Saving Star Friday Freebie ~ Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt

oikos

SavingStar has a new Friday Freebie for 1 Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt, 5.3 oz.  You only have until Sunday, 4/20 to buy this offer. Some weeks this offer is good through the following Thursday, some it’s only good for 3 days.  So make sure you keep an eye out for that.

This is different from the Fry’s Friday Freebie.  After you click “I Want This” on the offer, you’ll pay full price at the register.  In about 2-22 days, you’ll get a credit for the amount you paid  in your Saving Star account.

Plus, check out all the other great coupons.   This is a click, click, click job for me.  I just go click what I think there’s a chance I’ll ever buy.  Then, I wait for money to accumulate into my account.  You can cash out once you have $5.  More details are below.  Go load ‘em up!

They have a new deal called “Healthy Offer of the Week”.  Every Tuesday a new coupon is available to load.  Check back every Tuesday for a new offer.   My Saving Star account has never seen so much activity between the Healthy Tuesday offer and now the Friday Freebie!  Love it!

If you don’t know what it is, here’s more information:

With SavingStar, you can save eCoupons to your grocery store loyalty cards and automatically get credited when you swipe your card at checkout.  The savings doesn’t come off at the register, it gets credited to your SavingStar account.  You can request your payment via Paypal, bank deposit, or gift card when you reach $5.

I just load what I have a chance of buying and then forget about it.

The Arizona stores that participate are Fry’s, Bashas, and CVS.  Albertsons is included too, but there isn’t a loyalty card for that store.   They said you could get a Upromise keytag, but when Juli and I asked at customer service, they had no clue what we were talking about.  Josh from Saving Star gave us the info!    “Contact the stores’ customer support team at 877-932-7948. Please let them know that you use SavingStar and you will need to be issued a “Upromise keytag”. Customer support will ask for your information and you will then be sent a keytag in the mail which you can register in your SavingStar account as the loyalty card number for ACME, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, or Shaw’s.”  I called earlier this week and the rep knew exactly what I was talking about and my Upromise keytag is in the mail.  Thanks again Josh!

They are not meant to be combined with paper coupons.  Here’s their official statement on that:
(Personally, I load everything I might buy and forget it.)

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.

New $3/3 ANY Kellogg’s Cereal Coupon

$3.00 off any THREE Kellogg's Cereals

I saw this $3.00 off any THREE Kellogg’s Cereals and literally said WOW out loud.  :)  It’s a great coupon and one you don’t see often.  No doubling needed.  Just straight up great!  That’s my favorite kind of great.

You can find Kellogg’s on sale through tomorrow (Tuesday) at Bashas‘, Albertsons and Fry’s.  The best deal is at Albertsons for $1.88.

Plus, there is a Checkout 51 (phone app, future cash back) offer for $1/2 Frosted Flakes, Corn Flakes or Smart Start.

This coupon won’t stick around, so print it if you want it!

It’s also on the Kellogg’s site here.  This prints through Redplum and lots of us are having problems printing from them.  I can’t get it to print.  :(  (Thanks, Dawn!)

Saving Star Friday Freebie ~ StarKist Tuna Salad Pouch

Are We Going to Charge for Bargain Believer? No! ~ How Can You Support Us?

bargain_believer_logo

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:
http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/

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!
http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/   It’s also on the top menu bar, if that’s easier.

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

~ Juli

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!

My husband and I are going to be kid-less this weekend.  We were going to get away, but decided to stay home and work on Bargain Believer upgrades.  Don’t worry, we’ll throw in a movie or two and dinners out, also.  I decided I’m not cooking and will pretend we’re on vacation!   Do you think dinners out are tax deductible, as a business expense?   :)

What functionality do you want an app for Bargain Believer or the website to have, that it doesn’t already?  And/or, what do you love and not want to lose?  (I doubt there will be much disappearing, but some tweaking.  Additionally, it would help me clarify what is of the most value to you.)

Dream big!  My husband is an amazing programmer and most of the “crazy” ideas I’ve given him, he hasn’t thrown out.  :)  In fact, he’s said, “Well, why not have it do more?”  Amazing stuff . . . but some are way in the future since they’re . .  well, crazy good and crazy time consuming!  :)

The list we have is very long, but I don’t want to be missing anything simple or complex that you might be thinking of.  I won’t respond to each suggestion, but I promise to read them all and consider them.  I hope to add to the list and/or make my vision more clear, knowing that you want what we’ve already thought of.

Please comment below or over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.

By the way . . . this will take hours and hours and hours, so I can’t promise when there will be any visible changes or anything tangible.  We might roll a few things out slowly — not sure yet!

Thanks so much for your input!!  It will really help us.  ~ Juli

Checkout 51 ~ New Way to Save (similar to ibotta)

Checkout 51 Home

Have you checked out Checkout 51?  It’s a new way to save money, very similar to Ibotta.

Here’s what they say about their program:

Checkout 51 is the easiest way to save money on the brands you love! We’re currently saving over half a million Americans and Canadians money every day and have much larger plans for expansion!

All our members have to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Browse the offers that are updated every Thursday
  2. Buy the products from any store
  3. Take a photo of your receipt to redeem your deal
  4. Get cash back!

It works on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.  You have to reach $20 in savings to get payout, and they will mail a check to you.  If you are a new member, the first receipt over $20 that you scan in will earn you $2 back!

I love that this works at Albertsons since they always have great milk deals (ibotta doesn’t work there yet).  Milk will be on sale at Albertsons for $1.87 starting tomorrow.  Checkout 51 has an offer for $1 back on a gallon of milk.  That’s like paying on 87¢ after you factor in your future cashback!

If both Checkout 51 and Ibotta have the same offer, let’s say for milk, you can do both offers with the same receipt.  Just remember ibotta doesn’t work at some stores.  So, for the milk, it might be better to price match at Walmart and go from there.

So, go here to sign up and start saving today!
