Changes to Saving Star

savingstar_logo

Saving Star is making some changes.  If you hav logged in to your Saving Star account recently, you’ve probably seen the big box on top explaining things.

If not, here it is:

Important Account Change: Kroger

The way you save at Kroger stores will soon change. Starting on October 1, Kroger will transition from an “automatic” (loyalty card) retailer and instead participate as a receipt-scanning retailer. This means that you will redeem SavingStar offers at Kroger stores by submitting a picture of your receipt, instead of linking SavingStar offers to your Kroger card. This change impacts all Kroger stores, including: Kroger, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, JayC, King Soopers, City Market, PayLess, Owen’s, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith’s. This was a corporate decision made by Kroger.

All SavingStar offers redeemed at Kroger-owned stores using your loyalty card must take place by September 30 (rewards will post to your account on or before October 9). Starting October 1, all redemptions will be credited when you submit a picture of your receipt, either through the SavingStar app or SavingStar.com.

New Retailers

We are pleased to announce that also starting in October, you’ll be able to redeem SavingStar offers at new stores – Safeway, Vons, Food 4 Less and H-E-B – by submitting a picture of your receipt using the SavingStar app (or submitting it through SavingStar.com).

Other recently added retailers include: Walmart, Target, Kmart, BJ’s, Costco, Sam’s Club, Walgreens, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Meijer, and WinCo.

If you are new to Saving Star, sign up here and then download their mobile app.  For stores without a loyalty card (like Target) you will need to submit a receipt through the app.

So for now if you shop at CVS, Albertsons or Bashas, you will still get automatic savings via your loyalty card or Upromise keytag at Albertsons.

Starting October 1st, you will now need to take pictures of your Fry’s receipts and submit it via the app to get your savings.  Safeway is also being added, so that’s a bonus.  With the app, they cover most stores.  But, it’s just another step for us now.  I kind of liked not having to take pictures.

Arizona Walmart Ad Matching List ~ 9/17/14 – 9/23/14

Click the green plus signs to generate personalized shopping lists. This list has two parts . . . #1 –  Possible ad matching deals are listed.  The store needs to be a “local competitor,” so not everyone can get all these deals.  Your Walmart may not carry all these products.  Meats are very hard to match since they need to be the exact same packaging, type, etc. #2 — Regular priced deals with coupon match ups are listed at the bottom.  Remember, prices can vary from store to store, but are usually close.

Here’s information about their new program . . . Price Catcher.  It may be worth your time to give it a whirl, but we suggest ad matching first, for now.

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?

My Review of Walmart’s New Savings Catcher Program

savings_catcher

We talked to you about Walmart’s new Savings Catcher program here.  I decided to test it out last week.  I went to Walmart on Wednesday and bought something very simple, a box of Ritz crackers.  They can’t mess that up, right?  Here’s my receipt clearly showing the Ritz crackers for $2.50 at the very top.  It even says at the bottom of the receipt to try their new Saving Catcher program.

walmart2

Notice the date on the receipt is August 6th.  Here’s a copy of the Safeway ad starting August 6th.  Safeway is less than 1/4 mile from Walmart here in Prescott Valley.  It clearly shows on the front page that Ritz are $1.88.

photo_2 (2)

It took 72 hours to get this email.  They didn’t find any differences.  Um, really?  walmart

I issued a complaint where I had to state the lower price and where.  Now, it’s just the point.  I want my 62¢.  If I have to do all the work for them, I’d rather just stick to price matching using our super easy price matching list that we make every week.

So, that’s my experience with this new program.  Do with that info what you wish.  I’m going to price match everything that I’m possibly aware of.  Then, I’ll use this program as a back up.

We’ve heard from several people on Facebook who have said it works and have gotten back $2, $7 and even $11.  So, it CAN work.  A lot of people are loving it.

Update:  I heard from someone who works for Walmart on this program.  He gave me the following information:

For clarification on the comparison - Savings Catcher would match the Safeway club
card price (and the advertised loyalty card prices for other stores, too). 

The competitive set for Savings Catcher is pretty comprehensive. For the specific
store you shopped at, it currently includes: Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, Frys, Kmart,
Albertsons, Target, Family Dollar, Kohls, Petsmart, Dollar Tree, Staples, Best Buy,
Petco, Lowe's, Radio Shack, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Now, I’m in a small town in Prescott Valley, so I was surprised that it covered so many stores.

They also resolved my issue and I got my money.  :)

Walmart Savings Catcher Program (like price matching without having to)

savings_catcherUpdate:  Here are the results from the first test we did, with some feedback in the comments below that post.

Walmart has a new program called Savings Catcher.  This could be great if it works like they say.  I love that you don’t need to take a photo of your receipt, just enter the number at the bottom.  Easy peasy.  You will need to create a Walmart account.  I already had one.  Other than that, the whole process took me about 30 seconds.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Submit your receipt to Savings Catcher in any one of two ways:
    • Enter the receipt number (the TC number) into Savings Catcher at Walmart.com/savingscatcher. You’ll find this number located near the bottom of your printed Walmart store receipt.
    • Or, scan the code at the bottom of your printed store receipt, using the scanner in the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app.
  2. Savings Catcher compares the prices of the eligible items you bought at Walmart to the advertised prices found in the print and online versions of the weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.
  3. If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you’ll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card.

You can submit up to 7 receipts a week and it takes 2-3 days to receive your credit.

Here’s info on what they match:

Does Savings Catcher compare all items on my receipt?
Savings Catcher applies to many items sold at Walmart stores. This includes:

  • Most groceries such as cereal, rice and most fruits and vegetables except for: store brand items, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
  • Consumable items such as paper towels, bleach and trash bags.
  • Health and beauty items such as shampoo and makeup.
  • Select general merchandise items.

Savings Catcher does not currently apply to:

  • Store brands, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
  • General merchandise items, (including, but not limited to, electronics, media and gaming, toys, sporting goods, housewares, small appliances, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, apparel and shoes, jewelry, furniture, office supplies and seasonal products).
  • Non-branded items.
  • Tobacco, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical and photo products and services, or products that require a service agreement such as wireless, automotive or financial products.

Here’s the list of FAQ.

I went today and bought Ritz crackers as they are $2.50 at Walmart, but on sale at Safeway for $1.88.  I’ll update this in 2-3 days and let you know if I got my credit.

Update:  I heard from someone who works for Walmart on this program.  He gave me the following information:

For clarification on the comparison - Savings Catcher would match the Safeway club
card price (and the advertised loyalty card prices for other stores, too). 

The competitive set for Savings Catcher is pretty comprehensive. For the specific
store you shopped at, it currently includes: Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, Frys, Kmart,
Albertsons, Target, Family Dollar, Kohls, Petsmart, Dollar Tree, Staples, Best Buy,
Petco, Lowe's, Radio Shack, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Now, I’m in a small town in Prescott Valley, so I was surprised that it covered so many stores. Your area may even include more!

(Thanks, Rosie!)

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!!  :)
