The Snap App -- it's better than ibotta


All right, ya'll, here's how this awesome app works (taken directly from their website):

How it works

Snap by Groupon gives you cash back on everyday grocery purchases - no matter where you shop. It's like having grocery coupons on your mobile phone, but way better!
Our offers work at any store, and you never have to hassle with clipping or redeeming paper coupons. Just follow these simple steps:
1) Download the Snap app for iPhone or Android, or use the Snap website
2) Browse our offers before you shop
3) Purchase promoted products at any store
4) Snap a photo of your receipt and get cash in your account!
Earn $20 in cash back and we'll send you a check. It's that simple. Plus, you can earn even more cash by sharing Snap with friends. Visit us at snap.groupon.com for more information. Happy Snapping!

Shutterfly + Kellogg's = !


 We've all heard of Shutterfly. And we've all certainly heard of Kellogg's. But have you ever used them in the same sentence? 

I have.


As a member of the Kellogg's Family Rewards program, not only have I racked up over 17,000 points by entering codes into their system from my Froot Loops boxes (I eat a lot of Froot Loops), but I also receive dozens of valuable emails. Just the other day, I got an email from Kellogg's Family Rewards with a special code. I entered it into their system, as I do with all their codes, but this time I got $20 off at Shutterfly for doing so. They tell you up front the value of the code, but I can't tell you how many of these I've received over the last year. And because you can use it like a gift card (no minimum spending threshold to meet), I've scored free magnets, prints, luggage tags, calendars, and so much more. Speaking of calendars, I got one of those from Kellogg's Family Rewards, too (as well as a code for a free 8x8 hardcover photo book, free prints, address labels and more). Just prior to Christmas I received a code for a free wall calendar from Shutterfly -- just pay shipping. That calendar, filled with photos from our most recent trip to Ireland, was one of my husband's favorite Christmas gifts. And it was free.

So what are you waiting for? Get yourself a Shutterfly account and sign up for Kellogg's Family Rewards. You'll get to earn points on all those fruit snacks, cereals and granola bars, and rack up a ton of savings by reading their emails (printable coupons included!).

OH. And Shutterfly offers free gifts over the weekend on a regular basis. Address labels, magnets, stickers, I've gotten them all. In fact, over the last year (and I checked), I've made 11 purchases through Shutterfly. And I've received:

1 free wall calendar
4 free magnet
~ 521 free prints
4 free sets of address labels
1 free notepad
1 free stationery set (10 cards, 10 envelopes)
1 free 8x8 hardcover photo book
1 free mug

YES. All of that was FREE, sans shipping and handling.

That's between coupon codes for free product and $20 certificates from Kellogg's. And that's just over the last year. You can also keep an eye on sites like RetailMeNot.com for additional Kellogg's Family Rewards codes.

So what are you waiting for?! SIGN UP!

Swagbucks

Dear Krazy Coupon Lady,

Thank you! 

Love,

Faithfully Frugal



I love the Krazy Coupon Lady (in case that wasn't already obvious). She recently introduced readers to Swagbucks, and I'm anxious to see how it works. 

So far, I've discovered that it's a mindless, easy way to earn a little extra as you browse the web, watch YouTube videos, and shop. You can also opt in to earn points by taking quick polls, surveys and more. When you collect enough Swagbucks, you can trade them in for gift cards! Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, Starbucks... you name it. Just for signing up, creating a profile, and answering some questions, I have already earned 78 Swagbucks toward my first reward.

Check it out here and let me know what you think!

Once you sign up, be sure Swagbucks is your default search engine. Here's how to make that happen:


Firefox:
  1. Download the browser extension (http://www.swagbucks.com/extension) then click on the Swagbucks icon on the top right.
  2. Click on the Magnifying glass icon on the left-hand side.
  3. Click on Change default search engine.
Chrome:
  1. Go to the Customize & settings menu on the top right of the browser (3 horizontal lines).
  2. Click on Settings menu item. The 4th option should be Search.
  3. Click on Manage search engines.
  4. Under the Other Search Engines area, scroll down to Swagbucks (alphabetical order).
  5. Click on Make Default (when you hover over Swagbucks.com on the list) and then click Done to close the window.
