Did you know your phone can be used to redeem coupons? Yep! Learn the tricks as to how to get coupons on your phone – without printing a thing!
Of course, most manufacturer’s coupons still do require you to print them, there are some stores ways you can just find the coupon on your phone, saving you time!! I’ve broken this down for you below so you know which coupons can be shown on your phone and which you have to take with you in hard copy.
COUPONS / SAVINGS REDEEMABLE WITHOUT PRINTING
There are some stores/options out there where you do not need to print your coupons (or clip them from the paper) to use them.
You can sign up for these to be sent to your phone. You simply show the code to the cashier and your savings will be applied to your purchase. These are Target store coupons, so you can not stack them with any other Target printable coupon, however, you can combine them with your Target Cartwheel coupons.
This is a an app you can install onto your phone. You simply add the offers you want to redeem to your list. Then, when you shop, you make sure you purchase them. At checkout, you show the barcode on your phone to the cashier and save instantly. If you’ve never used this service before, make sure you read more about How to Use Target Cartwheel.
Some stores allow you to load these manufacturer’s coupons to your store rewards card. Since these are manufacturer’s coupons, you can stack them with any store coupons for more savings. The stores which offer these coupons are limited.
This is a rebate site. You claim the offers (can increase by doing more). Then, you purchase at the store listed (or one of the available stores). Once you make the purchase, take a snapshot of your receipt and then upload it. Nothing to print or even show to the cashier!!! Within a few days the money is waiting in your account!!! Download the Ibotta app to get started.
This is another rebate site. You make the purchase for the item listed and then upload your receipt and you get cash back!
This app is similar to Ibotta. You make the purchase for the items listed and then upload a photo of your receipt. Once you do that, you get the money deposited into your account and can cash out and get that money back! Learn more about Checkout 51 HERE.
This is a great app (which you can also access from a desktop). You shop at Walmart as usual. Then, when you get home, you scan in your receipt. If Walmart finds that the price you paid for any item is lower at a local competing store, they will refund the difference to you — right in your account! Then, you can print that out and use your Walmart Gift card towards your next purchase (or use it online). Read more about Walmart Savings Catcher.
This is another clipless app, which is connected to your store card. You add your card to your account. Then, “clip” the offers you want to redeem. When you use your store’s rewards card you get that amount deposited back into your account. Read more about How To Use SavingStar.
Many stores offer digital coupons which you can download to your card. You will need to check where you shop to find out if this option works or not. Stores such as Walgreens and Dollar General offer these coupons.
This is my favorite app for finding retail and restaurant coupons. Before I pay, I check to see if there is a coupon available for that store and many times, there is!
