SavingStar FREEBIE: Prego or Pace Ready Meal!

Posted September 18, 2015

Score a FREE Pace or Prego Ready Meal with the SavingStar freebie this week!

You have until Sunday, September 20 to activate the offer and pick up the product. Then the price you paid will be credited back to your Savingstar account once you buy the item.

Reminder: You have until 9/21 to save 20% off of avocados, as well.

Head to to load the offers to your account.

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 receive an Amazon gift card, 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.

    miranda5 - they are on the Express Lane at Lowes Foods for $2.69 each. Your HT may also have them but the Express Lane may not have been updated yet since it's a newer product.

    Anyone see them anywhere else?

    Do not see either Pace or Prego Ready Meal on HT Express Lane. Does anyone know which stores carry these?
