There are many store loyalty programs out there, and the majority of them are free. We’re going to break them down — from the best store loyalty programs for couponers, to food and restaurant loyalty programs. By the end, you’ll be getting all the freebies and goodies!
But before you join any of these, be sure to download the official Krazy Coupon Lady app.
Best Loyalty Programs for Couponers
If you’re a Target shopper and not using Target Circle, then you’re losing money. You can clip manufacturer coupons and store coupons, and they can be stacked with sales and rebate offers too. New offers come out daily, but a big chunk becomes available on Sundays with the new Target sale ad. KCL has tons of Target Circle insider secrets — check them out!
If you want to save more, consider getting a Target RedCard. There’s a debit and credit card option, but both will save you 5%. Plus, enjoy free shipping when you order from Target.com along with 30 extra days to return items. There’s no advantage to having the credit card over the debit, so choose which one makes the most sense for you. Either way…the Target RedCard totally justifies your shopping trips!
CVS ExtraCare Rewards
ExtraCare is the CVS loyalty rewards program, and it’s how you start earning ExtraBucks — basically store credit — and one of the best things about shopping at CVS. This is how you unlock the in-store sales prices, ExtraBucks exclusive coupons, and earn more ExtraBucks throughout the year.
Want to learn how to coupon at CVS and use your ExtraCare card too? We’ve got you.
