Best Mobile Smartphone Apps for Couponing 2016
I had people request what are the best mobile apps for couponers, so here are my favorites! Please leave a comment with yours too!
Cuckoo for Coupon Deals:
You will NEVER miss a deal with the Cuckoo for Coupon Deals app – download it free on Android or itunes (apple) or Windows phone app store. Plus every week we giveaway a $25 Amazon.com gift card to one app user! And we have new improved printable lists which are easier to click on your mobile browser.
SYWR Kmart/Sears App:
Download the free SYWR app to easily view your surprise points and get Kmart & Sears coupons. It’s also easy to find your SYWR pin, which you will need to use when you checkout and cash in points over $10. Plus you can play sweepstakes right in the app for free, and I win money nearly every week on these!
Ibotta is a FREE Android & iPhone app. I find it easier to navigate than Shopkick and typically use it the most out of all apps. Here’s how to use it:
- First, login to Ibotta and select the deals you are doing. Just click on them with your phone, so easy!
- Perform small tasks, like reading about how Chapstick works, taking 1-question polls, or sharing on FB to get $ added to the value of the coupon
- To redeem your cash back, you will need to take a picture of your receipt and scan the barcode of the product you purchased. Ibotta will credit your account within 24 hours (it usually only takes 24 seconds).
- Once you have earned $5.00 cash back you can choose to transfer it to a Paypal account or donate it to a charity.
Ibotta is offering a FREE $10 bonus when you sign up right now!
Snap by Groupon:
Snap by Groupon is easy. Just snap a picture of your receipt with your smartphone, and boom you can get cash back on your purchases. Snap is very user friendly, although they don’t offer as many deals as Ibotta.
Shopkick is a FREE Android and iPhone app. It gives you access to exclusive deals to stores like Best Buy, Target, Macy’s & Toys ‘R Us. You will get a free $25 restaurant.com gift certificate when you sign up!
Steps to get the gift card:
1. Sign up online first via the Cuckoo landing page
2.You will get a text message to download the app – click this to download it
3. The gift card gets dropped into your account the first time you do a ‘walk-in’ to a partner store. That is, you walk into one of the partner stores with the app open on your phone. Best Buy, Old Navy or Crate and Barrel, or more! When you visit, say Best Buy, you’ll open the app inside at the entrance and wait a few seconds – the points will get credited and so will their gift card! The gift card will appear under the “me” tab and should be pretty instant.
Here’s some coupons at Target on Shopkick right now:
- $1.50 off Archer Farms Snack Trail Mix or Nuts
- $5 off Merona apparel $20+
- $5 off Liz Lange for Target apparel 20+
- $2 off Champion kids tops or bottoms
- $1 off Archer Farms Chips 8 oz +
Checkout51 is mobile or you can use it on your PC. The best part about this is you can use it at ANY grocery store! This gives it a big advantage over Ibotta.
