There's An App For That...


Coupons come in more varieties than your printer and the Sunday paper. Did you know there are a variety of other avenues in which you can save? Let me introduce you to two of my favorites.

The first one I want to introduce you to is SavingStar. It allows you to add your member/savings cards to your account and activate e-coupons that instead of coming off your bill, are added to your account. What's fun, is that these coupons have no connection to any other coupons you might have. So just once you can actually use two manufacturer coupons on one item. The only unfortunate thing is that the coupons are only single coupons. You can't buy 6 and use them 6 times. You just get one. But every little bit is nice!

If you don't have an app friendly phone, don't worry! You can still create an account online and benefit that way too! Just click the logo above to get started. Once you reach the low minimum of $5 in savings, you can get a pay out!

The next one is one of my favorites: Ibotta. This is a fun app that allows you to earn money by answering a question, learning a fact, watching a video, etc. on an item that you have already purchased that currently has an offer! Earn anywhere from $.50 to $2.00 per product. Good deal! But you'll need your receipt to photograph as proof! So don't throw it away too quickly. And this one also has a low payout of just $5.00.

There's a couple to get you started. There are others out there but these are the two that are in the lead! Have fun!
