Remember the loyalty cards that I mentioned in part one of the series? They are useful in another way:
Digital (also known as electronic) coupons are great!! They don't have to be cut
out of inserts or magazines, so they save paper. Instead, they are loaded onto your store loyalty card. Digital coupons do have expiration dates, like paper coupons. HINT: load up the coupons for all of the items you think you will use. That way, if you find an unadvertised sale on an item that you've downloaded a coupon for, you'll save even more. On the down side: Digital coupons don't double/triple like papers coupons.
I do most of my grocery shopping at Kroger. When I first learned about digital coupons, I made it a point to register my Kroger loyalty card at Kroger so that I could download the digital coupons that Kroger offers. Look at your grocery store's website and see if you can do the same.
Shortcuts is another website that offers digital coupons. Again, you need to register your store loyalty card on the website and then you can download the coupons you want.
Another digital coupon source that I use is Cellfire. Once you register, you can load the coupons onto your store loyalty card OR to your cellphone.
Hope that this entry has been helpful to you. :-)
