As a stay at home mom, I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for  ways to save money, or make a few extra dollars on the side. Here you will find some simple ways I have been able to make an extra buck or two.


If you love shopping online then Ebates is for you! Ebates will pay you cash back every time you shop as well as provide you with the best coupons and online deals. Each store offers a different cash back percentage. Just look at the percentage next to the store name on the site to see how much savings you will earn. You can even earn cash back from shopping on sites such as Amazon and Ebay! Even better, Ebates has one of the best referral programs. In addition to the $10 welcome bonus, earn $50 after 2 referrals!



Ibotta is a free mobile coupon and cash back shopping app. With Ibotta, shoppers have the opportunity to earn cash back by  purchasing select products and then scanning the receipt. You may earn additional cash by fulfilling bonuses alone or as part of a “team”. I earned almost $30 in two weeks after using this app, just by doing my regular grocery shopping and scanning my receipts.



Walmart has its own cash back program for consumers. After shopping, simply scan your receipt into the Walmart app using the savings catcher, or enter your TC# (found at the bottom of all Walmart receipts) and it will check local competitors for lower prices.  If an advertised lower price is found on en eligible item, your account will be credited the difference which may be redeemed through a Walmart Rewards eGift Card or a Bluebird by American Express Card.




Paribus tracks your confirmation emails and watches for price changes so you don’t have to.  When they detect potential savings, we let you know and help you get money back.




MobiSave is another money saving grocery app. No need to change where you shop. Any store that provides an itemized receipt is covered. Get paid quickly. Never wait more than 24 hours for your savings. It really is that fast and simple. My cash back was sitting in my PayPal account and I didn’t even know it!


With Checkout 51, you may browse your offers and buy products at any store. After uploading your receipt they will confirm your purchase and credit your account. When your account balance reaches $20, you can cash out and Checkout 51 will  mail you a check.

*Keep checking back for new ways to earn extra cash.  I’ll update this list as often as I can.  Do you know of another way to earn cash back to add to this list? If so, let me know. If I haven’t already signed up for the program, I’ll use the referral code or link of the first person who contacts me.
