southern savers new features

We rolled out a few new features to Southern Savers last night that I’m excited to share!  Thanks goes to all the folks that send feedback and ideas in email because these were really your ideas.

First, if you make a shopping list and forgot to login before you start working you’ll no longer lose your work.  If you weren’t logged in, you’ll be directed to the login page, after you do login your list will magically appear!

Why do you want to login?

  1. You can save your shopping lists and come back and work on them later.  You can also add to them throughout the week as other deals come up (see more on that below).
  2. When you create a login, you tell the system what stores you shop at and what newspaper you get.  Now your shopping list will only show insert coupons that were actually in your paper!  This has been out for a while, but for me is my favorite reason to login.  No more hunting coupons that you never had in the first place!!
  3. Telling what stores you shop in tailors the Item Search feature.  If you need to know what store has the best deal on Tide detergent the item search will only return the stores you have told it to (rather than sale info for all 32 stores covered on Southern Savers).

The other super fun addition…

You can now add individual deal posts to a shopping list!  As more little deals and new coupons pop up through the week you can quickly add those deals to your current shopping list (or make a new one) when you see the deal on Southern Savers.  I have wanted this for a long time and adding it last night made me so excited I couldn’t sleep (I probably have issues).  This part pairs in with the logging in part.  If you aren’t logged in you can’t save any lists so you wouldn’t be able to save these deals…

 Other Features To Not Miss

We have an app!  Take your shopping lists on the go, use the item search and even use it to help price match deals with online prices in stores like Target and Walmart!

Item Search is also a historical price book.  You can put in a date in the past on the item search and see all the past sales on an item over that period of time.  Now you can easily tell what a great price is for an item you regularly buy!

This is my savings so far this year…

Track your savings!  One perk of being logged in, is the ability to track your savings over time.  You will track by store, but also see monthly and yearly totals for all the money your spent/saved.  This also works from the app so you can track before you lose the receipt.

Daily Emails to not miss any deal.  Don’t be on the dark on awesome new Kraft or Starbucks coupons, get the daily email so you know all the new coupons and deals that are out!

Facebook.  Yeah it doesn’t sound like a feature, but I post the top deals there everyday along with helpful videos and other tips.  Make sure you have liked and have selected “Following” to seethings in your feed.

 

If there are other things you would love to see added, send me an email (jenny@southernsavers.com).  We aren’t always fast with new projects, but do definitely try!!

      In spite of the fact that I have created a login and have my newspaper selected in my profile, my list always shows coupons that were not included in my paper. I’m still spending time looking for coupons I that aren’t there. What am I doing wrong?

      • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

        What newspaper do you have selected? I will try to figure out what’s up!

          Chattanooga Times Free Press
          Thanks!

        Me too…Knoxville News-Sentinel and Kroger ad

        • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

          Hmm I just went and looked and the Knoxville paper is one of the most punctual regional volunteers we have right now! They have all the variations up to date. Not sure why it would show you insert coupons you didn’t have. The ad may have differences because of the regional differences though. We pull Kroger prices from the Atlanta region ad, so you will find the same items on sale, but the sale prices may differ a tad.

      Such a shame. Your site was my go-to shopping guide. But this is cumbersome and I do not like to be tracked.

      • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

        We really don’t track anything and actually delete the data after a few months because it’s kills our servers. The only reason for logging in is to save your list for you. Without logging in the system would have no clue who you were or what newspaper to show you coupons for. Feel free to create an account in a pretend name if that helps :)

      great info, will you be doing a monday talk on this?

      • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

        We can definitely spend a Q&A session going over features and ways to use the site better. Good idea!

    • Marrianne

      Thanks for all of your hard work!

      Can you make it where the lists you save in the app also appear on the website? As of right now, when I create a list in the app I can view it on my computer to print it out or add to it. Thanks so much.

      • Name

        Sorry….Can’t view it on my computer.

      • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

        I tested this again and am thinking that you must have a different account for the app as you do for the site on our computer. When I use the app the lists are there or when I make them on the site and then go to the app they are there… feel free to email me jenny@southernsavers.com and I can try help further!
