Most of us have a routine of going grocery shopping once a week, twice a month, monthly or on an as-needed basis.  Food prices continue to go up and so if you are like me, I like to visit grocery stores that have weekly deals and bargains to help me save more money off my grocery bill.  Not only is this helpful but there are some other practical things that you can do to save and even get paid when you go grocery shopping.

You may be wondering how this works and if it will cost you anything in order to take advantage of this.  The answer is no.  It is completely free and will never cost you any money to use and will work even better if you have their apps installed on your mobile device.  I have been using these apps for quite awhile and I have even made over $1,000 so far with just one app alone!  You can do the same by giving some of these sites and apps a try below.

This post may contain affiliate links but I only recommend sites that I have personally researched, trust or use.


One of my favorite apps because they have several partners and companies that they work with to help you save money not just on your groceries alone but also when you shop at your favorite home improvement store, go to the movies, dine out for a meal and so much more.  This app pays in cash.  You will even get a $10 welcome bonus when you join!

In order to get cash back from Ibotta, you will need to look over your receipt and select the items that you purchased on the Ibotta app.  Once you have done so, you will scan your entire receipt and wait for your purchase to be confirmed by Ibotta.  This takes less than 24 hours and you can even request your cash the same day!


I also enjoy this app because you are allowed to shop at any store to receive cash back from your grocery purchases.  You also take a photo of your receipt and upload to MobiSave to get your cash back in less than 24 hours.  The app is available to download on Google Play or the App Store.  You are also not penalized by not being active with this app as with similar companies.  Start earning with MobiSave today!

Checkout 51

Another company that will give you cash for uploading your grocery receipts with or without a mobile device.  You can actually log into your Checkout 51 account from your computer, take a photo of your receipt from your webcam, save it to a file on your computer and get credit when you upload it to Checkout 51.  Super Easy and fun.  Checkout 51 also gives away $500 every week to a member that uploads a grocery receipt that has spent $60 or more on their grocery shopping trip!  You can request a check in the mail when you have at least $20 in your account balance.

Saving Star

This company has several digital coupons that you can use and redeem at your favorite grocery stores without ever having to clip or print anything.  It is completely free and will help you to save money and get cash back when you shop.  The money will be reflected in your Saving Star account.  You can scan your grocery receipts through their website or mobile apps that are available to download on the App Store or Google Play.

Nielsen Consumer Panel

Berry Cart

If you love to purchase organic, non GMO’s , Gluten free, Vegan and other healthy food items then you will like this app.  Berry Cart will reward and pay you for selecting and purchasing healthy choices at the grocery store. This will help you to save more on these more expensive items.  You can redeem your earnings through your PayPal account or select a gift card of your liking.  They have several gift cards to choose from.

Walmart Savings Catcher

If you, like millions of us do shop at Walmart on a regular basis, please keep your receipts whether you buy groceries, electronics, etc.  Walmart has adopted a platform for you to get cash back to spend at any Walmart store.  It you purchased something on your receipt at Walmart and they find it at a cheaper price at a competitor’s store the money will be credited back to you.  All you have to do is type in the number found at the bottom of your Walmart receipt and enter into your Walmart Savings Catcher account online or through their mobile app to have the cash deposited on a Walmart gift card in 3-5 days.  I assume Walmart is doing this to get you to remain a shopper with them and not go elsewhere.  Either way, you as the consumer will benefit from this.
