Cellfire: Electronic Coupons Equal More Savings

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 7, 2009 · 17 comments

cellfire-couponsPerhaps you've already noticed the new addition to my sidebar, but in case you haven't, let me just point out that you can now load Cellfire coupons directly to your store loyalty card right from Deal Seeking Mom!

So what exactly is Cellfire?

Cellfire offers ecoupons that can be downloaded directly to your store loyalty card. The ecoupons are deducted automatically from your grocery total at checkout when you buy a qualifying item and swipe your loyalty card. This will be of particular interest to my readers that shop at Kroger, as they are one of the participating stores in this program. Hopefully they will be rolling it out to many more stores in the future!

What other stores utilize the Cellfire program?

All Kroger family stores accept Cellfire, including Baker's, City Market, Dillon's, Fry's, Gerbes, Hilander, JayC, King Soopers, Owen's, Pay Less, QFC, Scott's, and Smith's.

How do I use Cellfire?

Using Cellfire is easy! Just register your store loyalty card on the Cellfire site. You don't need to have a cell phone to participate in the program. Simply use your home phone number if this is the case. Then you simply save the coupons that interest you to your card. I generally just go ahead and save them all unless I absolutely know I will not use a particular coupon.

See my Cellfire FAQs page for answer to other frequently asked questions.

You can always find a list of the most current Cellfire coupons here on Deal Seeking Mom. Load yours now so you're prepared when it's time to go shopping!

Tara, Do you have a system for keeping track of your electronic coupons? My Lowes Food has a similar program. I saw the max coupons with Cellfire is 50. How do you keep track and then match them up with sales? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks, Richelle

Carolina Clipper, I wish I could say that I have a fabulous system for tracking them, but unfortunately the programs are still hard to keep track of at this point. It's one of the reasons I blog about them and post the lists, because I know I can always come back and search my site to see if there's anything available to match up. Hopefully as these programs become more popular, there will be a way to track them more easily.

Tara,
Are these considered store or manufacturer coupons. Basically, can I use a coupon on top of this discount?

Summer, they are considered manufacturer coupons. Technically you're not supposed to use another manufacturer coupon on top of the discount. Unfortunately, sometimes it's unavoidable because currently there's no way to indicate which coupon to use if you also have a paper coupon. Also you can't remove coupons from your card once you load them.

Tara: this is so cool! I just signed up for them and saved a bunch of coupons to my card. Cool! Thanks.

I think the U-promise "coupons" can be used in conjunction with cellfire and shortcuts. Is that correct?

Can you load these to a Meijer store card?

Not currently, Christina, but they're adding new stores all the time.

Tara,
If I have multiple items, will the ecoupon be counted multiple times? For example, if I buy 3 boxes of Kellogg's cereal and I have an ecoupon for $.50 off 1 box, will the ecoupon register 3 times? AND if I am a loyal member at my market, will the coupon get double as they do with a paper coupon.

Sorry but I am a newbie!

I think they have added some stores since you posted this. I saw that ShopRite is now part of the program.

I just tried to register with my home phone and it wouldn't let me. I think it's fishy that they demand and VERIFY a cell phone number?!?

If you register your cellphone number, does that mean you're going to be getting texts sent to your cellphone? I do not have unlimited cell phone, so I don't want that to be the case. I also tried my home phone number, and it would not accept it.

No, I've never received a text from them. Home phone numbers *used* to work, but maybe they're not anymore. I'll have to do some investigating and update my post. Thanks!

Well, this is a great and promising deal. It will serve well loyal customers. But I hope that there will be no hacking done to access our accounts.
