Did you know you can get PAID to shop?

If you have a smart phone.. this is the place for you..


Ok, so if you have a smart phone you are going to want to download some if not ALL of the below Apps.

These can be found in either the Play Store (Android) or the App Store (I-Phone)

They are intended for you to save money. Most of them are “rebate” apps (meaning you will get money back once you buy the item. But there are a few that are coupon apps that you can use in the store. (where they will scan your phone as a coupon)

So .. the first step I would say is set up a PayPal Account.

Paypal is FREE, and it is the safest way to send money to someone online.. but it is also the best way to get your money back from these rebate apps.

Ok .. here we go..

Ibotta – Click Here to sign up*

Ibotta is one of the best out there.. they offer things that you actually use from the stores you actually shop from.

This is a rebate app, so for example it will tell you to buy 1 gallon of milk from shoprite.. you do that, and it will put $0.50 (or whatever the amount is) into your account. Once you have $5 in your account you can then move it to your paypal account… FREE MONEY just for buying the items you would buy anyway.

* This link is “my” referral link… by using that link you will be joining a team with me that gives us  extra money each month if our team meets a certain amount.

Checkout51 – Click Here To Sign Up

This app can be used with or without a smartphone, but using the phone opens more options for you. It is very similar to Ibotta, but it can be used at ANY STORE not just the ones listed.

Shopmium – Click Here To Sign Up

Once again .. this is just like Ibotta and Checkout51. And can also be used at any store.

 Snap by Groupon – Click Here to sign up

This is just like Ibotta, however some of the rebates can be redeemed unlimited amounts of times.

BerryCart – Click Here to Sign Up

This is just like the rest .. but the items are all Natural Organic Healthy Items ..

Shopkick – Click Here To Sign Up

I am fairly new to this app so I can only tell you what I have read about it … aparently you scan items while in stores and get “kicks” when you have enough “kicks” you can get gift cards and other offers.. apparently there are exclusive store deals as well.

*Above is my referral link .. I have no idea if I get something or you do but hey .. use it please :)

Target Cartwheel – Click Here To Sign Up

If you are a target shopper .. you need this app. You simply click on the coupons that you want and have the cashier scan your phone.

SavingStar – Click Here To Sign Up

You link your store loyalty cards to it, select the items that you want to buy, and once you buy those items you get paid back for them. Once again, once you have $5 in your “savingstar account” you can cash it out to your paypal. You do NOT need a smartphone to use savingstar, but with the app you can use savingstar at any store (even ones that do not have loyalty cards)

Retail Me Not – Click Here to Sign Up

If you have ever been in line in a store and said “is there a promotion for this I dont know about” then this is the app for you. I personally have used this several times for my photo prints from walgreens. You select the store you are at, and they will let you know any promotion that the store is currently having and the correct coupon code for it.

Red Laser – Click Here to sign up 

Basically what this does is keep ALL of your loyalty cards in your phone. So if you happen to leave your keys home, they can just can your phone and you will get the savings. It is also a very good comparison tool. You can scan an item, and find out the prices for that item in the surround stores.

Walmart Saving Catcher – Click Here to sign up

I have yet to use this (as I do not shop walmart often) but aparently, You scan your reciept, they compare prices to the local competitors and if you spent more money at walmart they will send you a gift card with the difference. Sounds good to me !

7-11 App – Click Here to sign up

I am a crazy coffee drinker .. and I am at 7-11 about 9 times a week or more. This is a fairly new app, but they do offer coupons and offers that are worth looking into.

Shoprite – Click Here to sign up


You can view the ad, create your shopping list, “clip” e-coupons, find recipes, and even order your grocerys online thru this app.
