Save a Bundle with the New RetailMeNot App

RetailMeNot iPhone App

You all know that I’m a huge fan of RetailMeNot and I start every online purchase with a visit to their website to find any available promotions or coupon codes, well now I’m thrilled to announce that they have a new mobile app that will help you Save When You Want, Where You Want!™

Not only is RetailMeNot the largest online coupon site in the United States, they also provide the ability to search for location based coupons while you’re out shopping. Download the latest version of the RetailMeNot iPhone app here and you can use your phone to find the hottest deals at popular stores, plus it even identifies nearby store locations where you can go to redeem in-store coupons.

When you use the RetailMeNot iPhone app you can even save coupons to your phone for later use, and the app will notify you when they’re about to expire so you’ll never miss out on using your favorites! Another one of the really cool new features is the geo-fence ability, that’s where there is a virtual perimeter around a physical store location so when you enter a geo-fenced area like a shopping mall, you’ll be immediately alerted about other nearby specials.

In other exciting news, RetailMeNot is giving away an iPhone 5 every day through Monday, November 26th. Click here to enter! So go enter to win, download the app, then head out to grab some great savings!

Earn Bonus Box Tops and Cash with Jingit

Shopping with the Jingit app

My kids really enjoy collecting Box Tops for Education for their school and they make sure that their grandparents, aunt and other family members are all involved as well. A couple times a year the PTO treats the grade level that brings in the most Box Tops to an in-school party and they always look forward to that so don’t EVER let them catch you accidentally throwing a Box Top away. Ours is a small country school without many resources, and like all schools these days, operates on a very limited budget. That makes the Box Tops for Education program even more appreciated because those funds are used for things like playground equipment, supplies and other things that are usually first to be cut from the budget.

When I learned about the Jingit app and how it helps you earn extra Box Tops for the school of your choice, I was thrilled to try it out and share it with you! Jingit is a tech startup company that connects brands like General Mills with consumers and gives them a way to pay you back just for paying attention to them. All you have to do is sign up for a free account, designate the school you want to receive the Box Tops, and download the app to your Android device, iPhone or iPad.

Once you get to the store you check in with the app and you’ll see a list of participating items that you can scan for bonus Box Tops.  I went shopping at Walmart and used the app while in the store to earn extra Box Tops on things I was buying anyway. All you do is scan a product from the list in the app, then answer a survey question afterward and the Box Tops are automatically credited to your account. Simply tap the product in the list, point your camera at the barcode, and the app will scan the product and credit your account.

I picked up several Totino’s Party Pizzas while in the store and was stoked to see that these packages all had extra Box Tops on them in addition to the bonus Box Tops that I got just for scanning them. When I checked into the app later on from home I was surprised to see that it was actually encouraging me to scan those products again from home for even more rewards! Win – win – win!

I was so excited to be earning extra Box Tops for the kids’ school that I didn’t realize right away I was also earning rewards for myself! You can earn up to $10 in cash rewards each week, up to $15 a week if you refer some friends, just for watching a few videos, scanning products and answering simple questions. Get a Jingit Visa debit card to spend your cash rewards or you can use the funds to buy your favorite music in iTunes. I scanned some products – Honey Nut Cheerios, Go-Gurt, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks and Totino’s Party Pizzas – watched a couple videos and I already have a balance of $4.10! Head on over to get your free Jingit account so you can earn some extra cash for yourself and Box Tops for your local school.
