Week Eight – Use all your Resources

Thanks to my momma friends on the Momstown Burlington Message Board there is a whole new way to save money this year IF you have an iphone! Checkout 51 “Get new offers weekly. Buy from any store. Snap a photo of the receipt. Get cash back!”.. sounds to good to be true???   Folks are getting money back all kinds and the best part is that the coupons seems to be on items that we are really use weekly and often the item is on sale.  Here’s an example from this week; there is a coupon for $1.50 Classico Pasta Sauce and it’s on sale at Food Basics for 1.87.. that’s a jar of pasta sauce for 27 cents. The jury is out on what Checkout 51’s end game really is?? My thought is the manufactures of products want to see if we actually shop sales and what store we buy at. In our house is — when will Checkout 51 make an app for the Android?
