Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide
What is an eCoupon, Loadable or Clipless coupon?
An eCoupon is an electronic coupon get online in a similar manner to a printable coupon.  Instead of printing the coupon, you load it onto your store loyalty card.  When you scan your loyalty card at the cash register, or give your phone number, you will automatically receive the savings if you’ve made a qualifying purchase!

There are a lot of ecoupon sites; some take savings right off your receipt and you pay less out of pocket.  Others have you take the savings and put them in savings accounts.  Read about each ecoupon site below and how they work.

Cellfire eCoupons: Go to Cellfire.com and enter in your store loyalty card #, then click on the new eCoupons to add them to your card.  You can use these at all the stores in the picture above!  Most Cellfire offers are updated every other Tuesday. ShopRite, Giant Eagle, and Shop ‘n Save grocery coupons are updated every other Sunday.  So those are the days you will want to upload all your cellfire coupons before your shopping trip.  Cellfire coupons used to be able to be stacked with physical copies of coupons, but recently they changed this policy.  Cellfire coupons come right off your total and so you pay less at the register just like a regular coupon.

Go to UPromise.com and enter in your store loyalty card #, then click on “coupons & deals” then “Grocery eCoupons”.  Then you select ALL the eCoupons.  I try to do this the 1st day of every month since normally that is when their coupons re-fresh.  You can use these coupons at many different stores, when you login you can enter your zip code and it will tell you the participating stores in your area.   These coupons actually don’t come off your total at the register, instead the savings are put into a college account for your children.

Rite Aid accepts Upromise! Go to UPromise.com and enter in your Rite Aid Wellness store loyalty card #, then click on “coupons & deals” then “Grocery eCoupons”.  Then you select ALL the eCoupons.  I try to do this the 1st day of every month since normally that is when their coupons re-fresh – I also add the coupons to my Smith’s (KROGER) card. These also don’t come off at the register and work just like regular UPromise coupons.

Sam’s Club now has eCoupons! Well, these are pretty new so they aren’t famous yet, but if you are a Sam’s Club Plus Memeber you will definately want to login and load your Sam’s Club eCoupons to your card!  There are over $300 in savings on  Sam’s Club eCoupons site per year!  These come right off at the register!

There are a lot of ecoupon sites; some take savings right off your receipt and you pay less out of pocket. Some sites will give savings like Home Depot coupons and from other top retailers based on a point system.

SavingStar: These are manufacturer’s coupons. Available at CVS, Rite-Aid, Albertsons, Dillon’s, Kroger, Ralph’s, and many more.

  1. Click the eCoupons you want to load them to your store loyalty card
  2. Shop – use your loyalty card at checkout.  However, no coupons will come off your total.
  3. Your SavingStar account will grow with the coupons you used, and you will get to redeem them once you have saved over $5 in the form of Amazon.com gift cards, Paypal, or other payment forms!  Read my How to Use Saving Star Guide!

P&G eSaver: They also offer ecoupons!  I don’t use them as much, but they are worth looking at.  They come off your total at the register.

These offers are added to the Cuckoo Deals Coupon Database as well to make matching them with store deals even easier!
