I was looking recently at ways to keep my grocery costs down. I’ve watched Extreme Couponing but we don’t have as many coupons here as they do in the States. (If anyone does have any good websites for UK coupons please let me know!). However I did come across this app called Shopmium which is a cashback app for products bought at the main supermarket chains eg Sainsburys, Tesco, Asda etc.
Since joining I’ve got a Cadburys advent calendar, go ahead yoghurt breaks and Bahlsen Choco Leibniz biscuits for free! (I love that word). I’ve also got money off Jude’s Ice Creams and a few other things that I wouldn’t have tried otherwise as they cost too much. It’s a pretty cool app and although I don’t use it too often, it’s nice when something comes along to brighten your day a little.
Here’s a screenshot from the app just to show you what it looks like. The items on offer are laid out clearly and you need to click in to them to see what the discount is. There are lots of different products on the app, from alcohol to cleaning products so there’s usually something on there to try.
The next screen shows you whether the product is free or if it’s just discounted. It also tells you what stores the offer is available from, and a handy little map too. The ‘Check product eligibility’ brings up your camera so whilst you’re in store you can check that you’ve picked up the right product.
To receive the offer you need to buy the product and keep hold of your receipt. Simply click the ‘request my cashback’ to take a photo of your receipt and scan the products barcode. Once they approve your cashback request, the money is sent straight to your PayPal so you don’t need to worry about getting to a certain threshold before you get paid.
At the moment if you sign up you’ll receive a bar of Lindt chocolate totally free – just in time for Easter! If you fancy giving it a try I’ve put the download link in this post – I’ve also included my referral code which you can use if you want to. It doesn’t make a difference to your joining freebie, but it does give me some pennies in my referral account.
Here’s what to do:
Download the free Shopmium app on your iPhone or Android smartphone.
Open the app and use the code KFGYKAAJ when you sign up
Claim your free chocolate!! 🙂
