5 Best Cash Back Apps for Online Shopping

Cashback is indeed a marketing strategy to attract customers to online shopping portals. A trend began by credit card companies is now being implemented by almost all online shopping platforms including mobile shopping apps.

But is cashback just a way to make you spend more money? Not entirely. Some apps are worth using. In this post, I have shared some shopping apps that can help you make remarkable cash savings this year.


Here Are the 5 Best Cashback Apps for Online Shopping

1) Receipt Hog

With Receipt Hog, you can expect to earn cash backs, bonuses, and Amazon gift cards by uploading a receipt from any store in the nation. It doesn’t matter if you bought some over-the-counter medication from the local drug store or you purchased a new couch for the living room. As long as the retailer provides you receipts, you can turn them into cash. You can redeem the coins you collect into Amazon Gift cards, magazines or cash via PayPal.

2) Swagbucks

Swagbucks is one of the most popular cashback apps on both Android and iOS platforms. Surely, there has to be a reason why platforms like BuzzFeed, TheHuffingtonPost, and ABC are raving about it. To earn cashback from Swagbucks, you don’t have to shop at a particular store. Swagbucks offers you cashback for almost all purchases you make online.

3) Checkout 51

Checkout 51 is a Toronto-based fin-tech startup lead by three dedicated entrepreneurs. Along with cashback, on Checkout 51 mobile app, you can expect to get daily deals and offers. To get started, download the app on your device, create a free account, browse and buy through the thousand of items category-wise, upload the receipt and earn cashback.

4) Rakuten

Rakuten(formerly known as Ebates) is a Japanese firm that offers 40 percent cashback over its 2,500 stores. With Rakuten, you can expect cashback, exciting deals, and discounts on both online and offline shopping. They have partnered up with popular retail stores all over the world. 

When you buy an item from one of the retail stores listed under Rakuten, they pay Rakuten a commission and Rakuten, in turn, shares it with you. It’s a win-win for all three parties.

5) Shopkick

With Shop kicks, you can earn kicks(their reward points) even for entering into the store. You don’t have to buy anything. The kicks can be redeemed via PayPal or gift cards. Although, it is recommended to use this app on every purchase you make. Why waste the golden money-making opportunity? Until 2019, Shopkick users have earned more than $85 million in free gift cards.


Instead of doing your shopping directly via online/offline stores, pull out your phone and use one of the above-mentioned apps to do your shopping. Not only will you get 10-40 percent of the money you spend back in your pocket but also you can expect exciting deals for the future. You don’t have to invest anything, all apps are free to download and offer a free user account.
