How does Allrecipes use my Location?

Allrecipes’ Dinner Spinner uses your location in two ways, both to help save you money on groceries.

The on-sale feature checks for grocery stores near you, and then matches what’s on sale with a recipe’s ingredients. You see what’s on sale, including store coupons, and we don’t send any information to the store about you.

If you don’t wish to see these sales, you can toggle the button below to turn off.

Dinner Spinner can also use your location with new in-store sale alerts.  When you enter a participating store, Allrecipes will use your location and sale ingredients to suggest a recipe.  Only select stores are participating.

For more information about how we use location data, and how you can opt-out, please view our Privacy Policy.
