5 Apps that Save Money on Groceries

5 Money Saving Grocery Coupon Apps


(1) Ibotta

Ibotta is a cash back program where users can earn money by shopping at grocery retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, Publix, and other major grocery stores. Simply unlock rebates for items by learning about products, taking a one question poll, or viewing a video. After unlocking rebates, simply buy the product at a qualifying retailer and take a picture of your receipt with your smartphone to claim your rebate. Next, the rebate amount will be credited to your account. Once your account balance has reached $5 you can chose to cash out your earnings. Earnings can be transferred to a PayPal or Venmo account or you can purchase a gift card.

One new feature that Ibotta has recently implemented is a team bonus. You can add friends (from facebook, twitter, or email) to your team and when your team reaches the monthly team threshold your team earns a bonus. For example in July 2014 if your team redeemed $10 in rebates then you would earn a $1 bonus for the month. If you would like to join my team click here . The more friends you have the easier it is to earn team bonuses. Also, when you refer new users to the Ibotta app and they sign up and use the app you will also receive a $5 bonus.
I really like the Ibotta app because they are usually some high value rebates available. My two year old wears pull-ups and I buy the big box from Sam’s Club. Well right now there is a $6 rebate on Ibotta for Pull-ups. For me I’m saving all my rebates earned until it is time to do some Christmas shopping. Then I’ll either redeem it for gift cards to give as gifts or transfer it to PayPal to actually buy gifts.
Ibotta is not limited to just grocery saving you can also save with online shopping and also with in-store electronics, apparel, health & beauty, home improvement, and more.

(2) Checkout 51

Checkout 51 is very similar to Ibotta, it is also a cashback program. Each Thursday the app posts new offers that can be redeemed until the following Wednesday. To redeem offers simply take a picture of your reciept and submit it using your smartphone. The great thing about Checkout 51 is that you can earn cashback for buying produce. There are often two or three produce offers available each week along with milk and sometimes eggs too. With Checkout 51 you must accumalate $20 in rebates before you can cash out.

(3) Saving Star

Saving Star is another cash back program where you chose from available grocery rebates and once items are purchased you receive a credit to your account. However, with Saving Star you can link your grocery loyalty card to your account and once you purchase an available offer your account is automatically credited. If shopping at grocery store without a loyalty card just simply take a picture of your receipt and submit it with your smartphone to receive cash back. Saving Star allows you to add offers from your desktop as well as the mobile app. You can also earn cash back from online shopping through Saving Star as well.

(4) Kroger (or your local grocery chain)

Check to see if your local grocery store has an app. I love using my Kroger app to load e-coupons directly to my loyalty card. Once I scan my loyalty card at checkout the coupons are automatically applied at the end of the checkout process. Often times there will be e-coupons deals identical to paper coupon deals. So you can save time if you are bad a clipping coupons by just using your grocery store app.

(5) Target Cartwheel App

The Target Cartwheel App allows you to select special offers only available at Target and saves them in the app. Once you checkout you show the cashier the barcode found on the app and once it is scanned any deals you have saved will be applied to your purchase. You can double up on savings by using coupons and the Cartwheel App. You can use the Cartwheel from your desktop or on your mobile device.
