Earn Money While You Spend Money.


App Saturday!

This is my first ever App Saturday!  I use a multitude of apps on my phone and Ipad, all for different reasons, and I am always looking for the newest, and best apps for my lifestyle.  Once a week, I will share with you a favorite App of mine!

I am constantly shopping for my family of five.  Three daughters, a husband, and a dog, can get expensive rather quickly!  My husband is hands off when it comes to the budget, but not so when it comes to spending money.  Cash back Apps have become a life saver for me!  I made my husband sign up for a few as well, because if he’s going to be buying useless stuff, we should at least earn some money back on it!

This weeks App is Ibotta!

Available on Android and Ios

I chose Ibotta this week, because Amazon Prime Day is happening this week!  I think most of you already know how much I love Amazon.  Ibotta is currently offering a $20 Amazon gift card if you sign up for Prime through their App!  Already a Prime member?  Not to worry!  Ibotta also has some amazing cash back offers for Amazon right now in several different departments.  This is perfect for those of you who plan on shopping on Prime Day!

So, how does it work?  It is actually really simple!  Download the App onto your smartphone, enter your information, and start saving!


What I really like about Ibotta is you can link up your store loyalty cards!  Here in South Carolina, I grocery shop at Food Lion.  Before heading to the store, while I am sitting down to make my list, I just log into the App and select the offers I want from Food Lion.  The offers are automatically added to my Food Lion Loyalty card.  No need to print coupons, or submit a receipt!  The Ibotta App tracks my purchases on my Food Lion card, and then automatically uploads my rebates!  For stores without loyalty cards, like Target, you just shop like you normally would, and then take a photo of your receipt to submit onto the App!

If you are shopping right on your mobile device, make sure you check into your Ibotta App first.  You just search the store you are shopping at, and see if they are offering any deals!  If they are, just click on the Shop button, and Ibotta will automatically bring you to their website, and keep track of the purchases you make!  The cash back will automatically be deposited into your Ibotta account in 48 hours.

The great part is, 100% of your Ibotta earnings can be transferred right to your PayPal or Venmo account!  No fees are taken off the amount!  You can also choose to have your earnings converted into a gift card.  (The only down side is you have to wait until your account reaches $20 before you can request the funds.  I don’t really see that as much of a down side, but some might think so.)


Ibotta has this really cool feature called Teamwork.  “The bigger your team, the faster you earn,” says the Ibotta site.  When you sign up via Facebook, other friends using Ibotta can join your team!  This allows you to earn Teamwork Bonuses, which can mean more cash back!

Sound good?  You can sign up by clicking Here!

Once you make your first qualified purchase, you will automatically get a $10 welcome bonus, just for using my link!

Get yourself signed up and your Team together, just in time for Amazon Prime day!  Don’t forget to sign up for Amazon Prime through Ibotta, if you aren’t already a Prime member!  It’s a perfect time to sign up, shop some Black Friday worthy deals, get a gift card, and earn cash back!

Happy Shopping!

Prime Wardrobe

 For the last month or so, I have been researching online styling companies like StitchFix, to make my shopping trips, well, easier.  I have three daughters, and a husband in the military, so finding “me time” just to go try on clothing, can be a trial.

Websites like Stitchfix, Wantable, and Trunk Club, are made with that in mind.  Gone, can be the days of searching racks for your size, and trying on clothes in tiny dressing rooms.  This is probably why the retail store market is taking a hit, as the E-commerce world starts booming.  A lot of people prefer to have clothing shipped straight to them, to try on in the comfort of their own home.

Amazon has announced they will be launching a new program called Prime Wardrobe, and while they haven’t officially announced when it will launch, they do seem to have done their homework on their competitors.

According to Amazon, you will be able to pick out three-15 items, (from more than a million pieces of clothing, shoes, and accessories), and have it shipped directly to you, for FREE!  Try it on, keep and buy what you want, and return the rest!  That’s it.

This is going to be a game-changer, at least for me anyway.  I liked the idea of Stitchfix, because after filling out an online profile, a Stylist will set me up with a few pieces they think I would like.  If I want a box sent to me, it’s a $20 styling fee, which goes towards the cost of any item I buy.  The downside is, if I don’t like any of the items, I am out the $20.

Amazon won’t have the Stylist, so no styling fee!  Do you see a few cute tops you like, but not sure they are really your style?  Add them to your box, and try them on!  You have seven days to return them (for free).

There is one slight catch with Amazon; you need be a Prime member to take part in the wardrobe program.  It is $99 for the year, and it is WORTH IT.  You get free 2-day shipping on all prime purchases, access to tons of free movies and shows, and there’s even music streaming!  If you haven’t signed up already, I would jump on board.
