How Does Saving Star Work? ~ Changes Coming October

savingstar_logo

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!

facebook

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

RSS

Twitter

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?

NEW! Walgreens Online Coupons on Balance Rewards Card

online

When I was looking through the 6/29 – 7/5 ad, I saw something about a “less coupon online or in store.”  The online of it caught my eye, so I moseyed on over to the Paperless Coupon section of my Balance Rewards account and noticed how they updated it.

If you forget to grab an extra monthly savings book for another coupon you would like to use or if they run out, you can now load them onto your card. They also offer the in-ad coupons to be loaded onto your card as well. In the bottom left corner of the coupon, it will tell you if it’s a manufacturer, monthly savings, or weekly in-ad coupon along with the limits and restrictions.  If it’s not a manf. coupon, you can use another coupon with it.

When you get to the Paperless Coupon section, look for a drop-down menu on the top menu bar that says “all types.”  If you want to find them more quickly, choose which coupons you want to view.  If you’re looking for an in-ad coupon, choose “weekly ad coupon.”

There’s no way to be sure the coupons will come off automatically, so it might be best to actually grab the paper coupons to make sure you hand the cashier your savings. If you feel daring (like me!), try it out and see if it works. I haven’t had any disputes so far with the paperless coupons, but you never know what can happen! I personally wouldn’t use too many paperless coupons at one time – just to make sure I can see the coupon come off on the screen. (At the bottom of your receipt where the coupon deductions are, the digitals are called “ECPN”.)

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

mobile_theme

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!!  :)

Walgreens ~ Updated Coupon Policy

walgreens_logo

Walgreens has updated their coupon policy.  You can read the entire official policy here.  I’m going to highlight the ones that mean something to us and do my best to explain what they mean.  It’s not good news for us couponers.

  • Walgreens will not accept coupons that exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.
    If your coupon exceeds the value of the item, they will no longer adjust it down.  Coupons for over the amount of the item purchased will not be accepted.  When this happened in the past for a 99¢ item w/ a $1 coupon, Juli has asked the cashier just to raise the price of the item up to $1 since they didn’t know how to adjust the coupon down.  It would be worth asking in that situation.
  • For offers when multiple items are purchased and additional items are free (buy 1 get 1 free; buy 2 get 1 free, etc.), the number of coupons applied to that offer cannot exceed the number of items required in the “buy” portion of the offer.
    You can no longer use a coupon on a free item in a buy one, get one free sale.  If you have a $1/2 coupon, you will need to buy 4 items total (2 buy, 2 free) to use the coupon.  Just like the grocery stores.
  •  When items are featured in a Buy 1 Get 1 Free promotion, at least one product needs to be purchased. A maximum of one BOGO coupon is permitted per two qualifying items in a BOGO offer.
    If you have a BOGO coupon and there is a BOGO sale, you will no longer get both items for free.   You will need to buy four items total.  You’d pay for one, and get 3 free (2 from the sale and one with your coupon.)

Again, here is the full coupon policy.
