9 Grocery Apps Everyone Should Be Using

i swear i keep discovering a new grocery app every couple months! right now i am up to 9--yep it takes a few minutes to ensure i do all my scanning, checking in, and pic taking at the end of a shopping trip but every little bit adds up and when you are using 9 apps--it can add up quite quickly!

Snap by Groupon: not a big earner, items seem a bit random and uncommon. still worth a look though, especially if you buy magazines.

Ibotta: i am late to this party and i know i only scratch the surface of its earnings potential. many places to earn outside grocery stores like pet stores and even online sites. if you use my referral code, ezl4q, you will earn a bonus $1! there is a lot going on here--i keep it simple but i know i am only scratching the surface of this app's earning potential.

How I Make InboxDollars Work For Me.

i really am not a fan of gpt (get paid to) sites where legitimate surveys and free 30 day trial offers (that require a credit card) all get muddled together.

my one exception is inboxdollars. now i don't do ANY of the trial offers or endless path pseudo-surveys that require a phone number so they can spam you to death. i only do 4 things on the site:

1. click on all reward mail 
-at 2 cents per click these add up quickly and take only seconds.

Cool Work Ideas--Your Next Go-to Site.

this is a blog that i check out multiple times DAILY. and if you are serious about maximizing your online earning potential you should immediately subscribe too!

paul, who runs the site, is a great guy and tells it like it is--the good, the bad and the 'completely not worth your time'. he is always digging around and discovering new focus groups and survey companies--and never hesitates to share his finds.

moreover, he actually started a forum on the site that is more community based (think slickdeals or reddit without the egos or intimidation) where people can post their finds, ask questions or list current focus group screeners. the vibe is so inviting, approachable and merciful! i have found and qualified for  several studies just from the Cool Work Ideas Forum. definitely worth the bookmark to check for nationwide studies daily.

check it out and may the focus group be with you!

Directive Analytics Online Panel

i have been a member here for not very long. surveys are emailed and are pretty infrequent but occasionally you can score a multi-day diary and those pay at least $20.

redemption is a bit archaic--you have to send them an email to request a check and then wait 6-8 wks.--but at least it's straight up cash! there also doesn't seem to be a minimum to request out.

you won't hear much from them but i think they are still worth the registration.

Zebra Pens. Make Your Statement In Writing.

What a fun company---and yes, we are talking pens here. I can't say I have had a pen put a smile on my face before but Zebra has done it. Zebra has a full line of professional writing instruments for home and office and I was able to test out their Z-Grip Ballpoint Pens in the Safari Collection.

YouSay! Survey Review


here is yet another newer survey site to join. while nothing truly differentiates yousay! from all the others, this site does give you 100 pts. for every disqualification which is most definitely on the high side. plus you instantly get a $5 sign up bonus which is already 1/3 of your redemption threshold! they also offer an app for apple and android to take surveys on the go.

when you hit 15,000 pts. you can redeem for a $15 paypal deposit. payment is pretty quick too. here is the link to join:

Join the Purell Loyalty Program and Earn Gift Cards!


i am very late to this party but i just started it and really find it an easy way to earn rewards. i bookmark the site and every morning i quickly hit all the point earning links on the front page and then hit 'earn more' at the top of the page and complete those on the second page. takes 2 minutes and earns me 500 pts. daily. they do cap you out at 5,000 pts a month so you only have to visit the site 10 days out of the month to earn maximum pts.  25,000 pts. earns you a $10 gift card so not the greatest but it's something. there are also purell products for lesser point amounts. i have only been doing this for a couple weeks but i think i will stick with it for now and really enjoy that gift card once earned!
