Join Saving Star !

Do you shop at a grocery or drug store that issues a store loyalty card, such as CVS, Rite-Aid, or Kroger? If so, you should sign up for a SavingStar accountSavingStar is a national, fully-digital grocery eCoupon service that allows you to add paperless eCoupons to your existing grocery and drug store loyalty cards. They currently have over 24,000 stores participating that represent nearly 100 retail chains!

It links directly to your store loyalty cards so there is no extra clipping involved! Whenever you use the card to pay for an item that you've loaded an eCoupon for, it automatically deposits your savings into your SavingStar account, which can then be redeemed for a deposit into your bank or PayPal account, an Amazon gift card, or a donation to American Forests once your account reaches $5!

Interested? Here’s what you’ll need to do…

*Head on over here and register for a FREE SavingStar account (be sure to click on the confirmation link sent to your Inbox).
*After logging in, enter your zip code to see what stores are available for you to link your Store Loyalty card.
* Then browse through all the available coupons. 
* If you have an iPhone or Android, you can even download the SavingStar app so you can click the eCoupons you want, even while you’re out and about shopping! Just download the iPhone app or Android app to get started.
*After the eCoupons have been activated, whenever you use your loyalty card at checkout and purchase an item that you have an eCoupon for, your savings are automatically added to your SavingStar account (Note- your grocery bill will stay the same).
*Once your SavingStar account reaches $5, you can request a payout from a deposit into your bank or PayPal account, an Amazon gift card, or a donation to American Forests.

Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions you may also have…

How often are new eCoupons available?
Currently, SavingStar makes most new eCoupons available on the first of every month – though new offers may become available at any time.
How will I know that I’ve received my savings?
All savings will be posted to your SavingStar account empowering you to track exactly how much you’ve saved over time. They’ll also send you an email to alert you when your savings post.
How quickly do my savings post to my SavingStar account?
Your savings will typically post to your SavingStar account between two days and two weeks after your purchase, depending on how quickly stores send us purchase data. In rare cases it can take up to 30 days. SavingStar is actively working with retailers to post your savings as quickly as possible.
Are SavingStar eCoupons doubled by retailers?
Retailers typically do not double digital coupons. This is also true for SavingStar eCoupons.
Do SavingStar eCoupons stack with in-store discounts or manufacturer’s coupons?
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.
I’m a member of Upromise and see that its Grocery eCoupons are powered by SavingStar. Can I participate in both Upromise and SavingStar?
Yes. In fact, SavingStar (which was created as an independent company when it was spun out from Upromise) provides the eCoupons for the Upromise service. You may register for both the Upromise and SavingStar services, including registering your same store loyalty cards in each service. However, you may only activate a particular eCoupon in one service during a single promotion period. In the future, you’ll see SavingStar powering other rewards services as well.
My store is participating, but it doesn’t have a store loyalty card. How do I save at my store?
There are a handful of SavingStar participating retailers that do not have traditional store loyalty cards. Some have “Upromise keytags” resulting from their participation in the Upromise Grocery eCoupons program which SavingStar powers. In these cases, you may register the retailer’s Upromise keytag in your SavingStar account. As is the case with any card that you register, SavingStar will know to credit the account that you have used to activate any particular eCoupon offer. If you don’t have one of these keytags you can get one at the retailers’ customer service desk. (Note: you don’t need to be a Upromise member to register a Upromise keytag with SavingStar or to save with SavingStar.) Other retailers have other forms of unique identification numbers, such as phone numbers, that can be used. See the card registration page in your Account for details regarding each individual retailer.
