Waltham, MA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Savvy shoppers can save more money online with the new Cashback Mall from SavingStar. The Cashback Mall is available at SavingStar.com and enables users to earn cash while shopping at hundreds of participating online stores including 5% cashback at Groupon, 1.5% at Travelocity, 10% at ProFlowers, and more. The Cashback Mall is a new addition to SavingStar’s popular money-saving service, which also offers exclusive paperless grocery coupons.
“With the launch of our Cashback Mall, SavingStar is making it easier than ever for families to save money on their online purchases,” said David Rochon, CEO of SavingStar. “With our digital grocery coupons and now our cashback shopping mall, SavingStar is ‘The smart and simple way to save.’ Especially with the Holiday season upon us, SavingStar will help families save hundreds of dollars.”
How It Works
After logging in or creating a free SavingStar account, users can search for their favorite online store within SavingStar’s Cashback Mall to save on clothes, travel, electronics, gifts, household items, jewelry, and many other products. Members receive money back after they click from the Cashback Mall to shop at their favorite website and make a purchase. Popular merchants include BestBuy.com, Macys.com, Staples.com, landsend.com, and many more. Members’ earnings are automatically credited to their SavingStar accounts and are payable to their bank or PayPal account, as an Amazon gift card, or as a donation to the charity American Forests to help plant trees.
Through SavingStar’s exclusive online coupon codes, members can save even more when purchasing products on participating merchants’ sites. For example, users can now save 15% on fall flowers at ProFlowers.com, in addition to earning 10% cashback in their SavingStar accounts.
SavingStar also offers a Cashback Browser Toolbar for use on Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome to help shoppers never miss a chance to save. When users install the toolbar, they are automatically notified in their internet browser of available cashback rewards when visiting participating merchants’ websites.
SavingStar launched in 2011 as the only national 100% paperless grocery eCoupon service, linking grocery deals to supermarket and drugstore loyalty cards at over 100 chains nationwide. Since then, over 4 million people have joined the free service. Earlier this year, SavingStar was named "Best Consumer Tech That Makes Life Easier" at the 2013 MITX Awards which recognizes the most innovative startups in the Boston area.
SavingStar was co-founded by David Rochon and Michael Libenson who developed the grocery rewards technology while serving as President and SVP, respectively, of college savings service Upromise.com. The company has raised $27 million in funding.
SavingStar is the smart and simple way to save on groceries and online shopping. Redeemable at over 24,000 supermarkets and drugstores, SavingStar's grocery eCoupons are linked to shoppers' store loyalty cards and provide a more convenient and eco-friendly way to save on groceries than paper coupons. SavingStar’s Cashback Mall enables shoppers to save at hundreds of popular online stores. SavingStar automatically adds the value of each offer redeemed into users' SavingStar accounts, enabling them to pick their payout from cash back to gift cards to charity donations. SavingStar also powers white-labeled grocery savings services, including Upromise, Fuel Rewards Network, and NutriSavings. SavingStar is backed by DCM, Flybridge Capital Partners, First Round Capital, IA Ventures, Edenred, American Express Ventures, and other investors. The company is based in Waltham, MA.
