I'm married with 2 sons, living in New York. I started couponing 20+ years ago when my first son was born and I absolutely had to save on diapers and formula. I always took time to cut a coupon, but work from home and don't always have time to do big couponing. With a decrease in work and an increase in "free time" since Covid, I started couponing a lot more. I combine several rebating aps to try to get the best savings.
I start my day with shopkick. Open the ap and I get 1 kick and then I watch 2-3 really short videos for 1 kick each. (250 kicks = $1) You get kicks for just walking into some stores. Scan an item and get kicks (no purchase necessary). If you BUY the item, then the money starts to stack up. I try to stack several offers from Ibotta, Fetch, Shopkick and Swagbuck to really get a good deal. I find it to be very easy, all you have to do it turn on your location and bluetooth before you enter the store. My shopkick code is WIN196772 or use this link https://getsk.co/win196772
Swagbucks - I take the daily poll every morning - which is a multiple choice question. and earn 1 swagbuck. (100 SB = $1). Swagbucks you have to be sure you chose what store you want and whether it is instore or online. You can enter a receipt and earn 2 SB just for entering ANY receipt. This ap also offers TONS of surveys and profile questions to earn SB and videos to watch (some short some long) to earn SB. I do it from my couch. To shop with swagbucks, you add an offer to your list but PLEASE be sure to read the fine print and that you are in the correct store location and shopping in-store. Some offers are for purchasing more than 1 item. For example, 100 points for 1 item, and 500 pts for 2 items. My swagbucks link is: https://www.swagbucks.com/profile/r_82741662
Fetch - I find to be easy, you don't have to select the offers and all you do is scan a receipt. But again, like all other aps, I find that quite often, I have to "correct my receipt" to get the points that I earned. My fetch referral code is AH2XP
