If you’re like me you will do almost anything to save a little money or even make a little money here and there. Because of that, I’ve put together a list of some of the most popular apps below that I hope you’ll start to use – I mean, we all can use some extra money can’t we?
1. Ibotta – This app is available on iOS and Android phones and shows deals at retailers from grocery to drugstores to travel. Using this app you just check off the offers you want to redeem and once you do the shopping you’ll earn cash back.
Whenever I go to the store, I’ll sit in the parking lot and go through all of the Ibotta offers and check whatever I know I’m going to buy. Sometimes if I see something I like I’ll go ahead and check it just in case I do decide to buy it while I’m in there.
While it can be time consuming, it is easy to use and you really can make some money using it. Sometimes they’ll offer something like $1 back on a gallon of milk (any brand), or ground beef (any brand). And one of the best things is they offer some super bonus cash that you can collect over time.
2. SavingStar – This app is available on iOS and Android phones and allows you to pick out deals from their site. For most stores you need to have your loyalty cards linked to SavingStar but you can also take a photo of your receipt and upload it.
You check the coupons you want to use that are attached to your cards and when you’ve saved $5 on your purchases you will earn some cash. They have also added a feature that allows you to get money toward your goal by watching a short video on the site.
Some of the offers they have are you get $3 back after you spend $12, but if you watch the video on the site, you can get an automatic $2 toward that offer. So, you’ll only need to spend $10 on products you were going to get anyway – you’re actually only spending $7 when all is said and done including the $3 back. Continue reading
