Want to save money on groceries in the easiest way possible? How about your Cell Phone paying it’s own bill each month? How about making money off your receipts and the products you already Buy? Enter Ibotta, Shopkick, and Receipt Hog! I love these three smartphone apps and I use them all in conjunction with each other. I will go a little more in detail and tell you how these work and truly how simple they are!
Let’s start with the easiest… Receipt Hog. The basic idea here with Receipt Hog is literally you just take pictures of your receipts and earn coins (points). Coins are then turned into a payment to Paypal or a Amazon Gift card. It’s that simple. You also earn spins where you can get more coins just by moving up levels. It’s simple. To get started Click Here! Use My code Swiv2254 and we both get goodies for it!
Next is one of my favorites.. Shopkick! This one is just as simple as opening the app when you go into the stores that support it. For me locally it’s anywhere from Walmart, Wegmans, Cvs… literally a zillion places. You get a certain number of Kicks(points) for walking in and then more Kicks for scanning the items they want you to scan in the store. Also if you link your credit card up to the app you get points for those purchases made at those stores as well! These ponts can be used for instant giftcards to any number of places. It’s actually kind of awesome because you redeem the giftcard and they scan the code right off your phone. To be honest, it’s kinda fun! I find myself going a little out of my way to get those Kicks!

Lastly I will talk about Ibotta. This one is a little trickier. You get the app and pick through the different stores to choose the one you shopped at today. Then scroll through the items (which btw arent just food! Clothing or online shopping.. anything you can think of is listed!) and watch tiny little 10 second videos to unlock rebates for the items you bought. When you have done that click redeem and start scanning the barcodes of the items you purchased! They even have things called Any Brands. So things like Milk, bread, Eggs, some produce … you can get rebates on all these things! You redeem and take a pic of your receopt and bam you are done! The rebates are then either turned into your choice of giftcards or a payment to Paypal. Certain cards you can even link your loyalty cards up to it and it takes some of the work out for you! Click Here and put in my code msyxoga to get started!
Using these Three Apps, my cell phone almost pays for itself! In all essence you are making money off of something you were just throwing out before! And i will admit it seems like a little work but after my shopping trip it takes literally five minutes. Try it and I guarantee you will get hooked!
