What is Cellfire?

Cellfire is a website where you can link electronic coupons to your frequent shopper grocery cards or to your mobile phone. Cellfire offers two types of electronic coupons: Grocery and Non-grocery.

Grocery coupons are stored on your frequent shopper cards. Coupons are redeemed when the cashier scans your card at the grocery check out.

Non-grocery coupons are stored on your cell phone for later use. These coupons are redeemed by showing the mobile coupon on your cell phone to the cashier at checkout. From my experience, there are frequently coupons for restaurants, portrait studios, florists, video rental stores, and more in the non-grocery section of the site.

Cellfire is very easy to use and requires little time, unlike clipping paper coupons. You don’t have to print them either like you would with other internet coupons.

Getting Started

To get started, go to www.cellfire.com. On the homepage, there is a big red button that says "Get Cellfire Now." Click on the red button to begin the account sign up process.

Create a Cellfire Account

Very little information is required by Cellfire to create an account. Here’s what they ask for:

  1. Mobile phone #. This will serve as your account ID/username to log into the Cellfire website. Electronic coupons can be stored on your phone to use when you're out and about.
  2. Year of Birth. This will be used as the password for your account
  3. Zip Code. This will be used to find relevant deals and offers that are local to your area.
  4. Gender. Some offers are relevant to one gender more than the other
  5. Email address. Used to receive savings alerts from Cellfire periodically. They promise to respect your privacy and not share your information with other parties.
  6. Grocery Savings Card #s. The electronic coupons are linked to your specific frequent shopper card. Coupons are redeemed when the cashier scans your card at the grocery checkout.

After clicking on "Get Cellfire Now," this screen will come up.  Fill out the information and click "register" to complete the creation of your account.

Login to Your Account

Once you've created an account, login to view the available offers in your area. Click on the “deals” link on the orange bar at the top of the page. This will allow you to view all coupons currently being offered. In the image below, there are two grocery stores listed, each with four or five coupons available for selection. Sometimes there are as many as 30 grocery coupons available.

Non-grocery coupons appear at the bottom of the page, beneath the grocery offers.

When you log in and click on the "Deals" link, this is the page that comes up.  It shows all the available coupons in your area.

As shown in the image below, if you click on an item, a box will pop up that gives you the following information:

  • Name of the product
  • Amount of the digital coupon
  • How many of the item you must buy to receive the savings
  • Expiration date for the digital coupon

Save Offers

To save an offer to your grocery savings card, click on the yellow button that says "Save to Card" beneath the item you want to save. For non-grocery coupons, this button will say "Save to Phone."  A green check mark will appear on the picture of the item to let you know the coupon has been saved. As you save coupons, there is a green button that lights up on the top left of the page. Click on that green button to see a list of all the coupons you have saved.

A green check mark appears next to an item when the coupon has been saved to your card.

Print Your Shopping List

Beneath the green button, there is a link that says "Print Shopping List." Click on that to get a printer friendly version of all the coupons saved to your card for a particular store. I find this helpful because it would be otherwise impossible to remember what coupons were saved to which card. I pull the list out when I'm looking at the weekly grocery ads to see if any of the items I have electronic coupons for are on sale at the store. Combining the digital coupons with sale prices is a great way to save money on grocery prices.

After you've selected your offers, you can print your shopping list as a reminder of which coupons are linked to your card.

Maximize your Savings

From my experience, Cellfire electronic coupons offer the best savings when combined with traditional paper manufacturer coupons. For example, last week I bought a box of cereal that was on sale for $1.38. I had a Cellfire electronic coupon stored on my frequent shopper card for 50 cents off. I also used a paper coupon for 50 cents off the cereal. Combining the two coupons saved me 1.00, making the total for the cereal only 38 cents. The store I shop at allows the combination of a paper coupon and an electronic coupon. Make sure your store does not have a policy against this.

Saving 50 cents here and 40 cents there doesn't sound like incredible savings, but the savings can really add up over the course of a month or even a year. If you already use paper coupons, adding Cellfire to your coupon routine will be a breeze. It only takes a minute or two to login and save the offers to your card. For those who don't use coupons at all, this is a great way to start because it is so easy and doesn't require much time at all. Enjoy the savings!

I've not heard of this site. I'll check it out . . . I should say, I'll have the "missus" check it out. Nice job with the screenshots. We're regular coupon users. Vons in our area used to have double coupons but they stopped that in the past year.

Thanks Don. There's another site called Shortcuts.com that also has electronic coupons you can add to your shopper cards. You won't save a huge amount, but a little here and a little there adds up!
