It seems to me that paper grocery coupons are slowly being replaced by coupons apps.
Personally, I really love this new trend from paper grocery coupons to coupon apps as the apps are so simple to use.
With apps there’s no more clipping coupons, no more figuring out how to best store and organize them, and no more forgetting coupons at home. Some of the apps I use don’t even require me to do anything but upload a receipt when I get home.
6 Apps That Will Help You Save Money At The Grocery Store
Ibotta is a rebate app that pays out in gift cards or by Paypal deposit. It is a store exclusive app–meaning it can only be used at certain stores–but the list of stores seems to grow every week.
Since I wrote my step by step guide to Ibotta the app has added even more features, including a new shopping list area. You write your list and they find the rebates for you.
2. Checkout 51
What I like about Checkout 51 is that it isn’t store specific, meaning you can use it wherever you shop–including ALDI. Checkout 51 also has rebates for basic foods like bread, milk, fruits, and veggies that are not brand specific.
If you buy organics, eat gluten free, or purchase a fair amount of natural products, then you are going to like BerryCart. They currently have a $1 cash back on Amazon orders of $50 or more and I have seen them have other Amazon cash back deals from time to time as well (most times it doesn’t matter what you purchase at Amazon in order to get cash back; read full details inside the app).
Fetch Reward offers points when you buy one or more products made by a brand on their list of over 150. Simply scan your receipt and the fetch your reward. Enter my referral code RE9U and receiver 1500 points when you complete one receipt.
Shopkick is a little bit different than a coupon app. Instead of giving you cash back on items, it gives you points for signing into the app when you enter certain stores or for scanning products as you shop and answering questions about them. You can cash out your points for gift cards to places like Target and Starbucks. They have a long list of stores that they work with and I am really excited that they recently added ALDI.
6. Receipt Hog
Receipt Hog pays you in coins for uploading you grocery receipts. It also works for non-grocery stores–although for them you get spins instead of points, but I do tend to win at least a few points each time I spin. There is a list in the app of the different stores you can enter receipts from. They pay in deposits to Paypal or gift cards to Amazon. (use code YECT1667 when signing up for Receipt Hog and start your account with 5 spins)
