I, personally, like Receipt Hog. They take almost every receipt and turn it into points which eventually turn into cash. It also is fun because there is a slot machine and prize drawings.

Like @Jeff said you could try Paribus. I believe it did work on an Amazon purchase I made, but that was a while ago. I am not sure if it would work retroactively though.

Rebate apps for purchases you already made?

Wen Dee ·
I am curious are there and apps that give you rebates for something you already purchased? I know Ibotta you select the item first, then submit receipt. Ex: I purchased items on Amazon last week, without using Ibotta or Ebates....Is there anyway to still get rebates for these purchases? Thanks

Apps to earn rewards and cash

Ana ·
Ebates - earn money when you shop via stores on Ebates. Ibotta is a great way to earn money while you shop. Check out Fetch Rewards. Turn any grocery receipt into savings! Shopkick - Earn points toward a free gift card while you shop in stores or online - Get Upside - earn money back when you get gas for your car. I can privately send you the links to the apps with my referral codes in which you will earn a bonus. Just let me know. Are there any others that I should check out?

I just tried out Get Upside the other day. It is not available in my area but I was traveling so I figured I would give it a shot. But every time I tried to upload my receipt it would fail, and since there is a time limit, I wasn't able to get my reward. Not a great first time experience. I just started using a newly launched app that gives cashback for purchases with many big retailers and in the future they are introducing more local ones as well as a cryptocurrency that you will also...

@Ana the cashback is not that much honestly and you have to have $20 before you cash out but most cashback sites have a minimum. I have had the most success by referring other people.

A lot of the cash back apps don't seem to require you go to the app before shopping. You just link your credit card, forget about it, and when you happen to be at that store, use the credit card. I have Dosh. I got $5 for signing up and just got 2% on a Sam's Club purchase. There aren't that many offers in my area, and some offers aren't available from my local franchisee (Dunkin Donuts, for example, is listed, but my local Dunkin isn't listed as a local merchant.) Swagbucks has some shop...

We did some work with Shopkick (I work at The Penny Hoarder) and I couldn't believe how loyal their users are -- they have a serious fan base! People who use it absolutely love Shopkick, so much that they sometimes spot each other at stores. Something interesting I didn't expect was that a number of the people we interviewed use the app not only to earn/save money (by earning kicks and redeeming for gift cards) but also to lose weight, because the app motivates them to walk a lot.

Checkout 51, Savingstar You can do surveys and earn gift cards too. I have good luck on Pinecone and MyPoints and Microsoft rewards(I do their daily searches and quizzes. It only takes a few minutes in the morning and I earn enough points for a $10 gift card every month).

Have you heard of imoney? You earn cash, it adds up fast and you’re not doing surveys or scanning or seeds or anything like that. You’re doing simple tasks involving the Apple App Store. It is for iPhone users only and you can make extra for referrals on top of what you’re already making for doing the tasks. This is probably my favorite one and I’ve done a LOT of apps!

I use an app called SPENT Money, which is a cashback app. It gives 1 percent back at Whole Foods and also gives money back for Uber. And it does the data entry for you. It pays out via PayPal.

I personally use Acorns but it is one of my least favorite investment apps mainly because I have seen the least returns using this app. It is nice to get the $5 bonus though which allows you to test out the app. I have been able to pile up a nice little stash of cash in there since I do invest on a weekly basis still. Other investment apps/platforms I use (in no particular order) include: - Wisebanyan - Stash Invest - Robinhood - Finhabits - M1 Finance - Webull - Swell - Rich Uncles there...

From what I've read, online only banks are safe as long as they are FDIC insured. It's just like how you use the app or website for your regular bank - just without that brick-and-mortar overhead. One thing to remember though: *personal* online security is still up to you. (aka maybe don't use your banking apps when you're on the free coffee shop WiFi.) The bank will take security measures on its end so you can use the app or website safely, but you still need to practice good online habits.

Thank you Lisa! I know some of the on-line banks, like Ally, have been around a while, I'm wondering if there is a way to check out their performance. I assume if they advertise FDIC insured that's a first step.

@mintjulep For what it's worth, I've heard such great things about Ally from lots of credible sources. I just opened an account with them and the experience has been excellent so far. They offer paper checks as an account feature -- which I couldn't find at any of the other online banks. (I have had to work with a lot of contractors, handymen and landscapers in the past year that still only take checks.)

I just opened an account with Empower and will be putting some money in there shortly. FDIC insured is something you can usually count on. I personally enjoy trying out new things and am usually one of the first to test these new things. There is a always some measure of risk involved but as long as the company is reputable and isn't promoting anything that I would deem to be sketchy, I will usually at least give them a shot. As mentioned above, it really just depends on you and weather you...

I definitely think it is worth it. I don't put all my eggs in one basket anyway, even when it comes to just a checking account, so why not get as much interest as is available. I'd love your input on the various online banks as you try them @Moore Income! You've listed some others that I've not been aware of. Thank you!

@Moore Income how do you strategize what money goes into what account, and how do you stay organized? I recently consolidated some of my cash and closed some extraneous accounts, mostly for simplicity's sake. How do you maximize your 6 checking accounts?

@Former Member Good question. I personally am just testing most of them to see howh they work and such and I usually just start with a set amount. I have moved money between a couple due to a better interest rate but I haven't really added much to the accounts besides the initial deposits. I am starting to add more to My Haven account since they have a 2% interest rate (up to 4% if you refer people) they also allow me to connect all my other accounts to manage my money in one place.

I'm nervous about the solidity of some online-only banks, but there is the carrot of fabulous interest rates. I noticed the app discussed recently at Penny Hoarder, the Empower app, is FDIC insured up to $250,000. I'm interested in getting as much interest as possible on reserve cash, as anyone, but am I being overcautious here? How much confidence should we have in these online-only banks?

Re: Savings Account Apps?

I have been using The Ally banking/savings app for a few months and have been quite happy. I have a checking and a savings account. The savings account currently earns 2.2% and has gone up twice since opening the account. I use the checking account to save for known upcoming expenses and the savings I am using for emergency fund. Also, there are no fees.
