Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)

bargain_believer_logo

I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Is Couponing Worth It?

coupons_&_scissors

I was asked (after hearing Safeway will probably be accepting coupons at face value in AZ soon, more here) …

Is couponing worth it?

If you want the short answer … yes, for me.

If you want the long answer, grab your coffee (maybe it’s a smoothie this time of year?) and snuggle up to your computer or mobile, as I share my thoughts.

When, I say “couponing,” I mean using paper coupons (printable, from Sunday paper, & misc. coupons that may show up) or digital coupons you can load directly to your shopping cards.

I only use coupons for products I will use or have a specific purpose for (donating, giving to friends, etc).  I’m not a true “extreme couponer.”  I’ve only seen a couple of the TLC shows, but I’m nothing like what I’ve seen.  I like to call myself an “intentional couponer.”  I use them wisely and save a bunch of money!  I don’t need a trailer to get my groceries home and one bottle of mustard will usually last us until it expires, around my house.

For me, couponing will still be worth it, even if coupons are taken at face value.  (Keep in mind that most of the country can only redeem coupons at face value and many do it.)  There is still money to be saved.

I’m a firm believer that pennies add up to quarters, add up to dollars, add up to $20, etc.  I’ll even still bend down to pick up a penny.  The bonus is a little bit of exercise, if nothing else.  :)

On the other hand, I also value my time.  If I’m finding that saving $3 is taking me an hour, I won’t do it.  My time is worth more than $3/hour.  On the other hand, if it takes me an hour to get ready to go to the grocery store (or an extra hour to run somewhere else & look at ads, etc.) and I end up saving $30 (random number for example) … totally worth my time.  I should say … usually!  There are weeks when I don’t have an hour to spare to save $30, as much as I want to.  I value my sanity more than thirty bucks.

As much as I love the savings and the financial freedom it helps bring to my family, it’s not for everyone.  I have different time, priorities, and needs than you do.  Don’t blindly use coupons, without counting the cost.  There are costs.  I would never deny that!

  • Time — What “wages” are acceptable to you?  Remember, it’s tax-free “income.”
  • Space — How will you store surplus?  Do you have room or need to stick with basics?
  • Sanity — Does the extra clutter (coupons or treasures you get) drive you nuts?
  • Need — Do you need to do it to make ends meet?
  • Want — Do you enjoy using the savings for something else that makes the effort worthwhile?
  • Respect — Does your spouse value the fact that you do it or does it drive him/her nuts?
  • Cost — How much are you spending on newspapers, ink, paper, buying coupons, gas, whatever?

Take a serious inventory of the above list.  Ponder it and calculate it.  If you feel it’s more of a burden, stop — unless you feel it’s a necessity!  (Well, I don’t see how you can resist clicking and loading a few digital coupons.)  :)  Yes, I know I run a coupon website.  Well, I don’t fully see it that way.  I run a money saving website, that often involves coupons, but there’s much more!

Whatever you end up doing with your coupon usage, I hope you stick around Bargain Believer.  We’ll always share deals that have coupons, but we go beyond that.  We want you to have fun with your family, without spending a bunch.  We’ll point you to those deals and other bargains we just can’t seem to keep to ourselves.  As long as there are businesses competing, there will always be bargains out there and we’ll help you find them!  We may even tempt the non-coupon users out there to click and load a digital coupon or even print a coupon every once in awhile.  The coupon/non-coupon line can be crossed at any time.  :)

I was going to share some other ways to save, but I’m afraid you’re falling asleep now.  And, I’m out of time.  Stay tuned … more on saving (beyond coupons) soon!

What do you think?

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)

If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!

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!

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.
