11/12 KVOA Savvy Savings Electronic Coupon Story


Welcome, KVOA viewers!  Here's the information
from the story that will aired TODAY on the 4 p.m. news program.




When we think of coupons, we normally think of those that come in the Sunday paper or printable coupons available online. Cutting coupons can be very time consuming. For this reason and others, clip-less coupons have been growing in popularity. Using online websites, you can upload coupons directly to your Grocery Store Loyalty cards.

Cellfire Coupons

One of the most popular of these websites is Cellfire. Since the time they were Founded in 2005, Cellfire has issued more than 10 million coupons and delivered over $50 million in savings. For the Tucson area, cellfire offers coupons that can be loaded directly onto your Fry's card. It's free to register for cellfire, they just ask you for your cell phone #, year of birth, zip code, and the number on your Fry's discount card.

You select the coupons that you would like to have, and within an hour they are ready to use at any Fry's grocery store.

Load your Cellfire coupons now so they're available for your next grocery shopping trip.

Load Cellfire coupons on your grocery card for these stores:
Kroger, City Mart, Fry's, Gerbes, Cala Bell, JayC, Owens, QFC, Smith's, Dillons, Hilander, Ralph's, Scott's, King Soopers, Baker's, Fred Meyer

Shortcuts.com works the same way as cellfire except they offer coupons that can be loaded on your loyalty card for both Fry's and Safeway. Frysfood.com is currently offering $150 in coupons that can be placed directly to your savings card as well.

With the swipe of your store discount card, clipless coupons can bring you great savvy savings.

How do I use electronic coupons? Grocery coupons get saved directly to your grocery store savings cards. Your coupons are automatically redeemed when you use your card at checkout! Match the coupons with sales in the store for even greater savings.

Do electronic coupons have expiration dates? Yes. They usually give you anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months to use the loaded coupons.

How often do they change or update their coupons? Cellfire updates their coupons every other Tuesday. The rest of the websites update their coupon list on a monthly basis.

Is there a way to print out a list of my saved grocery coupons for when I go shopping? Yes from all 3 websites you can print a list of your saved ecoupons. I take a list with me to the store, so I can be reminded of what is on my card. The list also tells me the expiration date on the coupons.

Are there any other websites with electronic coupons? Yes, Upromise.com is also currently offering $31.80 in electronic coupons that can be redeemed at Fry's and Safeway. The main difference is that the product savings is deposited into your Upromise college savings account versus coming off of your total at check out. I've placed the information on all 4 websites on mysavvysavings.com.
