Tech Tuesday: Grocery Apps The New Way To Do Couponing

Do you love couponing? Well I have the next big thing for you! Or are you afraid of couponing or don’t have the time to match up all those sales ads to the coupons out there? But still want to save money? Today for Tech Tuesday I have 3 apps that no matter how you feel about couponing they will help you save some money on your trips to the grocery store (which sometimes seem like are daily at our house! Don’t you hate when you forget that one item?)

Save money with these great grocery apps!


The first app I have for you today- and my personal favorite is Ibotta (say “I” “bought” “ya” and that is how you pronounce it).

With this app you pick your category- Grocery, Electronic, Health & Beauty, ect. The select the store you are at (most rebates are available at all stores). Sometimes in order to unlock the rebate you have to watch a video or read a recipe. Once you scan the bar-code of the product to verify that it is eligible, then you just upload the product receipt after you checkout.

Save money on your next grocery shopping trip with these great apps!

Another great way to earn money with Ibotta is by building a team! On top of earning $5 for each friend who signs up for Ibotta under your team (you get the $5 once they’ve redeemed their first offer), you also get money when your team completes certain bonuses during the month.

I think what I love the most about this app is many times the items don’t have any brand attached to it. So you can get a rebate for ANY brand of eggs or milk.

You can cash out your money at any point to either Pay Pal or Venmo. Or you can also cash out for gift certificates to places like Starbucks, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, etc.

Checkout 51

The 2nd app is very much like Ibotta- its called Checkout 51. But unlike Ibotta, you don’t have the opportunity to build teams. Checkout 51 usually has the same items as Ibotta. Checkout 51 puts up new offers every Thursday at 12am and the rebates expire the following Wednesday at 11:59pm.

The only downside I have found to this one is that most of the rebates are brand specific. Although you can usually count on the milk and yogurt rebate being for any brand.

With Checkout 51, once you reach rebates totaling $20 you can request for them to send you a check.


Snap is fairly new to the grocery app game. It was created by Groupon. It is the same as the other 2 apps, but the offers are good at any store.


Just like Checkout 51, once you hit $20 you can request a check to be sent to you.

Snap also offers you $1 for each friend that you refer and signs up for an account. So another way that you can earn money!

I use all 3 of these apps! Many times the same item will be in all 3 apps! So why not take advantage of it and earn the rebate 3 times! 🙂 While I haven’t been faithful recently using them, its one of my goals to get back into the habit of using them more in 2015!

Do you have a favorite grocery app or rebate app that you love? Let me know below!

Love & Happiness!
