Using SavingStar With No Grocery Store Loyalty Card

by Lori. LAST UPDATED ON

If you want to save money on you grocery bill but are not a fan of cutting out and organizing coupons. Try e-coupons that load right to your store loyalty card.

My favorite site is called SavingStar.  Your savings accumulate in an account and you can let it grow, request a check, deposit it in your PayPal account or donate it to charity.

My husband does the bulk of the grocery shopping in our house. Truthfully, he is better at it than I am because I get bogged down in my coupons and too many decisions. He is like a heat-seeking missile. He gets what is on our list and gets out of there. I load up coupons ahead of time to our loyalty card and when he swipes it at checkout, the savings are automatic- no juggling of coupons is needed. Plus coupons expire off the club card automatically if they are not used so you can load them and forget about them!

There are over 24,000 stores that are partnering with SavingStar. A few grocery stores like Stater Bros. here in California do not use loyalty or club cards so I was curious as to how Saving Star would work at those stores. Skip to the end of this post if this applies to your grocery store.

Here’s how it works: Savings with no clipping!

Select the eCoupons you like on the website or mobile app, and they are automatically linked to your store card.  Use your card when you checkout and the money is added to your SavingStar account. The savings don’t change your bill at the register and the savings are not printed on the receipt. Instead, they get deposited into your account within 7-30 days depending upon where you shop.

Once your SavingStar account reaches $5 in savings, you can pick your payout from a bank account deposit, a PayPal account deposit, an Amazon gift card, or a donation to charity.

Here are some FAQ’s:

Can SavingStar eCoupons be stacked with paper coupons?

eCoupons will work whether or not you combine them with other services’ coupons, but they are not intended to be used this way. Manufacturers typically have policies limiting use to 1 coupon per purchase, but it is up to each shopper to follow the policies.

Where can I redeem my coupons?
