New Savingstar deals: 20% off Bananas

Posted August 23, 2016

SavingStar has a new produce discount for 20% off of Bananas!

You can take advantage of this deal from 8/23/16 until 8/29/16.

You'll also find new offers for Advil, Centrum, Dove hair care, L’Oréal Paris Root Cover Up Spray and Preparation H.

The 20% off produce offer is valid on purchases of loose, unwrapped produce up to $10 (maximum $2 reward). This offer is not eligible on produce weighed and tagged using a produce scale prior to checkout.

Head to to load the offers to your account and then check back every Tuesday for a new healthy produce offer. Remember, the discount does not come off at the register. Read the details below about how this cash back program works.

New to SavingStar? Here is how it works: is a cash back coupon site. You don't print out a coupon to redeem at the register. You enter your store reward card numbers on the website, then load digital coupons to your reward cards and buy the participating products at any of the participating stores.

There are 2 types of redemption methods, depending on the store.

1. With CVS, Rite Aid, Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods & Food Lion, the redemption is automatic. Once you load the cash back offers to your account and buy the products, no additional action is required on your part to get the cash back in to your SavingStar account. The coupon savings are added to your SavingStar account a couple weeks after your purchase. You will get an e-mail from Savingstar when they have added savings to your account.

2. With Kroger, Target, Walmart, Walgreens and Family Dollar, you will need to take an extra step after you buy the offers you have loaded on to your account. After purchase, you need to scan the product barcode and take a photo of the receipt through their app and submit it to get your cash back. Although this is an extra step, it doesn't really take much time at all.

Once you have accrued $5 worth of savings in your SavingStar account, you can cash in the savings. You can choose to have the money deposited into your Paypal account or checking account or donate it to a non-profit organization.

According to their website, new coupons will become available at the first of every month. Savings will usually show up in your account between 2 days and 2 weeks depending on how long it takes the stores to give SavingStar the information. These coupons will not double. They also have iPhone and Android apps available.

    Em2s - we love bananas here as well. Your muffins sounds fabulous. I bought some today and my youngest promptly had one with Nutella and coconut flakes. So delicious!

    Very much appreciate the reminder of this SavingStar fresh produce rebate. Thank you, Faye!
    We enjoy bananas ... and I'll definitely buy enough to make some walnut-banana-oatmeal muffins (my family sorts the name by the ingredient they like the best :) Hope you and your family get to enjoy your favorite banana treat, too!
