What is the KidStart Saving Prompt?
The KidStart Savings Prompt is a free web app available to KidStart members. It works on all major internet browsers to prompt you that KidStart savings are available:
- when the retailer appears in Google search results
- when visiting the retailer site directly
You can then click the link in the prompt if you wish to collect KidStart Savings on purchases made at that retailer.
The KidStart Savings prompt also contains a “dashboard” that gives information on recent purchases, balance and quick links to KidStart.
Why should I use the KidStart Savings Prompt?
The Savings Prompt helps remind you if the retailer is part of KidStart so that you do not forget to collect KidStart Savings for your children. Members using the Savings Prompt save 4x as much as those who do not.
Nothing – it is free to install and use.
The Savings Prompt contains a list of retailers that have agreed with KidStart they would like to be part of it. (This list is updated automatically on a daily basis). The Prompt works by looking at what is written on the web page and if it sees one of the retailers’ websites on the page, it shows the prompt.
My anti-virus software flags it. Is it safe to use?
Yes! The Savings Prompt does not record, track or store any information at all about your browsing. It does not record or store any personal information. If your anti-virus flags it, please let us know as we will ask the company to white list it (as it is already on many of the most common antivirus tools)

It works with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari on PCs and Macs. It works with all recent versions (but not with very old versions of these browsers). It is available for Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10 and Mac OS X 10.6 onwards.
