Apps have become so popular and I have found 4 different ones that specifically help save money on groceries. Since groceries can take a huge chunk out of your bank account but it’s a necessary expense, I wanted to search for apps that help keep those expenses down. These 4 apps are ones I have personally tried and had success with, keep in mind though that some only work for iphones and ipads. I also have a post on how to make money while shopping, so be sure to check that out!
Ibotta is one of the more popular apps out there and it works by giving you a rebate for any brand of item you buy. And although some rebates are small, they also have name brand coupons that you can get a bigger rebate from and get more cash back. It’s definitely worth the time, especially if you were going to buy those items anyway.
To get this cash back, all you have to do is scan the item bar code, then take a photo of the receipt, and the money will be deposited into your account within 48 hours. To get started, just click here!
this app works for both iOS and android
This app sends you an alert once you start to approach a store and lets you know what deals or coupons are available. The coupons are automatically on the app so you can give it to the cashier and then they can scan your screen and that’s it! You can also save stores as your personal favorites so you can see a list of current deals and promotions. This one is great because it works for a ton of stores, including retail stores AND it’s connected to ebates so you automatically earn cash back on mobile purchases. To get started, click here!

This app is amazing because it saves you a lot of money by finding the best combinations of sales and coupons and notifies you when your favorite brand goes on sale. You can also print out the coupons that they give you and take them in when you go shopping. To get started click here!

4. Checkout 51
Checkout 51 is a great money saving app for when you go shopping. It will give you rebates and the occasional freebie for the items shown on their app and when purchased, it’s very similar to ibotta. All you have to do is take a photo of your receipt and they’ll give you money back to your account. Once you reach $20 they’ll let you cash out and mail you a check. You can get Checkout 51 here!
