Money Saving Mamas: SavingStar

Another one of our favorite money saving coupon apps is SavingStar! This is another app that gives you cash back for buying specific items. This app tends to sync up with the Sunday coupons every week, so it’s a good way to get some freebies!

First things first, you need to download the app, we’ve connected our bank accounts to it so we can get paid cash directly.  You also need to connect your store cards to the app as that is how it verifies your purchases.  This is a little different from apps like Ibotta, but it means that you don’t have to take the extra step of uploading receipts! The app is available for a wide variety of stores and will show you what’s available near you using your zip code.

Then, you choose the rebates you want, sometimes it’s cash for a specific item, and sometimes it’s a larger amount of cash for spending a certain threshold.  For those types of rebates, you can also participate in learning more about the product to get a “boost” towards your spending – that’s easy, free money!

When you purchase the items, or reach the threshold of particular items, you are automatically credited with the rebate amount.  Once you reach $5, you can cash out in the form of gift cards, Paypal, or even directly into your bank account! It’s an easy was to earn cash back!

Unlike some of the other apps we’ve shared with you, SavingStar can also work from a desktop, so if you don’t like to download apps to your phone- never fear! You can still use this one!  It all adds up, since she started using it about two years ago FYM Emily has saved $311.45 and FYM Sherrie has saved over $100!

What are you waiting for? Get started here!
