Using SavingStar to Earn Money
SavingStar is a neat digital coupon service that I hope you will give a second look!
With SavingStar, you sign up online at their website at www.savingstar.com. After registering (very simple and easy) and entering your store savings card numbers, you can click coupons that will immediately go to your store shopper cards. They stay there until they expire (about 3-5 weeks). When you purchase those items, your savings will appear on your receipt but they will not come off your total bill. Instead, your savings will go to your account online with SavingStar and when you have at least $5, you can redeem the funds by requesting they be sent to Paypal (online bank) or you can get an Amazon.com gift certificate. There is also an option to donate the funds to American Forests. Either way, it really is like earning money without doing any extra work other than clicking the items you will buy.
The stores in our area (Wilmington, NC) that accept SavingStar coupons are: Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Food Lion, CVS and Rite Aid. Wal-Mart, Piggly Wiggly, and Walgreens were not listed on their website as stores that will accept the SavingStar digital coupons.
Sometimes SavingStar seems to go through periods where they don't have very many good coupons but I believe they are getting better. In fact, today I received an email saying they had added new coupons. Below are some of the great coupons that I clicked and added to my account:
$.50 off Pepperidge Farms Goldfish
$.40 off 3 Campbell's Condensed Soups
$1.00 off 2 Cheetos or Fritos
$1.00 off 2 Boursin Cheese Products
$1.00 off 2 Campbell's Kettle Soups
$1.00 off 2 V8 V-Fusion Juices
$.50 off Yo-Baby Organic Yogurt 4-pack
$.50 off Stonyfield Organic Yogurt
$1.00 off 1 Irish Springs Deoderant or Antiperspirant
$1.00 off 2 Eggbeaters
$1.00 off 2 Marie Callendars Fresh Flavor Steamers
$1.00 off Lowes Foods Cooking Oil
$.75 off Lowes Foods Grape Juice
$.50 off Jolly Time Microwave Popcorn
There are many more coupons, but I just wanted to list a few. Again, it's free and doesn't hurt anything for you to click on these. If you buy the items, you earn money!
Also, you can use paper coupons along with the SavingStar coupons, although SavingStar does not promote that.
You can also easily print a list of all coupons that you have clicked to keep in your binder. Just look to the upper right and click "print list."
I hope you will give SavingsStar a try!
