Last week, I wrote about three grocery apps you could use to save money. Well, there’s one more that I didn’t include called SavingStar. A few days after my post ran, I got an email from a SavingStar spokesman with information about their program. Then I checked my phone and realized I had already downloaded the SavingStar app but hadn’t used it yet. #middleage
Grocery Savings – How It Works
SavingStar offers deals from top brands which shoppers can redeem by linking them to their supermarket and drugstore loyalty cards or by taking a picture of their receipt. At Shaw’s for example, you can link deals to your MyMixx number. Go to https://savingstar.com to sign up or download the app, which is available for iPhone and Android.
SavingStar deposits the value of the deal into members’ SavingStar accounts. Savings can be cashed out to a bank or PayPal account, and coming soon to gift cards.
Healthy Offer of the Week/Freebies
Every week members can save 20% on a different healthy item (fruits/veggies).
And, with our Freebies members get an item for free (100% cash back). SavingStar says it has offered freebies for pasta, tuna fish, sugar, candy bars, dish soap, mac and cheese and more.
The spokesman says SavingStar is the only service to feature high value savings, as much as $10, on various products through our One or Many deals (you can get the savings after buying the required number of products over one or many shopping trips at one or many participating stores). For example:
– Save $5.00 when you spend $20.00 on any Little Debbie® brand products.
– Save $5.00 when you spend $30.00 on select SC Johnson products: Drano®, fantastik®, Glade®, OFF!®, Pledge®, Raid®, Saran™, Shout®, Scrubbing Bubbles®, Windex® and Ziploc®.
Cash Back Mall
Through the Cash Back Mall, members earn cash back at hundreds of online stores. SavingStar says it passes back 100% of the commission back to shoppers for Double Cash Back Every Day. For example, SavingStar users can earn 10% cash back at Groupon, 6% at Lands’ End, 7% at Hotels.com and more.
So tell me what your experience has been. Have you used SavingStar? How was it? Have you tried any of other grocery apps I wrote about previously?
