I joined SavingStar in October 2012 and love this program! Go here to sign up for your own account now. What is SavingStar? Think of them as coupons you don’t need to print or cut out. They are ecoupons you attach to your Piggly Wiggly Preferred Card, Pick N Save Card or Festival Foods. Since Festival Foods doesn’t have a card, register the ‘Upromise keytag’ available at the front desk. You don’t need to be a Upromise member to get that card and register it with SavingStar.
SavingStar coupons don’t come off your total at the store, rather they get applied to your online SavingStar account 2-30 days after purchasing the product and using your store card. It’s like getting cash back for purchasing certain items. You will get an email letting you know when that money has been applied to your SavingStar account. In my experience, it has taken less than a week for my account to be credited. Basically by using SavingStar, you could potentially use up to 3 coupons on one product! You can use a manufacturer coupon, store coupon and also have the SavingStar ecoupon applied to your online account. Once you reach $5, you can redeem that for various gift cards, PayPal or direct bank deposit.
Below is an example of the email you will receive when your account has been credited (click on the picture to enlarge it if necessary). The subject will be ‘Savings added to your account!’.
