There have been numerous e-coupon services that have been popping up recently and I am going to start adding these e-coupons to the Giant Eagle matchup each week. This first post is going to discuss Cellfire, an e-coupon clipping service, and frequently asked questions about e-coupons. If there are any questions that you have about Cellfire or e-coupons that are not answered by this post, please leave a comment and I will try and answer your question as best I can.
1. What are e-coupons?
E-coupons are coupons that are loaded onto your store savings card. The savings from e-coupons are automatically deducted from your transaction amount when you buy the participating product.
2. Can I use e-coupons with manufacturer coupons?
No. Giant Eagle does not allow you to stack manufacturer coupons and ecoupons. Make sure that you keep track of which e-coupons you have loaded onto your card because if there is an e-coupon loaded onto your card for $0.40 off an item and a paper manufacturer’s coupon for $0.50 off an item, Giant Eagle will automatically use the $0.40 ecoupon. The $0.40 e-coupon will not double so you would be losing money if you loaded the $0.40 ecoupon onto your card.
3. How can I keep track of which e-coupons are on my store savings card?
Cellfire allows you to print a list of your clipped coupons.
4. Can I remove e-coupons once I have clipped them?
No. Cellfire does not allow you to remove the coupons once you have clipped them. I would only add coupons when I know that I will be buying the item and when I do not have any other coupons to use.
5. How many e-coupons are available to print?
As of this posting, there are 25 e-coupons to choose from on Cellfire. I’m not sure if this varies or if it is a set number.
6. How often are e-coupons updated?
E-coupons for Giant Eagle are updated every other Sunday.
7. Is Giant Eagle the only store participating in Cellfire?
8. How do I get started?
Click here to head to the Cellfire website and register your store card.
9. Does it cost anything?
No. Cellfire is completely free.
