How to Price Match Learn how to save money using price matching

With the digital age ever evolving the use of Apps have become the norm. If you are a smart device user you will want to check our Must Have Apps. Some of these programs are also available for use online if you are not a smart device user. I’ll indicate that on each one that is.  At I Love Savings we do recommend them all – Savings Apps for Canadians.

Cashback Apps

Cashback Apps are just that. Apps that will give you money back on things you buy everyday. You can achieve some of the best savings buy combining a sale with a coupon and a cashback rebate. A number of times we have had items for free, paying only the taxes and sometimes even made a little bit of money to take an item home.   On rare occasions we also see the same product have a rebate on different apps at the same time. Regardless of the price point you paid if there is a cashback rebate – claim it.

How They Work:

  • Browse through the offers to see which ones you like. Tap on each offer to read the instructions, restrictions, limits etc. and buy the products accordingly.
  • Each app has an upload feature – use the upload button to take a picture of your receipt making sure to capture the top of the receipt all the way to the bottom. Make sure your pictures are clear and the name of the store and the date of purchase is visible. Once you are done hit submit.
  • A list will appear with all the current offers. Go through and choose which offers you are claiming. Once you’ve picked them all and in the quantities you bought – hit submit.
  • Receipts are generally approved within a couple of days and your account credited.
  • Once your account reaches its threshold you can request your money back. It takes roughly 3 weeks to receive your money once you’ve requested it most cases.

Caddle

Caddlecaddle is a cashback app with a twist. They have the normal offers of buy this product and get this amount back but on some offers they also have a bonus that if you watch a short 10-20 second video and answer a couple of quick questions you can earn cashback just for doing that. Even if all you did was watch the videos and answer the questions you can accumulate some money back.

Zweet

zweetZweet is a cashback app similar to all of the rest but with 1 unique feature. With Zweet every receipt you upload and get approved you also receive 5 Zweet points. Once you’ve accumulated enough points you can look through the list of offers and get gift cards to places like Tim Horton’s & Star Bucks or Donate your points to a Charity. Please note it does take quite a while to accumulate these points. Don’t buy things just for these points. One way to accumulate them a little faster though is if you are planning on buying things on the list anyway buy them in separate transactions then you will get 5 Zweet points for each item you bought instead of 5 points for buying them all on the same receipt.

  • Offers go from 12:01 Wednesday – 11:59pm Tuesday
  • This app is available for both Android & Apple users
  • This program can also be accessed through the website for non smart device users.
