BaZing Saver Stories

Everyone loves saving money - especially when you're saving on things that you would buy anyways! Read on to discover some BaZing! success stories!

"My daughter called me from the Altoona Outlet Mall in a panic because she had locked herself out of her car and had to get back to West Des Moines to go to work. The keys to her apartment were also on her key chain so she couldn't have a friend go to her apartment and get her spare set of keys. Her roommate was also gone for the weekend, so she couldn't get into her car or her apartment. I called BaZing for roadside assistance and they were there within 45 minutes...we thought that was speedy for Des Moines. There was no cost to us and the service from BaZing was amazing! They called and her how many minutes out they were and they kept communicating with her to find her exact location. It was so nice to be able to help her even though I was in Ida Grove."

"We've used BaZing for free drinks at Bamboo village in Onawa twice. My husband has used it for free coffee with gas in Dunlap about 10 times already. He also uses it at various Burger Kings, Subways and Taco Johns etc. in the Sioux City/Onawa and Omaha/Blair areas. Since he travels a ton for work, we are obviously getting our $6 worth per month."

"While my husband and I were shopping at Westroads in Omaha, we could smell the sweet aroma of fresh baked pretzels. The smell triggered me to open BaZing and look for super savings around us! I found a coupon for Auntie Anne’s pretzels, but I was unsure if the address was correct.

It turned out it was not the correct address, but the clerk helping us agreed to honor it. It was buy one signature pretzel get one free, so not only did my husband and I each get the pretzel we wanted, we saved our pocket book $3.39!

"I received a free dessert at Taco John’s in Storm Lake – I chose the donut bites. They were delicious and the monetary value of the savings was $1.69 – but to me (and my sweet tooth) it was worth so much more!!"

"I go to Taco Johns a lot and usually spend around $20 every time whether it is with my mother in law or with mysister. Both times I’ve gone lately I have used my app and only paid $8dollars because with the Taco John's coupon its buy one get one free. I love that I'm saving a bunch of money and getting a free meal!

I knew that my Sam's Club membership needed to be renewed and had noticed that there was a deal for a $10.00 gift card with renewal. We stopped in Ames on our way home from shopping in Des Moines and used the coupon. My husband and I have used the Pizza Ranch deal.

"When on vacation, as we pulled into a community, I would check Bazing for specials and lodging opportunities. One special worth noting was EAA Air Venture museum in Oshkosh. Buy one admission get one free. Savings was $12.50. We would have gone to museum even without the savings.

One of our businesses, signed up with a BaZing special, even though their business is word of mouth. When one of the owners got their AAA bill, and compared the cost, they came in to sign up with BaZing just for the Roadside Assistance. I have personally been to the business to use the offered special. When I pulled out my phone recently to pull up the mobile coupon, the spouse remembered there was a Bazing deal, just from seeing the phone and asked how much of discount I was to get."

"I dropped my phone and the screen shattered. I still had my insurance through Verizon, so I filed the claim with them and had a $149 deductible to replace my phone. I then filed the claim with BaZing for the deductible amount and received my $99 check last week. It's always such a sinking feeling when something happens to your phone, but the $99 check made me feel a lot better, since it only ended up costing me $50 to replace it instead of $149. Not that I want anything to happen to my phone, but it will be nice to be able to have a firsthand experience to share with our customers and I'll be able to walk them through the claims process."

I was going to take a family vacation to Colorado to the kids’ grandparents house.
I then got online and checked if BaZing had the same hotel and they did for around 100 with the no cancelation price. With that price I booked and will next time look on Bazing before I book a hotel thru any other cite.

"I was the first to use BaZing at the Rec Center when I renewed my membership. While using it the receptionist at the desk asked me what that app was. I told her all about the app and the checking account it comes with upon which she replied "I am going to have to see about getting that type of checking account." I also was first to use it at our local winery. I went out for their Bluegrass and Gumbo evening the weekend of the 4th and purchase some gift items where I got 5.00 off."

My mom went to go get her prescriptions filled a few weeks ago. She was very upset and said she had just paid $98. She gets them filled 3 times a year. She said she might have to not fill one of the more expensive ones, and be in a lot of pain. I told her about BaZing. We share an account. She didn’t understand it so I went up to Thrifty for her and told them to add it to her account. They said any reimbursements would get mailed to her and the health savings code would be saved in her account for future use. She came into the bank all excited and had a $72 check in hand. She only paid $26 dollars for her prescriptions which will save her $216 for that prescription alone. She came in to see me again last week to tell me she saved another $25 on her other prescription. She lives on a fixed income and this has helped her tremendously!
