The Best Cash Back Apps For Saving Money On Groceries
Food is one category in the household budget that can take up a big chunk of your income especially if you have a large family to feed.
While it’s easy to make adjustments to your food budget like cutting out processed foods some grocery staples cannot be avoided.
It’s almost impossible nowadays to find coupons for meat, fresh fruit, and vegetables in your local Sunday paper, so that’s why these 4 cashback apps make earning money on real food easy peasy.
Ibotta is an app that allows you to earn money back from in-store and online purchases on everyday items. It currently supports 284 retailers including stores like Target, Walmart, CVS, Kroger, and Publix. Cashback amounts per item vary anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars so it doesn’t take long to see a decent return.
In under 6 months, I earned back $441.05. The best part about this is that you can save real money on real food. We aren’t just talking about cereal, candy bars, and potato chips but things like fruit, vegetables, and meat.
Once you reach the $20 threshold you can cash out through PayPal or if you choose, you can redeem your earnings by a gift card to places like Sephora, Best Buy, Amazon, Target and many more. Right now they are offering a $5 welcome bonus to new sign-ups once you redeem your first offer.
Dosh is a cashback app that finds you cash without the hassle, literally. Connect a debit/credit card to the app and once you purchase from an authorized retailer it will add the cash to your account automatically.
Tip: Connect all debit/credit cards that you would use for food, gas, or eating out. In order to get credit for your purchases, you need to have them in your account. Once you connect a card you will receive a $5 bonus.
No coupon clipping or receipt uploading required. Dosh supports a lot of great retailers including Costco, Sam’s Club, Instacart, and Door Dash. This is just one of those must have apps that you NEED in your arsenal.
Ebates is a great app if you love to shop online. Have you ever used Amazon or Walmart to shop for your pantry items and toiletries? Currently, you can get up to 10% back from Walmart and 3% back for Amazon Prime Pantry. If online grocery shopping isn’t your thing you can also use Ebates for any other online shopping purchase. A nice perk is that you only need $5 to cash out and you can receive your cash through paypal which makes it quick and easy. Right now when you sign up you will receive a $10 welcome bonus.
