If you love to use coupons, or wish you could use coupons but don’t have the time to gather, clip, and organize coupons, there’s an alternative way for you to be able to save money by getting cash back on groceries you buy. Thanks to a few apps you can download on your smartphone or tablet, you could simply just scan the receipt with the items that are featured that week, and you’ll easily get cash back on them. Once you’ve reached a certain amount, you can choose to cash it out, and they will send you a cheque or send you the amount through PayPal.
There are a number of apps available out there, but a lot of them only cater to those in the United States. If you live in Canada, here’s a list of those apps you can use:
- Checkout 51
- Snap by Groupon
- PC Plus – For this one, you would need to get a (free) PC Plus card from any participating store (No Frills, Loblaws, etc).
What’s even better is you could still use coupons AND use these apps to pile on the savings!
Do you use any of these apps? Do you know of other similar apps that are available in Canada? Let me know in the comments!
