The following is a post from our sponsor, SavingStar.
'Tis the season to be generous, right? Well, now you can treat yourself to a little something without spending an extra dime! Here are three programs that actually pay you (in cash or rewards) for shopping for your friends and family:
SavingStar: With just a few clicks, you can save BIG on your groceries and online shopping! Once you’ve signed up for free, you can start saving instantly. No coupon clipping is required to earn cash buying products at your favorite supermarkets and drugstores. And save at hundreds of online retailers including Groupon, Lands' End, Travelocity, and more through SavingStar's Cashback Mall. You can even earn up to 10 percent cash back when you shop online at select stores!
Plink: Link your credit or debit card to your Plink account to earn points when you shop at participating stores like Kmart or Staples. Then redeem points for cash and gift cards. It’s SO easy!
Shopkick: This shopping app helps you discover all the best products at stores near you while saving money, too! Use the app to scope out items at stores like Target, Macy's, Best Buy, Old Navy, American Eagle, JCPenney, Sports Authority, and Crate & Barrel. Then when you actually go shopping, you’ll earn points just for walking in the door -- and you’ll get even more if you scan items and make purchases. Then you can turn those points into gift cards to use at your favorite stores!
What would YOU buy with your reward?
