How to get paid to shop

Cheapism Logo By Scott Nyerges of Cheapism | Slide 1 of 11: Headed to your favorite store? You could be using your phone to earn cash back on the stuff you buy. Some apps reward you simply for walking into a store and buying certain products while others act like digital coupon books, but all of them allow you to save on everything from groceries to cosmetics to clothing and more. There is a catch, of course. All of these money-saving apps and sites require you to create accounts and document your purchases in some way, such as snapping photos of your receipts or allowing them to monitor your credit card activity. But if you're okay with that, you could see some significant savings accumulate over time on your everyday purchases. These 10 are some of the best, according to experts. All of them are free to download and available for Apple and Android phones.
