FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If I have more than one store loyalty card registered, will the eCoupons load to all of them?

Yes! SavingStar eCoupons will load to all of your registered cards. When you buy the qualifying product(s) at any of the stores, we will reward you for the purchase.

Note that some eCoupons are designated to be available only at specific retailers. These will be marked with a yellow banner that indicates where they may be used (For example – Only at: CVS).

How do SavingStar One or Many offers work?

1. Buy in one trip or many – First, activate the offer. Then buy in one trip or many at any store where you have a card registered with SavingStar. Make sure to scan your card every time you shop.

2. Track your progress – Track your progress on SavingStar.com. You will receive your savings when you reach your goal. They will also email you after each purchase and when you’ve earned your reward. Progress & savings will post to your account within 2-22 days of purchase.

Note: Like other SavingStar offers, your grocery bill will not change – when you receive your savings they will appear in your SavingStar account.

If an eCoupon requires me to buy 2 or more of a product, does it need to be in the same transaction?

Yes, it does need to be in the same transaction. The exception is for offers labeled “One or Many” and clearly state on the offer itself “Buy in one trip or many.”
My grocery store is listed as a participating store but doesn’t have a loyalty card. How does this work?

Please click here to learn how to use SavingStar if you shop at Albertsons Market, Farm Fresh, Festival Foods, Hannaford, Hy-Vee, King Kullen, Raley’s, Redner’s, Roche Bros., Shoppers, Stater Bros., or Sweetbay.

Which stores participate in SavingStar?

Nationwide, over 24,000 stores participate in SavingStar, representing over 100 retail chains, see the entire list here.

Do SavingStar eCoupons stack with in-store discounts or manufacturer’s coupons?

SavingStar eCoupons are not intended to be used this way. Generally, manufacturers state that it is against their policies for shoppers to redeem more than one manufacturer’s coupon for the same purchase.

Using in-store coupons in combination with SavingStar eCoupons is not a problem. Using coupons from other services in combination with a SavingStar “One or Many” deal is not a problem.

    Question:
    You said we have to Scan our loyalty card at check out. Would it still work if we just punch in our phone #.
    Most places here in nyc don’t require to to have your loyalty cards physically and only ask you to enter your phone # at check out since they are lonked.

    • Debbie

      Hi Viviana, yes, as long as your card is registered in the Saving Star app, it will work if it is scanned or entered manually via your phone number.

    Has anyone had troubles redeeming Pillsbury refrigerated items? When I enter the UPC it thinks it is produce. I’ve tried adding 0000 to make it longer but no luck.

  • Jill

    I was looking at the info on a couple of products that say $1/1 item. I clicked on the info button, and noticed that it says no more than 4 identical coupons per day per person. Does that mean you can buy 4 on that receipt, and get $1 each of the 4?

    • Debbie

      Are you referring to Savingstar offers? Can you send me a link to one you are questioning? Or give me a product name/store where you are seeing this?

      • Jill

        I think I figured it out. I think it means using coupons with it. The loreal $1/1 then you click the “I” for info and it states no more than 4 identical coupons per day per person. But they all say that.

    Savingstar has been around for a while. Do people use it? Do you have success with money posting to your account 2-22 days later? Do you have success with payout?

      I have never had a problem with Savingstar.
