Get Cash and Gift Cards Just for Shopping

If you’re anything like me, you go grocery shopping and end up with a million receipts in your purse. Once a week, I empty out my purse and take out receipts, loose change and an occasional dollar bill. You might think to throw out the receipts, but that would be just like throwing out the money you found! Every week, I use my receipts to make money and earn gift cards. All I need is my phone, a clear table and good lighting.

Not only do I make cash back from my receipts, but I also get cash back without thinking about it, because I have my cards linked to some great apps!

The following apps allow you to take pictures of your receipts, link your debit/credit card and earn some money. No, it’s not a second job, but I love saving up for the holidays. Every cent counts.

CoinOut – As seen on Shark Tank, this app pays you for your receipts. No matter where they are from! You’ll earn a few cents for each receipt, and can cash out once a week (no minimum required!) You can cash out for an Amazon gift card, your bank or a charity of your choice! Plus, you can earn $0.50 per referral!

Ibotta – This classic app allows you to earn cash on everyday purchases. “Before you shop, add offers on great products by completing simple tasks.Buy the products you selected at any participating store. Don’t forget your receipt! Redeem your offers by taking a photo of your receipt. We’ll match the items you bought to the offers you selected and give you the cash! Your cash back will be deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours.” You can only cash out once you reach $20, but if you complete bonuses as well, you can reach this goal pretty quickly. You can also receive $5 per referral. You can cash out for various gift cards or to your PayPal account.

Fetch Rewards – (Use code H9JUV to get 2000 bonus points!) Fetch Rewards is an app that turns your grocery receipts into rewards. Save on over 180 brands EVERY time they’re on your receipt, with over $10 in bonus points available, and rotating exclusive special offers. And all you do is scan your grocery receipt! You can request payout for hundreds of gift cards, including Amazon!

Receipt Pal – The Receipt Pal app is one of my favorites as well! I take pictures of my receipts and earn 100 points for every 4 receipts. You can redeem for Amazon gift cards as low as $1!

Shopkick – Get “kicks” for scanning select products, buying those select products or just walking into a store! You can also link your card to earn kicks for making purchases at select retailers.  Earn kicks to redeem for gift cards and rewards. (P.S. If you go to the discover tab, you’ll find videos you can watch for bonus kicks!)

Dosh – Dosh is a great app that lets you link your debit or credit card to earn cash back at select retailers. Use your linked cards at 1,000s of stores and restaurants, and get up to 10% cash back instantly in your Dosh Wallet. You can also earn for referrals who link a card and get their first cash back from Dosh. They’ll often have specials where you can earn even more for making referrals. You can cash out when you reach a balance of $25.

Drop – Drop claims to “Supercharge Your Credit and Debit Cards” and it’s true! I get Drop points every time I shop at Target, Walgreens, Sephora, Macy’s and Lyft. Those are my selected ongoing offers, but you can choose your own. Beware, you can’t change them once they are chosen though! Every time I make a purchase with one of my linked cards at those stores (even online!) I get a ton of points which I can redeem for gift cards of my choice. You can redeem as low as 5000 points. Invite your friends and get 1000 points for every friend that joins Drop and links a card!

SavingStar – Earn cash back when you shop at your select grocery stores – with nothing to clip or print. You can redeem grocery offers by linking them to your supermarket and drugstore loyalty cards or by submitting a picture of your receipt. SavingStar automatically adds the value of each offer you redeem into your SavingStar account, which you can cash out to your bank, PayPal, or Upromise account, or to a gift card for Starbucks, iTunes, or AMC Theatres.

Spent Money – Another fabulous app that just requires you to link your debit and/or credit cards. You can link multiple cards and earn cash back at select retailers. You can also earn cash back by shopping at retailers directly through the links Spent posts. I’ve earned cash back from shopping at Amazon (which everyone knows is nearly impossible!) and Walgreens. You can cash out once you reach $20.

These are some of my favorite apps. I often find myself “double dipping” to maximize my savings. I’ll buy select products from Walgreens and claim the rebates on Ibotta, SavingStar, Checkout51 and Shopkick. I’ll scan items for Shopkick as well. If I use my debit card, I earn points from Drop and cash back from Spent. I’ll take a picture of that receipt for points or cash on Coinout, Fetch Rewards and ReceiptPal. It’s a great way to earn gift cards or cash for shopping you already do!

Disney On Ice: Dare to Dream



Disney on Ice is a yearly tradition for me and my girls. We love watching the show each year, with all of our favorite princesses and characters. Each year we’ve attended, we’ve left singing the songs and feeling so happy. 

My daughters are 9 and almost 5, and Disney on Ice is one of those shows they BOTH enjoy. Do you know how rare that is? This year, I’m sure they will be loving the show more than ever.  

In Disney On Ice presents Dare To Dream, five daring Disney heroines dream big and overcome obstacles, inspiring everyone to be the hero of his or her own story. The show also brings the action-packed story of Moana to the ice for the first time. Families will join in her quest to save her island and become a master wayfinder while discovering her true identity along the way.

We LOVE Moana! She’s a strong, brave and funny girl who makes us all want to sing along with her.

Toastees Giveaway!

Almondina is one of my favorite brands for crunchy snacks. If you recall, I did a review and giveaway of their delicious biscuits (which I still buy and consume on a regular basis!). So when Almondina contacted me about doing a review of Toastees, I jumped at the chance!

Toastees are a bite sized baked snack, that is the first product introduced by the next generation of the Almondina family. They are crunchy, packed full of flavor, and best of all, HEALTHY! They are low sodium, no cholesterol, low fat, so they are suitable for all members of the family. 






I received Cranberry Almond, Coconut Orange and Sesame Almond.I especially enjoyed the Sesame Almond Thins. They are light and addictive! But I never felt bad about snacking on them, since they are so healthy! My husband enjoyed the Coconut Orange Almond. It sounds like a weird flavor, but the combination of sweet coconut, earthy almond and refreshing orange really works! A great midday snack! 




If you are looking for something to munch on, but want to avoid junk food, these are the perfect snack. They aren’t thick, hard biscuits that are hard to eat. Because they are so thin, they are crispy and light and easily accessible. I can see these being served with tea or coffee as well. It feels like a high-end biscuit that you would get in a bakery. But it’s easily found in your grocery store!

Here’s another tip: You can add your favorite toppings to take this snack to the next level! Try cheese, peanut butter, jam or even your favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread!


Toastees are being carried coast-to-coast by stores including all Sprouts Markets, Bed Bath & Beyond, Publix, Fairway Markets, Giant Eagle, Kroger Michigan, Amazon, Almondina.com and others.

Almondina was generous enough to offer a sampler pack worth $40 to two Crazy Couponing winners. Enter below!

Fruit Bliss Giveaway!

Dried fruit, huh? Doesn’t sound exciting, and I’ll be honest, it never appealed to me. I have a hard time eating fresh fruit! There’s no way you are going to get me to eat dried fruit. Until now.

I started working with Fruit Bliss towards the end of December. Fruit Bliss is a #deliciouslyjuicy dried fruit brand. They say they are “dried fruit reinvented”. Well, how can you make dried fruit different? Fruit Bliss has found a way.

Fruit Bliss offers a great variety of delicious fruits. 
Fruit Bliss takes exotic and delicious fruits like figs, dates, plums and apricots, and sun-sweetens them. Then, they infuse them with water. That’s it! Fruit+Water. Sounds simple enough, right? Actually, most dried fruits are loaded with preservatives and sugar, giving you a false sense of nutrition. Fruit Bliss is organic, vegan, non-gmo, kosher and has no added sugars or preservatives. So you get the deliciousness of your favorite fruits all year round AND the nutrition!

Fruit Bliss can be used for cooking, baking, smoothies, as an addition to yogurt or oatmeal and much much more! I made a date smoothie for my sister, because dates are high in magnesium and a superfood for pregnant women. My three year old loved the added sweetness to her oatmeal. The options are endless.

A bowl of oatmeal, bananas, Fruit Bliss apricots and blueberries. My three year old loved it!

Because Fruit Bliss wants everyone to taste the #deliciouslyjuicy difference, they have decided to send three packages of Fruit Bliss Minis to two Crazy Couponing readers! This giveaway is open to residents of the continental U.S. Enter below for your chance to win!
