SavingStar - New eCoupon Service

submitted on July 9, 2011 by HouTex in "Coupons / Coupon Codes"
Has anyone heard of SavingStar? You can join for free. https://savingstar.com/how_it_works

You select coupons and link them to your loyalty cards. But you don't see the savings at checkout, they accumulate in your account until you reach a minimum of $5 and request a payout. You can get paid via bank deposit, Paypal or Amazon gift card, or donation to charity. You can enter your zip code at https://savingstar.com/ to see which stores in your area are participating.


SavingStar is the first national, fully digital, grocery eCoupon service, available for free at http://www.savingstar.com and on iPhone and Android mobile apps. There's nothing to clip, nothing to print.

Providing exclusive eCoupons redeemable at over 24,000 grocery and drug stores throughout the country, SavingStar’s eCoupons offer a more convenient and eco-friendly way to save on groceries than paper coupons. SavingStar automatically adds the value of each eCoupon redeemed into users' SavingStar accounts, enabling them to pick their payout from cash to gift cards to charity donations.

SavingStar’s founding team spun off from Upromise in 2010, and the company now also powers Upromise’s Grocery eCoupons.

    I wonder if the coupon variety they have is the same or worse than in the Sunday newspaper...

    CVS and Jewel Osco are the only two stores in my area that they work with

      I think the variety is probably worse than the Sunday inserts. The only reviews I can find are on the Android app page, and they are mixed. People are happy enough with the app itself, but complain about the low number of coupons available so far. Personally, I'd rather get the "instant gratification" of reducing my grocery bill by the value of the coupons than accumulate credit in my account. In my area they only support Kroger and CVS.

    I look forward to my Sunday morning with my cup of coffee, looking at the paper for deals and various coupons! Besides I can't afford a "Droid." Sad

      All you need for this (if you choose to use it) is the participating store loyalty card. The Android app market was just the only place I found any reviews.
