* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Inverted. Early in the Lifetime revival, the show had several "monsters" (most famously "Mr. Yuck") who would roam the aisles and get in the way of shoppers during the Big Sweep, forcing them to take another route. They were discarded in 1991.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBUM0fM2Qdc This episode's Big Sweep]] (from Season 6) has Michael of Team 3, who uses some Rubbermaid pails to do his shopping at first, and then, right before time runs out, he manages to get a bonus across the red line, only to nearly crash into David in his haste; Johnny Gilbert even goes "Look out, David!"
** The closing seconds to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRAigvzrHJg this sweep]]: "Here comes Michelle! Watch out! Woah! *Thud* What a landing!" Cue the host being unable to cut to a commercial due to serious {{Corpsing}}.
** During [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiduEQtNsNg this Big Sweep from 1991]], David gets hit ''twice'' with shopping carts, the second just before time expires.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Creator/FoodNetwork's ''Guy's Grocery Games'' takes several elements from ''Supermarket Sweep'', particularly the idea of being set in a giant grocery store set, and a similar bonus round. However, it is primarily a cooking competition, where the contestants actually have to ''use'' the items in the store rather than just throw them in a cart and call it a day.

* GameBreaker: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JphpCpCRTBM In a 2016 Youtube video,]] former host David Ruprecht revealed a strategy that few people used, and those that did used it won the sweep. After grabbing 5 Hams and 5 Turkeys, a contestant would have to go and pickup 5 hair coloring products, and 5 health and beauty products. This combination would ensure a guaranteed win.
