SavingStar.com: What it is and why you should sign-up!

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


If you haven't signed up for SavingStar (it's FREE!!), here is a brief explanation of what it is and a step-by-step guide to help get you started. As new rebates come out I'll send reminders to SavingStar users to sign into their account and activate the new e-coupons that interest them.


What is SavingStar?
Basically you create a SavingStar account online, add your store loyalty cards to your profile (Tops Markets, Wegmans, Rite-Aid & CVS are participating stores in our area), then activate your online coupon savings in your account by clicking the orange "I Want This!" button. Once you purchase the item(s), you'll receive the savings deposited directly into your SavingStar account within 7-30 days. This is a great way to save even more money and not have to clip any paper! Note, you need a minimum of $5.00 in your account to request a payout (via direct deposit, PayPal account, Upromise account, Starbucks gift code, iTunes gift code, or AMC Theatres gift code).

Steps to Sign-Up for SavingStar:
  1. Head over here to sign-up for your FREE SavingStar account.
  2. Then click "My Account" in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Next click the tab "Stores" and enter your zip to get a list of participating retailers.
  4. Get your savings/bonus cards for CVS, Rite-Aid, Tops Markets, Wegmans, and/or any others that participate in your area. Enter them in the spaces provided. Click the orange "Add Card" buttons for each one you enter.
  5. You can now also purchase items at various other participating stores and submit a picture of your receipt through the Savingstar app or online! This includes Target, Dollar General, Walgreens, Family Dollar and Walmart.
  6. Once you are done adding all the retailers you shop at in your area click "Grocery Offers" in the top right.
  7. Browse through all the e-coupons available and click the orange "I Want This!" button for each one you are interested in. The e-coupon will be activated and the next time you use your loyalty card or upload a receipt from one of the participating stores, you'll receive the activated savings in your SavingStar Account.  No clipping, sorting or carrying of coupons!
If you have any questions about this awesome program, let me know. You only need $5.00 to cash out too, so it shouldn't be long before you can get your money back. Especially following me because I reference it frequently!

  1. I thought that Savingstar used the retail price of the item and not what you actually paid to get to your goal? It seems that the Purex deal is tracking at the sale price paid and not the retail.

    1. Which store Stephanie? It only tracks retail at Tops (and I think Wegmans too).

  2. CVS tracked the sale price a few months back not retail like I thought.
