Embracing Customer Loyalty Programs

I am passionate about saving a dollar wherever possible. My husband laughs at how excited I get from the idea of saving a dollar or two, but those dollars add up! Loyalty programs are one of the easiest ways to keep money in your pocket. Everything from free pizzas to gas for $0.45/gallon as rewards for items you were already buying. I can’t wait to tell you all about the loyalty programs I’ve found to be the most worthwhile!

Wal-Mart Savings Catcher: Above is our current redeemable amount, over $150!! Wal-Mart is no longer participating in Ad-Match. Instead, you enter (online) or scan (in app) your receipt and automatically receive the difference between what you paid and what was advertised at other stores. My parents and I share a savings catcher account, and we use the money to buy all our Christmas baking supplies. It’s like a year-long savings program!

Kroger Plus Card: Sign-up in store for a Plus Card, and then download the Kroger app to link it with an online account. The Kroger app allows you to load digital coupons straight to your Plus Card, view weekly ads and check your Fuel Points. On the subject of Fuel Points, we save up our points, watch for 2x Fuel Points promotions and buy our prescriptions at Kroger to make the most of our spending! Below is how much we paid to fill up both of our cars at $0.45/gallon! (This goes for any of Kroger’s sister companies too.)


Papa Rewards: Our guilty pleasure is ordering pizzas and we do it way more often than we should. Set up an account, order online or in app and earn points! It’s really that simple. We recently cashed in some points we’d been saving up for a free dinner!

Above are the loyalty programs we receive the biggest benefit from, but Starbucks, Panera, Chick-fil-a and Regal Cinemas all have excellent programs too. I hope you’ve found some ways to stretch your dollar!
