Sharing is caring!

We love saving and earning money almost as much as we love to spend it! These apps will help you save a little money or earn a little money- every bit helps, right?

And don’t worry- we’ve only shared apps we actually use ourselves, so we know that these are legit.

If you sign up using our referral codes, we’ll both make a welcome bonus. Thanks for sharing the love!


Ibotta has been around for a few years, but so many people have not heard of it! First, choose a store on the app and unlock offers from the grocery categories (Example: .50 off Pringles brand chips). After shopping, upload your receipt and scan the item barcodes. You’ll get rebates for the items! You can cash out for gift cards or deposit directly into PayPal or Venmo once you earn back a minimum of $20.

You can now also connect a store card and skip the scanning altogether- you’ll still need to unlock your desired rebates, but this saves a ton of time! Also, try mobile shopping through Ibotta.

Ibotta is one of our favorite apps to save money. Between weekly shopping trips and the bonus offers, we have saved hundreds of dollars in the two years of using the app.

If you use our referral code modxycq, you’ll get a welcome bonus after you redeem your first qualifying offer (a.k.a no “Any Brand Items”).

Checkout 51

Checkout 51 is very similar to Ibotta. Unlock rebates and scan your receipts to earn rebates. The main difference is you’ll earn a check instead, and it takes longer for most people to earn the $20 needed to request the check. Also, the check takes a few weeks sometimes to arrive. We definitely view this app as more of a change jar, but because the app is so easy to use, it’s still worth the effort.

Do you walk? Sleep? Eat? Weigh yourself? Link a fitness tracker to your Achievement account and then literally rack up points by updating info on your tracker. The more active you are, the more points you’ll get per day. You can also participate in short surveys and read health articles for extra points. Redeem 10,000 points for $10, which can go right into PayPal.

Most people earn about $20-$30 a year, which isn’t much, but you don’t have to do much, either.
