2. Walmart Savings Catcher
Some businesses claim to beat their competitors’ prices. Walmart is willing to bet on it.
You can use the Walmart app’s Savings Catcher feature to scan your Walmart receipts. If the app finds local retailers with better deals on the products you bought, you get the price difference on a gift card.
Valid receipts can be scanned within seven days of being printed.
Rather than offering you traditional coupons, Ibotta rewards you with cash for buying items at more than 300 retailers including Walmart, Target and Walgreens.
Here’s how it works: Unlock deals by completing simple tasks such as watching a short video. At the time of this writing, for example, I found a $3 cashback deal on an 18 pack of Bud Light that I can use at dozens of partnering stores.
Then, buy the product and redeem your rebate by using a synced store-loyalty card at the register (you’ll need to connect one to get started) or by snapping a photo of the receipt and uploading it onto the app. Once you reach $20, you can cash out via PayPal or load it onto a gift card.
Ibotta boasts hundreds of 5-star app ratings and claims to have given more than $1 million in cash-back rewards.
