  • Local Saver is one of my favorite APPs! They offer coupons for restaurants and entertainment deals in your city. It senses where you are. Then it let’s you know what meal deals or fun activity steals are so you to enjoy them!

  • ShopKick is one of my favorite APPs that sends me FREE gift cards just by touching it when I walk into stores, which earns me points, and then I redeem them for gift cards that are sent to me via email (I always snag the free Starbucks cards)!
  • Walmart Savings Catcher App was great but closed earlier this year. ;(

I also use Yaarlo. It literally is only pennies on the dollar, not gonna get rich I know. You just simply take a pic of your receipts and can get gift cards or directly to Pay Pal. Took me about 9 months but hey it was an EASY $50 and paid into my Pap Pal acct in like 36 hours so no complaints. Please use my referral code to sign up MARYSCOT432

Ibotta is my favorite by far! Like Checkout 51 but with so many more coupons. And there are preferred stores where you don't even have to scan your receipt--just give the cashier your linked phone number before paying (like Fareway)
