How to Save Money on Food and Apparel

How to save money on food you ask? Take the advice from me; I am an avid loyalty program member. If there is a free loyalty program offered by a retailer I frequently shop, I will join! Kroger Plus Publix Savings, been there done that, oh and MyPanera – cashed out at least half a dozen times. The perk to joining a loyalty program is you receive cash back, but it does not have monetary value. Members simply spend the cash earned through points in-store or on fuel.

How you save money on food and apparel you ask? It’s simple, join Ibotta and save on necessary purchases! When I learned about Ibotta and the various cash out options, I was stoked to join! I was also a bit skeptical, I thought there was a catch. Nope, nada, zilch! Ibotta is much better than my loyalty programs. Through the Ibotta app, you can save on everyday purchases counting groceries, apparel, beauty & wellness, restaurants and not just a particular place, and electronics. You can upload your receipt and receive cash back from almost anywhere. Also, there is potential to additional earnings via bonuses.

How to Save Money on Food, the Process

I find the process fairly simple; although, it may consume several minutes of your time. You unlock applicable deals by watching a video or answering a straightforward question. You may be prompted to scan the product barcode, and then capture a snapshot(s) of your receipt. Done! Your earnings pend for a few minutes before you are notified if they’re approved. Usually the earnings are approved if the receipt is legible and the products, total, and date are easily identified.

I find Ibotta a perfect solution for couponers and bargainers. There is no searching through coupon databases and newspapers to find an eligible steal. Ibotta is accessible on your mobile device and often you can save on items from any brand. The best part is the app includes numerous in-store retailers along with online retailers.

At the rate I am collecting, I should save approximately $40.00 per month. I recommend Ibotta to any savvy shopper.
