Check it out! Winco now has digital coupons! I (Nina) made a stop into my local Winco (Federal Way, WA) to check it out and give it a test run. I have all the details in today’s post, and I think its possibly a game changer for all you Winco shoppers!
Step One. Create an Online Login.
First you will want to create an online login so you can browse/load coupons. You will do this by visiting WinCo’s website. One of the things I really liked about this was you do not have an extra store card to carry around because they do not offer store cards. This means, all you will use is your phone number at checkout.
Step Two. Load Coupons.
After you have created your login, you will have be able to load coupons that will be attached to your phone number. I loaded mine on my computer at home, then at the store I pulled up my phone to access what coupons I had loaded. Here are a few examples of how the digital coupons will look:
Nina’s Store Trip
As I walked into Winco I had my coupons up on my phone to see what I loaded. At the door, I immediately spotted La Victoria Salsa for $0.98 a jar, I also noticed I loaded a coupon for the same La Victoria salsa for $1/1! I decided to just try just this one digital coupon item in my transaction since it’s all new. Plus, what better way then to test an item that would end up free?I get up to checkout, I also had a few extra items as I needed to grab lunch stuff for the kiddos for the week. At the checkout all my items are scanned I am looking at the screen and I didn’t see a place to put my phone number. I was a bit confused so asked where I put my phone number. The cashier looked as confused as I was I pointed to the coupon sign on the door she proceeded to tell me she wasn’t sure but was super nice about it and called over a manager that was close by, the gentleman says its really new and no one has tried it yet. However, he knew exactly how it worked and was happy to show me, he also told me if an item is less then the coupon it will just make it free.
I was feeling a little skeptical, I then punched in my phone number, she hit total and bam it took of $0.98 making my salsa free! I for a second wanted to jump around the store with excitement because it was extremely easy and it went so smoothly!
This is where you will enter your phone number, you will want to push that Winco Digital Coupons logo, then the next screen will pop up.
As it shows here on my receipt you can see how it adjusted down the digital coupon to the price of the Salsa, then making it free.
This seems like it will be a good thing for Winco shoppers, I noticed they currently have about 130 available coupons that can be loaded ranging from Diapers to Salsa. I was pleasantly surprised with how smoothly it went since it is new and there usually tend to be some hiccups with anything new.
