How to Use SavingStar Digital Coupons at Shaws & Hannaford


Happy Monday Morning! I received an email over the weekend regarding last Friday’s blog post and thought I would turn it into a series, Coupon Questions! Each Monday morning, I’ll address one of your couponing questions.

Dear Chrystie,

I was reading your first blog on the BDN, and it mentioned Shaws and then Savingstar — since Shaws isn’t using their savings card anymore, how can you hook into Savingstar?

Great question. For those of you who have been shopping at Shaws for a while, may have noticed that they have recently done away with their store loyalty card. This was great news to many shoppers, but confusing to those of us who used the Shaws card to save even more money with the SavingStar.

SavingStar is a digital coupon program which allows you to load coupons onto your store loyalty card. You redeem these coupons by purchasing the item and swiping your store loyalty card at checkout. Savings do not immediately come off at the register, but instead are deposited into a SavingStar account. Once your SavingStar account reaches at least $5.00, you can request a payout via Paypal.

If you are a Shaws shopper and no longer have your Shaws card, but would like to continue to use the SavingStar digital coupon program, here’s what you have to do. According to the website:

Please call the store’s customer support desk at 877-932-7948 to request a new Upromise card, which will also work on SavingStar. Once you receive this card in the mail, please be sure to add the new number to your SavingStar account before making any further purchases. You do not need to be a member of Upromise to use this card.

Now, for those of you interested in using the SavingStar program at Hannaford, you must request a Hannaford sticker. You can do so, by visiting and signing up for or logging into your account and clicking on “Order MyHannaford sticker”. Once you receive the sticker in the mail, you can use it at Hannaford to save with SavingStar coupons.
