I'm always on the lookout for ways to save and earn more money for my family. These are some of my favorite apps and sites to use for discounts and rewards.
Ebates - If you haven't discovered the awesomeness of Ebates, you have to now. Sign up for an account and earn CASH BACK from selected retailers. If you shop online frequently, your earnings will rack up fast and furiously. It's amazing!
Ibotta - This rebate app offers a several rebates from popular stores. Some rebates are brand specific, some are not. Select your rebate, scan your product barcode and upload your receipt. The effort of capturing the receipt, especially if it's a long one, is a bit of a pain, but once your accumulate the $10 minimum for a PayPal cash-out or gift card, it's sort of sweet!
ShopKick - The downside to Shopkick is that you have to remember to open your app to get points, the upside is that once you do, it's so easy to accumulate points! Get points simply by walking in to stores and additional points for scanning items. If you link a credit card, you can even get kicks for in-store purchases at select stores. Use your points to get gift cards to such shopping favorites as Target, Walmart, TJMaxx, Old Navy and more.
Walmart Savings Catcher - Download the Walmart app and scan your receipts using the savings catcher. The app will compare your purchases to other stores in the area. If another store has your purchase for a lower price, Walmart will match that price and the difference will be added to your account. Cash in for Walmart gift cards. It's a win-win!
