Best Coupon Websites and Apps
If you’re looking to save money, this list of websites and apps will give you plenty of sources for coupons.
1. Ibotta ($10 bonus)
Ibotta is an extremely popular couponing app that makes it easy to save on the things you already buy. From within the app, you’ll be able to see a big collection of current offers. You can search for specific products or stores, or browse all of the available offers at a particular store.
When you see an offer that you’d like to use, all you need to do is tap to add it. After you’ve made the purchase you can use the app to scan your receipt and your account will be credited once it has been verified. Another option is to link your store loyalty cards to Ibotta, and it will be able to track your purchases without the need to scan receipts.
Using Ibotta is a great way to save on groceries, but there are also offers on clothes, cosmetics, cleaning products, and more. Before you go shopping (or when you’re in the store), just check Ibotta for the available offers at that store and you may be able to save some money very easily.
Some of the offers from Ibotta will be very general. You may be able to save on a purchase of any brand of a product (for example, milk), and sometimes there are offers for cash back on any purchase at a particular store.
Ibotta also makes it possible for you to save by shopping online. For the online offers, all you need to do is click through from the app and your purchase will be tracked and credited to your account.
Right now Ibotta is offering a $10 signup bonus for new users.
2. Checkout 51 ($5 bonus)
Checkout 51 is a coupon app especially for grocery shopping. It works in a similar way to Ibotta. You can browse offers by store or search for certain types of products. You’ll claim the offers that you want to use, and then after your shopping trip, you’ll use the app to photograph your receipt and upload to Checkout 51. Once it has been verified, your account will be credited.
The offers in Checkout 51 rotate weekly, so there’s always something new. Saving money with the app is pretty easy. Just check the offers before your shopping trips or when you are making your shopping list to see what is available.
Right now Checkout 51 is offering a $5 signup for new users. To get the bonus you will need to sign up using the link below. After the first offer that you redeem, you will be credited with an extra $2. The next three offers that you redeem will earn you an extra $1 each, for a total of up to $5. Those offers must be redeemed within 30 days of creating your account in order to earn the bonuses.
3. Ebates ($10 bonus)
Ebates isn’t a typical couponing website, but it does make it very easy to save money on many of your purchases, especially for online shopping. To get started, you’ll create a free Ebates account and install the browser extension (not mandatory, but highly recommended). With the browser extension installed, whenever you’re browsing a website that offers cash back through Ebates you will get a notification. Simply click on that notification so Ebates can track your purchase and you’ll earn cash back.
There are thousands of website that offer cash back through Ebates, so many of the purchases you are already making will earn you cash back. You don’t need to change your shopping habits or buy things just to earn cash back (that would be a bad idea).
The amount of cash back that you’ll earn from Ebates will vary, but it can be as high as 40%! if you do much shopping online, you can easily save money consistently thanks to Ebates.
Another awesome feature of the Ebates browser extension is that it will automatically find coupon codes for you. There have been several times when I have been in the process of buying something and Ebates notified me of a coupon code that would save me some money on that purchase. In this case, you’ll save money thanks to the coupon code and you’ll also earn the cash back.
Ebates also has some offers for cash back on in-store purchases, but at this time, you’ll find many more deals for online shopping. You can read more details in my Ebates review.
Right now Ebates is offering a $10 bonus for new users. All you need to do to qualify for the bonus is to make one purchase of at least $25 during your first 90 days. With 2,500+ stores in their program (including Amazon, Walmart, Ebay, Groupon, Target) you’ll have no problem making that one purchase.
4. Swagbucks ($10 bonus)
Swagbucks is another one that is not a typical couponing website, but it allows you to earn cash back in a very similar way to Ebates. Like Ebates, Swagbucks has a few thousand partner websites in their program and a browser extension that will notify you of cash back offers while you are browsing. Sometimes the cash back through Ebates is higher, and sometimes Swagbucks is higher.
With Swagbucks you actually earn points that they call swagbucks (SB), and then you can redeem them for cash, through PayPal, or gift cards. In general, 100 swagbucks is equal to $1, but there are usually some special offers that allow you to redeem your swagbucks for gift cards at discounted rates.
In addition to the cash back, Swagbucks also makes it possible to earn money from other things like surveys, watching videos, trying apps, searching, and more. For the purposes of this article, the cash back functionality is the most significant, and really, that’s were you can earn/save some good money.
Right now Swagbucks is offering a $10 sign up bonus for new users. To qualify for the bonus, you’ll need to make a purchase of at least $25 from one of their partner stores within 30 days of signing up. With thousands of stores in their program, you’ll have no trouble qualifying.
5. MyPoints ($10 bonus)
MyPoints is very similar to Swagbucks, and the two sites are actually owned by the same parent company. Like Ebates and Swagbucks, MyPoints has a cash back program for many of your online purchases. MyPoints also has a browser extension that will notify you of cash back opportunities while you’re shopping/browsing.
MyPoints also has a section on the site for coupon codes where you can find a wide variety of deals. They also have printable grocery coupons provided by coupons.com.
And like Swagbucks, MyPoints also has other money-making options that aren’t related to cash back or coupons, like taking surveys and watching videos.
Right now MyPoints is offering a $10 Amazon gift card as a signup bonus for new users. To qualify for the bonus, you’ll need to make $20 in purchases through their partner stores in the first 30 days. Like Ebates, and Swagbucks, MyPoints has thousands of partners, so meeting this requirement is easy.

All you need to do is click “clip coupon” for the ones that you want and you can easily add the product to your cart with the discount applied.
Honey is a free browser extension that automatically finds and applies the best coupon codes for you when you are shopping online. It’s free, quick to install, and then does the work for you.
