Best Mobile Smartphone Apps for Couponing 2017

I had people request what are the best mobile apps for couponers, so here are my favorites! Please leave a comment with yours too!


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. Use code dgjvseq when you sign up for FREE $5! 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 $20.00 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!


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 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 we’ve seen Target on Shopkick:

  • $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 +

Checkout 51:

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.

How to use Checkout 51:

  1. Browse store offers, buy at any store
  2. Upload your receipt
  3. Get cash back
  4. Cash out when you reach $20! They will mail you a check

Scan your CVS ExtraCare card at the Coupon Center, usually located at the front of the store, each week to get CVS store coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer coupons for CUCKOO deals! Be sure to scan multiple times to make sure you’re getting all the coupons you’re eligible for until the machine says “Hey Super Scanner! You’ve printed all your coupons”. Some coupons are randomly given, some are based on shopping habits and some coupons are given to everyone! CVS resets the personalized coupons on Monday mornings, so that is usually the best time to scan to get the widest variety of coupons. You can also access your coupons from your CVS account online and the CVS app!

The coupons can only be used once, whether printed from the Coupon Center or your online account or redeemed from the app–they are the same coupon. Read about how you can load them to your ExtraCare card or print them from your computer! You can even extend the expiration date on them!
Each week I will post a list of the coupons you may get as well some deal scenarios for using these great coupons! Leave a comment if you get a coupon that isn’t listed here and if I find a Cuckoo Deal, I’ll post it! Check the comments for deals from other readers!

The Google Play Cuckoo for Coupons App for Android or iTunes Cuckoo for Coupons app or the Windows Phone Cuckoo for Coupons app is the best coupon blog app on the market! *I am biased on this of course 🙂

  1. It’s FREE! Snag it on Google Play (Android) or iTunes app (works on iPads & iPhones) or Windows Store (windows phones)
  2. Create free shopping lists with step-by-step instructions to save money at your favorite stores
  3. Never Miss a Deal or FREEBIE!
    *FREE push notifications of the hottest deals.  This is great for people who don’t have unlimited text messages because it doesn’t use up any texting.
  4. Easily enter weekly for a FREE $25 gift card:
    *Click on the three little lines on the top – this will pull up the Main Menu
    *Click on “Weekly Contest” to enter
    *Winner will be announced on our site + right on the Weekly Contest app every Sunday!
  5. It is much quicker than the old app
  6. The back button works 😉
