How To Save and Earn Money When Shopping

December 23, 2018

Shopping can be expensive, and I’m always hunting down deals and coupons to save some money. Here are some websites and apps that offer discounts, deals, and even cash back when you shop!

This website is for college students who have a valid college email address with which they can register. Once you register, you will be offered exclusive discounts and deals from a variety of different fashion, beauty, food, and technology brands. Some of these brands include Asos, Boohoo, Urban Outfitters, NastyGal, Adidas, Lyft, and Uber.      



This website is similar to UniDays, as it offers discounts for various brands. There is also a StudentBeans app that you can download on your phone for easy access to these deals.



Ibotta is an app that can be found in the Apple app store as well as the Google Play store. This app gives you money back by saving your receipts. Once you have earned $20 back, you’ll be able to redeem it or use it to buy gift cards.

Retailmenot is a website that provides you with discount codes and deals for any online store. In addition, they also have app that allows you to scan your coupons at actual stores.



Ebates is a browser extension that you can download. Once it's installed, it will tell you what percentage of cash back you will receive from your total purchase when you shop online. Once you earn $5 back, you will have the option of receiving a check or transferring it to your PayPal account.



Honey is also another browser extension that you can easily install. Honey automatically applies coupons when you check out. One great feature they have is the droplist on Amazon. When you’re on Amazon, you will see a droplist on an item that you’re in interested in, and it will let you know when to buy the item to get the lowest price.
