Did you know there are electronic coupon savings that you can add to your store savings cards online and the deduction will automatically come off at the time of purchase (as long as you remember to have them scan your loyalty card)? Since I used some of these savings today on my trip to Dominick's I thought I would make it this week's coupon tip to make sure you are taking advantage of ALL the coupon savings available to you.
The best part about Electronic Coupon Savings is that they can be used in addition to traditional clipable coupons. This helps to double your savings!!
Avenu Savings (available for Jewel) - Enter your card number to activate your savings. You MUST check and activate each day before you shop for the savings to automatically be deducted. Offers change on a mid week and weekly basis. Right now my Avenu has $1/1 Febreeze product that would work great with the Jewel P&G catalina deal because I could also use a $1/1 coupon making my total savings $2 off one item! You might remember Avenu terminals being at the front of Jewel stores and you would scan your card and it would print out a sheet of the available savings. It works the same way, except that you do it all online! Sometimes there are limits for the amount of discounts you can use (i.e. 2 per visit) but the savings stays for the duration of the week.
Cellfire (available for Dominicks) - Program hooks up to your cellphone but you don't have to download the cell application to be able to load the electronic savings to your Dominick's loyalty card. New savings available for 2 weeks and don't expire for a month, so sometimes you can have multiples of the same offer added to your card at the same time and they BOTH will come off your purchase (like today I had 2 Pillsbury Refrigerated cookie dough for $1/2, one that I added 2 weeks ago and 2 that I added today and they BOTH came off). Plus you can combine with a regular clipable coupon too! Once you use the discount it disappears from your card but if it comes back you can re-add it!
Shortcuts (available for Dominicks) - Add savings to your Dominick's card. Works the same way as Cellfire does. You can combine a regular coupon with these electronic savings also. Once you use the discount it disappears from your card but if it comes back you can re-add it!
P&G eSaver (available for Dominicks) - Limit one use per savings added to card. You can also combine a regular coupon with this e-savings.
Softcoin (available for Dominicks) - Limit one use per savings added to card. You can also combine a regular coupon with this e-savings.
