The digital wave of couponing has brought about more ways than ever to save—no scissors needed! Electronic coupons (known as eCoupons) can shave down your grocery bill with minimal effort.

The first step in getting eCoupons is to sign up for store loyalty cards at each store where you shop. These free cards are usually available at the register or customer service.

To access eCoupons, go online to the specific store’s website (such as Safeway.com or Kroger.com) or the master list on the KCL eCoupon Database and the following sources:

Scan through the available eCoupons and select the “Add” or “Clip” button to load them. When you’re finished, go to the section often labeled “My Coupons” or “My Card” for your full list, which you’ll want to keep handy on paper or on your smartphone. When planning a weekly shopping list, make note of matching eCoupons. Make sure to have your full list handy while shopping just in case you come across an unexpected deal!

When scanning your loyalty card at the cash register (or giving your phone number) you will automatically receive the savings when making a qualifying purchase. Electronic coupons are one-time use, and at the great majority of stores, eCoupons cannot be combined with a paper manufacturer coupon.
