I’m glad you asked let me explain to you the process. To begin you would need to obtain a Free membership from all your local drug stores and grocery store. This can be done either in the store or online at the stores website. For those of you who don’t know I’m referring to the little keychain cards that the cashiers are always promoting. There is no additional charge it is absolutely Free. The process of saving money starts with taking advantage of the free membership cards. The store prices are often different for membership card holder’s verses non-card holders. Some stores don’t offer a membership card by they have smart coupons. I know you’re thinking what is a smart coupon? Stores such as Family Dollar and Dollar General offer smart coupons you would have to create an account online with the store using your phone number. You would then login into the account and clip the smart coupons. Once you have clipped the smart coupons and you go to the store you would then enter your phone number at check out and whatever coupons you clipped will automatic come off your total at the register thereby reducing your out of pocket cost.
You can also download apps for the stores and have them on your phone. I personally shop at several different stores, but I don’t have all the apps on my phone. I only have the apps for the stores that I go to the most. It is very convenient to have them handy while in the store in case you need to check to see a coupon is on the app. If you don’t add them to your phone I suggest you download all the coupons to your card or either, make sure you are planning your couponing trips so they will already be added to your card upon arrival at the store.
If you are app savvy, there are some apps that can be downloaded to help you with this process. I have just listed the ones that I use and have been the most successful with using. There are several others that are out there for you to use.
