There are a ton of great coupons and even more ways to find and track them. Using this website you can find the best and newest coupons along with some information on the websites and apps I like to use.
Checkout 51 App
The first app that I’ll mention, because I just got a new notification for deals, is Checkout 51. It’s a Canadian based company that developed this grocery app. I’m here in Massachusetts and have had success with it so far. Depending on what groceries you need it’s a great app to have because if you’re buying anything that’s on the app anyway, why not make the extra money.
Some information about what the app is directly from the mouth of Checkout 51:
“Checkout 51 helps you save money on the brands you love.
Every Thursday morning, Checkout 51 updates with a new list of offers. All you have to do is pick the ones you like, purchase them at any store, and upload a photo of your receipt through our mobile app or website. When your account reaches $20, we send you a check.
Checkout 51 is based in Toronto, Canada. The company was founded by three entrepreneurs with extensive experience building successful technology, media, and advertising businesses.”

The SavingStar App is another great addition to your smartphone grocery apps. It’s simple to use and all you have to do is link your loyalty reward cards from the grocery stores you use to the app and the savings will automatically be applied when you shop and use your loyalty card. If you do most of your shopping at Market Basket this will not work since they don’t have a loyalty reward card. It will work at Shaw’s even though they technically don’t use a loyalty card in store anymore. If you still have an old Shaw’s card you can still use that to link to SavingStar, if not you can request a new one from customer service.
For people that don’t like to clip or print coupons this is a great solution because you just add the offers you want and don’t have to fiddle with organizing coupons and handing them over at the checkout line. It’s free to join, so just like Checkout 51, if you’re planning to buy any of the groceries that are on the app anyway, why not save some extra money. They also do Freebie Friday’s which is an offer for a free item each week. Check out my SavingStar blog posts for the most recent freebie friday deal.
Here is a brief description from SavingStar on how the app works:
Save on your groceries
Click on the eCoupons you like and link them to your grocery and drug store loyalty cards.

Your total does not change at checkout. Your grocery savings are added to your SavingStar account within 2-22 days.
