Ready for more ways to save money?! This is another rebate app that we love, but can be slower to earn money from. It is called Checkout 51. It is an app for your phone that gives you a certain amount of money for purchasing specific things. Similar to the other apps we have shared, you need to upload a photo of your receipt and then select the items you are claiming, however you do not need to scan the bar codes of the specific items like the other apps.
Once the receipt is processed, it deposits that amount into your account, when you hit $20 you can request a payout via check or PayPal! So while this does take a little longer than some of the others, it is still an easy way to have a forced savings. Particularly if you’re using the funds you have from couponing for something like a college savings, or a vacation, you can watch this accumulate.
Unlike some of the other apps that only pay you for one of a certain item, Checkout 51 allows you to claim multiples (with a limit that varies per item). There are also bonuses for purchasing specific items or multiples that let you get more savings!
Important to note about this app is that the offers change on Wednesdays, which is different than most sales cycles. So if you’re counting on it in your weekly match-ups, just be sure to shop and upload your receipt before the offers change! They are also limited and tend to be claimed fairly quickly, so if it’s a good deal, don’t wait to claim!
We like this as an added bonus for saving money. So far FYM Emily has earned $83.55 and FYM Sherrie has earned $92.25. Do you use Checkout 51? How much have you saved?
