Earn Free Cash with Grocery Apps

Here is a list of my favorite grocery apps. I will add more as I discover new ways to earn free cash.

Save money with Groupon

Get cash back with these free grocery apps!


Walmart Savings Catcher

If you do a bunch of your grocery shopping at Walmart you HAVE to get this app!

They recently updated Walmart Savings Catcher however. And now here’s how it works:

You make your purchases using the Walmart Pay app (works like a debit card) and then it price matches all of your local competing stores and refunds you the difference in the form of a Walmart cash.

Only there’s a catch. You will get an electronic receipt instead of a paper one. Boo!

So here are some tips on how to use your Walmart electronic receipts on other grocery receipt apps.

  • Share your receipt from Savings Catcher and send to your photos. Then pull up the photo on your computer and scan it with the other grocery apps.
  • Or you can email the receipt to yourself, print it out, and scan it with the other apps.

It’s not ideal, but it’s better than nothing. Especially if you do the majority of your shopping on Walmart.

Receipt Pal

Very easy to use. You just take a photo of your entire receipt and you get points that you can redeem for gift cards. The more points you earn, the higher the value of the reward.

Receipt Hog

This is another app that requires you to take a photo of your receipt from your phone. It also has a bonus game where you can play slots for even more points. They pay you in the form of Paypal or an Amazon gift card.

Checkout 51

This is a site that will send you an actual check when your account balance reaches $20. You just pick and choose items from their featured list and then take a pic of your receipt.

Saving Star 

Saving Star is a money-saving and cash payout app. You register your store card or you can save your receipt. You scan your items, then scan your receipt and get cash back.

They also have “freebies” and healthy offers every week.


This extremely popular shopping app has a variety of items that earn you cash back. You can even get cash back on staples like milk or produce.

You can even join my team to earn even more money together. If you sign up now through my link, you will get an instant $5!

Fetch Rewards

This a newer site which just scans your grocery receipts and gives you points that you can use to get gift cards from several different local stores and online retailers.

Enter code YY0DD at the sign up screen and you’ll get 2000 fetch points ($2.00) when you complete one receipt. Their points are pretty generous too, I might add!

You just need a cell phone number to sign in on Coinout. You can scan ANY receipt (gas, groceries, food) and just get money for them.

Granted, you will just get a few pennies with each scan, but over time you could build up a nice chunk of change.

They also offer larger rewards for featured offers.


I never go shopping online without Ebates. And neither should you!

Simply download the app on your computer or phone and open it before you start doing any online shopping and activate the Ebates cash back app.

Get cash back from popular stores like Walmart, Best Buy, CVS, Old Navy, and many others.

I’ve already made almost $300 this year from Ebates.

Money Saving Sites 

For when you want to venture out and about, use these sites to get the best deals before you hit the pavement!

Groupon & Living Social

Both Groupon and Living Social are apps that connects local businesses to consumers by offering killer deals!

I use both of them quite often when I’m looking for things to do around town.

They are a great way to save money on restaurants, salons, and concerts. And the savings are huge!

I always check them first to get season passes for local museums and places to take my family. They also offer promotion codes and cash back.

And you can even combine your Ebates account to save even more money on Groupon and Living Social! 

My best scores on these sites so far are an annual pass for a family of 4 for the AZ Science center (normally $22 a person) for just $35 for the entire year

And recently I found a great deal on a haircut and style for only $14.99 (a $60 value) but after Groupon bucks, I ended up only spending $3.99! Both apps are definitely worth checking out.
