Must have apps

If clipping coupons is not your thing then stop reading, move on. NO NO NO! That is what you heard in the past. When our mom’s were clipping coupons. Not today’s Modern Saver.

No my friends, we have these new little devices that seem to control our entire lives if we let them…… SMARTPHONES!!!

And dumb phones. (Hey these are still an upgrade from our how long ago when there were those things called CORDLESS PHONES!!)

And with these phones and tablets  we can save money on things we are ALREADY buying!

We can even save on produce. Something our parents didn’t see much of.

Here are 6 Money Saving Apps you must download if you want to save some of that hard-earned cash of yours.

And if you are hardcore…. meaning you clip COUPONS and use a smartphone, you are in for mega savings. You can stack your manufacturer coupons with these apps!

Sometimes giving you items for FREE!

We work hard for our money. Let’s spend it wisely!

Here are the 6 Must Have Apps to save money.

( Did I mention these are all FREE to use?!)

1. Checkout 51 

What you do is check out the weekly deals posted to the site, buy a participating product, snap a photo of your receipt showing that you bought the item, and the app will credit you with cash. You can buy the items from ANY STORE!  Once your savings balance hits $20.00, the company will mail you a check. ( Or you can have it go to your bank account.) This is my favorite because the produce offers change weekly! 


2. Savingstar

Add e-coupons that load to your loyalty card, buy the item at your local store and receive the money into your account. You have to choose which store and activate the offer BEFORE YOU PURCHASE your item.


3. Ibotta

This is the same concept as Checkout 51 but you have different offers at different stores. Right now you will earn $10 in your account just for signing up and redeeming your first offer! This app has a listing of local stores to choose from. Tops Markets and BJ’s, Target, and Walmart are on there for my locals! You have to submit a picture of your receipt. This app does not work with my OLD outdated smartphone. It may not work with all phones. But worth a try because they have a lot of any brand offers on there! Cash is put into your

You have to submit a picture of your receipt. This app does not work with my OLD outdated smartphone. It may not work with all phones. But worth a try because they have a lot of any brand offers on there! Cash is put into your paypal account or gift cards. You can read a detailed post I wrote about it here.


4. Target Cartwheel

This is just for Target shoppers.  You can add coupons to your account and scan the barcode from tablet, phone or printed bar code from your computer.  If you shop at Target you need this. Many items are up and up and you can combine Target coupons with manufacturer coupon with this! For a triple stack savings and add in Checkout 51 and Ibotta wow oh wow! Target and BJ’s are my favorite stores!!! Ok so is Marshall’s and Michaels and … 🙂


5. BerryCart

This app is unique because they only offer natural organic items. BerryCart is similar to the Ibotta and CheckOut51 cash back apps in that you can earn money on the purchase of a product.

Like Ibotta, you can also unlock a rebate by learning about a new product or completing an action. On BerryCart you will NOT see products that have High Fructose Corn Syrup, Artificial Sweeteners, or chemicals that you can clean your floor with. You can get your earnings through pay pal or gift cards!


6. Shopkick-

I am just now starting to use this app thanks to a member in our FB group. She loves it and I want to share with you her experience.

Kimberley says- “I LOVE IT!!!! I let my little one (8) do it as we are in the store it keeps her occupied.”

You earn points just for walking through the doors of a store. Then you can turn those points into gift cards.  This app DOES work at BJ’s Wholesale club as well. Many people like to save it up for special holiday presents. If you want to keep the kids occupied or on your phone a lot this is the app for you.


Do you use any of these Apps?

Are there any apps I do not have listed that you would recommend?
