Savings!

I felt like this needed to be a page because it is important to have a place to put notes about saving money!

Please note that some links found on this page may be an affiliate link where I may earn credit for anything you use from the link, thank you for your support!

Did you know that you can print coupons right off line? I find that these coupons are often a higher value than those in the Sunday paper. I generally coupon at stores that double coupons under $.99.

Apps that help you save at the grocery store? Yup, there are quite a few of them.

Ibotta
This app gives you cash back for purchases you make, they specify items in specific stores. You will need to build up your cash back to get the refund, starting at $10. There are bonuses that you can earn for extra cash back as well.

Receipt Hog / Shoparoo
These two apps will pay you for just uploading a grocery receipt. The first will bank for you directly, the second is a fundraiser for schools.
Receipt Hog – Earn coins and fee the piggy bank, create a stash of coins and trade them in for cash. Plus, if you use this referral code, we’ll both get extra spins at the Hog Slots when you submit your first receipt: lug50181

Shoparoo – Earn points for the school of your choice and help them with this fundraiser by simply taking pictures of your grocery receipts. Plus, if you use this referral code, we’ll both earn extra donations for your first qualifying receipt: pok41723

Snap (By Groupon) – This app will give you cash back from any store for certain purchases. There are some items that have limits and on the number purchased and others you can purchase and redeem multiple times. There are also some that are restricted for a specific store. I like to check this app when I shop but I don’t often use it, the selection is hit or miss for my needs. For this program you need to accumulate $20 to cash out and it is sent by check to your address. When the deals are good they often go fast. I have seen a bit of change since it first came out but I always check to see if there are good deals.
