Earn Rewards While You Shop With Your Phone!

I have a terrible addiction problem – I can’t help but checkin on my iPhone everywhere I go!  I’m the mayor of so many places that it’s really pretty sad.  One day I left the house without my phone and it was the worst day ever!  I couldn’t checkin anywhere and I just didn’t feel right the whole day.  My husband thinks I’m crazy because checking in doesn’t really get me anything except a collection of badges, but now I’m ready to show him! 

I recently found a new app called Checkpoints that is so much more fun than the apps I’m used to checking in with, and it actually rewards me for doing the things I’m already doing anyway! 

Here’s how it works – you earn points for checking in on the app using your smart phone when you go places, and you get even more points for scanning items with your phone while you’re shopping.  You also get coins when you scan items that you can use to play in-app games where you can win up to 150,000 bonus points.  The best part is that you can redeem your points for great stuff like gift certificates to your favorite stores and restaurants, airline miles and even all the hottest electronics and gadgets!

If you have an iPhone or an Android smart phone then I highly recommend checking out the free Checkpoints app so you too can earn rewards while you shop!  Use the referral code shopperstrategy in the “bonus code” field when you register and you’ll automatically get 150 free bonus points to get started.

Join Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel


Join Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel and you can earn valuable points that are redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toy, gift cards, and more. If they are accepting panelists in your area, you’ll receive a price gun like mine shown above that you use to scan your groceries to earn points. This is a fun activity for kids to do while you’re putting groceries away and the longer you’re a panelist, the better the prizes get.  They now have two different programs so if you’ve been turned down before you might want to try again – click here if you have a landline phone, and click here if you don’t have a landline.


Get $5/$25 Plus Benefits with the Rite Aid Wellness Program

Rite Aid has announced their new Wellness Rewards Program that offers savings and healthy benefits for you and your family, plus you get a coupon for $5 off your next $25 purchase when you enroll!  Some of the benefits include 10% off Rite Aid Brand products every day, rewards points when you shop at Rite Aid, free health screenings, and special member-only offers, discounts and coupons.


Get $5 Off $25 Purchase at Save-A-Lot Six Times!

Did you know that Save-A-Lot has a Smart Shopper Club?  Well when you sign up for Save-A-Lot’s Smart Shopper Club you’ll get a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase, PLUS you’ll earn up to five additional coupons for each friend you tell.  Even though I don’t shop at Save-A-Lot very often, I did sign up for their mailing list because they occasionally send me manufacturer’s coupons that I can use anywhere.  There are also a couple of Publix stores within close range of the Pensacola Save-A-Lot so I’ll be checking to see if they’re considered a competitor, then I could use these qs at either store!


Check Out Domino’s Taste Bud Bounty Program

I love it when companies have specials and promotions on Facebook, but this has to be the strangest one I’ve seen yet.  Domino’s has a new program called “Taste Bud Bounty” where you can earn rewards like free Chocolate Lava Crunch cakes and free pizza when you get people to try the new Domino’s pizza.  Once you place your first bounty on a friend you get the free Lava Crunch cakes with your next order, for capturing your first set of taste buds you get a free pizza when you buy one, after you capture ten taste buds you get a free large one-topping pizza, and the person that captures the most taste buds by June 27th will win free pizza for a whole year.


Reminder: Nielsen HomeScan Taking Applications

The Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel is accepting applications again so hurry over to sign up if you’re interested, they usually close the applications pretty fast.  I applied quite awhile ago and was put on a waiting list until a scanner was available.  I got my scanner in March and have been scanning away since then and so far I’m enjoying it.  It was a little complicated right off the bat since I use so many coupons, but I’ve gotten pretty quick at it doing the scanning.  I actually think its kinda neat being a “Nielsen household” – you don’t get a ton of points for scanning each week, but they also have lots of surveys that earn you points (my fave was a recent one asking for my pick on American Idol) and some really great prizes and rewards.

Cracker Barrel Front Porch Friends

I signed up for Cracker Barrel’s Front Porch Friends rewards program right around the beginning of the year and I just today received my rewards card in the mail so I thought it would be a good time to post a reminder 🙂  I highly recommend signing up if you haven’t already and you have a Cracker Barrel near you.  We stop in for breakfast probably once a month and have already earned rewards for both first quarter (free Uncle Herschel’s breakfast) and second quarter (free 3-pack car air fresheners) this year.  Until now they’ve just been pulling me up by phone number so you can do that until you get your card and you can register online to start qualifying for rewards right away.


Don’t Forget – It’s Mega Swagbucks Friday!


Every Friday is Mega Swagbucks Day where your odds of winning BIG Swagbucks is even higher.  You can win 10, 20, 50 or more than 100 Swagbucks just for searching on any day of the week, but on Mega Swagbucks Day you can possibly win up to 1,000 or even 2,000 Swagbucks just for doing a simple search.  You can redeem your Swagbucks for all sorts of prizes, but my favorite thing to do is trade 450 Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon gift card, then save up the gift cards to buy birthday or Christmas gifts!  So go ahead and sign up at Swagbucks if you haven’t already and get to searching!
