Buy $5 worth, for instance, and you’ll receive a $1 credit. Match that with a good sale and you’ll have a seriously good deal.

If you’re not familiar with SavingStar, I highly recommend signing up at SavingStar.com, which allows you to save money at up to 12 different stores in the Triangle. It takes only a few minutes to register your store loyalty card numbers. Once you’ve done that, it only takes a few seconds each week to select the offers you wish to use.

At the store register, SavingStar coupons are NOT automatically deducted from your grocery order. Instead, the savings accrue in your SavingStar account. Once you've saved at least $5, you select how you want to be paid.
