Do paper coupons have you feeling confused and cluttered? Are you looking for another solution to save money that doesn’t involve clipping? Welcome to the world of Digital Coupons. Digital coupons are free, easy to use and are accessible while in the process of shopping.


Digital Coupon Benefits:

  • Load on your shopper’s card via computer
  • Load on your shopper’s card via mobile device, even while you shop
  • Use your phone number and receive your savings at checkout
  • No hauling paper coupons and forgetting them at home
  • Absolutely FREE – No need to subscribe to a newspaper

Digital Coupon Disadvantage:

  • You get what you get – No searching or printing for a higher value coupon.
  • Sometimes they do not work – Computer error is unavoidable. This may happen on occasion and you may miss savings. *Tips – You may always speak to your customer service manager for help.
  • If you have a digital coupon loaded, and a paper coupon in hand, some stores will automatically take the digital coupon. This may be a disadvantage if your paper coupon is of greater value.
