Several of you have asked if Jewel-Osco will still be working with SavingStar. They have gotten rid of their loyalty card for their in-store purchases, but can we still use them? The answer is YES! Don’t throw those cards away just yet! SavingStar has released this statement about Jewel:
“We have some important information about your Jewel-Osco Preferred Card. As of June 27, 2013 Jewel-Osco will no longer require using the Jewel-Osco Preferred Card to reduce the price of products at checkout in its stores. The good news is that you can still continue to use your Jewel-Osco Preferred Card to redeem SavingStar eCoupons. Just scan your card when you buy the products and your SavingStar savings will post to your account within a few days.
We understand that not all store cashiers and service desk attendees will be aware of this change and may tell you that you do not need to scan your card. However, it is important to note that the cashier must scan your card when checking out in order to redeem SavingStar eCoupons.”
So the bottom line is that your cashier is going to look at you funny when you ask, but you’ll have to politely insist that they scan your card! It’s the only way to keep that SavingStar savings going!
