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.
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?!
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.
App is always crashing, what a pain to submit a receipt. I had to rescan my items 8x, the app kept deleting my items. Wouldn't accept my receipt either, was perfectly clear & had the whole receipt in pic. They don't have as many items as similar sites I'm currently using. Other sites have more options scanning the receipt, able to scan the QR or bar code. I started Saving Star & made only $2.75 in 3wks. I made $57.25 on Ibotta in 2wks & have $30 pending for next wk.
When it works it's OK. Very difficult to submit and get credit for items purchased from stores without loyalty cards. Thinking about finding something different soon.
