WALMART now has Savings Catcher where all you have to do is enter the numbers off of the bottom of your receipt and in about 3 days you find out if anything you purchased was advertised for less somewhere else.  Then, you get a credit for the difference!  Only valuable to someone if they want an e-card to shop more at Walmart.  They still do price match, also, where you bring in the physical ad for an exact item that is advertised at a lower price.  Kind of a pain, but it works and then you can still use your coupons, if you have any, to lower the price even more.  

IBOTTA is an app for your phone.  Although the list of eligible rebates is kind of short, I have already earned $7.50 in rebates. You can then either open an account to deposit the cash, or pick from limited gift cards.   What is nice, is it has things like milk, eggs and bread which you never see coupons for.  You "unlock' rebates by doing a few little things like watching a 30 second video, scan the barcode of product and take a picture of the receipt.  It is all within the app.  Also rebates for certain movies, Best Buy, Quiznos.  Kind of an odd mix, but so far I like it.

SAFEWAY - don't forget to load up on your SW rewards card.  Athough their prices are generally higher, if you can match a sale and douple paper coupons, (you can't double loaded coupons) you can come out pretty good.  Beware that you don't get carried away stockpiling and run out of money for perishables.  Can also earn fuel points.

I actively use all of the above.  I don't stockpile, but do try to be smart.  I don't drive 10 miles across town to save $1.00.  :)  

Please post other ways you save, either for groceries or other items.

Is that how the Walmart e-card works?! I am going to have to look further into that because I shop at walmart all the time. It's one of the only supermarkets in my area.

Yea, the you should totally look into it then.  Right now I only have $1.13, so I have not transferred it yet into an e-card.
