Using Rebate Apps to Get Cash Back
Getting a great deal is one of my absolute favorite things in life! Something about it is exciting and exhilarating. Like most people I can’t just spend unlimited amounts of money whenever I feel like it. I discovered several apps and websites over the last few years that have allowed me to get cash back and make money just for shopping online and in my favorite stores! Using these awesome money saving apps lets me purchase the things I want and need while still sticking to my monthly budget.
Cash-back apps compile coupons/deals from hundreds of different retailers and offer money (usually a certain percentage or dollar amount) back on your total purchase. The money-saving trick is to use the apps on purchases that you were already planning on making and combine them with coupons. I made hundreds of dollars last year by utilizing Ibotta, Ebates, Checkout 51 and Snagshout. Get cash back this holiday shopping season by signing up for the programs listed below!
How it works: Download the app, select stores you shop at (Meijer, Walmart, Target, Joann Fabrics, etc.), and browse offers . Find items you normally buy or that interest you and complete the simple steps to add the offers to your app. Save your receipt after buying the item in the store and redeem your offers by taking a picture of your receipt and submitting it. For example, right now at Joann Fabrics you can get 20% back on your total purchase just by submitting your receipt! Combine that with an in-store coupon and you have a great deal! Cash back will be deposited in your account within 48 hours. Visit this tutorial for a detailed breakdown on how to use Ibotta. I made almost $200 this year by getting cash back on items I normally buy at the grocery store!

How it works: Ebates is an online shopping cash-back program that credits you a certain percentage of your total purchase back. This percentage can range anywhere from 1-40%! This is my absolute favorite rebate program! It is easy to use and offers cash back from thousands of online retailers including Old Navy, Kohl’s, Target, Groupon and JcPenney. Use Ebates when shopping online at your favorite stores, earn cash back on your purchases, then get paid via paypal or check. It’s that simple. I love using Ebates when shopping online for Christmas presents. Don’t forget to sign up before buying gifts online on Cyber Monday!

How it works: Checkout 51 is an app that gives you money back for buying specific items at the grocery store. Select the offers in the app to determine whether any of the items you’re already buying are eligible for money back. They update their list of offers every Thursday, so make sure to check the app before you head to the store. The great thing about Checkout 51 is you can still use coupons on the items in the store, while also getting money back using the app.

How it works: Snagshout isn’t actually a rebate site, but they do offer significant discounts on Amazon products. Snagshout is a website/app that connects customers with thousands of new businesses and their products for a discounted price. The items are sold through Amazon and feature an array of different products including clothing, home and garden, healthy and beauty and electronics. This is a great way to try new products at an incredible discount. Just sign-up using your email, pick your deal by clicking the “Snag It” button on the product page and Snag your first discount code. Use your Snag code at Amazon.com during checkout to get the deal! Please note that you will have to pay for shipping if you do not have Amazon Prime.
