Help, Please! ~ Send Us Your Catalina Notices

yoplait_catalina(Thanks, for this and other Catalina notices you always send us, Marisela!)

We are wanting to have an accurate list of available Catalina offers, but can’t do it without your help.  Personally, I don’t get them very often.  Seriously — the machine hates me.  I have to dig in trash cans or bend down in dark parking lots to find them.  It’s a joke between us, behind the scenes.  I don’t get any Catalina love!??!  Between all of us who work behind the scenes, we have a list, but still not a complete list.  Help!

We want to let you know about them, when they match with a great deal.  And, if we feel like we have enough, I’ll create a page on the website, that you can get to whenever you want.   So . . . help!

If you get a notification of a Catalina (usually a printout, at the register), will you send the information our way?  We would love a picture, just for double verification and to get all the details we need, but if you can’t do that, typing it out for us is better than nothing and we’ll take it!  Please let us know what store you got it at, the exact products listed, dates, and amounts.  I’m only looking for the ones that tell you what you can save, on a future purchase, if you buy a certain product.  If you get a wonderful coupon and know what you bought that triggered it, I guess those are good, too.  :)

Also, if we have a Catalina listed that says “haven’t tested” and you try it, please let us know.  Of, if you try it at a different store and it works, we’d love to hear about it.  Catalina printouts often come from one store, but work at more.  You just never know for sure, until it’s tested.

Email Gina or me — or comment below any post on the website (It’s better if it’s not on Facebook since sometimes we don’t see every comment there, though we try!  If you send us a private message on Facebook, we’ll get it, so that also works.)  If you can snap a pic — even better!

Stay Active on Facebook or You’re Missing Out!


Are a Facebook user, who likes to see all the updates from pages you have “liked,” like the Bargain Believer page?  (I think that sentence had too may “likes” in it!)

Ughhh . . . it’s so frustrating when I don’t see things I want to.  I feel like when I “like” a page, I’m telling Facebook I want to see their updates.  If I don’t want to see them, I’ll “unlike” them.  Facebook sees it differently.  :(

You need to get/stay active to see what you want on the Bargain Believer Facebook page!  We posts extra deals on Facebook from time to time.  You’ll want to see them, even if you get the email or stalk the website.

When you “like,” share, or comment … you are telling Facebook that you value the page and want to see posts.  You are also making it a more popular post, which will increase the likelihood that those who aren’t as active, will see the post.  Pretty please … like or comment on posts when you think they’re beneficial!

If you are active for awhile and you’re still not seeing everything, don’t forget … you can get daily emails.  Note:  You will not get them until you click on the confirmation email that you receive.  You will get an email almost every single day.  I realize that’s not for everyone.  If it annoys you enough, you can unsubscribe at any time.  We promise not to spam you, once you unsubscribe.  Well, we’ll never “spam” you, but you’ll get that one email each day.  :)

If all else fails … we have a website!  Check it often.  :)

Thanks for being here and giving us an outlet to share the deals we find.  We like finding bargains and it’s much more fun to share them!

Albertsons (some) Bought by Haggen ~ Plus 3 Safeway Locations in AZ


Just a heads up for some changes that are coming our way for some Albertsons locations (and a few Safeways) throughout Arizona.

A northwest grocery, Haggen, is purchasing 146 stores, 10 in Arizona.  They plan on converting the locations below to Haggen, during the first half of 2015.  I hope it will add competition and keep our prices low.  We are lucky to be in a state where the competition is high and grocery prices are low, in comparison to some areas of the nation.

We’ll all have to learn their coupon policy, among other things.  I haven’t even heard of Haggen, but I guess we’ll be learning soon!

You can read more details here(Thanks, AZ Central!)

Current brand Location
Albertsons 1416 E. Route 66, Flagstaff
Albertsons 11475 E. Via Linda, Scottsdale
Albertsons 34442 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale
Albertsons 1350 N. Silverbell Road, Tucson

How Does Saving Star Work? ~ Changes Coming October


I just wanted to remind everyone that changes are coming to Saving Star, starting October 1st, 2014.  There are two major parts to their change.

  1.   The savings at Fry’s will no longer be automatic.  You will need to scan your receipt to get the credit into your account, starting 10/1/14.
    Register and then you can submit receipts/UPC images online or through their app.  You will also need the product’s barcode.

And, there are a bunch of retailers added, that will take scanned receipts.

  1.   The Arizona stores that participate are Fry’s, Safeway, Bashas, Food City, Albertsons, Walgreens, CVS, Target, Kmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar, WinCo, Costco, & Sam’s Club.  There’s a complete list here.

Here’s the general information, if you haven’t used Saving Star before.

With SavingStar, you can save eCoupons to your grocery store loyalty cards or to your Saving Star account and get credited when you swipe your card at checkout or when you submit your receipt online or through their app.  The savings doesn’t come off at the register, it gets credited to your SavingStar account, within a week or two.  (Their official time is 2 – 22 days. )  If you scan your receipt, you have until three days after the offer expires.  You can request your payment via Paypal, bank deposit, or gift card when you reach $5.

The only “automatic” stores in Arizona are CVS and Bashas’.  You will enter the store’s loyalty card number once and savings will trigger whenever you use your card and buy the specified products.

There is a “Healthy Offer of the Week.”  Every Tuesday a new coupon is available to load for fresh produce.

They also have one item each Friday that you’ll get 100% cash back!  You have through Sunday to make your purchase.

The Arizona stores that participate are Fry’s, Safeway, Bashas, Albertsons, Walgreens, CVS, Target, Kmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar, WinCo, Costco, & Sam’s Club.

Before the receipt scanning was needed, I just loaded everything and considered anything I received a bonus.  Now, it will take more effort and planning.  It will be easiest to head to CVS or Bashas’ for the Friday freebie, if that’s convenient and you need other items there.

Saving Star savings is not meant to be combined with paper coupons.  Here’s their official statement on that:

SavingStar eCoupons will work whether or not you combine them with other services’ coupons, but they are not intended to be used this way.  Generally, manufacturers state that it is against their policies for shoppers to redeem more than one manufacturer’s coupon for the same purchase.  Using in-store coupons in combination with SavingStar eCoupons is not a problem.  In the future, we may implement mechanisms to limit the combination of SavingStar eCoupons with other manufacturer coupons.

Facebook Problems? ~ Get Bargain Believer to Show Up in Your Feed!


I’ve received quite a few emails recently, asking how to get Facebook updates from Bargain Believer to show up in your news feed.

The very best way seems to “like,” comment, and share posts regularly.  The people that do that say they see all the updates.  As a bonus, Facebook shows the posts with the most love, more often.  So, we love all of you that interact with our page!  It helps those who want to get the updates, but choose to remain quiet.

If you are opposed to that, hover over “liked” and make sure “following” is checked.  You have hope, but it doesn’t seem like much.  Most likely, you’ve already done that and nothing has changed.  :(

Lastly, you can check to “get notifications,”  which is an option under the “like” button.  Some love get notifications, some don’t.  Try it for awhile and see what you think.  You can always uncheck it later.

If Facebook won’t show you the love, there are other ways to follow.

Email - One email per day, usually around 3pm — good way to quickly look & see what you missed



You could give one of those a shot or just stalk the website page each day.

Anyone have any other insight about getting your “liked” pages to show up?

Make Shopping List from Mobile Device ~ You Can! (Hopefully!)


My husband recently informed me that you can make a personalized shopping list from most mobile devices, using the handy dandy green plus signs on Bargain Believer shopping lists.  (I know that some newer devices don’t have problems.)  I told him, “Nope, tried it.”  I discovered there is a slight glitch on my phone, so that’s why I didn’t know.  (I’ll explain below.)  Did you know this!?!  I’m so excited and can’t believe I didn’t know about it.

First of all, if you don’t use the green plus signs, you’re missing out.  The items are listed by price on the sale lists, but when you click on what you want, it will categorize for you — and a whole lot more than that!  You can watch this video for more details or just click around and figure it all out.

You will need to turn off the mobile view.   The green plus signs will appear and you can click away!  A new window will pop up and you’ll have to go back and forth between them.  For Gina (iphone) and my husband (Android) that’s all they had to do.

For me (iphone), nothing appears on the list after clicking the first green plus sign.  It pulls up an empty list.  I have to click back on the store’s deal list and then back to the shopping list that opened.  It magically appears and kicks it in gear for the future green plus signs I click.

This is still not ideal.  We have bigger and better plans and my husband is working on it, but this is better than nothing.  I will be using my mobile sometimes, but will still prefer using my laptop to make lists.  Using a mobile is a slower process since you have to go back and forth between windows.

All mobiles seem to have their own issues and the plus signs weren’t really designed for mobile devices.  So, this may not work for everyone.  But, give it a shot!

Some of you have probably been doing this “forever.”  But, I’m hoping it will be news for some of you — like it was for me!!  :)

Here’s a  video explaining the shopping list function (aka “Magical Green Plus Signs!)  Try it, you’ll like it!  :)

The other links will help you get to some of the important information.  Also, don’t forget that there is a Facebook page!  We post additional offers over there, mostly Facebook only deals and ones we think will be gone very quickly.  You can also ask questions over there.   Plus, it’s just more interactive and I love seeing your little faces and interacting with you.   :)

I’ve been asked if I will charge a fee for the upgrades/app my husband is working on.  No!  Unless there is a reason our income drops, we can afford to keep going the way we are.  Thankfully, my husband works for dinner (when I make it!) and doesn’t expect more.  :)

I pay four people to help with this site:  Gina, Susan, Cherie, Karen.   Let me assure you that none of them are getting rich and they all deserve more for what they do!  When there’s “extra,” I make money.  When there’s not, I don’t.  Thankfully, overall I do.  I have additional ideas for improvements, but they all take time.  Since I don’t have more of that precious commodity, it would mean hiring additional people to help.  I’m always afraid to take that leap since my income goes up and down and I’m not willing to lose money by running this website.  But, up to this point, it’s always worked out.

I’ve also been asked what you can do to thank us or help support the site.  First of all, by asking that or telling us how the site has helped you . . . you’ve brought a smile to my face and probably the other gals.  Thank you!  Beyond that, my basic answer is . . . . use this site and tell others about it, if you find value in it!

Something even more tangible that you can do is bookmark the Coupons.com page on the site:

Whenever you print coupons from there (or any direct link we give), I get paid.  When you type in Coupons.com and go to their site, I don’t.  From time to time, I get paid for other links I give you, but that is one of the main ways I make money and we can continue to make the site free.

Another consistent source of income is from Google ads, as you probably know.  When you see something of interest and click on it (or just come to the site), they pay me a small amount.  It adds up!

So, please use the links we provide!  Many won’t bring me any revenue, but some do.  I try very hard not to post things just because I’ll get paid for them.  In fact, I just had a IM conversation with Susan a couple days ago, hesitating to post something because it made me money.  When I make money, I often give it extra thought — just to make sure that’s not what is motivating me to publish it.  I don’t want this site to become like so many out there . . . selling you one “bargain” after another just to make a buck or two.   I’m very firm on this.

Again, this link is a great one to bookmark and use . . . it has a value to you and to all of us who work behind the scenes.  Thank you!

Thank for being here and trusting us to bring you deals we find value in!

P.S.  My husband is slowly working on the upgrades, but there is not a target date.  It just gets a couple hours here and there, as he can find time.  The biggest change (that will probably roll out first) will be for you to be able to move from device to device, being able to work on or pull up your completed lists.  I’m very excited and can’t wait to use it myself!
