After you have your receipt in hand, open the app to check off items on the list that you have purchased and take a photo of your receipt; it’s that simple. Your savings will accumulate and when they do, you’ll get a check. The items on the list change and the accepted shopping center listing is growing. Go check it out today! This platform was founded by a trio of innovative guys who want you to save money.
- Ibotta– This app is great for saving on the big brand items and any brand items. It’s easy to get savings using this app, but remember to add the items/rebates you plan to purchase to the list prior to purchasing. Items must be added to your list before you purchase. Mostly likely you are adding items to your list that you already planned to purchase, so you may as well get money back! Redeeming the cash back is simple: add items you plan to purchase to your list, shop, then take a photo of your receipt in the app. When your savings accumulate you can cash out with PayPal, Venmo or gift cards! If you use my referral link, you will get $10 as a welcome bonus after redeeming your first rebate.The founder of this platform is a Harvard, Oxford, and Yale Grad, so he knows smart savings!
- Cartwheel by Target App– Who doesn’t love Target. Well if you love Target you should have the Cartwheel app. It’s easy to use and the perks are good. How it works: add offers to your list before shopping or while you shop, at checkout have the cashier scan your cart’s barcode for the savings. The app also offers coupons with barcodes, you do not need to print these coupons, just have the cashier scan the barcode. You earn points each time you shop and currently 5k points gets you a perk. Two times, I’ve used my perks to get a container of laundry pods, not sexy but useful! I love the simplicity of this app.
- Wal-Mart Savings Catcher App– If you shop at Wal-Mart, get this app. How it works: you shop and scan your receipt. Literally, that is it! Wal-Mart compares the prices of the items you buy when other comparable stores in the area, if the stores have an item you purchased at a lower price, Wal-Mart will reimburse that amount to you account. The cash back accumulates and you can use the earnings for more shopping.
Each app is pretty simple to use, but if you want another post of more detailed instructions on how to use each app, let me know.
