Happy Halloween!!! Don’t forget to pick up your FREE Snickers Bar (up to $1.50)!!!
I know that some of y’all thought I was being overly dramatic about requesting your funds from the rebates each month because you never know when a company is going to cease to exist but yesterday the shoe dropped and Savingstar announced it’s own demise.
What’s so interesting to me about this mess is that Quotient Technology (the owners of coupons.com) Acquired Savingstar, 24 months, ago, to cannibalize the company just to kill off. You are thinking to yourself “what did Savingstar have that coupons.com wanted?” Savingstar had a customer base, as well as, contracts clients with big names, i.e., P&G, Unilever, etc.
I suspect that Checkout 51 will be the next to fall as the company was recently acquired by a Private Equity Firm.
On Sunday, we will get Smart Source, Retail Me Not and Unilever coupon inserts inside the newspapers. Always, always, always check the inside of the newspapers to ensure that they have the inserts because it is absolutely frustrating when you take the time to buy the newspapers specifically for the coupon inserts and they are nowhere to be found when you get home.
If you didn’t have a chance to stop by CVS, this week, go to your CVS account and print or send to card your CVS coupons.
It’s Saturday and Halloween…enjoy your day!
