Time Saving

Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide

I enjoy just hanging out with my husband and my girls; I don’t want to spend my whole life clipping coupons and driving to 10 stores a week.  My husband took the picture above of me and my daughters just hanging out.  These are the best times we have and I want more.

Thus I have compiled a list of inventive ways to save time couponing, since it can be so time-consuming:

  1. Instead of clipping all the Smart Source, Red Plum, and P&G inserts yourself, find some friends each Sunday to do a coupon insert swap with.  For example, each week I clip the Smart Source coupons and one of my friends clips the P&G and Red Plum inserts.  Give them back their coupons once you’ve finished clipping them.
  2. If a store is far away, trade weeks with a friend to shop there. For example, Target is 25 miles away from me.  I print out all the deals I want to get, compile my coupons in an envelope, and give them to my friend who picks up my deals for me at Target.  I do the same for her at Rite Aid and Walgreens; they are also quite a drive away from our homes.  We make sure to have everything organized for the person who is going to make it easy for them.  We also get separate receipts at  checkout to make paying each other back easier & so we can have receipts to submit for rebates that need mailed in.
  3. If you have 3 copies of the same insert to clip, make sure to stack all the individual coupon insert pages that are similar on top of each other and cut them at once.
  4. I always save my shopping receipts because you never know when a rebate form will appear that has an item that you already purchased on it.  For example, I recently did the Coors Rebate and used a receipt for Plastic Cups that I had purchased before I even heard about the rebate. The rebate dates were so long (Dec. 15-Feb.8) it was easy to find receipts to make the rebate work.
  5. Gather all the ads for deals you want to do and price match them at Target.  Remember, they won’t price match Rite Aid Plenti Points, Walgreen’s Register Rewards, B1G1 Free and other deals where an exact price isn’t listed.  I like to shop at local stores that are running the ad to support them, plus the local stores pay for their ads, but if I don’t have time to visit them all or if the stores are too far away.
  6. Use a coupon-clipping service and order coupons in bulk.  Here is one of the cheapest (usually 5 cents per coupon) My Coupon Hunter here. Remember it will take a few days to get your coupons though.
  7. Heather from Sweet Deals 4 Mom sent me this great idea: “I do a coupon train with about 7 other people. When I get the envelopes of coupons in the mail, I take what I need, replace what I took and remove the expired ones. Pretty easy.”
  8. Kristin from Making Cents Out of Life sent me her tips: “I saves a lot of time and impulse buys just to not clip every coupon.  I have a mixed method of coupon organization…when I get organized that is :), where I leave them whole but I plan 4 weeks of sales as far in advance as I can.  I use Cuckoo for Coupons and other forums and blogs to look ahead, clip what I need and use 4 different accordion holders to store that week’s coupons until I need them.  I keep the rest of the insert filed away and when I hear of a clearance deal I go clip. Always take a notebook and pen with you when you shop so you can write down clearance deals, and run back the next day if you really want the item.  I spend less money not having my coupons with me at all times.  I miss the occasional hot deal but the pay off is worth it.  It’s hard to explain in a short (for me!) paragraph but not keeping my coupons with me all the time is usually a good thing.  If you really are afraid of missing a hot deal, take the inserts but leave them in the car.  You still don’t clip them but you have your box in the car so you can go out and clip the ones that you need if you come upon a clearance deal.  But…I despise clipping coupons and trying to stuff them into the baseball card inserts or any other insert.  Hahah.  I love using them but hate clipping!”

What ideas do you have about saving time couponing? I’d love to hear them!

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!

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 savingstar.com 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.
