 How to useSavingStar is a eCoupon site.  They have manufacturer’s coupons. SavingStar offers are redeemable at more stores than ever!

1. Click the eCoupons you want to load them to your store loyalty card (See How to use Savingstar for a step by step guide)

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 gift cards, Paypal, or other payment forms!

Everything you want to know about Savingstar

What is SavingStar?

SavingStar is the smart and simple way to save on your groceries and online shopping. Grocery offers are fully digital with nothing to clip or print. SavingStar has over 7 million members and was founded in 2011.

How do I use SavingStar eCoupons?

SavingStar is a paperless way of saving with eCoupons that link to your existing grocery and drug store loyalty cards. Here’s how it works: after a one-time registration of your store cards, saving is quick and easy. Simply click the eCoupons you want on or our iPhone® or Android® apps and we’ll link your eCoupons to all of your registered store cards. When you use your card at checkout like you normally do, your savings are automatically added to your SavingStar account. (Note: your grocery bill will stay the same.) Once your savings reach $5, you can pick your payout from a deposit into your bank or PayPal account, an Amazon gift card, or a donation to American Forests.

What options are available as payouts from my SavingStar account and how do I get them?

When you accumulate $5 worth of savings you will be able to pick what type of payout you want. You can cash out to a bank account, PayPal account, Upromise account, Starbucks gift code, iTunes gift code, or AMC Theatres gift code. Payouts occur within 24-48 hours of being requested. Gift codes will be emailed to your SavingStar account email address. You can also donate your earnings to American Forests.

Does SavingStar offer iPhone® or Android® apps?

Yes! If you haven’t already done so, click here for iPhone® and here for Android® to download the apps. These apps allow you to choose eCoupons while on the go – including while you are shopping – and also help you remember which items to purchase to redeem your eCoupons.

Which stores participate in SavingStar?

Over 60,000 stores participate in SavingStar, representing over 100 retail chains. Click here to see a list of retailers. If your favorite store is not listed as a participating retailer, please let them know that you would like them to join SavingStar!

When do I need to activate a SavingStar offer?

In order to be guaranteed credit for a SavingStar offer or One or Many offer, they must be activated in your account before you make any purchases. For Receipt-Scan Stores, you may also activate the offer within the same day of that you make the purchase.

We recommend activating any offers in which you are interested as soon as possible. The brands who sponsor our offers sometimes limit number of activations per offer. Because of this, some popular offers may sell out quickly, and activating an offer will be sure that it’s available for you until it expires

How quickly do my savings post to my SavingStar account?

All savings will be posted to your SavingStar account within 2-22 days, allowing you to track exactly how much you’ve saved over time. We’ll also send you an email to alert you when your savings post.

How often are new offers available?

Every first of the month they have new offers, and they typically have new offers on Thursdays and Sundays, although new deals may become available at any time. They also post a new Healthy Offer of the Week each Tuesday.

My store is participating, but it doesn’t have a store loyalty card. How do I save at my store?

See my post on How to Use Savingstar

I’m a member of Upromise and see that its Grocery offers are powered by SavingStar. Can I participate in both Upromise and SavingStar?

Yes. SavingStar provides the grocery offers for the Upromise service. You may register for both the Upromise and SavingStar, including registering your same store loyalty cards in each service. However, you may only activate a particular offer in one service during a single promotion period. In the future, you’ll see SavingStar powering other rewards services as well.

Right now on Amazon you can score 21 Hershey’s 2% Chocolate Milk Boxes for 40% off + Free Shipping PLUS another 15% off if you use Subscribe and Save!  I am not sure, but talking with my friend Sassy Saver, we think that these would be $3.99 for a 6-pack at most stores, so $10.36 shipped for 21 is a great deal!  That is $.49 per unit.

These are $21 for 27 boxes at Dollar Tree, so that makes this deal look pretty good!  That’s $.79 per unit.

I am all about throwing in some yummy chocolate milk for my kids lunch boxes on special days!

Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide

This is my in-depth coupon clipping slicing & organizing  video.  It covers:

  1. Where to get coupons (I have negotiated the lowest multi-copy Sunday rates here!)
  2. Coupon binder vs. filing method
  3. Slice Coupon Cutter (no more scissors for me!)
  4. Pre-sorting categories as you slice coupons
  5. Showing my coupon binder & categories I use (view them HERE)

I have gotten so many emails asking about my Slice Coupon Cutter – you can scoop up a slice safety cutter here on for just $6 plus free super saver shipping!

UPDATE: I got a new binder cover from Coupon Clutch that you’ll love- check it out below!

Save 15% off your Coupon Clutch binder by using the code CUCKOO at checkout!

Here’s a video of me and my new coupon binder when I first got it!

Today is like extreme couponing gone crazy on Amazon for toilet paper!

Keep in mind my TP stock up prices!

Seventh Generation Bathroom Tissue, 2-ply, 300 Sheets, 12-Count (Pack of 4) comes out to 0.002 per sheet after subscribe & save! Learn more about Subscribe and Save to get it free with Amazon Mom!

Charmin Ultra Strong, 12 Mega Rolls (Pack of 4) $0.0029/sheet UPDATE: it is not subscribe and save but IS $.25 per single roll which is a great price shipped right to your house! 12 rolls times 4 (they are mega rolls) = 48 reg rolls, plus you get 4 packs, so 48 x 4= 192 single rolls divided by $49.80 = $.25 per single roll. I always calculate stock up price on 2-ply single rolls to compare apples to apples.

There’s also another deal that is okay but not as great: Charmin Ultra Strong 9 Large Rolls, 132 2-Ply Sheets per Roll (Pack of 5) $0.0048 per sheet

Amazon prices change fast so JUMP on this if you want it!

What are you waiting for??? If you are using Google or any other search engine you are losing money.  Just use Swagbucks search engine for all your searches and get paid in SWAGBUCKS!  So right now is the best time to sign up for swagbucks – because you can get 50 free swags + the regular 30 with code AUGUSTBONUS


I love swagbucks! It’s like they are the lottery and they “loosen their slots” on Fridays. Basically, how Swag Bucks works is you use them for your search engine. They are powered by Google and Sometimes when you search, you randomly will get a message “You’ve Won 7 Swagbucks” or some other amount. Sign up for Swagbucks here.

It takes 450 swags to get a $5 gift card – my brother is a typical guy doing searches for college, and gets 1 $5 gift card per month.  I get much more than that, since you can refer people and get points for referring people.  So refer your friends too!

MORE Ways to earn swags then just doing your regular daily seraches – thanks to FreeFlys:

Online polls: Don’t forget you can get a Swagbuck every day at online polls. These are one-click easy polls to take.

Share Your Birthday: Enter your birthday and get 50 free swag bucks on your birthday!

Trading in Cell Phones and Video Games: You can earn Swag Bucks for each phone you trade-in up to 3,000 Swag Bucks per phone; there is no limit to how many phones you can recycle.

Finding Swag Codes Sometimes swag codes are released on their Twitter, Facebook, or blog, and I can’t tell you the codes or they’d close my account, but I CAN notify you when they’re released so you can find the code yourself!

Inviting your friends to join For every Swag Buck they win searching the web, you’ll win the same amount! Win up to 1,000 Swag Bucks per referral!

Playing Games Play games for free and you will randomly earn from 1-5 Swag Bucks or you can also buy into tournaments where you risk a small amount of Swag Bucks for the chance to earn a large amount.

Watching videos I haven’t had good luck with this method.

Sending in prize photos and videos 10 Swag Bucks for a photo of you with your prize, 20 swags for a video of you opening your prize! Upload the video to and send the url link of your video to to claim your swags.
