Besides paper coupons, there are coupon and savings apps you can download on your mobile phone.

One app is Ibotta. Here is a post I found with information about Ibotta. Stores in the Fargo/Moorhead area that are included are CVS, Family Dollar, Walgreens, Target and Walmart. At this time they are offering a $2 bonus for new users.

Once you have signed up for an account, to get the discounts you will need to do tasks such as take a poll, learn a fact, answer a trivia question or share on Facebook or Twitter. You need to select the discount before going shopping, you don’t need to purchase the item if you change your mind. After the purchase, you scan the UPC code with your phone and then scan your receipt. The amount of the reward is then deposited into your account.

If you shop at Target you can register for Target Mobile coupons on your mobile phone. To use the coupons, you have the cashier scan the coupon on your phone. Since these are store coupons, you should be able to also use manufacturer coupons for the same items if they are available.
