FREE Turkey Dogs

I got a FREE package of Jennie-O Turkey dogs from Target today.  Target sells them for $0.99 a pack and Ibotta has a $1.00 rebate right now.  So, actually, I didn't just get them for free, I earned a penny by buying them!

If you're not familiar with Ibotta, it's an app which provides rebates on typical grocery items, movie tickets, clothing, baby and household items.  While making my shopping list I review what rebates are available and if there are things I need I do the little tasks to "earn" the rebate.  Sometimes you have to watch a super short video, or answer a question to be eligible for the rebate.  It's always easy to do and super quick.  Then, I shop and once home I set aside my Ibotta items.  When you go to redeem, the app prompts you to scan the barcodes on your items to verify that they are the correct items and then you snap a picture of the receipt and viola! money back.  The really great thing is that you can use manufacturer coupons at the store and then come home and still use Ibotta.  Sometimes, all the stars align and there will be an offer on Ibotta, I'll have a manufacturer coupon, a Target coupon AND an offer on Target Cartwheel.  I'm not a super couponer by any stretch of the imagination but I'm willing to do things that are rather easy to do to save a little money.  Right now I have almost $25.00 in my account which I can either get as cash put into my Paypal account, or, use it to buy gift cards to places like Starbucks, Whole Foods or Regal Movie Theaters.

Other shopping apps I use are Checkout51 and Shopmium, both of which give rebates on grocery items by either submitting a picture of your receipt and sometimes also scanning barcodes.

Happy shopping!
