I'll start with the new ones I've found since my 2017 post and end with the ones I posted about in 2017.
1) Ibotta : Ibotta is an app that gives cash back for buying specific products. A lot of times they are items that are new to the market, but you'll also see some classic brands like General Mills cereal, Bud Light beer, Tyson Chicken, etc. They even offer various cash back for fresh or non-branded items like chicken, pasta sauce or fresh apples. You can find those by searching for "any" and those that aren't brand or item specific will pop up. You can scroll/search through the app before you shop to see whats included, claim those offers and shop based on that. However, if you forget to do that in advance or while shopping (which is me most of the time), I check the app after I shop and search for the items I bought and if an offer exists, I claim it and take a picture of my receipt and get the cash back in my account within 48 hours. I usually end up with at least ONE item, usually an any brand/any item rebate. I find the app really beneficial when stocking up on beer/wine/liquor (yes all 3 are included!) for parties as they always have a large selection of those items. Ibotta also can be used for some online shopping as well but is more popularly used for grocery and convenience stores. Once you accumulate at least $20 cash back, you can request a check or payment via PayPal. Sign up from my link and get up to $20 back after you redeem your first brand name item.

This is equivalent to $24.42 in gift cards since December 2018
3) Get Upside: Anyone else HATE buying gas? I know I do! This app makes it sting a little less. Get Upside is an app that gives you cash back on our gas. Only select gas stations participate and since the app is still relatively new, it mostly only has participating gas stations in the Southeast United States but I know they are trying to grow it nationwide, so if your state is not currently participating, check back often. Lucky for me, the gas station closest to my house and the one I visit the most frequently, a Shell, participates. All you need to do is open up the app and CLAIM the gas station you will be using BEFORE you start pumping and then upload your receipt after you are done. The app will show you which gas stations are participating in your area, so if you are traveling you can always pull up the app along the way. It's that easy! You can redeem your cash back for gift cards or cash (via Paypal or a check). It says some convenience stores participate as well, however I am yet to see any in my area (Orlando, FL). Use my code, DENISE9432 to get a BONUS 15 cents back per gallon on your first use. Once you sign up and share your code, you'll continue to get 1 cent back on all your referrals purchases as well.
