    I don't know if this is the right section for this but I found on Del Monte which is the website for Del Monte you can get 75 cents off coupons for their Gold Extra Sweet pineapples.

    I am giving my customers this site information to help defray the cost of fresh pineapples to encourage sales of our pineapple wedger.

    Your welcome! I told a few people about it today when I delivered their backordered pineapple wedgers and they were thrilled! I used my coupon today too!
     
  6. Harriet you do such a fantastic job with your FB page! I saw this there and I mentioned it to my MIL who had just received the pineapple wedger today! What a great tip!

    Thanks, Michelle. I try to think of ways to get the word out without getting into trouble. Not always easy. I hope it helps others and that is the biggest thing. We all support each other around here and share knowledge. I just got a note back from my director about this "find" and she thought that was giving my customers great customer service as more and more people are looking for ways to save money and how we are helping them.

    thanks for the tip! I bring a pineapple to every show and have sold 2-3 wedgers AT LEAST at every show since I started doing this. Now it will cost me even less! :)

    Slightly off topic...but...it makes a great hostess gift. Place fresh pineapple on top of pineapple wedger, wrap with cellophane & secure with bow. Great for realtors gifts, etc.

    Great idea, Stacy! I should mention this to my realtor/friend when I see her again.

    After having them on a British Airways flight, I made pineapple spears with the wedger! How fun! I'm really enjoying this tool. Down here, Sprouts has had pineapple on sale regularly...last week, it was 97 cents! This week, it is 2 for $4, so while it isn't Del Monte, it is inexpensive and delicious!

    Do you just cut them in halves/quarters?

    Thanks for letting us know, Harriet!
    I'm now in love with the pineapple wedger, after almost slicing my thumb off the first time I used it, probably needing stitches but not getting them and then not using it for almost a month after that! The tip to cut the darn thing in half is paramount to success!
