Money-saving apps were the first thing I looked into when I bought my own place and really started “adulting”. I knew I needed to maximize my money by saving every way I could.
I’ve been using these apps for over 2 years now and they save me at least $600 a year. That’s money I wouldn’t have if I didn’t use them and now cover Christmas with the rewards!
But you don’t have to use them for Christmas, most of them let you cash out after a small amount.
Save money without even trying! Okay, maybe a little bit of trying by downloading and getting started.
Honey applies every coupon it can find on something you’re looking at purchasing to get you the best deal. It even checks around for prices to make sure you’re getting the best thing for your money.
This is a must-have with Christmas gifts! Put them on a list and Honey will keep track of them and notify you when the price drops. What a win!

Saves you from printing out coupons and forgetting them.
You scroll through and collect the coupons you want money back on. Then when you’re ready to collect the coupon money, redeem your receipts and cash out after $20.

Paribus works similarly to Earny’s money-saving app only it’s online. Sign up online and it finds out if stores owe you a refund.
It tracks your receipts and stores’ policies and determines if you could be owed money. If they find savings either through a price drop or late deliveries you get the difference.
It’s also 100% free and you get to keep 100% of the savings!

Similar to Ibotta, but they only have a certain amount of coupons to give out.
So you have to collect them early to receive money back. Cash-out after $20 is collected.
5. Coupons.com App
It allows you to collect coupons in several ways. You can print coupons, collect like Ibotta, or have them saved to the business card (like Kroger or Dollar General, where the money is taken off at the register)
But after redeeming receipts through app, the money is applied directly through PayPal, no minimum!
Ebates is now Rakuten. This money saving extension allows you to receive a percentage of your purchase back just by shopping through their site.
