This article, entitled "3 Ways to Get Cash Back on Your Groceries," comes from SavingsAngel.com.
The grocery store is often the place where you and your money are parted. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a little of that cash back?
Here are three ways to put some of your grocery money back into your pocket.
Use an app
There is an app for everything, including grocery savings. These are four great apps that currently let you earn cash back on grocery purchases.
The great thing about these apps is they let you double or even triple dip on your savings. Combine them with manufacturer and store coupons to maximize your money back.
Pay with your rewards credit card
Another way to get cash back on your groceries is to use a rewards credit card. Depending on the card, you could get up to 5 percent cash back or even more with certain promotions.
However, using a cash back credit card comes with one very important caveat: you must pay off the balance every month! Your 5 percent cash back doesn’t do you any good if you’re paying 10 percent interest on the balance.
Look for moneymakers
Finally, you can earn cash back on your groceries by looking for moneymakers, even though those aren’t as easy to find today as they were in the past.
Once upon a time, most grocery stores gave you overage. That meant if you had a $1.00 coupon and bought an item for 90 cents, you would get a 10 cent credit.
Then Extreme Couponing debuted on television, and retailers tightened their coupon policies. Most eliminated overages although you can still find it at some Walmart and Albertson stores. Instead of an overage, most stores will adjust the value of the coupon down to the price of the item you’re purchasing. So your $1.00 coupon becomes a 90 cent coupon.
However, you can find moneymakers even without overage. At SavingsAngel.com, we find most of these moneymaker deals are found at drugstores such as Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens. You get them by combining a sale with a coupon and a reward from the store’s loyalty program.
Earning cash back on your groceries isn’t a dream. By using these three strategies, it can be a reality!
