Save to Card Coupons Complement ShopRite’s Existing Online Printable Coupon Gallery, So Shoppers Have the Flexibility to Save the Way They Want
Keasbey, N.J., and Mountain View, Calif. – July 15, 2010 – ShopRite is giving shoppers more ways to save on their grocery bill. ShopRite has launched a Coupons.com “Save to Card” coupon gallery on its website that lets shoppers add money-saving coupons directly to their ShopRite Price Plus Club card. The announcement was made today by Coupons.com and Wakefern Food Corp., the nation’s largest retailer-owned cooperative and the merchandising and distribution arm of ShopRite Supermarkets which has more than 220 stores in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware and Maryland.
Accessible 24/7, the Save to Card coupon gallery is immediately available at www.shoprite.com/coupons. After registering their ShopRite Price Plus Club card information, shoppers simply select the coupons they want and when their Price Plus Club card is entered or swiped at checkout, coupons are automatically deducted from the total—all without the need for clipping or scanning printed coupons.
Shoppers will find coupons for products across the store, aisle after aisle. The new Save to Card gallery complements ShopRite’s current collection of online printable coupons (also powered by Coupons.com), which it has offered since 2008, and gives shoppers the flexibility to save with coupons in their preferred way.
“ShopRite is dedicated to helping shoppers save money, and the new Save to Card coupon gallery is just another way we are doing just that,” said Joe Sheridan, Executive Vice President of Wakefern Food Corp. “Coupons.com has the most coupons available for brands found across our stores so shoppers can stretch their grocery budgets without compromising quality or convenience.”
“More and more consumers are looking to the Internet as a valuable resource for money-saving offers. In fact, hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings have already been printed from ShopRite’s gallery of online printable coupons,” said Steven Boal, CEO of Coupons.com Incorporated. “At the same time, a growing number of consumers are learning that savvy supermarkets are allowing coupons to be saved directly to their store loyalty card. It is an easy way to use coupons for consumers who would rather not print and organize coupons. With the addition of the new Save to Card gallery, ShopRite is giving its customers the option to use coupons the way they prefer—either printed or on their Price Plus card.”
