After I had my daughter and became a stay at home mom I realized that we needed to buckle down and save more money, so we started collecting our change, cutting back on things, and spending more time at home. These 5 money saving apps are all for grocery shopping (some retail stores too) and will give you cash rebates for the things you already buy on a weekly basis! At first, I didn’t think we’d get much back but they have really started to add up and every little bit counts when you are trying to save, right? So here are the grocery apps with cash rebates that I use!
With Ibotta, there are several ways to grab rebates on your purchases. You must either watch a short video or answer a poll before the rebate is unlocked, easy peasy!
Shop Online: After you make an account with Ibotta, choose “shop now” and make purchases from your favorite retailers to get cash back!
Submit A Receipt: Go shopping at your favorite stores and submit the receipt by taking a picture, then your rebates are on their way! It has to be a store they support, but they have a WIDE variety. I have yet to try for a store and not found it.
Link A Loyalty Account: Link your loyalty card, unlock the rebates, and go shopping! That’s it!!!
Once you reach $10.00, request your rebate check, or gift card. Join with me and receive bonus team rebates every month!
2. Checkout 51
Each week Checkout 51 offers about 20-30 rebates on grocery items. My first time using it I recieved a $5.00 rebate! This week they offer $29.00 in rebates! All you do is go shopping, then upload your receipt to the app. The best part is, they accept receipts from ANYWHERE!
Tip: With most of these apps I check to see what they’re offering in rebates before I go to the store to make sure I purchase the right items. Some are brand specific and some aren’t.
Reach $20.00 and request your rebate check!
Snap is a grocery rebate app created by Groupon, so you know it has to be great. This week they’re offering 40 different rebates! Snap is also very user friendly. Check the rebate items every week, go buy them at ANY store, snap a picture of your receipt, and receive the quoted rebate!
Reach $20.00 and request a check! Join here!
Savings Star offers around 20-30 rebates, one healthy offer, and one FREEBIE! First check to see if your grocery store is a participant, then check out their offers, shop, and submit a picture of your receipt! This app is great, the only negative for me is that a few of the offers require you to buy multiples in order to be eligible for the rebate.
Request your rebate at only $5.00!
This one is my personal favorite because there are no specific rebates to shop for. Shop at Walmart, then come home and scan your receipt into the Savings Catcher app or type in the TC code on your receipt. Walmart then compares their prices with the sales ads from stores in your area. If one of these stores offers a lower price, Walmart sends you the difference! This is price matching made easy! The best thing about it is that you can use your coupons and Walmart still uses the original price to compare, so you could potentially MAKE MONEY!
Redeem your rebates onto a Walmart gift card anytime!
