Penny Pinching your way into savings and earning!

If you feel like you are wasting money on groceries then you’re not alone. The average American spends around $160 per week at the supermarket. What if I told you that number can be easily cut in half by penny pinching a few things and earning on others.? Interested?

Whether you shop at Costco, Aldi, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Publix or Kroger, these tips and methods are not only going to save you money, but earn you some as well.

 

1. You’re Not Using Free Gift Cards For Groceries

Saving money doesn’t happen only at the supermarket. Many companies let you earn gift cards by completing activities online.

Our favorite ways to do some penny pinching and earn free gift cards is Ipsos i-Say. They send surveys less frequently than other sites but this means you get paid way more per survey. If you’re short on time or don’t like a cluttered inbox, it’s your best choice. Cash out your rewards into gift cards to your favorite supermarket or cash.

2. You’re Not Getting Paid To Shop

Besides penny pinching, I get paid to go shopping and you can too. Wondering how? With Ebates. I am sure you have seen their commercials. You are earning money back on every purchase, 100% free. Ebates earns their money from affiliate programs when you buy through them and then they pass part of those earnings to you in form of cashback percentages. Pretty cool, huh?!

Just buy products through your very own link and earn cash rewards. I earn around $200 per month just from things I normally buy at all my online stores. Best part, it’s 100% free – how awesome is that?!

To sweeten the deal, Ebates is offering a massive bonus for new users – a bonus $10 when you make your first purchase! This one is essential to use and earn cash. This goes above beyond penny pinching!

3. You’re Not Discovering New Products For Free

Higher priced items can indicate higher quality. It can also just mean one brand has a bigger marketing budget than the other.

Instead of wasting money trying every single option available, try joining an online consumer panel. These panels let you get free product samples and let you earn money for participating in market research.

The hard part of these panels is getting into them since they can be exclusive. Luckily, to join Shopper’s Voice all you need to is take a quick questionnaire to see if you qualify instantly. Believe me, this one is worth it!

4. You’re Unknowingly Wasting Money

Impulse purchases are budget killers. Unfortunately, most people don’t know where they’re wasting money. InboxDollars can help.

InboxDollars is a top paying consumer behavior site that lets you earn money learning about different products and evaluating them before they hit the market. It’s an easy way to find cheaper alternatives to expensive brand-name products.

It helped me save some serious money after I saw some expensive shopping habits come up.

5. You Don’t Have A Side Hustle To Cover Your Groceries

Food companies want to understand what types of products people prefer. One way they learn this is through market research sites – these sites pay you for your opinions and it can be a nice money earner if you can spare a few minutes a week.

One of the most popular sites is Opinion Outpost since they pay you top dollar (up to $25 each) for every survey and product review you complete. That’ll help put a big dent in your food budget.
