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!

Superpoints is BACK!

That’s right, the site that we all loved that ended abruptly has come back to life!

Click the Super Lucky button to get points! Complete offers! Invite friends! Get rewards!

It’s a little different now, as you have to level up to unlock certain rewards. But I am at level 12 already and have redeemed for Amazon and Starbucks already! It’s SO EASY!

<span class="_3qi9" data-reactid=".$.0.1.0.$right.″>So far, I paid $10 for the platinum status. This allowed me to get more points. The platinum status is a one time payment and is good for one year. I already redeemed for $10 Amazon and $25 Starbucks, so I basically got the money back already. When you go to your home page, there should be a block on the left side that says “Earn super points now”. If you go there, you can get more points for doing different offers (there is a free offer wall as well). The more points you earn, the more XP you get, which helps you get to the next level. There are different prizes at different levels. 

Just sign up, confirm your email, complete your profile and click the button!
