I’ve always been a coupon clipper. But I really moved my savings up a notch when I started using coupon apps like Ibotta and Checkout 51. I saw a story about a woman who uses them on the news and thought I’d give it a shot.
At first, I found it a little off-putting. They’re essentially collecting data about my shopping habits. But then I thought, so what? Everybody is collecting data about me, through Facebook, buying online, even websites you visit. That’s why ads follow you all over your online universe. If it saves me money, I’m in.
Now, when I use coupons and check Ibotta, I can see I’m saving more. And, I’ve already got nearly $30 in my account to take as a gift card or to put in my pay pal account.
