a bit about the app, then I’ll let you know how to win the gift card.

Those of you have been using Just for U know that it can be kind of frustrating to have to add the deals on your home computer, then go get the stuff at the store. Either you end up stopping while you’re out on the go and don’t have time to load the deals, or you get there and forget which items the deals are for.

Here’s how the iPhone app makes Just for U better:

  • You can load the coupons and deals onto your card from the app.
  • You can build the customized shopping list on your phone, and use it on your phone instead of printing it out.
  • Check the weekly store ad from the app.

Did I try the app? No I did not, because I have a Droid smartphone, not an iPhone. But the Dominick’s people tell me that it’s coming soon for Droid.

If you do have an iPhone, you can download it for free in the apps store.

Oh, and if you are one of the first 100,000 to download the app, you’ll getĀ free Ragu pasta sauce loaded onto your card.



  • To enter, please leave a comment telling me if you have tried the app, and if so how you liked it.
  • You can get a bonus entry by Tweeting this post. If you Tweet it, leave a comment letting me know you did.
  • You can get a bonus entry by sharing this post on Facebook. If you share, leave a comment letting me know you did.
  • Do not leave more than 3 comments per person.

CONTEST ENDS AT 11 A.M. TUESDAY MORNING. (That’s right, just one day for this one! That’s because I have more giveaways scheduled for every day this week!)

Thanks to Dominick’s for providing this prize, and for sending me a $50 gift card for my own use.

    I think I’m probably getting a Droid phone for a Xmas gift to myself, so I hope they do come out with the app for that soon!

    I don’t have an Iphone- or any smart phone for that matter- so I have not tried it.

    I downloaded it and I love it! I normally plan out my shopping trip ahead but I always find that I adjust it slightly while at the store. With this app, I can make sure I have added any necessary coupons, J4U prices, etc, while at the store. It’s very convenient!!

    Haven’t tried it. If only I had an I-phone… (But I’m glad I don’t have that monthly bill!)

    I downloaded the app and it’s definitely more convenient to add deal match coupons to your card!

    I would love to try this app, but my phone is strictly no frills.

    I have an Android as well, but honestly I am not too keen on all of these shopping apps anyway. too much of a hassle, too much to keep up with!

    I have an iphone and tried the app. But it has the same BIG problems that the online system has. Mainly, everything stays on there even if it’s one time use and you use it. No way to know what prices/coupons are still unused. Ugh. And it has the added problem that once you add something to your list it remains greyed out on the Savings tab, even if it has a higher limit.

    Tried it this morning – same problems as the website. Only benefit was that it was easier to show the customer service clerk which products didn’t come through with my J4U pricing, since it was clearly visible on the app! Success!

    LOVE this app. It is everything I could have ever asked for, and is SO much easier than trying to call up JFU on Safari while you’re in the store!

    Oh thank you for the heads-up on this app! I love it–it’s easy to use, especially the Personalized Deals where you can add them to your card and add them to your list (it makes a list!) with ease. I’ll use this much more than going to my pc. Love it.

    Love the app!! It’s nice to be able to add something “on the fly” while in the aisles. Not to mention having my list one touch away.

    Haven’t tried it, but maybe if I win the $50 gift card, I can save up for an iphone!

    I don’t have an iPhone so I haven’t used this app. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I like the app, but I didn’t see how to get deal match on it.

    I have a blackberry so haven’t tried it! But it would be way easier than how it is now!

    I’m a crackberry adict – no iPhone for me. But I have been in that situation where I’m kicking myself over forgotten Just for You’s.

    No I-phone, but it sounds like a great idea! wish they had an android or microsoft app!

    Oooh, this is nice. I’m always vague on coupon and sale dates so it will help me to have them up on my iPad, even though it’s a wifi only. Save paper for coupons! My JFU works much better since I opened one with a different email and deleted the old one! I don’t know why it worked but that’s what customer service had me do.

    I’ve tried the iPhone app. I planned my shopping trip on the L. And I like having one grocery list, unlike when you use the online version and it makes you print out separate lists for the weekly ad and just4you.

    Can’t wait for the droid app.. Sounds much better than using my smartphone to browse the dominicks website to click on ‘just for you’ sale items to be added to my card…

    Downloading the app right now! I hope it works well!! If so, it should be a big convenience!

    My phone isn’t smart at all, so won’t be able to use the app. But, I have enjoyed all the recent JFU deals!
