Did you know you can make money from your smartphone? I have some AWESOME smartphone apps that PAY you for shopping: iBotta, Checkout 51, Shopkick, Berry Cart, Shopmium, Groupon Snap, and now Top CashBack! All reward you for doing the shopping you already do! And they’re pretty darn easy to use, and therefore to make money! And the best part is ALL of these are free apps, available in the app store!
Berry Cart is the solution for those who think it’s just too expensive to buy fresh organic fruits, veggies, and other healthy foods. Once you’ve reviewed the items eligible for rebate, scan them within the app, then upload your reciept. Once your reciept is reviewed, your money will go in to your account. You can cash out via PayPal or select a gift card, including Target, Starbucks, and more!
iBotta works much like an electronic coupon app, but with a fun twist! Take quick surveys, read recipes, and view videos related to particular items– all to earn higher value coupons for select products. Then after you’ve purchased these items, scan your receipt to redeem these coupons. (And, yep, this allows you to “stack” store, manufacture, AND iBotta coupons all at once!) If you sign up through my link here, you can get a $5 “friend” bonus! Seriously, you can’t lose with this one!!
Checkout 51 offer great rebates on items you buy all. the. time. Got milk? Get money back from it! Once you’ve gotten at least $20 in rebates, you’ll get a check in the mail. Pretty darn easy, huh?
Shopkick keeps the spirit of “checking in” to places alive with this clever app. By simply walking in to your favorite stores (Tar-zshay, anyone?) you earn “kicks”. If you have a little time to spare, and want a fun little treasure hunt, scan select items for bonus kicks. Also, collect kicks by browsing “look books” for participating stores. Kicks can be traded in for gift cards to your favorite stores, like Target, Best Buy, iTunes, Old Navy, CVS, and Macy’s — just to name a few! This one is, by far, my FAVORITE app!
Shopmium has a smaller list, but often offers fun freebies, and the rebates are good for longer spans of time. And best of all? If you sign up with my referral code (FKKUMURF), you can snag a FREE Lindt Chocolate bar! Sweet, huh?
Snap by Groupon is fast becoming one of my favorite grocery rebate apps. In addition to great grocery offers, Snap offers little helpful tidbits of information to help you shop, like how to select broccoli. Seriously, y’all – this one is absolutely awesome.
Top Cashback has partnered with a wide range of stores to offer discounts on your online shopping. When you shop via their partner stores, they will pay a commission for your purchases. Your TopCashback account will be credited and so long as you don’t return the goods we will be able to pass this commission onto you as ‘cashback’, Easy! TopCashback offers a wide range of payment options (PayPal, Amazon, direct deposit, , with NO MINIMUM payment! And best of all, when you refer a friend, you earn TEN BUCKS!
Keep on saving! :o)
