Top 6 Cashback Apps
We’re all looking for ways to save, and cash back apps can easily help you put a little change back in your pocket. These apps are a way to earn cash rewards (cash, check, gift cards, or rewards points) after you make a purchase. Choosing a cash back app depends on what type of shopping you’re doing, and the cash rewards that app offers. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to help get you started.
Ibotta is perfect for frequent grocery store shoppers. They pair with a lot of major chains including Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, and Publix. Once you’re done shopping, simply upload a photo of your receipt to the app. Once you’ve earned $20, you can cash out via Venmo, Paypal, or redeem for a gift card to places like Target.
RetailMeNot is one of the original cash back apps that first began as a website. It’s great for finding coupons and activating online offers. If you forget to check for coupons before you go to the store, you can always upload your receipt later and search for discounts.
GetUoside offers cash back rewards on grocery stores, restaurants, and at gas stations. They’ve replaced uploading receipts with a new check-in that includes a saved credit card feature.
Coupons.com is a great way to keep your coupons organized digitally. Once your store loyalty card is linked in the app, discounts are automatically applied.
Earn alerts you when an item you’ve purchased drops in price. It also checks to see if you’re eligible for a refund. Another popular feature is the Watch List. Earny will monitor the items on your list and alert you when a price has dropped.
Rakuten, formally known as Ebates, helps you locate stores that offer cash back and coupons. When you install Rakuten’s browser extension, it checks for cash back availability when shopping online at popular stores like Sephora, Nike, and Kohl’s. This extension also alerts you when an item you’re shopping for is available at a better price.
To get started, download a few of your top choices to see which ones you get the most use from. Another way to get easy cash back is with our Visa Platinum Rewards Credit Card. Our rewards program allows you to redeem your points for statement credit, cash back, travel, gift cards, merchandize, theme park tickets, and so much more.
Currently, Launch is offering our Visa Platinum Credit Card holders a chance to win $500 on us* during the holiday shopping season. When you spend $100 or more with your Launch CU Visa Platinum Credit Card from Nov 1 through Nov 30, you could win one of two $500 Gift Cards.
