Perks of Being a Saver

Life is short, and we all want to enjoy it as much as possible. We started SaveOn to help you save money so you can have more and do more with your friends and family. Even though you don’t have to be a member to take advantage of our huge savings, there are a lot of perks to being a member — or as we like to call it, a Saver. Plus, being a Saver is completely free.

Here are the perks of being a saver.

Never Miss a Deal

Savers never miss a deal because they get offers right in their mailboxes — actually, you won’t just hear about the best coups, you’ll be one of the first to hear about them. We hate getting spam just as much as you, so we never send emails unless we know you’ll love what’s in them.

Contests and Giveaways

Who doesn’t love free stuff? We do fun giveaways of gift cards, trips, gas, food, money and other cool items each month, but you have to be a Saver to enter our contests. We hope you’ll become a member so you can win.

Easier Way to Save

We know some Savers love clipping coupons — it’s therapeutic and fun for them. For everyone else, we make it easy to save coups for later, so you don’t have to clip, organize and remember to take them with you. When you sign up to be a Saver, you get the option to save coupons via your phone or computer. You can easily pull the coupons up later when you need them.

Deals Just for You

When you become a saver, you can mark your preferences of what types of coupons and savings you’re looking for. Our team uses this information to show you deals for the things and places you love and want, so you can save time and money.

Tips for Saving More

We make saving easier for you, and one of the ways we do that is by teaching you how to save like a pro. We send Savers the latest and greatest couponing advice and tips, so you can do more and save more.

How to become a Saver:

  • Head to saveon.com.
  • Click the “Sign In” button in the top-right corner of the webpage.
  • Click the “Sign Up” button in the pop-up window.
  • Fill out the form and hit submit.

Easy, right? We’re so excited to have you as part of our family, and we can’t wait to see how you Live Life for Less.

Autism Acceptance Month: Celebrating Our Differences

We’re bombarded throughout life with messages both implicit and explicit telling us what it is to be ordinary and what is required of us to fit in with the crowd. We’re told what it means to think ordinary, look ordinary, dress ordinary and act ordinary.

The problem about ordinary is that it’s just so … ordinary.

Ordinary is pedestrian. It’s mundane and routine. In a word, ordinary is boring. It’s boring because it lacks excitement, distinctiveness and the individualism that makes something special enough to stand out to be noticed and appreciated. The truth is, it’s those sometimes subtle and sometimes overt differences between us that make us unique and interesting. Ordinary will always fall short because it’s not extraordinary.

April is Autism Acceptance Month, and the Autism Society of America is commemorating the designation with its Celebrate Differences campaign. The campaign is designed to raise awareness about the signs, symptoms and realities of autism, but it is also focused on providing information and resources on how to become more accepting and inclusive of the autism community in everyday life.

Autism refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to a 2020 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, roughly 1 in 54 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder, and it is four times more common to be diagnosed in boys than girls. 

Society’s attitudes toward those on the autism spectrum has drastically shifted in recent decades as awareness has increased about the disorder and new therapies have been created to treat the diagnosis, such as the Autism Recovery Through Synergy (ARTS) program implemented by Dr. Tami Peterson, founder and CEO of the Oxford Recovery Center in Brighton, Michigan. The ARTS program teaches autistic children the behavioral skills that will help them become more successful in their homes, school and communities.

Raised awareness has created a bridge of understanding and the ability to see beyond the dry and clinical stigma of diagnosis to the flesh-and-bone, feeling-and-thinking people behind it — and, more importantly, an understanding of how the members of the autism community are able to play a valued role in the fabric of our society.

That bridge of understanding connects awareness with acceptance. Yet while attitudes have shifted, there are still more steps to take on the journey. It’s part of the reason why more autism advocacy groups are changing April’s designation from Autism Awareness Month to Autism Acceptance Month.

“While we will always work to spread awareness, words matter as we strive for autistic individuals to live fully in all areas of life,” Christopher Banks, president and CEO of the Autism Society of America, said in a news release. “As many individuals and families affected by autism know, acceptance is often one of the biggest barriers to finding and developing a strong support system.”

At SaveOn, much of our focus is turning the ordinary into the extraordinary for our customers. However, we encourage you to take time this month to recognize the extraordinary all around us every day and help accept and celebrate and our differences by taking part in Autism Acceptance Month. To find more about how you can help, visit the websites of Autism Society of America or Autism Speaks.

8 Rom-Com-Worthy Date Ideas

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is shutterstock_644250103-scaled.jpg

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve been binging our favorite rom coms. “Never Been Kissed.” “Definitely, Maybe.” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” We’ve seen them all — and, let’s be honest, sobbed when the main characters finally get together. One thing we’ve always loved about rom-coms is the dates they go on. That’s why this year we decided to put together a list of rom-com-worthy date ideas that you can easily do. Because we can’t help ourselves, we also threw in ways to save on your dates.

Take a Class Together/Do an Activity Together

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is shutterstock_1104423686-1024x768.jpg

It’s been a long time since most of us have been able to spend a night out doing something fun. The break makes doing what used to feel mundane like safely going to the movies, bowling or taking a class feel more exciting. It’s the perfect opportunity to spark romance and have fun together.

Plan a Romantic Night In

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is shutterstock_1287012067-1-1024x683.jpg

As great as it can be to go out, sometimes the most romantic moments are the nights in. Lower the lights, put on slow jams and enjoy time together. Cooking together is a really cute idea for a date night in. You can cook side-by-side making dinner together, or you could have a competition to see who makes the best dinner for the other.

Life’s stressful. Unwinding with a couple’s massage or a spa day is the perfect way to get romance going. If you don’t want to spend the money on a spa day, you can always do one at home. It’s just as romantic, if not more, to pamper your partner with a massage, facial, manicure and/or pedicure.

Whether you get dinner from an expensive, fancy restaurant or your favorite burger joint, dinner dates are classic in rom-coms.

Everyone knows the way to a woman’s heart is through diamonds, food or shopping. Since we already covered food, we’re on to shopping. Although expensive gifts are great, you don’t have to spend a lot to have fun shopping. We highly recommend going to a local resale store, setting a small budget for each person and picking out outfits for each other. It’s fun and you will share a lot of laughs and memories.

What’s better than enjoying your favorite brew with your favorite person? Trying new beer or wine flavors. We love the idea of going to a local bar and doing a wine or beer tasting. You can create a lot of good memories over drinks, and it’s even more fun when you get out of your comfort zone and try new flavors. Who knows, you might even find a new favorite.

Another classic rom-com date is the romantic getaway. Travel isn’t possible for everyone right now, but you can still have a getaway in your own backyard. Staying at a local hotel and playing tourist in your town can be a really cool way to spend Valentine’s Day.

Go to a Record Store

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is pexels-lopsan-2191013-scaled.jpg

Music is important to people. Someone sharing a song or album that has strong meaning in their lives is a big deal. Going to a record store together is not just a fun change-up to your normal date-night routine, it’s also a way to be vulnerable with each other and share the stories behind your favorite songs.

Creating a rom-com-worthy date night isn’t as hard as you think. All you need is a little creativity and a lot of love. You can save on Valentine’s dates, gifts and more at SaveOn.com.

Music is important to people. Someone sharing a song or album that has strong meaning in their lives is a big deal. Going to a record store together is not just a fun change-up to your normal date-night routine, it’s also a way to be vulnerable with each other and share the stories behind your favorite songs.
