About 4 or 5 months ago, I started clipping coupons to save money. I watched some episodes of Extreme Couponing on TLC and got inspired. I know that I will never be as extreme as the people on that show, but I have started to get the hang of couponing. However, I know that some people do not have the time to clip coupons, so I am going to share the easiest ways to save with coupons without even getting out your scissors.
SavingStar is a website that offers eCoupons that link directly to your store loyalty cards. After joining the site (for free), you enter your loyalty card numbers for different grocery and drug store chains. You then enter your zip code to get the offers that are in your area. Once you choose your coupon offers they are activated. You won’t see the discounts when you go to the store, but once you buy a product whose offer you activated, it will show up as a savings in your SavingStar account. Once your savings reaches $5, you can redeem your money by having it deposited in the bank or PayPal account, or you can opt to have it as an Amazon gift card or even make a donation to a charity. As SavingStar says, “There’s nothing to clip, nothing to print.”list of participating stores
Cellfire is a website that loads digital coupons directly to your store loyalty cards. Once you register (for free) and give your zip code, Cellfire gives you the stores in your area that accept Cellfire coupons. You add your store loyalty card number(s) and then you can just click which coupons you want added to your card. Unlike SavingStar, you will see these discounts on your receipt when you use your loyalty card at the store. Cellfire works at over 3500 grocery stores across the U.S.
In addition, both SavingStar and Cellfire have apps that allow you to access the savings from your smartphone. So, you can save money with coupons while you are on break at work, waiting for the treadmill at the gym or laying in bed!
Check out these two sites and get started in your coupon savings now. Let me know how it goes!
