Hello to my new readers from eCO Credit Union’s Savings University 2016

I had a wonderful time speaking at another eCO Credit Union’s Savings Race seminar yesterday!  I hope all of you that were in attendance are ready to save some money!

If you haven’t already you can sign up for the  daily email newsletter here.  You can also follow me on Facebook!   (and Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram).

Here’s a recap of the things we talked about and be sure to read all the way to the end for more information I didn’t have time to cover.

To use coupons, you have to have coupons so we discussed all the many ways to get coupons. 

  • Mobile and e-coupon programs:

    • SavingStar – works with Winn-Dixie, CVS, Rite-Aid and others.  Load offers to your store card and receive it as cash back after purchase
    • Ibotta – works with CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Dollar General, Target, Publix, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Whole Foods and more! Scan your receipt and items after purchase and receive cash back (requires a smart phone)
    • Checkout51 – works at ANY store.  You can upload receipts via phone app or by taking a picture and uploading via your computer.
    • Snap by Groupon – identical to Checkout51 above.  Works at any store and can redeem via app or on your computer.
    • Shopkick – works with Target and other retailers.  There are mobile coupons to use as well as offers to earn points you can redeem for giftcards.  This one requires a smartphone
    • Shopmium -similar to Ibotta and Checkout51.  Find the app in your phone’s app store and use code MCACKKRG to get an extra freebie when you sign up!
    • Receipt HogReceive points when you upload your shopping receipts and redeem your points for gift cards!  Requires a smartphone.
    • MobiSave – simple, easy cash back! Works at any store.  Requires a smartphone

     

    Store specific coupon programs:

    Target  Mobile coupons by text and via the new Cartwheel program

    Winn-Dixie e-coupons – coupons you load to your store loyalty card to receive a discount at the time of purchase.  Cannot be stacked with manufacturer coupons, do not double and one per purchase

    Publix e-coupons –  add the coupons you want to your account.  Enter your account number (phone number) at the register to receive a discount at time of purchase.  Cannot be stacked with manufacturer coupons, do not double and one per purchase
