There are so many ways to save money. Which is a plus. But it can be hard to determine which apps are for you and which apps won’t fit your needs. Which is a bummer.
One of the questions often fielded in the SavEars is, “What do you guys think of _____ app?” Or, it’s popular cousin, “What are you favorite apps for earning?” In the spirit of filling our savings lives with more pluses and less bummers, I’m going on an app investigation! Every two weeks, I’ll be reviewing a new app here, in the App Spotlight. What will I be doing during those two weeks? Trying out the app, of course! I want to make sure that I learn the ins and outs of the app before I report back here to ya’ll.
Our inaugural app is Fetch Rewards!
What is it?: A savings app for grocery shopping.
Submit your grocery receipts for points, which can then be redeemed for gift cards. Points are accrued for every receipt, with bonus points rewarded for specific brands or items. Unlike some grocery apps that require you to specify the item, Fetch Rewards does it for you. Simply scan your receipt, then receive a notification to verify the bonus items. Fetch will have identified and highlighted the items in question on your receipt, so all you have to do is say, “Yes, gimme all them bonus points!”
It’s an incredibly simple process that the app will walk you through once you begin.
Who is it for?: Everyone! This app is for anyone who goes grocery shopping. While some people might get more bonus points because of certain brands purchasing, every receipt earns points. This is especially great for my special diet folks who focus mostly in produce and protein.
Where do I use it?: On your smart phone. Available in the app store.
When do I use it?: Receipts are valid for two weeks from the shopping date.
Why do I use it?: To get rewards for products you are buying anyway. Think of it like cashback on your groceries. Fetch is a quick and easy earner. In two weeks, I’ve cashed out for one gift card, and am halfway to a second. If you’re looking for a fast savings avenue with quick results, this might be the one for you.
Final Verdict: Highly recommended. Use Kristin’s referral code A1RNA and start off with some bonus points already in your account!
Think you’ll give Fetch Rewards a try? Have you already? What is your reaction so far? Tell me all about it in the comments.
