Wish I new about this sooner
The SavingStar app is a great way to save money on some of the things that I purchase. It does not have rebates for all of my purchases but it enables me to try different products that I would not consider otherwise. I did have a problem getting the hang of it at first. But, once I did the research and email SavingStar for help, it is a piece of cake! It did take several days to resolve the problems I had, by the way I created the problems by not reading the instructions properly, they were more than helpful in fixing it for me. I shop at Publix and CVS a bit and do not have to do any kind of submitting. It is done automatically! All I do is cash out when I reach the minimum or let the dollars keep building! And I can still use it for most any other store I want by submitting the receipt. SavingStar is a wonderful tool to help me save money!
I have used other rebate apps with no problems but I have had issues with uploading receipts using this app. It is hard to see where the receipt 'pieces' end with long receipts because of the app's words and jagged edges in the way. My first two receipts were rejected because 'information was missing' (not). Info was there but all the edges were not lined up perfectly. Will likely delete because so far it isn't worth my time. Additionally, it takes much too long to be paid.
Many of the coupons (rebates) are listed as "One or many," which is incorrect. For those items, they require that one spend anywhere from $12 - $30 worth of a product to get rebates. Thus, MANY items must be purchased. The items rarely change as well.
One of the biggest disadvantages is that one can only buy items at a very few stores. For example, one major grocery chain in my region is not one I can get rebates for. There is a weekly "healthy option" rebate where they rebate 20% of the cost of fruit or vegetables.. So, spend $1 on bananas, for example, and get .20 rebate.
Great Money Saver but Always Crashes
This app saves me money which I love, I have used Savingstar for as long as I can remember but the submit receipt section of the app needs some SERIOUS work. It regularly crashes on me mid-entry while I am taking the photos of my receipt. Sometimes even multiple times where I give up on entering a receipt or postpone it for another try later. This is such an annoyance and time waster! It's annoying enough to have to scan everything that you've purchased and take pictures but when it crashes and you are doing it multiple times hoping for success, it's barely worth doing. Please, please fix the receipt entry crashes! It only seems to happen on my iPhone, not Ipad, and especially for longer receipts. Because I save everything I can for my family I still, painfully use the app but I miss the old days where you just used your shopper card for the savings!
