It might seriously be one of the easiest ways to save money. I have four savings apps installed on my phone. Each one is pretty easy to use and operates on the same basic idea. Buy an item. Log into your app. If the item you bought has a coupon, select that item. Scan your receipt. Have your receipt approved. Wait until you have accumulated the appropriate amount of money in your account, then cash that money out. Each one is a bit different in that they might have different dollar amounts before you can cash out or different ways to get you the money. Ibotta and Saving Star require that you shop at specific stores. Savings Star does say that while they will not prohibit you from using a paper coupon and an app based coupon on the same item, that does not reflect the intent of most manufacturers. Several of the apps have ways for you to earn extra money by reading informational articles or by referring friends. I don't really base my shopping lists off of the coupons that are available on the apps. But I do peruse each one prior to shopping. Aside from being an easy way to coupon without actually cutting any coupons out, many of the apps offer coupons for produce and milk, which are things I often do not get in the Sunday coupon inserts. I like it a lot better than the Target couponing app, Cartwheel which requires you to show the cashier the coupon on your phone. I like that I can scan my receipt at my convenience, also known as "when my children are not around."
