Saving money and budgeting is something I’m continuously working on. One of my favorite ways to save money is by using Rebate and money back apps. This is a fast and easy way to get money back by simply taking a photo on your phone.
All of these apps are free and easy to use. Using these apps has saved my family hundreds of dollars and I know they can help you save money too.
Getting Money Back the Easy Way: Rebate Apps
The number one Money Back app I use is Receipt Hog.
This app is free to download and easy to use. You simply take a picture of each receipt after shopping. These receipts translate into points in the app and after you reach a specific number of points you can cash out via PayPal or Amazon gift card.
The reason this app is the one I use the most is because no matter what I purchase as long as it is at a qualifying store I get points. (I have cashed out twice with this app, it’s fast and easy.)
Ibotta is an app I use at least once a month, for my Costco and Walmart shopping trips. I shop at Aldi a lot and Ibotta does not partner with them so I can only submit receipts when I shop at other stores.
My favorite is when Ibotta has any brand or any purchase rebates.
An example of an any brand purchase would be a rebate that is $0.25 cash back one-gallon white milk – any brand. This works for any brand of white milk you purchase as long as it is one gallon.
Checkout 51 is another app I have on my phone. This app has a variety of product rebates, but I don’t typically purchase the products listed.
So why do I keep the app?
The reason I keep this app is that at least once a month they have produce rebates. The produce rebates work for any brand of the specified fresh produce.
4. Savings Catcher
The last money saving app I have on my phone is the Walmart app. After shopping at Walmart I quickly scan the QR code on the bottom of the receipt into Savings Catcher and if anything was I purchased was on sale at another store I receive a credit.
Have you used any of these apps on your phone? Do you think using them has saved you any money?
