SavingStar has been growing by leaps and bounds. The program offers unlimited income potential. Here are some of the many ways to make money.
How to Make Money with SavingStar
Grocery eCoupons – SavingStar started out as a grocery app only. Unlike many of the scan-your-receipt opportunities – though this is now an option, too – this app links up to many of your grocery store loyalty cards. This makes earning cash back so simple there is no excuse not to do it. Check the offers. Do your shopping. Get a notification within 3 days or so as to how much money has been added to your account.
And you can now earn at those stores without loyalty cards like Walmart, Safeway and Walgreens. Just scan your receipt as you would do with Checkout51 or similar apps.
Online Shopping Rebates – SavingStar added a Cash Back Mall option earlier this year. If you are familiar with Ebates, the program is almost identical. Visit SavingStar before making an online purchase or install their toolbar for even easier earning. Qualified purchases will get you a cash rebate of usually 3% to 6%.
I don’t see quite the number of merchants available here yet. My Ebates earnings this quarter came from Affliction Clothing, Julep and The Buckle and I don’t see any of them listed at SavingStar at this time. But, I would expect the list to continue to grow. At the time of writing, you could receive 4% back at The Body Shop through Ebates and 8% back through SavingStar. I know many of the savvy shoppers taking advantage of cash back programs are checking both sites for the best rebate when making online purchases.
SavingStar American Express card – This offer just arrived in my inbox over the weekend. Check out the cash back rebates here. And this is in addition to the grocery savings and online rebates you are already receiving. The savings can add up very quickly through this route. The only thing better than a great savings opportunity is stacking on a great savings opportunity!
One thing I love about SavingStar is the minimal waiting period for receiving payment. With Ebates you need to wait for the quarterly pay date to roll around. With SavingStar you can cash out your earnings any time you reach the $5 minimum. And you can take your earnings by direct deposit, PayPal, or donate it to charity. More ways to get your money are coming in November.
