Ultimate List of Money-Saving Grocery Apps

We all want to save money on groceries but clipping coupons isn’t for everyone. Thankfully those of us who still want to cut costs without cutting paper, there are several helpful apps available.



1) Ibotta – This one is my personal favorite and the first app I started to use. I first learned about it from seeing it advertised at the checkout of my grocery store. Like most of these, Ibotta is a rebate app. You choose the items you want from your favorite local store and get a rebate once your purchase is verified. This is one of the few that connect to your store’s loyalty cards so there is no need to upload your receipt. Click here to join and receive a $10 welcome bonus.


2) Checkout 51 – This is another one that I use regularly although I only discovered it a few weeks ago so I haven’t cashed out yet. There aren’t as many different items as Ibotta but some of the store selections are different and you can use more than 1 app and sometimes get rebates from both apps on the same item. This one doesn’t connect to most store loyalty cards yet (just Drug Mart so far) but uploading your receipt is easy-peasy and it’s usually approved within a day at the most (at least based on my personal experience.) I had  nice surprise on my birthday they had an offer for a $1 rebate on any cake, candy, cookie, or sweets. Get something at dollar tree and it ends up being free. Click here to download

3) MobiSave – I haven’t used this one much yet. It doesn’t have nearly as many offers as the other apps but it can be used at any store with an itemized receipt and there is no minimum amount for payout. Click here to join.


4)SavingStar – I haven’t used this one quite as much as the others because my loval grocery chain isn’t on their list of stored but there are quite a few major stores to choose from so I have been able to use it once or twice. The app does accept loyalty cards for several stores and uploaded receipts for the other approved stores. There is no minimum for cash out on this one either, which is nice. Click here for android or here for iphone


5) Clip-to-card coupons – This one I don’t have a link for because it varies by store. MAny grocey sores have partnered with ecoupons or something similar to offer “clip-to-card” coupons for their shoppers. These “coupons” are electronic and loaded directly to your loyalty card and come off automatically at checkout. Check the website for your favorite grocery store to see if they offer anything like this.


I hope this helps. I know it has helped me quite a bit over the past few months. If you know of any other apps, feel free to let me know in the comments(referral links welcome 🙂 )
