eCoupons 101: How to Use eCoupons

eCoupons may be used at many stores.  Stores accepting eCoupons include all Safeway affiliate stores and all Kroger affiliate stores. What are eCoupons?
eCoupons are electronic coupons that you load to your store loyalty card. eCoupons are manufacturer coupons that require no clipping, printing, or sorting. They load directly from the internet to your store loyalty card. When you buy the item and enter your loyalty card information, the coupon will automatically be deducted.

Where do I find eCoupons?
Store Websites
Go to your store’s home site, log in to your account, and add coupons to your store loyalty card (Lowes Foods, Kroger, Food Lion, etc).
You select the eCoupons you like and they'll link them to your store loyalty cards.Use your loyalty card at checkout (note: The total on your receipt does not change at checkout and the savings are not printed on the receipt). Your money will automatically be added to your SavingStar account within 2-22 days. Once you save $5, you get to choose from these payout option (paypal, amazon gift card, direct deposit, etc).

eCouponing FAQs:

Q. If I load a coupon for $1.00/1 peanut butter, can I buy 4 peanut butters and save $4?
A. No. Only 1 coupon is loaded per card. If you buy 4 of the same item the savings will only be deducted one time.
Q. I loaded some coupons onto my store card- but they were for things I won’t use. How can I remove them?
A. You can view you active eCoupons and should be able to remove them.  They will disappear when they expire.
Q. I loaded coupons from Cellfire and Shortcuts onto the same card. Some of the coupons were for the same product, and I want to make sure the higher value coupon comes off first. Is there a way?
A. Nope. If you are buying 2 products, then both coupons will be taken off, but you can’t control which one comes off first, if you are only buying one.
Q. Can I use regular manufacturer coupons with the eCoupons on the same product.
A. This is technically using 2 manufacturer coupons on one item and is not allowed, but is ultimately left up to your store.
