Extreme Couponing Tip: Sign Up for Grocery Store Loyalty Cards
One of the first steps to shopping at many stores is to sign up for their store loyalty card. When you do, you’ll get access to a lot of great perks!
Enroll: Loyalty cards are almost always free. Sign up in-store at most locations by simply asking a cashier or going to the customer service desk. Begin using your card immediately to receive store discounts.
Online: Register your card over the Internet to access other benefits and promotions like eCoupons, store coupons, exclusive emails & postal mailers. Most cards can be linked to your phone number so you don’t have to bring the card.
Fuel it up: Many grocery stores now offer fuel perk programs when you spend a certain amount in-store. Savings are usually $0.03- $0.10 a gallon – though sometimes more! Keep a lookout for double point days where your dollars count extra towards fuel credit. Simply swipe your card at participating pumps to get your discount.
Tracked purchases: Having a store loyalty card lets stores track what you buy, which leads to specific discounts, such as Safeway’s Just 4 U program, mailed store coupons, and Catalinas based on your consumer patterns. If your Catalina doesn’t print, you’ll need to have your store loyalty card number and receipt to request it.
