When smart phones first came out the saying was “There is an App for that”. Boy were they right! There is an app or just about everything out there and sometimes multiple that do the same thing. I’m interest on any app that can help me saving money or give me cash back, or free stuff. I have tested out all these money saving apps and know how well they really do work! I’m not talking about the apps you can use to shop online. I’m talking about for everyone who still enjoys going out of the house to shop; these work for you too; not just savings or those who shop online!
The other great thing is you can normally score a free sign up bonus on top of downloading the money saving apps for free. Yes, this is valid in Canada and no this is not a scam. I have been using these for quite some time and have received actual cash back, gift cards, e-gift cards, free groceries and products. Many people don’t realize each receipt can often be used on various apps to double, triple and quadruple your benefits. Let’s face it today, we need to save all the extra we can.
Checkout 51 has been around for a long time and I have received so much money back. I currently have $13.75 in my account and I have received $1065.84 back. When you hit $20 you can request a check. Every Thursday new offers are posted on the app on items you can get cash back on this week! Simply purchase your items, take a picture of your receipt with your phone or scanner at home and upload to the Checkout51 site. That’s how simple. There are often diaper offers, laundry detergent and now much healthier options than before. Now you can save and be healthy.
