Save Money With Saving’s Angel

Posted: October 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

For over a year now, Amber has been doing a coupon program called Saving’s Angel which allows consumers to purchase grocery items at a greatly reduced fee, due to the use of coupons and rewards points, depending on the grocery store.

So, what in the world is Saving’s Angel?

Amidst turbulent economic times, Saving’s Angel has been an answer to prayer. One day I went grocery shopping with my ever frugal wife. As characteristic of Am doing so well in all she does, I found myself, along with those behind us in the checkout line, with my jaw dropped when I saw the small price we had to pay for the ginormous amount of food we purchased.

 

$51.00 was the total. Am received $44.00 in register rewards, which means she only paid $7.00 for everything!

 

Saving’s Angel tells you:

  • Which items are on sale at which stores.
  • What coupons you can use on these items (either a store coupon or manufacturer coupon or both).
  • Where to find these coupons (either in the Sunday paper or online).
  • Which items will give you reward points (which is a credit for a future purchase; most places give reward points, but not all).

Saving’s Angel also allows you to organize your list online, telling you which coupons to use and where to find them, so that you can print it out and have it on hand while shopping. Here is an example: http://savingsangel.com/es/lookwhatisaved.php?WishlistID=222933

Now what kind of savings are we talking about here? One day I came home from work and I thought Christmas came early and that all the gifts were items of food. Amber had spread out on the counter (as seen in the first picture at the top of this post) 2 big bottle of Sunny Delight, 3 bags of spinach, 4 bags of salad, 2 boxed brownie mixes, 2 boxes of Rozoni Pasta, 4 packages of Lance Snack Crackers, 24 yogurts, 4 boxes of Fiber One bars, 4 Jiffy corn muffin mixes, 3 boxes of microwave popcorn, 1 bag of sunflower nuts, 1 bag of sliced almonds, 2 jars of pasta sauce, 2 jars of peanut butter, 4 tubs of pillsbury biscuits, 4 boxes of gushers, and 2 bottles of ranch dressing. For all of this, Am paid a total of $10.00.

Some things to note and consider before delving in to Saving’s Angel:

  • It can take up to two hours a week of weeding through coupons and cutting them to get the Saving’s Angel price for all the items you need.
  • The first couple of weeks can be difficult as it takes a few shopping ventures to get use to how Saving’s Angel works. The Saving’s Angel website offers many free and helpful tutorials, as well as customer support.
  • Saving’s Angel is about stocking up on food and items you will need down the road. So, if you regularly cook, this is great for you, so that you’ll have things on hand.
  • You don’t merely find good deals on food items, but also on things such as shampoo and body wash.
  • Saving’s Angel tells you where to find coupons for both sale and non-sale items.
  • You will need to buy at least two papers each Sunday (as the coupons come in the Sunday paper).
  • Several items you will get for free.
  • Saving’s Angel does cost $20.00 a month, but you definitely end up saving way more.
  • Saving’s Angel cannot be used at every grocery store. So, please check their website and see if it can be used where you live (Saving’s Angel can be used at Publix, Meijer, Walgreens, and CVS).
  • Often times, the store will end up giving you money in return through register rewards which means they paid you to shop there!
  • It may help to buy some sort of filer to file the magazines which have the coupons.
