For awhile now, I’ve wanted to compile a post for the “newbies” to Coupon Geek to round-up some of the money-saving and money-earning programs that you can sign-up for. I mention them quite often as free codes or offers pop-up for them but I’ve wanted a place to direct everyone to in case they missed any. Well, this is that post. I’ll add more to them as time goes on but here are a few to start with:
1) SavingStar – They have a weekly healthy offer every Tuesday for 20% off some produce/healthy item, etc. On Fridays, they offer a freebie. The program is free to join. You simply add offers (like an eCoupon) to your account when one interests you. Some stores you can just scan your store loyalty card while others you’ll need to take a photo of your receipt and upload it via the SavingStar App. You can cashout at $5 for either a bank deposit, PayPal credit or Amazon Gift Card. The freebies in themselves can easily add up to the $5 threshold over time. They also offer a lot of other savings weekly on various products that you probably already buy.
2) Checkout51 – Every Thursday, new offers are added into your account. They have been great at having offers for things like produce, yogurt, bread, milk, etc. You simply buy the items you see in your offer queue and then submit a picture of your receipt from that store. It’s free to join. You can cashout at $20. Since they have great offers each week on basic items, it doesn’t take long to add up.
3) Ibotta – Each week, new offer possibilities are loaded. You will have to do a small task to earn the chance to grab the offer; things such as reading a fact about a product, watching a very short video clip, posting to Facebook, taking a poll, etc. Once you buy the items, you scan the bar code and then take a photo of your receipt. You can cashout for a PayPal credit or for gift cards, such as Starbucks, Regal Cinemas, iTunes, etc. I’ve been grabbing the gift card options and saving them as holiday gifts.
1) Swagbucks – You can do your searches through them and earn “Swagbucks” which you can later turn in for gift cards or other prizes. Ex: $5 Amazon Gift Card for 450 points. There are other ways to earn the points through polls, finding free codes, etc.
2) Kellogg’s Family Rewards – You earn points for buying Kellogg’s products and/or for finding free codes. They’ve been frequently offering 100 Point codes lately and it doesn’t take long to add-up. You can turn the points in for money-saving coupons and other prizes.
3) Pampers Gifts to Grow – You earn points for buying Pampers products and for finding free codes. It seems like there’s a weekly free code lately and even if you don’t buy their products, these can add up over time. I’ve traded mine in for Target and Starbucks gift cards in the past.
4) Disney Movie Rewards – You earn points for buying Disney DVDs and such and for finding free codes. They often have times such as summer and Christmas where they’ll have a daily free code for several weeks. You can turn your points in for Disney products, gift cards, etc. I’ve cashed mine in for DVDS, Starbucks Gift Card, Disney Gift Card, Free Movie Outings, etc. in the past.
5) Recyclebank – You earn points by recycling and learning about how to be more “green.” You can save up your points for free gift cards, coupon savings, etc. I’ve cashed mine in for Old Navy and Target gift cards in the past along with several money-saving coupons!
