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...

@Moore Income Sorry to hear about your experience with Get Upside. I haven't had that issue. I signed up for Dosh but haven't used it yet.

@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.

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?

Unwritten rules for giving cash as a present?

Will S. ·
Curious on everyone's thoughts on giving cash as a present. As a kid, I loved getting $10 stuffed in a card from my aunt, uncle or grandparents. But if I received the same from my parents, I would've been very disappointed. This got me thinking about the "rules" surrounding giving/receiving cash. I few I came up with: Cash is a better gift than gift cards , at least up to a certain age (maybe early 20s and below). If you're older than that, receiving cash can come off as patronizing. When...

I don't know about any specific rules for cash, but my family pretty much want gift cards, now, and e-gift cards at that, LoL. So, now I buy little things I would have normally purchased for them throughout the year. They like the little treats as well.

My neighbors, when I was growing up, had big plaster banks. Mark had a gorrilla and Becky had a hippo. Each holiday and birthday they received money from various relatives. Half went into their bank and the other half was theirs to spend. When Mark got to be about seventeen, he asked if I could drill a hole in the bottom of his gorilla. I said I would try. Needless to say. it shattered all to hell! On the upside, Mark was able to buy a new Jeep with his savings! I have no idea what Becky did...

I don't know that I have unwritten rules for giving/receiving cash as presents. I personally don't give cash as presents just because I feel like the other party might take it as impersonal. The exception is like if you order crisp $2 bills from the bank and then gift that to someone, in which case the cash itself is a novel gift. On the flip side, I'm happy to receive cash in any form as a gift. Give it to be crumpled, ugly -- I don't care lol just give me the money. If my friends know me,...

When we gift, it is the form of consumables...a gift card, a bottle of wine or Prosecco, a bag of good coffee, something the person can appreciate and use.

Angie P, I was always taught it was the thought that counts. A lot of people can't afford to give $100 to everyone they may want to give cash as a gift. Everyone has different budgets and limits of what they can give. You may want to reconsider your values this Christmas season.

My wife & I were just discussing how much we'd love to have been given cash or gift cards from my family instead of the physical gifts they gave us. **there's family turmoil that I won't get into here- we're not just being ungrateful or anything, it's complicated as family usually is** For me personally, I'd love any amount of cash as a gift. I've been given $10 gift cards so why not a $10 bill? I sure wouldn't be mad at all. That's $10 in my emergency fund that I didn't have before.

Years ago I tried this system, it got old fast when I found myself borrowing from 1 envelope to another and had a hard time catching up. Then what to do with any leftover money. It seemed very labor intensive and I lost interest in doing budgeting this way, it became tedious and time consuming to write transactions down. This is literally a cash flow system and it may work well for some people. You also have to keep track of where the envelopes are and hope no one can have access to them.

I've used it before for groceries and now after several years, I'm back to using it. It does help in areas where you have flexibility (such as groceries). Shopping loss leaders, sales, coupons and such can keep you under budget and you can use the leftover cash how you see fit. I use a calculator to keep on track as I go through the stores. I've been using it for one month and saved enough money to pay cash for 5 quarts of oil and a filter. It's time for a home oil change. 🙂

PolarMoney Wow! Congrats! You killed it. Unfortunately, I was more like redcatcec and found myself borrowing from one envelope for another, which of course is not the point. I never had any money left over at the end of the month. I liked doing it. I just didn't do it well.

@dboothe - Thank you! 😀 I've found taking a calculator with me and adding up my items provides a good estimate of my total to keep from passing my budget. I also log all my grocery store totals on a recycled envelop and put my receipts inside. This does two things for me. 1) I have another visual of my spending as I go & 2) I have the receipts readily available for recording at home and for referring pricing. I have also delayed some purchases a few weeks if I've had too many items on...

I want to love cash envelopes, and I know it works with saving more and spending less. But I travel a lot for work, so I don’t feel comfortable carrying a ton of cash on me. I even tried to only bring an envelope or two and leave the rest home, yet it’s one more thought to remember where they are. I also don’t want to sit in my car calculating money. I manage my budget on a paper monthly calendar. I check my personal and business accounts online almost daily. It could be better, but it works.

I have been doing this for the past several years. I LOVE it. Its a concrete way for me to maintain control of spending- groceries, eating out, hair/nails/etc, Costco. I also keep cash 'sinking fund' envelopes for kids clothes/school supplies, fun dates, and a weekend with my girl friends; gifts for holidays and birthdays, and vacation. I am MUCH less likely to go over budget when I spend cash. Every dollar I remove from that envelope reminds me of how much I have left, and when it's gone,...

I like this method a lot for everyday expenses, such as groceries, eating out, and gas especially. I also sometimes buy a card at the grocery store and treat it like cash in an envelope. When I was younger and made very little money, this method was a game changer.

Have thought about it but everything is direct deposited and electronically automatically withdrawn from the checking account. I do keep good tabs on what is spent and manage to spend less than what is deposited.

Never used the envelope system. Cash should be in the bank to draw interest. also cash is easily stolen. I have always kept up w/ my bank balances. I also have worked at 2 banks in 2 states and know that banks want their customers to stay w/ a balance in their accounts. They do not want their customers to overdraw their accounts. Make sure your bank knows you by name!

I am pretty frugal. I was born this way. My teenage daughter used to call me "Bargain Bully" and not in a pleasant tone. Now that she's a Mom, she has her bargain bully ways. I tried the cash envelopes way. It was not for me. I think my mistake was carrying ALL the envelopes with me in case I stopped somewhere and bought something. So, what happened is I ended up playing musical envelopes. Oh, the grocery envelope is empty, I'll take it from the gasoline envelope. Oh, the gas envelope is...
