Typically I’m writing about food and restaurants, but I’m in the holiday spirit. My show is Dining on a Dime, so I’m sharing some tips and apps I’ve researched that might help you save some money on your shopping this holiday season.
5–Shopkick APP– When you shop, both in person and online you earn “kicks”. Once you earn enough kicks you can trade them in for giftcards. You’re spending money, but eventually you’ll get something back so you can save in the future.
4–Rakuten APP–Rakuten is an app and a browser extension. If you do your shopping through Rakuten you earn cashback on what you buy, with some as high as 40%. If you were an Ebates user you’ll be familiar with this, because Rakuten is Ebates.
3–Price Grabber–Check online store ratings and compare prices with Price Grabber. The company partners with a variety of different outlets and vendors and lends the savings to you.
2–Shopbot–Shop your favorite stores through their website and get cashback because they get a commission for sending you there and they give that commission to you.
1–Idealo APP–Type in the product that you are looking for, it will give you price comparisons from multiple stores and you can set price alerts, which will give you alerts at whatever price point that you set
These are just some of the tips from my latest episode of Dining on a Dime. None of these are paid endorsements, just research passed onto my listeners and readers. Be sure to listen to the show to also listen to our interviews with Spot Gourmet Burgers and Molly Malloy’s, two spots doing Philly food right! You can also listen to all the episodes and see more of my posts at my website Philly Restaurant Reviews which has 1000’s of useful posts!
Happy Holidays from Kevin Wilson and the Dining on a Dime Family!
