Deal News

The tagline for this app is: “Where every day is Black Friday.” It offers shoppers daily deals and shopping tips.

Ibotta

This rebate app allows shoppers to earn cash back for participating in “product tasks,” like taking a poll, plugging a product on Facebook or watching a video.

Checkout 51

This app points shoppers towards offers in brick-and-mortar stores. Once purchased, consumers snap a photo of the receipt and log it for rewards.
