CUB® FOODS DEBUTS DIGITAL COUPONING PROGRAM
Online, Mobile Deals to Deliver Big Savings to In-Store Shoppers

STILLWATER, Minn., May 1, 2014 — Cub® Foods, a trusted hometown resource for fresh, quality foods, is offering customers an innovative, tech-savvy way to save money with the launch of its new digital e-couponing program.
Encouraging customers to “stop clipping and start clicking,” the program allows MY CUB REWARDS™ members to load valuable digital coupons available on Cub.com or the Cub Foods mobile app directly to their loyalty card to take advantage of savings on a wide variety of products throughout the store, including fresh produce, meats and seafood, and much more.


I recently got my own 'My Cub Rewards' Card.

Every time I was in the store...I kept thinking, well, I'm in a hurry, I'll get one next time.

Or...Is it even worth it? I'll just check out without one and go...

Finally I just did it. It was quick and painless, and took all of about 45 seconds to sign up. If you, like me, are a card carrying member of fifty dozen places and have a purse full of stuff like this, CUB® FOODS can look you up by phone number at the checkout - which I love!


Shortly after I signed up for the MY CUB REWARDScard,  before I even had a chance to investigate the mobile app ~ I received this email.


Who can't use $5 off their grocery bill?
Yes, you have to spend $55 to get the $5 off, but somehow, that happens to me every. time. I. go.
"I'm running in for bread!" I say...
And then I emerge with the a case of water, a box of cereal, a handful of frozen pizzas to quickly cook before our youth ball games, yogurt cups, a jar of peanut butter, a bag of oranges, and hopefully, if I remembered, the BREAD!

You can log in from the computer and add coupons from the weekly ad right to your card ~


Or you can get the app for your mobile phone, which was quick & easy to download.



Once members have loaded the digital coupons to their cards, they can use the card at the register. 

The coupons they loaded will automatically apply to their purchase with one swipe of the card, saving time for customers and cashiers who traditionally scan physical paper coupons one by one. Savings will be printed on the customer’s receipt.

The Cub Foods mobile app and digital coupon features are also compatible with iPhone, including in Passbook, and Android devices.  It is available for free download in the iTunes App Store and Android Market.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to enhance the Cub Foods shopping experience with this new digital couponing program,” said Mike Stigers, president of Cub Foods. “The load-to-card system will provide our valued customers with a convenient new way to save on fresh, quality food, whether they’re planning their grocery list at home or using our mobile app on the go.”

To load digital coupons to their MY CUB REWARDS card, customers may visit Cub.com and log in to their account. If they do not have an active account, shoppers may register for the reward program on the website or in person at any Cub location.  

Once logged in, users may access dozens of discounted items through the site’s Coupons or Weekly Ad Specials sections. By simply selecting a sale item and clicking the “Save to My Card” button, e-coupons will be instantly linked to their card for convenient in-store savings. Members can even create custom shopping lists featuring discounted items that sync with the card.
Cub fans away from their home computer or laptop can still load discounts to their rewards card with the Cub Foods mobile app through its eCoupons or Weekly Ad function. 

While the new program gives customers an innovative new way to coupon, traditional paper coupons will still be available in-store and delivered directly to consumers each week.

I use to coupon A LOT! But I have to admit, I haven't done it much. I will use his Cub card though.

I used to coupon a lot too but just don't have the time anymore. I downloaded Target's Cartwheel app last week and will download this one too. I have to say that digital coupons are much much more appealing to me than paper for many reasons - the biggest probably being that it doesn't involve a scissors.

I try to coupon as much as possible, but that hasn't been much recently. I do love that more stores are using smartphones for coupons though!

I use coupons to save money so we could use savings towards other needs.

I try to- I used to be better at it- but with trying to buy "better' food (aka more natural and more "fresh") there doesn't seem to be too many coupons out there for the "higher priced" fruits and veggies. But: I try to save $$ anyway I can :)
