SavingStar.com uses virtual coupons to help you save - AmericaNowNews.com

Virtual coupons save money and paper

Here's the name you want to remember: SavingStar.com. Unlike other sites that allow you to print coupons to redeem in the store, this site banks the savings in an online account.

Setting up your account is simple and free. Enter the account numbers on your grocery and drug store loyalty cards. Then all you have to do is activate which coupons you want.  

When you buy the product, the coupon amount will be credited to your SavingStar account. When you reach the $5.00 mark, you can request a payout. The site can deposit to your bank account or to PayPal. You can also choose Amazon gift cards or opt to make a charitable donation. 

But here's where this gets really fun: Most of the SavingStar coupons are for products that have equivalent paper coupons. So essentially, you can double-dip and maximize your savings! 

Here's an example: A box of granola bars were $2.49. We had paper coupons worth 50 cents that doubled to a dollar, bringing the price down to $1.49. SavingStar gave us another 50 cents, so the final cost was only 99 cents. 

Some of the SavingStar coupons are store-specific, but that gives you an opportunity to save on store-brand items that don't normally have associated coupons.

To find out if stores near you participate in the program, visit their website and enter your zip code near the top of the page.
