Want to Save Some Cash? Checkout My Three Favorite Money Saving Apps!

I'm not like the folks you see on that reality show Extreme Couponing. I'm a be real with you. I hate doing math and the math they do on that show goes way over my head sometimes. I've mentioned many times before that math and I are not friends. We're hardly even acquaintances. But if you're like me you love to save some change here and there at the grocery store. 
I stumbled upon two apps called Ibotta and Checkout 51 a few years ago. At first I was a little skeptical about it but decided to try them out over the course of a month. Let's just say after a month I was sold! 

Here is why I like the following apps:


The first month I used the app I saved $14.00! I have been using it now for going on three years in June and I have saved a totally of $233.30. That's a good chunk of change if you ask me. 

I mostly use Ibotta for grocery shopping but you can also use it for the following categories: Pharmacy, Clothing, Booze (aka Beer, Wine, and Spirits), Beauty & Wellness, Specialty (for example JoAnn's, Groupon, Best Buy, etc.), Restaurants & Bars, and Mobile Shopping. The offers change weekly and may not be offered the following week. So, if you find a good deal use it while you can!
All you need to do is a scan the bar code of the items you purchased and snap a photo of the receipt and submit it. It's that easy. You can cash out via PayPal or Venmo or opt to get a gift card to places like Starbucks, Target, Kmart, Gap, Old Navy, Amazon, etc. 

Just for joining and trying the app with my referral code Ibotta will give you a $10 welcome bonus and I will receive a $5 bonus. *Note: If you use my referral code I will receive $5 for each new sign-up from Ibotta.* If you're interested here is my referral code: yqyrzq


Checkout 51 is a weekly app that updates every Thursday with new offers. I mostly use it for fresh produce but occasionally find other items. All you need to do is snap a picture of your receipt and hit submit. I have saved a total of $41.60 with this app. When you reach a balance of $20 or more in your account you can cash out and a check will be mailed to you. It's legit too. I have received two checks so far and really enjoy the app. 


The last and final app that I use is SavingStar. I have only been using it for a year but I do like it. It's similar to Checkout 51 but instead of receiving a check you can cash out your balance at $5 via PayPal. I have saved a total of $20.23. The app is easy to use and all you need to do is scan the bar code of the items purchased and upload your receipt. 

Between all three apps I have saved $295.13, not bad for someone who hates math and clipping coupons huh? I would love to hear your thoughts or suggestions on other apps that you use to save money on groceries. Drop me a comment below.
Have a wonderful day!
