Shopmium pulled the rug out from under us today.
Effective May 11th, 2016, Shopmium no longer allow the stacking with manufacturer’s coupons with their offers. This comes as no surprise, other savings apps (SavingStar, Checkout51 etc) and all Digital Coupons (Kroger stores etc) also disallow the practice of “stacking” other coupons with their offers. Not only is Shopmium disallowing stacking effective immediately, they are no longer accepting receipts from select retailers.
What retailers? Oh, just the big ones, you know:
Baker’s Supermarkets, CVS Pharmacy, Publix, Meijer, City Market, Copp’s, Dillons Food Stores, Dillons Marketplace, Fry’s Food & Drug, Foods Co., Food 4 Less, Fresh Market, Gerbes Super Markets, GreenWise, Jay C, Kroger Company, Kwik Shop, Loaf ‘N Jug, Mariano’s, Metro Market, Owen’s, Pay Less Super Markets, Pick ‘n Save, Publix Sabor, QFC, Roundy’s, Ruler Foods, Scott’s, Smith’s, Smith’s Marketplace, Smith’s Express, Tom Thumb Food Stores, Turkey Hill Minit Markets
They claim that the retailers mentioned and now excluded from their app don’t provide enough information on their receipts to allow their system to properly validate user purchases.
Shopmium merged with Quotient Technology, Inc back in November, 2015. Quotient Technology is the new name of Coupons.com Incorporated. Coincidence? Will this change the way you use the app, or the fact that you use it at all?
