In today's edition of money making apps we're looking at Fetch Rewards, another receipt submission app. One of the reasons that this app made my list of keeps is that it is easy to use- no scrolling through lists of specials and cash back offer lists to check off... just upload the receipt and it automatically searches for qualifying purchases on your receipt. Even if none are found you still get a 25 point reward, every time.
Not long ago you would get 25 points minimum for grocery receipts and 5 for each additional receipt but recently they updated the app so that you get 25 points minimum for each receipt, making it much faster to reach rewards thresholds. I liked this app before they did that due to its ease of use but now its one that I never fail to load my receipts into each weekend.
The average cash back I get from this app is only $5 each month but since I am not spending much time or effort to upload my receipts I am ok with $60 a year. I can purchase a nice dinner out for Mother's Day for my mom or any number of other budget line items with that extra $60. I will say that if I purchased more brand name items and/or shelf stable items then I would make more cash back but as its just me in my household (and two small puppers) my trips aren't all that large... and since I am gluten free I typically fill my cart with produce and proteins there isn't always something each week that I get extra bonus points for. When I am planning a party or treat myself to some chips or etc. I tend to get bonus points for that purchase, sometimes rather large ones even. If your family is larger or you shop in different ways that I do then the cash back could potentially go up substantially!
The website shows how to use the app with some cute graphics:
Fetch Rewards pays out via gift cards to a slew of different stores- everything from Auto Zone to Whole Foods. I typically go with Amazon as I buy my household goods through them and have been spending money redecorating my office so needed everything from pens to a phone cord as well as the fun things like décor. Their gift cards are claimed in the app and then emailed to you. One of my previously redeemed Amazon gift cards are below to show you what the emails look like.
This is the first one that I have a referral link for. If you use a referral link then you receive bonus points upon sign up, helping you get to your first gift card all that much faster. The current reward for using my referral link is a bonus 2,000 points on your account. If you are interested in using my code it is: HE3JP
Until next time,
