8 Easy Ways to Save $100’s Each Year Grocery Shopping
If you are like me you are always looking for ways to save money! I actually use all of these. Plus I let them accumulate and by the time November/December rolls around I have more than enough money to pay for Christmas. All of these are free to download, free to use, and they earn you money. If you have any questions or want to let us know of other programs leave a comment :)
Rebate Apps: All of these essentially work the same. The best thing about them is they all stack with each other. If the same item is on Ibotta and MobiSave you can submit for BOTH rebates!! Plus most of the time you can use manufacture coupons also. Just read each rebate before submitting.
Ibotta << Click here while on your phone to download the app. New users to Ibotta will get an extra $10 after you submit for your first rebate! Ibotta is my workhorse. If you only download one of these apps (don’t do that) pick this one. I find that it has the most options and after using all of these for over a year now I have earned the most on this one. After you download it and sign in you will have to select grocery, then your store, and then unlock the rebates you want to use. When you get home from shopping you will verify your purchase by scanning the barcode on your item and scanning your receipt. After that you are all done! Ibotta usually has the money in my account within a few minutes. You can cash out in gift cards or to your PayPal account as soon as you reach $25. You can also use Ibotta at restaurants and for online shopping. Be sure to check it out after you download.
Checkout 51 << Click here while on your phone to download the app. Similar to the others just select your items and submit your receipt. Checkout will send you a check when you are ready to cash out!
SavingStar << Click here while on your phone to download the app. Similar to the others just select your items and submit your receipt.
Scan Your Receipts: For both of this app all you have to do is take a picture of your receipt. It will work for almost anywhere you shop not just for groceries.
Receipt Hog << Click here while on your phone to download the app. All you have to do is take a picture of your receipt and submit! You will get coins or slots which you can exchange for Amazon gift cards or PayPal. This works on almost all of your receipts not just grocery ones.
Link your card and earn money while you shop: For both of these apps you will download using the link and it will ask you to link a credit or debit card. Link the card you use most often. You will automatically earn money back just by shopping at the stores listed on each app.
Dosh << Click here while on your phone to download the app. You will earn $5 just for linking your card.
Drop << Click here while on your phone. Link your card and earn money while you shop at major retailers like Walmart, Macy’s, Target and Dunkin Donuts.
Shopkick << Click here while on your phone to download the app. Shopkick gives you kicks for visiting stores, scanning items, and buying. You can exchange your kicks for gift cards or lots of other rewards.
Walmart App << Click here while on your phone to download the app. Use the Savings Catcher every time you shop at Walmart. Walmart searches for the lowest price for you. If they find a lower price at a local competitor they will refund you the difference on a Walmart gift card. It doesn’t find every single deal but I have gotten money back from them with almost no effort on my part so no complaints.
** Everyone’s savings using these apps will depend on their usage and spending habits.
