What is Savingstar?

SavingStar is the first national, fully digital, grocery eCoupon service, available for free at and on iPhone and Android mobile apps. There's nothing to clip, nothing to print.

Providing exclusive eCoupons redeemable at over 24,000 grocery and drug stores throughout the country, SavingStar’s eCoupons are linked to customers’ loyalty cards and offer a more convenient and eco-friendly way to save on groceries than paper coupons. SavingStar automatically adds the value of each eCoupon redeemed into users' SavingStar accounts, enabling them to pick their payout from cash to gift cards to charity donations. (info from

If you're an old pro at couponing but have steered clear of digital coupons, now is a great time to try them out on

The national e-coupon site just added several new offers that I've never seen on SavingStar before, including two coupons for Cheerios and one for Pillsbury rolls.

I like SavingStar for several reasons:

  • The site is easy to use. Once you click on the coupons you want, they're good at any of the supermarkets and drugstores that use loyalty cards to track customers' purchases. (You can only use each coupon once, however.) You can ad several cards from the same store. I have 3 CVS cards attached to my savingstar account.
  • You're done in seconds. No clipping or filing required.
  • It's eco-friendly. If you don't end up using the coupons, you haven't wasted any paper or ink.
  • You can stack these coupons with paper coupons and store-specific digital coupons to save even more.
  • Your savings are easy to track. When you log in, you'll see your savings tally in the top right corner.
  • Can't remember what coupons you selected? There's a free app for that. Download it to your smartphone and review your coupons or add new ones while you're in the store.

At the store register, SavingStar coupons are NOT automatically deducted from your grocery order. Instead, the savings accrue in your SavingStar account. Once you've saved $5, you can have the cash deposited directly into your bank or PayPal account. Or you can choose an Amazon gift card or donate the money to charity.
