Do you love to shop? Who doesn’t. Then why not get paid to do some shopping? There are all kinds of apps that will pay you to do the shopping you already do. Here are 4 of the best cashback smartphone apps.
Anytime you make a purchase through the BeFrugal app, you can earn a maximum of 30% cash back. There are more than 5,000 retailers you can earn cash back from.
Here’s why this one is my favorite. They have a 125% cash back rate guarantee. If you find another cashback site that has a higher rate than them, they’ll match it an add an additional 25%.
By shopping here, you can stack your savings by using the coupon codes they offer and then receive cashback on top of that. If you find a coupon that doesn’t work, they’ll give you $5 for your troubles.
Payments are made on a monthly basis via PayPal. However, you can also get your money through check or an Amazon gift card.
Ebates may very well be the best known cashback site. New users will get a $10 welcome bonus and can get their payment as soon as they reach $5.
With Ebates, you can earn up to 25% cash back at over 2,000 online stores such as Kohl’s, Macy’s and Walmart. The site also offers the most current promo codes and coupons, allowing you to save money on your purchases. When you want to compare store prices, Ebates is the way to go. All you have to do is scan the product’s barcode, and the app shows you the best prices.
Turn those receipts into rewards by using the Receipt Hog app. The way the app works is simple – you snap a picture of your receipts and earn coins within the app. You can also play games and take surveys to earn more coins. You can then trade those coins for a Paypal payment or an Amazon gift card.
So how does Receipt Hog make any money? They are a market research company which takes the info on the receipts and anonymously sells that data to companies. This data is compiled into market research reports that are valuable to big companies who want to learn more about Americans’ spending habits and tendencies.
If you’re more about shopping at brick-and-mortar stores, you’ll definitely want to use the Shopkick app. There are 3 ways to earn points. You can earn rewards when you walk into a store, then you can earn additional rewards for scanning products and finally, you can earn points again when you make a purchase.
