Downloadable Grocery Coupons

By

Tired of clipping, printing and organizing piles of coupons each week? Then, start downloading coupons to your grocery card or cell phone instead. It's the paper-free, hassle-free approach to couponing, and it's really catching on.

How to Download Coupons to Your Grocery Card

Sign up at one of the many eCoupon websites; register your grocery store loyalty card(s); then, log in each week before you shop to choose which coupons you want to add to your card. When the cashier scans your store card at checkout, your coupons will automatically be deducted from the total due.
