Shopping is a part of everyone’s life, some people are crazy about shopping for new stuff and even find grocery shopping interesting, the other don’t really like wasting their time for shopping. Doesn’t matter if you like shopping or consider it a waste of time, we would like to show you several resources, which can make shopping both fun and profitable (this article will have a “further reading” section, where you will be able to find links to sites, which pay money for using mobile applications while shopping or provide cash-back on both online and offline purchases).
This blog has already featured some good sites for saving money on shopping and we keep finding new opportunities to save money and can’t resist reviewing them in this blog.
Save money on shopping with SavingStar.com
SavingStar is the first fully-digital grocery eCoupon service providing rewards to US residents (only one country supported at the moment). Shoppers are sure to enjoy this new system of rewards as the need for clipping or printing out coupons simply disappeared after the introduction of this service.
SavingStar.com allows you to keep all your loyalty cards in one place and deposit money saved on shopping into your personal account. Their system works a bit different than a regular coupon system to which we are all used. Users are to search the database of supported stores and items from these stores, which provide cash-back.
Luckily, SavingStar managers have put up a good FAQ area on their website, so all new members should not have trouble figuring out how this cash-back shopping service works. Yet another great feature of this project is that users can simultaneously be registered with other money-saving services like Upromise (the review of this site has been already published in this blog). Speaking of withdrawing the money, members, who have managed to earn at least 5 dollars are eligible to request a PayPal cash-out, request an Amazon gift-card or donate earnings to charity.

Apart from giving its users a chance to save money on shopping, SavingStar.com allows them to become members of their development team by posting job leads in a special section.
