Shopkick: Earn Cashback When you Visit Stores and Shop!

I’ve never talked about Shopkick before, and it’s a pretty easy program.

Shopkick is a rebate app, similar to Ibotta, where you earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards (there are over 70 gift card options) when you buy specific products.

But what makes Shopkick different is that you can also earn points by scanning barcodes in-store, and by opening the app while you are in the store and checking in through the Shopkick app. It definitely makes walking through the mall a little more lucrative. Walk-ins/Check-ins will net you between 10-75 points, and scanning product UPC’s will net you between 10-50 points. Each store and product is different. With over 40 stores, you can earn on almost any shopping trip.

I use Shopkick to check-in, and if I’m in Target by myself and not in a rush, I’ll scan a few product UPCs for extra points. I earn about $10 in Shopkick Gift Cards a month, just by doing my usual shopping and checking into stores.

And as you can see by the screenshots of the app, there are offers for products that you may actually buy. Nothing weird or hard to find.

If you want to check Shopkick out, you can sign up with code JOY087662 & we’ll both get a bonus! The Shopkick app is available for both Android and IOS phones.

Earn Cashback on Gasoline Purchases with GetUpside

I’ve been hearing a lot about GetUpside on the radio lately. I downloaded the app last year and used it a few times, but I dove back into it this morning.

What I really like about it is that you can earn cashback on buying gas- WHICH IS NEVER ON SALE.

GetUpside is a free cashback app that users can earn up to 25¢/gallon cash back on gas.  It’s super easy to use:

Use New “Check-In” and skip the receipt. Just Check In to redeem your offer at this station and any other locations that have a Blue Badge. No need to upload the receipt. GetUpside uses the last 4 digits of your cards from recent purchases to verify your purchase. Tap the “Check-In” button when the user is at the business and select which card they’re using – no receipt pic needed.

GetUpside users earn up to 25¢/gallon cash back on gas, up to 45% cashback at restaurants, and up to 30% cashback at grocery stores.

GetUpside also has a great referral program. Users can earn a 15¢/gal bonus when they refer friends and give friends and family a 15¢/gal bonus. Referrers also earn 1¢/gal every time their referee gets gas using GetUpside.

And it gets better: Use Promo Code AFF20 to increase the sign-up bonus to 20¢/gal, which is stackable with your first offer for up to $0.45/gal in savings on your first receipt! Heck Yeah!

So now that you know the deets, are you ready to sign up for GetUpside? Click here to get started.

MyPoints: Turn receipts into cash with Magic Receipts

unnamed.gif

I’ve been a member of MyPoints for 10 years! There are all sorts of ways to earn money including these “Magic Receipt” offers!

These deals are only good at select stores, so check on each offer before adding it to ensure that you can redeem it at a store near you.  Here is an example of one of the offers:

Here is how MyPoints Magic Receipts works:

In-Store Receipts

  1. Find the deals you like, click “Add To List“, and then purchase those specific items at participating stores.

  2. After purchase, click submit the receipt from “My List” and follow the instructions.

  3. Be sure to read the fine print, paying special attention to product restrictions and expiration dates.

Each offer has its own terms, including at which stores the offer is valid. While this won’t replace my use of any of my other apps, it is a nice addition.

Earn Cashback on Gasoline Purchases with GetUpside

I learned about GetUpside this morning and it’s a pretty cool program.

One of the hardest things to save money on is gasoline. It’s not like gas goes on sale, and if you live in California you know that the price of gas is out of control!

GetUpside is a free cash back app that users can earn up to 25¢/gallon cash back on gas.  It’s super easy to use:

Use New “Check-In” and skip the receipt. Just Check In to redeem your offer at this station and any other locations that have a Blue Badge. No need to upload the receipt. GetUpside uses the last 4 digits of your cards from recent purchases to verify your purchase. Tap the “Check-In” button when the user is at the business and select which card they’re using – no receipt pic needed.

GetUpside users earn up to 25¢/gallon cash back on gas, up to 45% cash back at restaurants and up to 30% cash back at grocery stores.

GetUpside also has a great referral program. Users can earn a 15¢/gal bonus when they refer friends and give friends and family a 15¢/gal bonus. Referrers also earn 1¢/gal every time their referee gets gas using GetUpside.

NEW on Dosh: Starbucks!

Woo Hoo! I received this offer in my inbox yesterday and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all!

Right now, Starbucks is on Dosh! Get 5% cash back every time you get your fave hot or cold drinks, food, coffee beans, merch, and more.

Pro Tip: You can also earn cash back when you use your Dosh-connected card in the Starbucks app. Thats a double dip: Earn Starbucks stars/points on purchases and earn Dosh Cash-back when you load your Starbucks app! Woo Hoo!

Offers on Dosh can vary by user, so you may have a slightly different offer or other offers.

New To Dosh? You can learn all about it here. You can earn cashback shopping in-store or online. I primarily earn cash back on Dosh these days from Office Depot, and Round table Pizza. We used our Dosh linked card to buy Big Kid a new bed last year and scored 2% cash back, in addition to other sales/deals. Dosh is a great app to double dip!

(The Dosh Link is my personal link, if you sign up and complete an offer, I may earn a small comission. This money helps me run the site and offer contests and giveaways. You can see my Disclosure  info here.)

New Deals from Checkout 51!

 

unnamedCheckout 51 is one of my favorite cashback shopping apps! Most of the deals/cashback rebates are not store specific, so I can save at stores that don’t accept coupons, like Grocery Outlet and 99 Cents Only.  You can also stack with store sales and discounts.

This week on Checkout 51, there is a great selection of products, including some yummy frozen desserts to beat the heat.
