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.

One of My Faves – Italian Pasta Salad!
by: L.A. O’Neil

Cold pasta salads are one of my favorite things to eat, as well as one of my favorite meals to prepare. If I let myself, I could pound down a giant bowl of this tasty salad in no time – of course, my hips and thighs would be screaming in protest, so I try to keep my servings at an acceptable level. Anyway, it’s easy and with only a few ingredients that you probably have in your ‘fridge, you can whip one up in no time. This week, Kroger’s has the Kroger salad dressings on sale for only $1.25, so if you don’t feel like making an Italian Pasta Salad, you can enjoy this salad by using a ranch or any flavor of dressing! This salad goes a long way, and it tastes better on the second day.

Rotini pasta4 or 5 fresh,
button mushroom,
slicedCheddar cheese, cut into about ½ inch cubes
¼ C. fresh green onions (scallions), tops only, sliced on the bias
Kroger’s Italian Salad Dressing

Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and rinse in cold water to stop cooking.Add mushrooms, cheddar cheese and green onions. Toss gently. Add enough Italian dressing sothat the pasta is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. The pasta will soak up the dressing quite a bit – so, if after the down time in the refrigerator, you need to add a little more Italian dressing, go right ahead. If you prefer to use a penne or a pasta other than rotini, that’s okay, too. Just make sure that when you’re cooking the pasta, you don’t overdo it – it should be ‘al dente,’ which means it should have a slight firmness to the pastawithout tasting starchy or floury.

When I cook, I try to prepare meals that can do double duty – this salad will serve as an entire meal or a side for lunch or dinner. (I feel compelled to confess that I’ve eaten this for breakfast, too – maybe it’s the ‘pizza for breakfast’ kind of thing!) The ingredients are what my family likes – the great thing about this recipe is that you can add just about any fresh veggie and it will be great!

Happy summer cooking!
