Posted October 25, 2013
SavingStar.com SavingStar.com is offering a new way to save money with the SavingStar Cashback Mall.
The Cashback Mall is basically a reward program that allows you to earn .5% to 10% cash back on purchases to retailers that are made through the Cashback Mall. Some of the participating retailers include Staples.com, JCPenney, Groupon, Macy's, Home Depot, QVC and more. The percentage you get back depends on the store.
To use the program, go to the SavingStar.com homepage make sure you are logged in. Click on Cashback Mall in the top navigation. Then pick the store you want to shop at or use the categories section to pick a store. Shop as you normally would online and then earn savings back into your SavingStar account (usually within 10 days). Each store offers different cash back amounts from .5% - 10% and you can see the percent when you look at the website. If you use ebates or other cash back programs, you will see that it is similar.
You will also find that they have a new Online Coupon Codes section as well.
New to SavingStar? Here is how it works:
SavingStar.com allows you to register your store reward cards and then load digital coupons to your store reward card. What is unique about this program is that the coupon discount does not come off at the register. The savings are added to your SavingStar account and when it reaches $5, you can cash the savings in for a gift card. You can choose to receive an Amazon gift card, have the money deposited into your Paypal account or checking account or donate it to AmericanForests.org.
When you sign up for the program, you will enter the reward card numbers for the reward cards you wish to register. Then, they will automatically link the eCoupons you select to all of your cards. Participating stores in our area include CVS, Rite Aid, Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Food Lion and Kroger. They also have iPhone and Android apps available.
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. Although it does not say on the site, you should be able to use paper coupons with no issue in addition to these SavingStar.com coupons.
