One way that I save money for travel is by using Rebate Apps, Shopping Portals and Smart Shopping sites.
Here is a list of some of my favorite sites with Referral links that will give you a discount if you sign up. It will also give me a little credit which helps to cover the costs of managing my blog.
I have also provided links to some posts I have written along the way that tell you more about these sites and how to get the most from them.
Rebate App / I mostly use grocery but there are lots of other savings opportunities. Venmo or Paypal payouts anytime you have $20 or more in savings (easy to do). You also have the option to redeem for gift cards if that is your preference.
Rebate App / Grocery only. Easy to use and earn points redeemable for giftcards.
Since I am already scanning my grocery receipts, I go ahead and scan again for Fetch too. You don’t have to do anything, the app does it all and rewards you with points based on your receipt. Once I get to 10,000 points (every 3-5 weeks) I cash out for a Restaurant gift card, a Southwest Airlines gift card or whatever other card would be handy at the time.
It’s so easy, I even downloaded a gift card while driving through the city recently and was able to use it right away.
Rebate App / Primarily online shopping. Easy to use, quarterly payout by checks or PayPal. You can also set your account up at the start to earn American Express Member Rewards instead (Amex cannot be added after initial set up).
Smart Shopping Sites
Online Wharehouse Site / No Annual Fee and free shipping on orders of $50 or more. You also choose 2 free samples each order. Great savings opportunities on big buy staples like toilet paper, paper towels, lunch supplies and coffee. I put in 1 big order every 4-6 weeks to ensure having enough for free shipping.
Just so you know, if you sign up through my Referral links below, we both earn a discount. See full disclosure policy on About Me page.
