This is such a grey area of couponing; Those E-coupons. What are they? Who takes them? Can they stack? These are all questions I know I have had at one time or another! So, read on and learn all about E-coupons and how they can help you save!
What are E-coupons?
E-Coupons are Electronic Coupons. They basically attach to a store savings card and automatically discount certain items. There is no paper to hand over. Target also has a version that is sent to your mobile phone. The clerk scans the bar code on your phone and it will automatically discount for the items purchased.
You have to logon to the e coupon companies website monthly to load the coupons to your cards.
Who takes E-Coupons?
I am not lucky enough to have a chain around me that takes them, except Target. Stores like Kroger, Safeway, Vons, and many others take e-coupons!
Do they stack?
From what I understand, yes they do! You can use a paper coupon with an e-coupon. You can also use them with a store coupon. Double check with the customer service desk at your store, but there shouldn’t be a problem with it.
Where do I find them?
There are several sites that offer them. The most popular are
Upromise is different
Upromise e-coupons are different! You can use them at any store that you have a key tag registered to Upromise. Publix even offers a Upromise Key tag at Customer Service! The only difference is, instead of the coupon amount coming off of your bill. It goes into your Upromise account for your child, or grandchild’s college education! You can sign up for a Upromise account and load coupons to your card today! I always load them all every month, because you never know what you might find on sale. 🙂
