Electronic Coupons - What are you talking about??

Are they paper? No. Can you print them? No. Well if you can't print them how do you use the? Here is how!

There are at least two websites in the business of electronic coupons. These get loaded onto your shoppers card. When you scan your shoppers card at the store, the coupons get applied to your order. Seems simple enough right. You got it! Although, with that being said, I have had coupons not come off correctly. If this happens you should contact the company. By providing your receipt they can verify that you did in fact buy the correct item, and that you had the correct coupon on your card at that time. I am not exactly sure how the "refunding" process works for this, but most companies are great about fixing errors, if you ask!

$hortcuts.com is one that I use frequently.  Do keep in mind that even if your store doubles coupons, these coupons do NOT double.

They are currently can be used at the following stores:
  • Baker's
  • Carrs/Safeway
  • City Market
  • Dillons
  • Dominicks
  • Frys
  • Genuardi's
  • Gerbes
  • Hilander
  • Jay C
  • King Soopers
  • Kroger
  • Owen's
  • Pavillions
  • Pay Less
  • QFC
  • Ralphs
  • Randalls
  • Safeway
  • Smiths
  • Tom Thumb
  • Vons
Cellfire is another electronic coupon site.  Here you can register your mobile number to get coupons sent directly to your cell phone (I advise unlimited text plan when using any service like this.  The service itself is free, however charges may apply for data/text messaging).  The coupons that you can have sent to your phone are from participating stores.  You can find out the information by entering your zip code.  The grocery coupons are actually loaded onto your shoppers card, the same as Shortcuts.  Again, these coupons do not double, even if your store doubles.

Always frequently check the sites, as new content can be added at any time!
