As a nearly-broke post-grad, I am always trying to find resources to help me save money. I recently stumbled upon Young Adult Money, a website targeted at young people with a lot of ambition and not a lot of money. An article that jumped out at me was 7 Free Must-Have Tools to Score A Bargain.
In addition to these wonderful tools, I would like to add a few of my own.
Essentially a coupon app, ibotta determines which stores you are in (or are close to you) and shows you what coupons you can get for each. You complete simple tasks to get these coupons, use them, take a picture of your receipt or the product barcode, and get cash in your Paypal account.
Yes, it is that easy. Currently they are even offering a $10 credit if you redeem 5 offers in your first 2 weeks.
Plink is essentially a rewards program where you register your credit card, apply for offers, then use that same card to redeem those offers and earn credit towards cash and rewards such as Amazon gift cards. So all you really have to do is search Plink for places you tend to shop/dine at, register your card with that place, and then use it.
Talk about easy money! Are there any other money-saving apps and programs you use to save (or earn) a buck or two?
