You’ve bought your gorgeous new home and like a lot of people,  your finances might be a little tight. Whether you’re in Columbus, Akron, Florida, Apple Valley Lake or the Mount Vernon area, you can benefit from these fun and simple money-saving tips.

 

  1. Ibotta-  This is an easy- to- use app for your smart phone.  All you do is sign up, and then choose your store (Kroger is one of them!) and then start to rack in the savings.  For example, if you choose Kroger, you will see all the items on which you can earn cash back.  When you “unlock” these items, you either submit a receipt after purchase, or link your loyalty card to receive credit.  Once you accumulate 25 dollars, you can cash out using Venmo, PayPal, or you can choose a gift card. Follow this link to join my team and start saving TODAY.  You get ten dollars just for using my referral code: https://ibotta.com/r/qiijyr

  2. OnGo- OnGo is another app for your smart phone.  Download it from your app store and you will be sent surveys based on your pre-survey information.  Surveys will pay an average of 1.00/ survey.  I was paid 100 dollars to do a restaurant survey.  You can cash out at 30 dollars with your PayPal account.

  3. Coupons.com On this website, you can print coupons right from your computer.  You just need to enter your zip code and download the coupon printer app.  This is an easy way to save without having to buy the Sunday newspaper.

  4. Receipt hog- This is a fun way to turn your receipts from every day shopping into cash.  Simply scan your receipts via the app on your smartphone and watch the points turn into cash.

  5. Checkout 51- Just like Ibotta, Checkout51 offers you cash back on your groceries.  Simply unlock the items that you want and then scan your receipts.  Once you reach 20 dollars, you can cash out.

  6. Cartwheel- If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for anything Target.  I like Target for many reasons, but one main reason is that they’re always looking out for our wallets.  Target is one of the only stores that will let you “stack” coupons.  Stacking is when you can use a manufacturer’s coupon alongside a store coupon.  Target has an app called “cartwheel.”  All you do is check the items that you want and then scan your smartphone at the register.  These cartwheel deals can be stacked with a manufacturer’s coupon AND a store coupon for TRIPLE the savings.

  7. MobiSave- MobiSave is yet ANOTHER mobile phone app.  Simply check the items you’re ready to buy and scan your receipts after your purchase.  You can cash out via PayPal.

  8. SavingStar- This is another app for your smart phone. All you need to do is check the items that interest you, purchase the items and scan your receipts.  This also works online.  If you click the retailer from the SavingStar website, you can earn cash back just as you would via the app.

  9. Inbox Dollars- This is an online rewards club that pays money for your opinions.  Simply play games, take surveys, spin the daily wheel, or check your email to receive real cash.  this takes awhile to accumulate dollars, but it’s worth a couple of seconds per day of your time.

 

We might have to revisit this topic again in the near future, because making extra pennies is easier than ever with the advancement of technology. Enjoy!
