Updated:PITTSBURGH,None - Clipping coupons can save a lot of money, but it can also be time consuming. Channel 11's Robin Taylor has found out about a new way to use coupons, without the hassle of cutting them out of a newspaper or searching for them online.
Several local stores are offering e-coupons, which can be simply downloaded onto your reward cards.
Pittsburgh frugal mom Dana Vento said stores like Shop N' Save and Giant Eagle offer the coupons on their websites.
"You pick the coupons you want, register the card, and when you scan your card it goes right to your bill," Vento said.
Taylor found coupons at Shop N' Save for things like 55 cents off cereal, 60 cents off Toaster Strudel and 55 cents off a loaf of bread.
At Giant Eagle, coupons for $1 off of Suddenly Salad, 35 cents off of Bob Evans sausage and $1.50 off diapers were offered.
Vento said the programs are easy to use. All you have to do is pick the coupons you want, send them to your card, then swipe and save. She said the best way to save at the grocery store is having a plan of action before entering.
"You want to preplan and preplanning is your best friend. It will save you money in the long run," Vento said.
