Who wouldn’t love to get some of their hard-earned cash back after they just finished spending it? I know I would! I must admit, I am an avid online shopper. The only time I really shop in stores is when I need groceries or quick pick up items and even then, Walmart grocery pickup is the go-to during busy weeks (by the way if you’ve never used Walmart grocery pickup and it’s available in your area, you can CLICK HERE to get $10 off your first order!).
As a busy mom, Full-time employee, Blogger, and Entrepreneur, I am always looking to save money on items I purchase each week and what better way to save money than to get back some of what you spent. Over the years, I’ve tested out several different cash back apps to see which ones would give me the most bang for my buck. I’ve signed up for multiple and I would suggest you do too, in order to maximize your cash back from each purchase. All of these sites are free to sign up and are available on IOS and Android devices.
Check out the list below for my top 5 app recommendations for cash back, along with some info about each one.

I have earned over $250 in cash back with this site over the last year. I don’t know if that’s an indication that I shop too much or that this site gives great cash back! I’m thinking a little bit of both. Depending on which store you shop, you can get up to 15.0% cash back on your purchase. Cash back amounts increase during the holidays and various other times throughout the year. I’ve only used ebates for online shopping but I’ve read that there are some stores that use ebates so you can get in-store cash back as well. Ebates keeps it old school, so you can only receive your cash back in the form of a check. BONUS ALERT: clicking the link below will give you a free $10 welcome bonus just for signing up.

I have not used this one as much, but I’ve earned $50 over the last year. With Ibotta you add the items you are going to purchase in your queue, shop in-store like you normally do, upload your receipt, and then it will give you the amount of the rebate listed for those items. It’s very simple to use and allows you to plan ahead of time. Cash is deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours. You withdraw the cash via Paypal, Venmo, or several gift card options. They work with many major retailers nationwide. BONUS ALERT: clicking the link below will give you a free $10 welcome bonus just for signing up.

I use this program frequently, as I do most of my grocery shopping at Walmart. I’ve earned $123 in the last year. This service is offered within the Walmart app. This one is similar to Ibotta in that you make your purchases, upload your receipt, then the app will take a few business days to do a price comparison with other stores in the area to see if your items could be found somewhere else for a cheaper price. If the items were found cheaper, Walmart will add the difference to your account as cash back. Keep in mind that with Walmart savings catcher, you do not have the option to transfer the cash back. It can only be used again at Walmart. Smart strategy, Walmart. I see what you did there. BONUS ALERT: If you have Walmart Grocery Pickup available in your area, you can use your savings catcher balance when you order groceries online. Clicking the link below will give you $10 off your first Walmart Grocery pickup order

I’ve been using Shopkick for the last few years and have earned about $75 in gift cards in the last year. This is a simple app as well. You just walk into the store, scan the items you want, purchase them and then earn “kicks” which can be redeemed for gift cards. You can use this with in-store on online purchases. The app gives you step by step instructions on how to get started. BONUS ALERT: Use my promo code to earn your first 250 kicks to get you started. You must complete your first store walk-in or item scan within 7 days of redeeming the code. Promo Code: FREE539374
I’ve only been using rewardable for a few months now, but I love the variety of things you can do to earn points. I’ve earned $10 in cash so far. In addition to earning while you shop, you can do a variety of different tasks to earn points, such as answer surveys, watch videos and photograph items in a store. New offers are uploaded daily and you can cash out via Paypal when you reach $10 in “acorns” (points). BONUS ALERT: Click on the link below to get a 50% cash bonus on your first task when you sign up.

In total, I’ve earned $508 in cash back from these apps in the last 12 months! I hope this post will help you get started on your way to earning cash back for purchases you already make as well.
