Win-It Wednesday: $100 Grocery Gift Card from Cellfire!

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 2, 2010 · 762 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at noon, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!


Many of you are probably already familiar with Cellfire, but for those of you that aren't, 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.

Participating stores include Baker's, Carrs, City Market, Dillons, Dominick's, Fry's, Genuardi's, Gerbes, Hilander, JayC, King Soopers, Kroger, Owen's, Pavilions, Pay Less, QFC, Ralphs, Randall's, Safeway, Scott's, Shop Rite, Smith's, Tom Thumb, Vons.

Every two weeks, Cellfire releases new coupon offers (which are added to the Coupon Database and posted here on the blog as well) that are available for download for two weeks. The coupons expire four weeks from the date they're released, so at any given time there are two sets of coupons on your card. You can download all of the available coupons to your card, and they will be deducted automatically when you make a qualifying purchase.

Current offers include:

  • $0.75/2 Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie
  • $0.50/1 Bisquick Original or Heart Smart Baking Mix
  • $0.50/1 Fiber One Chewy Bars or 90 Calorie Chewy Bars
  • $0.55/1 Lucky Charms Cereal

Cellfire is promising even more great offers this month, and they've got a special giveaway for Deal Seeking Mom readers as well...

I like the e-coupons since they save you even more when you shop, but I dislike the fact that it's hard to remember them and sometimes they don't come off when they should.

i signed with facebook to win, but face book is so confusing to me??????


6 Donna B. June 5, 2010 at 3:37 pm

I'm just starting to use ecoupons. I'd rather have printed ones, because it's easier for me to keep them organized and know exactly what I have coupons for!

I just did cellfire for the first time yesterday and the only thing I didn't like about it was that I could not see the coupons coming off my bill (like I do at the end with the paper ones). But, they are obviously a good deal...I just need to figure out how to make sure they happen! :)


11 Barb June 5, 2010 at 5:06 pm

The deducted amount should be on the receipt right next to the item with a notation like "cfire" or something. Shortcuts e-coupons used to use "SCuts" but I'm sorry but I can't remember the exact code for Cellfire but they are there and are usually very close to the item purchased. You may even overlook them as a store coupon discount but that's where they'll be. Hope this helps.

I like them because they save me money--- but dislike forgetting about them easily.


15 Jennifer B June 6, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Ecoupons are interesting, because they are easy...but hard to remember...but fun to see on your receipt when you don't (remember)!

I have struggled using the ecoupons. There have been times my coupons have not shown on my receipt. When I go to try and correct it, it keeps sending me a note saying they don't recognize my loyalty card yet my loyalty card is acceptable when I go to the register.


18 corie June 6, 2010 at 2:24 pm

I'm trying to get into the drugstore game! Would love a jump start with a gift card :)

21 lynne June 6, 2010 at 5:08 pm

I love e-coupons. Especially when more than one comes off and stacks to make something free!


22 Abby June 6, 2010 at 6:15 pm

The variety of ecoupons are great. I can't find such a gray selection anywhere else. Truly my favorite.

25 Christy Morris June 6, 2010 at 6:29 pm

I'm learning to save with coupons. Each new thing I learn about coupons and freebies is saving me and my family money and that goes towards becoming debt free. Thanks for the help.


26 pamela edwards June 6, 2010 at 6:53 pm

I like using e-coupons in addition to the store coupons and manufacturers coupons because I can actually get items for free.


27 Jennifer Seitzinger June 6, 2010 at 7:15 pm

I like having the coupon on my card instead of having to clip.

I love ecoupons. I use them all of the time paired with printed manufacturer coupons. I have gotten many free items this way.


31 Liz June 6, 2010 at 8:53 pm

I use e-coupons and like them, but I have had them not come off at check out before...


32 LJ June 6, 2010 at 9:37 pm

I like the idea of electronic coupons, they are definetly a great "green" idea...but they are not as vauluable as the real coupons (they do not double, and they expire every week) -there are major diasadvantages to them! I hope they work out the kinks so we can move over to these!


33 Jessica Holbrook June 6, 2010 at 9:45 pm

I love coupons because I can stack them and get much better deals on name brand products than I can just buying generic to begin with. I get free stuff all the time, too!

I love ecoupons. Much easier to use for me than the clip ones.


45 Mel June 7, 2010 at 12:05 pm

I love coupons and cellfire. The only downside to couponing is it can be time consuming, and you have to be organized. The money saved though, is well worth it!

50 Mari June 8, 2010 at 4:49 pm

I do use ecoupons. I like using them. The only issue I have is that not all stores will accept them!
