I have been a part of Saving Star for some time. I recently downloaded the app and this has definitely increased my participation in the program. The app is VERY slow, but if you can get past that the savings can add up. It is especially convenient for those retailers with reward programs linked directly to Saving Star. Otherwise you have to scan UPC codes and submit pictures of receipts. I'll keep using the app, but want to see more grocers directly linked.
It worked great for the first month or so, I was even able to earn over $20 in rebates. Then all of a sudden, it quit giving me rebates. I would buy the product, scan my receipt and items as instructed and be rejected. Even after resubmitting the receipt with the pertinent information clearly visible, I continued to be rejected.
Not a large variety of product. The scanning tool and camera tool is a little harder to use when comparing to other apps. The rebates are good amounts though; if it's something you already buy. It's nice how you can link some store cards and forget about scanning. Although, I know I have made purchases, and I wasn't given credit. It's just okay. Update- wanted to come back to say costumer service deserves 5 stars!! Next update. I've noticed the healthy offers don't always show up for credit. I'm sure it was submitted because another item on my Martins bill was credited.
UPDATE - I updated the app, & it said 26 new offers. I only noticed 3 offers that were new since yesterday. WHERE ARE THE OTHER 23 NEW ITEMS?! Such a disappointment with choices. It feels like it never updates. How about some nice milk, coffee, crackers, cookies, bread, fruit, eggs, butter, OJ, etc but in BRAND NAMES?!
This app used to have more commonly used offers. Now I barely see anything I would buy and there are less offers than when I first started using the app. It now takes forever to accumulate any real savings. Disappointing.
2/6 I will no longer be using this app. Frequent problems. First it won't scan. Now every time I attempt to take a picture, it crashes. When using the website, it crashes when I attempt to upload pictures. Not worth the hassle. Too bad because I had gotten $100+ back in one year.
