I tested money-saving and cashback/rebate apps to save money and earn cash back on groceries and I’m amazed at how much I earned! According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans spend, on average, 11% of our overall income on food. That’s a lot of money so it’s worth looking at some ways to save!
We’ve compiled a list of the best apps for you here to save you time, money and the hassle! Rebate apps are apps that get you cash back on your purchases. So instead of getting money taken off your total before you cash out, you pay and then get reimbursed. It’s easier than it sounds and very lucrative! I wish I had started sooner. If you’re using all these regularly, you can save/earn over 100 dollars each month! We recommend using all of these to maximize the money 😉
