We love earning cash back for things we were already going to buy, and here’s a few of the companies we use to do so. When shopping or booking travel online we always go through whichever portal offers the most cash back, and we use three grocery apps to save money on food from the store. Of course these are all free to sign up for, and most all of them offer a sign up bonus. I mean, you’re throwing away money if you don’t sign up for them.
Checkout51 –“Buy groceries, earn cash back”. Redeem rebates for groceries and sundries by scanning in your shopping receipts. After earning $20, you can request a check. I use this app in conjunction with Ibotta and Walmart Savings Catcher.
*Ebates – Earn $10 when you sign up through this linkand make a qualifying purchase. Over the years we’ve earned nearly $900 through Ebates shopping online for everything from clothes to textbooks to hotels. $900 can buy a whole lot of McD’s coffees. Which reminds me, I need to add McD’s to this list.
*Giving Assistant – Earn $5 when you sign up through this link and make a qualifying purchase. Giving Assistant earns cash back for shopping online, and gives you the option to donate a certain percentage of money earned to the charity of your choice. Feel good about saving money!
*GoCashBack – Earn $5 when you sign up through this link and make a qualifying purchase. This is the only site to still offer cash back at rei.com, so when we’ve got a coupon or a dividend to burn this is a Warcken favorite.
*Ibotta – Earn $10 when you sign up through this linkand make a qualifying purchase. I use this any time we shop, as they offer cash back at Walmart, Target, and even Reasor’s for you Oklahomans. Use it while you shop and search the product you’re looking for, and buy accordingly. For instance, search ‘bacon’, then buy what’s offered.
*Mr. Rebates – Earn $5 when you sign up through this link and make a qualifying purchase. Mr. Rebates always seems to offer the most cash back on hotel sites.
McDonald’s App – This is a Warcken favorite for road trips. There are daily BOGO deals on food, plus a free coffee after you purchase five. We always try to use our own coffee mugs and are oftentimes just charged for a senior coffee, and sometimes they even give it to us as a free refill! What class!
*MyPoints – You can use MyPoints as a shopping portal, but I find other sites are much more lucrative. I use this strictly for clicking through daily emails at 5 points/email. That adds up to some nice gift card redemptions throughout the year.
*TopCashBack – I find this site almost always offers the most cash back, and they sometimes offer gimmicky riddle games for a chance to earn even more. Cash back, gimmicks?!
*Upromise – Earn $20 when you sign up through this link and make a qualifying purchase within 30 days. Upromise typically offers 5% cash back on all their sites, including Walmart which is obviously a great deal. We use Upromise in conjunction with our Upromise GoalSaver savings account for automatic travel savings.
Walmart Savings Catcher – This is a free feature of the Walmart app and is the easiest way to automatically save on their purchases. It works just like a competitor’s ad, only Walmart does all the work electronically and credits you the price difference. All you have to do is scan your receipts into the app, or enter the info manually online.
*Gregory and I receive compensation- monetary, miletary, and pointetary- for clicks and sign ups through these links. We know you have many choices for shopping online, planning travel, and applying for new credit cards and you don’t have to use any links you find on our site. But we sure appreciate when you do.
