By now you probably know that coupons can save you loads of money. What if I said you can save even more, with cash back apps? That's right! These work on top of the savings you're already receiving with coupons. Here I'll tell you the 3 best apps available and how they work. Let's get started...

I'll be honest, I wasn't quick to jump on the whole cash back apps
craze when they first came about. It was that whole fear of the unknown
that kept me at bay. However, I am so glad I got on the bandwagon to
savings! Now I'd like to tell you about the apps that will save you
money, although confusing at first, you'll be saving big in no time!
Ibotta is a free app that pays you cash for everyday purchases! Ibotta
is part survey, part rebate, and part social. It runs on
both Android and iPhone/iPad/iPod devices, I have mine on my iPad. It
works in over 80 retail chains, it will have
select offers you can choose from. Places where you can save with
Ibotta include restaurants, movie theaters, convenience stores,
centers, pet stores, and more! It's one of the most widely
accepted cash back apps available! You can cash-out with either PayPal or Venmo, as soon as you reach $10.
A new feature Ibotta has started
is team-building. You can save along with your family or friends, the
more teamwork you have the more money you save! So that is a
unique feature I've yet to find in other apps!
2. Checkout 51
Checkout 51 is also a free
app that you can download and is available on both iTunes and Google
Play. One great thing about this app is if you have no
smartphone, it's no problem, You can view offers on their website!
When you find an offer you're interested in you can upload your receipt
and manage your account from your computer. Cashing out with
Checkout 51 is a little different. When you reach $20, they will mail
you a check, which usually takes about 2–3 weeks to receive.
Snap is the newest cash back app released and it is apart of Groupon. I have found this
to be my favorite app yet! What's so great about this app, is
that they seem to pay attention to what you're buying at the time. A
great example, last week they had offers of $1 off turkey, $0.50
potatoes, cranberry offers and more. This app is available on the Apple App Store and also on Google Play.
However, this app can also be used through it's website, which is how I
currently use it. Upload a photo of your receipt and they will credit
you. You can cash-out through this app at $20, and they will mail you a check.
Perhaps the best thing about these apps is you can use just one, or all! A great bonus, all of them have rewards for you when your friends join! So start saving, and grab a buddy. After all, we know that shopping with someone else is much more fun than shopping alone!
I love to save money!
From a young age I was interested in saving in anyway I can. Watching my father feed a family of seven by shopping multiple stores and matching sales. My siblings and I hung around the kitchen table clipping coupons for him to use. He taught us not to be cheap but how to be frugal. He also was eager to share his savings with others and that has been passed on to us children.
I share deals on different savings blogs and can always find a "coupon" for that certain item, all you have to do is ask. Come along and save with me!
