I use Checkout 51 to get rebates on the things we’re buying anyway. Every week there’s usually at least one thing on the list that we’re going to buy and one receipt I can scan to get the rebate put back into my account. It’s that simple. You check the weekly offers, you buy what’s of interest to you, scan your receipt and get the money put into your account. Once you reach $20 you can cash out.
Comparison Shop – On the Quick
If we’re out shopping for something I will make sure to check the price at local stores, as well as through websites that are having promotions where I can use a coupon code or free shipping. Whether we’re shopping for appliances or kids clothes, the drill is the same and you can usually find me on my phone comparing the prices to make sure we’re getting the best one. For this, I skip the apps and head straight to Google search. It’s more comprehensive when you know what you’re looking for.
Mobile Phone Coupon Screenshots
Jamie doesn’t like to have a lot of the apps that I have on my phone, on his. Since he doesn’t use the Save on Foods coupon app or the Safeway Facebook page or email direct coupons I will take a screen shot of the coupons on my phone and text them to him if he’s stopping on the way home to pick up groceries. Truthfully, most of the coupons that we use now are from the mobile phone. I hope that more companies get on board with mobile coupons in the future. In fact, I even do this with my phone. Pulling up the image is often easier than navigating through the App in the checkout line.
Save on Foods/Shoppers Drug Mart App
These apps help me to plan my shopping trips, create lists and see the current offers that are available without having to browse through the flyer. They’re two of my favorite store apps that are available and I use them both frequently. You can find them both in the App store. You can even get information about your Optimum points account using the Shoppers Drug Mart app, bonus!
