Money Saving Apps and Programs

Here is a summary of the apps and programs I use to get cash back on my purchases I am already making. Please click on each programs name to either be taken to my blog post about that program for a more in depth look or the websites page.

Swagbucks: Earn points towards gift cards or merchandise by searching the web, shopping online, taking surveys, etc.

Ebates: Cash back program for online shopping at select retailers. Cash out with Paypal

iBotta: Smart phone app that gives you a cash rebate for purchasing select products at select locations. Cash out with PayPal or gift cards

Checkout 51: Cash back rebates for select items purchased at any grocery store. Cash out with PayPal. Smartphone not required, but does have an app for easy use.

Shopkick: Earn rewards for walking into stores, scanning select items, completing tasks. Also has frequent discounts at select retailers. Cash out with gift cards. 

Target's Cartwheel: Mobile app (accessible by internet) that gives discounts on select items at Target. Can be stacked with other coupons for more savings in store. Simply have the cashier scan your smartphone at checkout for instant discounts.


Plink is a program where you link your debit or credit card to your account and anytime you shop at a store in your wallet (can be changed as frequently as needed), you receive Plink Points. 1000 Plink Points is equal to $10 in gift cards. Once your card is linked at your offers are in your wallet, there is nothing more for you to do!


Retailers as of 8/8/14

Rewards include gift cards to several different retailers such as Amazon, Kohls, Walmart, Overstock, iTunes, Barns & Noble, and other retailers. 

My Plink Point history. (Plink used to be affiliated and integrated with Swagbucks so I have earned WAY more gift cards than is shown here.)
