Shopmium is an easy app to use: just scan the barcode, take a picture of your receipt, and get cash back!  The best thing about Shopmium is that you don’t need a minimum balance to cash out your account.  They send you money directly to your Paypal account after you submit your rebate!  All you have to do is add the e-mail address associated with your Paypal into your account settings on Shopmium.

You can start by downloading the Shopmium app here.  While creating your account, you will need to enter the referral code GHAEAFQN.  By doing this, you will get an offer for a FREE Lindt chocolate bar.  This offer will only be available by entering the referral code, so do not skip this step!

After creating the account, it will look like this:

A list will come up of all the different offers available.  Click on the item you are purchasing.  For example, let’s say I purchased the Hershey’s Pudding.  I click on the item, and the page looks like this:

I go to the bottom right of the screen and click on the pink button that says “Request my Rebate”.  From there it will ask me to scan the barcode to verify the purchase.

After scanning the barcode, take a picture of your receipt, and then the money will deposited straight to your Paypal account!  Some rebates require the purchase to be done from a specific store.  If it requires a specific store, it will say so in the description of the rebate.

There are two big downsides to Shopmium: first, you cannot use a manufacturer’s coupon and receive a Shopmium rebate on the same item.  You can only use one or the other, but if you use a manufacturer’s coupon on the item, they will not pay you for the rebate.  Second, Shopmium has a list of stores that they will not accept rebates from.  This list includes Kroger, CVS, Publix, Meijer, Harris Teeter, Ralphs, King Soopers, and others.  You can read the whole list in their terms and conditions.

While these downsides can be discouraging, I still save a ton of money on Shopmium!  It’s great to use when there isn’t a manufacturer’s coupon available.  Plus, Target and Walmart are not excluded from their list of stores, which is where I do a lot of my shopping!  I still have plenty of opportunity to use this app and it is well worth having.  Plus, you get a FREE Lindt chocolate bar when you enter the referral code GHAEAFQN, so the app is worth downloading just for that!  Go download Shopmium today!
