FREE Apps to Help You Save Money in 2016

There's nothing I love more than shopping - except a really good deal or saving money. It might seem a little counterintuitive, but I love saving as much as I love spending. And if I'm going to be shopping, I want the best deal possible. 

That's why I use these four apps to earn free money and save on things I will buy anyway. 

1. Ebates 

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

For my online shopping (which is the majority of my shopping) I use Ebates. I've found this the easiest way to actually make money while shopping online. How does it work? Just sign-up for an account and check for deals. If you download the Ebates extension for your browser, deals will automatically pop-up when you're on rebate sites! Signup for a free account here

2. Ibotta 

Ibotta is similar to Ebates in that you make money when you shop. I really like this app for grocery shopping because you can earn money for things you will buy anyway like tomatoes, carrots, peppers. 

Here's how the app works: 

1. Download the App
Download the Ibotta app, available on iOS and Android. The app is required to submit a receipt.
2. Unlock Rebates
Before you go shopping, unlock cash rewards on great products by completing simple tasks.

3. Go Shopping
Buy the products you’ve unlocked at any supported store.

4. Verify Your Purchases
Scan your product barcodes, then submit a photo of your receipt.

5. Get Cash
You’ll have the cash deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours.

You can even set up loyalty cards with Ibotta! 

RetailMeNot is GREAT for online coupons. Instead of printing them, or searching for them online while you're in the store try this app. If you're going to be shopping anyway, why not save 20%?

GasBuddy is an app I've been using for a couple of years now. Since I'm a little obsessive at times about saving money where I can, this one can really add up. It's a free app that shows you the cheapest gas near you. This one is great for traveling because if you can see where you should stop for the best possible gas price! 

These are my four FAVORITE free apps that I have found to be the most useful in saving money or earning free money.  Which ones do you use?
