Groceries, toiletries, bills…there are things you probably spend money on every week. But just because you’re spending doesn’t mean you’re getting the best rate or saving as much as you could be. This is where savings and rewards programs come in. These can help you save on those unavoidable purchases.
Earn cashback on purchases at popular stores.
Before you make any online purchases, check out Rakuten. (You may know it better by its former name, Ebates.) Rakuten provides cashback rewards and special discounts when you shop at stores you already like. Earn at stores like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Kohls, and thousands of others. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can earn $10 just for making a $25 purchase.
Pare down your grocery bill.
Groceries aren’t just necessary…they’re also expensive. For this reason, it’s a good idea to pay attention to your local grocery store’s weekly circulars. Clip coupons, take note of sales, and try to plan your weekly meals around these deals. You can also take this a step further by checking out Savings.com’s “grocery” section, which features tons of discounts and promo codes.
Get cashback from your debit card, too.
If you use debit or credit cards often, it makes sense to get one that will benefit you just from using it! Look for debit and credit cards that offer cashback and make the most of your purchases!
Get gift cards at a discount.
Did you know that you can buy gift cards at a discount? The best thing about gift cards is that they don’t always have to be a gift. Check sites like Raise and Cardpool for discounted gift cards and use those next time you make purchases at your favorite grocery or retail store.
Earn money just for giving your opinion.
Good news if you love giving your opinion or taking surveys. Sites like Swagbucks and Inbox Dollars reward you for simple tasks like completing surveys and using coupons. You can even earn points for things you already do, like searching the internet and watching videos.
Do you earn cash back in a way that’s not on this list? Let us know in the comments!
