So if you follow my blog I know you have heard me talk about the various apps that pay you. There are a ton of these apps and I literally use every one (because I like to maximize my savings) I do have a few favorites though.
If you don’t know about apps that pay you be sure to take a look at the series Here! Simply put – they are various rebate apps or literal apps that will pay you for using them. I know it sounds too good to be true – but it’s not – I’ve been using some of the apps for years!
There are a few different apps that are rebate apps – so you get an amount back after you purchase an item (almost like using a coupon after the fact). There are a few that I use most often, they are Ibotta, Checkout51 & Snap (there are many more of these kind of apps – but these I use the most). You literally purchase an item that has a rebate (which I will post if there is a rebate matching a deal in my Stock Up Deals Section) then snap a picture of the receipt and submit it – within a day or so (depending on the app) you will get confirmation on the rebate and once you hit the minimum you can cash out of the app.
Then there are the Apps that Pay you for checking into places. My favorite of these is Shopkick – I’ve received SOOO many Target gift cards just for using this app.
Last but not least are the apps that pay you for submitting receipts. There are two categories of this kind of app. The first is the app that allows you to accumulate points and then you can cash those points in for gift cards or cash. The two apps are Receipt Hog and Receipt Pal (Receipt Pal accepts much more of a variety of receipts than the Hog). The second category are the apps that literally give you a percentage back on what you purchased. These apps are Yaarlo and Find & Save. Yaarlo will give you about a percent-ish back on your purchases (basically 1 point earned = 1 cent) and accepts nearly any receipt. While Find & Save has more of a specific store thing going on (they run promotions depending on the store that change weekly). With Find & Save you will likely get a higher percent back on your purchase if you meet the requirements.
There are literally a ton of different apps that I use and every app that I feature in the apps that pay you section I personally use.
If I’m being honest the apps that you submit receipts too are most likely my favorites – because it’s an after the fact – no specific item needed king of deal.
I’ve saved almost $10 from Yaarlo within the first few weeks of using it alone! I know for a fact I’ve save at least a couple hundred from these apps this year but for the sake of the series I will keep it at the $50 mark (because not everyone will want to use a lot of apps – I just like to max out my savings).
Saved with this methods $50
Total Saved: $1,032
