Cash back apps
Which ones are you using and are worthwhile? Which ones have you tried and were disappointed with?
I've been using Checkout 51 for many years and I love it. You get cash back on selected items (mostly consumable goods and cleaning products) no matter where you buy them. Take a picture of your receipts, watch your cash back accumulate and request a cheque once you accumulate at least $20.
Caddle is another one similar to Checkout 51, but I haven't tried it yet. Has anyone tried it?
I also recently started using Receipt Hog, an app where you upload your receipts in exchange for "coins", redeemable for cash or gift cards, "no matter where you shop or what you buy". It sounds simple enough but the process to accumulate coins is actually quite convoluted and it's not true that any receipt will get you coins. But I'm still willing to give it a shot for a few months to see if it's worthwhile.
I also downloaded Paymi and Ampli, two apps linked to you debit/credit cards that offer cash back at specific stores, but I never used them. I found the list of merchants extremely lackluster, many of which I had never heard of, with annoying conditions like minimum spend, making it clear that I would never accumulate enough to redeem.
