as it IS new and I don’t like putting something out there blindly
SavingStar is the first national, fully digital, grocery eCoupon service,
available for free online and on iPhone and Android mobile apps.
There’s nothing to clip, nothing to print.
Providing exclusive eCoupons redeemable at over 24,000 grocery and drug stores
throughout the country, SavingStar’s eCoupons are linked to customers’ loyalty cards
and offer a more convenient and eco-friendly way to save on groceries than paper coupons.
SavingStar automatically adds the value of each eCoupon redeemed into users’ SavingStar accounts, enabling them to pick their payout from cash to gift cards to charity donations.
Prior to founding SavingStar, CEO David Rochon and President Michael Libenson built
the grocery segment for Upromise.com enabling eCoupons for its 13 million members who save for college. SavingStar’s founding team spun off from Upromise in 2010,
and the company now also powers Upromise’s Grocery eCoupons.
Here is the scoop: Do it!!
You create your account and enter your store loyalty cards (think Copps, Pick N Save, CVS…)
You download offers to your card from the website or mobil app.
When you buy the items at the store, and they scan your card, it credits your account!
You look for sales pricing
You use add manufacturer coupons (that double)
You can send in for rebates
Now, you can get MORE money back by doing SavingStar!
as an Amazon gift card or directly to your bank account…more options are coming.
but they DID post — so I call it a success
In the Madison area you can connect with:
- Pick N Save
- Piggly Wiggly
What is SavingStar?
SavingStar is the first and only national, fully-digital grocery eCoupon service. There is nothing to clip and nothing to print. Finally!
How do I use SavingStar eCoupons?
SavingStar is a paperless way of saving with eCoupons that link to your existing grocery and drug store loyalty cards. Here’s how it works: after a one-time registration of your store cards, saving is quick and easy. Simply click the eCoupons you want on savingstar.com or our iPhone® or Android® apps and we’ll link your eCoupons to all of your registered store cards. When you use your card at checkout like you normally do, your savings are automatically added to your SavingStar account. (Note: your grocery bill will stay the same.) Once your savings reach $5, you can pick your payout from a deposit into your bank or PayPal account, an Amazon gift card, or a donation to American Forests.
Will you be adding more payout options?
Yes! SavingStar is the only service that lets you choose how to save. More options will be added periodically. Have an idea? Let us know!
Does SavingStar offer iPhone® or Android® apps?
Yes! If you haven’t already done so, click here for iPhone® and here for Android® to download the apps. These apps allow you to choose eCoupons while on the go – including while you are shopping – and also help you remember which items to purchase to redeem your eCoupons.
Which stores participate in SavingStar?
Nationwide, over 24,000 stores participate representing nearly 100 retail chains. Never satisfied, we are working hard to bring you even more places to save. If your favorite store is not listed as a participating retailer, feel free to let them know that you would like them to join SavingStar.
How often are new eCoupons available?
Currently, SavingStar makes most new eCoupons available on the first of every month – though new offers may become available at any time.
How will I know that I’ve received my savings?
All savings will be posted to your SavingStar account empowering you to track exactly how much you’ve saved over time. We’ll also send you an email to alert you when your savings post.
How quickly do my savings post to my SavingStar account?
Your savings will typically post to your SavingStar account between two days and two weeks after your purchase, depending on how quickly stores send us purchase data. In rare cases it can take up to 30 days. SavingStar is actively working with retailers to post your savings as quickly as possible.
Are SavingStar eCoupons doubled by retailers?
Retailers typically do not double digital coupons. This is also true for SavingStar eCoupons.
I’m a member of Upromise and see that its Grocery eCoupons are powered by SavingStar. Can I participate in both Upromise and SavingStar?
Yes. In fact, SavingStar (which was created as an independent company when it was spun out from Upromise) provides the eCoupons for the Upromise service. You may register for both the Upromise and SavingStar services, including registering your same store loyalty cards in each service. However, you may only activate a particular eCoupon in one service during a single promotion period. In the future, you’ll see SavingStar powering other rewards services as well.
