My Favorite Money Saving, Gift Card Earning, and Cash Back Apps!

$$ Saving and Earning Apps

There are other ways and additional ways to save money while you shop!

Money saving and Cash Back Apps were my favorite ways in 2018!

Have you downloaded the Ibotta App yet?

 


I have earned over $3,000 Cash Back with Ibotta! (Plus my husband has the app too so we can both earn the deals!)

If you have not downloaded or used Ibotta yet, download it- and enter THIS referral code MPJXKQ

You will get a Cash Bonus offer just for signing up! Plus- we will be in the same team-there are TEAMWORK bonuses when your team reaches a certain amount of Cash Back offers redeemed, and since there are lots of people on my team, it is pretty easy to get a few levels in every month of Bonus MONEY!!!

If you register your card from Raley’s, Sprouts, and Rite Aid-your offers will be redeemed automatically without submitting a receipt!

Here is how it works-
1. Get the Ibotta App
2. Choose the store you are shopping at
3. Add the offers to your account of what you will be buying
4. After shopping redeem your offers by taking a picture of your receipt and submitting it.
5. Receive your CASH BACK!

At  first it may seem time consuming setting it up-I get that. But really once or twice a week I skim through the offers at the stores I go to and add them to my account-then when I go to the store I redeem my receipts. It gets faster each time. Plus-looking at how I got $944 back so far-I do not feel bad about the time I spent looking through the offers!

I just LOVE Fetch Rewards! It is one of the newer ones, but I have already made a few gift cards from it!

When you go shopping-ANY GROCERY STORE- just take a picture of your receipt. It will give you points when you buy brands that are listed in the app! No scanning of items or anything. If your receipt does not have any participating items-you still get 25 points!

All you need to do is Download the FETCH app! Then if you enter this promo code- AF4FP you will get $2 instantly!!

 

Here is another one of my FAVORITE APPS-SHOPKICK!!

EVERYONE in my family has a Shopkick App!

All you have to do is open your Shopkick app up at the stores that offer “kicks” to walk in.
When your Kicks add up for enough to earn a gift card-you can redeem your kicks!

To get MORE kicks-
Scan items in the store (different for each store)
Link your debit/credit card and receive kicks for shopping at certain stores- I get kicks for shopping at TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshall’s automatically added to my account!

 

I can usually get $5-$10 in gift cards each month with this app pretty easily. If my kids are with me it gives them something to do while they are in the stores. They go around Target, Walmart-or grocery stores and scan the items that are offered. Keeps them occupied-and they get their own Starbucks cards!

 

 

 

 

I usually save mine up until I can get a larger amount-or I need a gift.

I did save mine up for awhile because I knew we were going to Seattle-and I KNEW there would be Starbucks there!

 Here is my husband enjoying his coffee at the Starbucks Reserve! 

He saved up like $10 from Shopkick, and I had $20 so we drank free coffee that weekend because of our Shopkick App!

Join SHOPKICK with this link – 
USE CODE GIFT878432 and we both get points towards FREE gift cards!

FETCH REWARDS

 

CHECKOUT 51
Checkout 51 is pretty simple too! Each Thursday new offers are added (some just reset). You can usually redeem each offer multiple times. This is my favorite app to use at the 99 Cent Only store or Grocery Outlet types of shoppings. They will often have $1 Cash Back on Nabisco Cookies or Crackers. They usually have them for $1, or $1 Back for 2 at these stores-so after the $$ Back, they come to $.50 each!

To get BONUS MONEY for signing up – Go To https://checkout51app.link/6aFDoCCTVQ

 

Receipt Scanning Apps are one of the easiest apps to use. I have all of them and once or twice a week I just go through and snap a picture of each receipt on each app!

Coinout-Snap a picture of your receipt and money is added to your account! That is it!

Receipt Pal– Just snap a picture of your receipt! That is it!

Receipt Hog– Just snap a picture of your receipt. Earn coin4 and redeem for cash or gift cards

Make Your Own Goal Post Decorations For Your Superbowl Party Decor -Easy and Budget-Friendly!

 

I am gearing up for our Superbowl Party and finally decided I was going to make the PVC Pipe Goal Post- I was shocked at how cheap and easy this was to make!!!

I went to Home Depot and bought these items below and Yellow and Black Spray Paint. The yellow spray paint was $3.98 and I grabbed the cheap $1.10 Black spray paint because I thought I might have some already (and the black connector really doesn’t show anyways) 

 1. The 3/4 Inch PVC Pipe 10 foot. 
Cut the pipe in the following sizes- you can cut it in the store if you do not have a cutter of your own.  
4-12 inch pieces
6-6 inchpieces

4-Tee Connectors 3/4 inch $.73 each
4-Elbow Connectors 3/4 ince $.50 each
Yellow Spray Paint $3.98
Black Spray Paint $1.10 (not pictured) Check if you may have some already!

=$12.84 Total for items to make TWO Goal Posts!

 

Spray Paint your pieces and let dry before connecting. There is writing on the side of the PVC pipe and it was hard to completely cover it up with the yellow paint. When I put it together I don’t think it will matter too much. 

Place one Goal Post on each end of your Party Table and fill it with lots of FUN Superbowl Food!

I will be on Studio 40 Live on Wednesday 1/22 With what I am doing for the Superbowl-Tune in at 11 am on Fox!!!

Family Meals Month With Smart & Final + 3 Ways to Make It Easier!

Did you know September is Family Meals month?

To say things are different from last September is an understatement for sure-but we have had MORE opportunities for Family Meals this month than ever before!!!

My  kids are distance learning for school and we have been able to have breakfast, lunch AND dinner together on most days- which is just amazing. My husband has changed to having an office at home as well, so he is able to join us for lunch and breakfast many times also. No matter what negatives there have been- the fact that we get to enjoy meals together is definitely made a difference in our family.

Recently I have shared with you all about Smart & Final-on trip and your are done- well that has definitely been true for us.

Just today I went to Smart & Final and not only bought produce, meat, milk and other groceries, but I bought paper plates, laundry soap, coffee syrup, pet supplies and paper products!!

You all know how much I love finding deals at so many stores, but the convenience of getting everything at one store is a LIFESAVER for me these days.  We are saving money from buying school lunches, sandwich bags, etc-but we have changed the way we have eaten also.  We no longer have to eat and pack the same things everyday!

Here is my son and granddaughter sharing a cheeseburger- the 10 for $10 Burgers at Smart & Final- along with their large packs of buns is a major staple in my house.  Family meals around the table are great, but a school break in the living room is always fun too! Whether it is all 7 of us- or 5, or 9 if we have visitors- we have made it a point to not eat alone if other people are home. Another reason why I love that I can buy bulk items AND individual items at Smart & Final.

 

We can make 10 burgers with cheese and fixings for less than $20 and EVERYONE is happy about it! Add a bag of chips, and/or some fruit and you won’t hear any complaints because they will all be busy eating! This is a once a week meal used to be for dinner- but now it has become a school lunch!

 

Here are some tips for budget friendly ways to have meals as a family-

1.Do not feel like you have to make every meal a big deal. 
It is nice to have a home cooked meal, and have this great family time of cooking together- but there is something about just sitting down, enjoying the meal and not cleaning up for an hour after. PAPER PLATES are a amazing!

Here are a few of our family favorites for easy and quick meals (very filling and budget friendly too)!

2. Do not limit family meals to just dinner!

We start out having breakfast together, but even with the intention of eating together the other meals often one or more of us have something come up. It is MUCH easier for us to have BREAKFAST as a family. Especially right now since we aren’t hurrying to different work and school locations in the mornings.

This big bag of First Street Pancake and Waffle Mix last us all month! We have made pancakes, different shapes and colors of waffles, even waffles and ice cream for dessert! It makes for a fun morning- and I highly recommend the First Street Bacon as well!

 

3. Get everyone involved!

When your kids can get excited and have a say in the meals, they are more excited to eat together. When I make meals that maybe they aren’t excited about they may fight me a little bit or be unpleasant at the table and 10 minutes later we are done. I often tell my kids to pick what their favorite healthier dinners are and they will shop and make  it with me. If they make it then they don’t usually complain about it- or let anyone else!

There are so many benefits to having meals together. If it works to have family meals together take advantage of it! Smart & Final makes it SOOO easy to grab all you need too! For more benefits go to https://www.fmi.org/family-meals-movement/about

Beat the Heat With Smart & Final and You Can Win a $500 Gift Card!!!

Beat the Heat with Smart & Final and WIN $$$$$!!

If you have been outside lately you know how HOT it is!! Not only is it hot here in CA the area that I live in is smoky outside.  

If you are looking for ways to Beat the Heat- Smart & Final has many options for you. 

Here are some great ways we have been Beating this CA heat and also how YOU can win $500 from Smart & Final!

 

Snow Cones
Smart & Final First Street brand has a wonderful variety of syrups to make snow cones with. This is a VERY budget friendly snack/dessert. We bought a snow cone maker for less than $25 and we have been making snow cones almost daily and these syrups really go far- and the only other ingredient you need is ICE!! 

 

Indoor Movie Night 
It is too smoky outside for a movie night here, but we have had some fun coming up with snacks. 

We grabbed some First Street Microwave Popcorn
Peanuts
M&Ms
Pretzels 

We mixed them all together and it was enough for a bowl for everyone and way more fun than just popcorn! We used paper bowls and it was easily made (no cooking except the microwave) and these ingredients lasted us 4 Friday nights so it was enough for the whole month to feed all the kids a fun snack experience!

Smoothies

Smart & Final has large bags of First Street frozen fruit for smoothies! 
Large bags of Strawberries, Blueberries, Pineapple, Mango, Mixed Berries too!
We use either Vanilla Almond Milk, Orange Juice, or Sun Harvest Coconut Water for the liquid!
I always add a handful of spinach because it doesn’t change the flavor and it gets all of us to get some veggies in while we are refreshed by a delicious smoothie!

How are YOU Beating the Heat??? 
This month if you share your Beat the Heat ideas with Smart & Final you can win $500!!

Smart & Final ONE Shopping Trip For ALL- One Trip & That’s It!

 

 

I went into Smart & Final today with my menu for the week and I was able to get EVERYTHING in ONE trip! I got Bulk size of what I needed lots of and individual items too!! No extra trips to any stores this week and I only spent $100!! 

Here is what I bought so that you could see most of my menu items and how you can eat well for LESS. Planning helps- plus with the time I saved not having to go to a box store and a separate grocery store means I have more time to cook this week!

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts were $1.77lb!!!

I grabbed a pack of these, a large bag of Romaine lettuce and a small bag of First Street croutons. Chicken Caesar Salads one night for dinner to keep it light!

I just LOVE (and so does my family) the 10 for $10 Beef Patties! Burgers are a family fave and this takes the work out of a BBQ. I don’t eat the buns and neither does my husband, so I am glad we can buy a small pack of buns so there isn’t any waste. 
The First Street Brand is a real gem- the patties, the buns ,the sliced cheese-all the best prices but tastes great

 

The sale on Steak $5.77 lb (LIMIT 2) but this will feed a few and I will grill the chicken I didn’t use for the salads. If you haven’t tried the First Street Garlic Bread- TRY IT!!!! It is SOOOOOOO good!! 

 

 

 

I bought the 30 pack of eggs and the First Street Bacon for breakfasts this week. They also have the Carb Balance Mission tortillas- which are hard to find, but my Smart & Final is the one for sure place I can always find them!! I make up breakfast burritos with these for the week and we can grab them to go!! 

 

SO these are my main meals for the week. I was also able to grab a few different things for snacks for the kids. I also grabbed a few extra flavors of Snow Cone Syrup for Snow Cones to Beat the Heat this weekend!!!

Make Your Own Fast Food Items at Home and Save Money!

Ok! Who has seen all the Panda Express deals they keep putting out??? This week it is 4 Bowls for $20! Great deal if you were eating there already, but not if you weren’t planning on it. I have overspent on groceries  and going out already this month so -back to creativity.

My kids love Orange Chicken- so at Grocery Outlet I bought this 2 lb. Bag for $3.99. I had this Jasmine Minute Rice on hand ($1.36 at Walmart) so for $6.71 0r $1.67 per person they had Orange Chicken and Rice Bowls (or plates) They enjoyed it too!!!

We didn’t have to leave the house or spend extra money!! I have been trying to duplicate Fast Food items this week to keep them from asking for them and so far they have liked what we tried!!

We also made Beefy Frito Burritos just like Taco Bell- but better!

Ground Beef, Fritos, Shredded Cheese and Tortillas!
I spent $8 and was able to make 10 burritos that were VERY filled! The kids thought it was fun to make their own Taco Bell food and some added LOTS of Fritos so they forgot all about asking to drive-thru for Taco Bell this week now!!!
Also- I bought this Taco Seasoned meat already  and it was perfect!!!
