    Default Flash food app

    Has anyone used this Flashfood app yet?

    We picked up some half price meat on the weekend and we tried to buy a flat of mangoes for 5$ last night however the app and the store had a discrepancy and the store basically told us tough luck despite buying the item on the app. So now we are stuck trying to get a refund but we donít have a receipt because we never received the item despite paying for it online.

    I use it regularily to purchase $5 boxes of mixed fruit and occasional whatever is cheap. Never had any issues with what your experiencing though which is odd, I thought when you pick up your item, your local location opens their app and marks it picked up. Even on your end, the app should still show you have a pick up pending section. Sounds like you need to talk to the store manager vs whoever is doing the Flashfood handling and not co-operating

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    I got refunded but I find the stores do not care at all about if you have issues however they are the ones listing fruit or meat or whatever on the app.

    It must be different for him because he's in Edmonton living in an igloo and he has to trade fur for discounted freeze-dried provisions using this app.

    Found that stores are very different

    Sage Hill City Market - Nobody touches the food in the fridge except staff
    Coventry Superstore - speak to Customer Service; you are supervised in your food search while they stand behind the counter.
    Edgemont/Hamptons Superstore - Help yourself to the free-for-all fridge that's nowhere near the Customer Service counter. Grab your food amongst the 5 other people trying to do so at the same time. Get in the 15 person lineup to speak to the one guy at the CS counter to verify.

    Yes fruit veg meat.

    For instance I got a slab of ribs for 50% off. I was immediately freezing them anyway so the expiry date a few days away didnt matter to me.

    Its mainly anything short dated so instead of throwing it out, give a discount and someone can feed their family. I've seen all sorts of items, fruit/veg, loafs of bread, baguettes, deli meats, yogurts, chocolate bars, donuts. Etc.

    But as said above, each location has their own process. I have 2 local ones I go to and 1, you go to CS and show the rep what your picking up, she watches you grab it and marks it picked up. The other location, has a dedicated person actually grabbing the stuff and hands it to you.
