GET FREE MONEY WITH GROCERIES!
I think of the path to becoming a debt free physical therapist takes a three pronged approach: increase savings, reduce spending, and make more money!
One way to make some extra cash is through grocery shopping. There are numerous phone applications that provide incentives to buy certain items or just to scan those items so that the marketing teams can know what is trending.
These are 2 that Im currently using with decent success and little hassel:
IBOTTA: CASH REBATES
The app is very quick and simple. You can buy the application’s featured products (ie . Snyders pretzels, any size) and you simple use you phone to verify the purchase by scanning the bar code and the receipt.
**The app often offers special incentives for increased money.
**The app also can be used for wine, beer, cider, and spirits
The app has tons of food, health products, beverage, and alcohol rebates on top brands. For example, right now (3/18/2017) the app is offering $5.00 cash back on Absolut Vodka and $3.000 off of 2 Budweiser or bud light 12 packs. You just buy what you were going to buy anyways and with a scan of the bar code get money back.
You can also get free $10 right now when you sign up. No purchase needed!
National Consumers Panel (NCP): CASH, GIFT CARD REBATES
In return for scanning your purchases, you can earn reward points. You can scan as much or as little as you like, but you have to scan something at least once a week to the get the points.
The more points equal more rewards.
The program is tiered based, so the longer you are in the program, the more rewards you get for each scan. You can also earn bonus rewards for scanning frequently, for your birthday and anniversary at NCP, and for doing quick 5 min surveys.
I estimate that I make about $100-200 a year from NCP, and it really only takes 5 minutes once a week to do the surveys and scan my groceries.
In addition, you get member pricing for comupters, vacations, electronics as well as discounts on AT&T wireless plans and accessories.
