Cent Saving Saturday: Online Help, Part 2 (iBotta and Checkout 51)

Cent Saving Saturday

Recently, one of my coworkers clued me in to two online rebate sites/apps:  iBotta and Checkout 51.

I really like them both.  With iBotta, you unlock the rebates before shopping (by viewing a recipe, learning a fact, or watching a video).  Then, you purchase the items that you unlock, scan the barcode, take a picture of your receipt, and iBotta drops the money in your iBotta account.  If several people go in together to form a team, you earn bonuses faster.  In November, I received $10 back in rebates plus $10 for the team goal.  That turned into $20 in Amazon gift cards.  There are many gift cards to redeem (or you can redeem the rebates into your Pay Pal account).  You have to earn at least $10 to “cash out.”

Checkout 51 operates on much the same principle–except you have to earn $20 before cashing out– and they send you a check.  Checkout 51 often gives you a choice of rebates you would like to add to your list, and their deals renew each Thursday.  Maybe you can use one of the two to cash in on these great deals:
