Ways to Save, Earn Points or Cash Back Year Round!

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing with you my favorite ways to save, saving money while shopping doesn't just have to be 1-2 times a year it can be done year round!  

Anyone who follows me on Social Media or on my main blog or knows me I love to save,  in fact I used to be one of those people who could go grocery shopping, end up with free items which I usually donated and would end up paying $20.00 -$30.00 on a $300-$400 bill! 

But with our last two Military PCS's it became a bit of a challenge to keep it up because of so many different policies at different stores,  so I've kind of gotten away from couponing, but plan to get back into it for the new year!

Just because I no longer coupon, doesn't mean I don't save though, I save, I earn points and even get cash back from my purchases, just in a different way.  

I am going to share with you those ways as well as the sites and apps I use to do so.  

The links I'm sharing are referral links and not affiliate links and I've used these sites as well as these apps for years now and so far I've never been spammed, so I don't think they spam, so these are the real deal, meaning I've always earned my points, savings or cash back no hassle and the rare time something was missed they took care if it right away!

My Favorite Websites and Apps that help me save  Year Round:

Ebates Giving a bonus when you sign up, sometimes it's a Cashback bonus or a Gift Card Bonus and this is honestly my overall favorite, I'm always earning Cashback either online or with their App.

Ibotta Is my favorite Grocery one, though they offer  a bunch of other categories, I mostly use this app for Grocery shopping as they even have Cashback for place like the Military Commissary, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, a lot of the Wharehouse stores such as Costco, Sams Club, BJ's  and they offer Cashback for other stores as well, whether your shopping in-store or online, plus items can be on sale or clearance or if  you've used a coupon for them!  So it's great to earn something every shopping trip!

Swagbucks Is a great way to earn points to use towards Giftcards, Giveaways and more, plus there are other ways to earn points and the points add up quickly!

Cartwheel is a Target (Target itself is an actual affiliate link) Cartwheel is a Target only App and it is an awesome way to get coupons and savings for Target.  (*Note I also use this along with Ibotta for my Target Purchase to save even more!)

Other ways to save are your Credit Cards or ATM Cards:

Check with your Bank or even your Credit Card company, because this time of year many cards offer Cashback savings or points that can be redeemed for Gift Cards when you shop specific types of retailer or restaurants, even grocery stores or use certain services.  My bank as well as Discover Card

Other Places to save money is through sites such as Groupon

Hi everyone thank you for stopping by today.  Today I'm sharing some causes that you all know are near and dear to me. 

Though I am a Flexitarian, its still important to me to shop local, sustainable and more humane.

We all know how much the ASPCA does for Dogs and Cats, but did you know that In addition to helping dogs and cats, the ASPCA also focuses on farm animal welfare, working to improve conditions on factory farms and create a more sustainable and healthy food system? 

ASPCA, GRACE Communications Foundation, and the NRDC are working together to help make it easier for consumers when they are shopping.

ASPCA’s Shop With Your Heart initiative is aimed at helping consumers recognize, locate and demand meaningfully welfare-certified meat, eggs and dairy products as well as plant-based alternatives.
