App Automatically Finds Cash Back Rewards On Stuff You Already Buy

March 12, 2018

There's always room to save money and although there are a lot of apps out there that hunt down coupons or discount codes, it's usually when you are standing in the checkout line you remember to search for them and it's a race to find them before the total button s pushed.  So a new app for Android and Apple maybe the shopping discount of your dreams.  The free app is called Dosh. The way the app works is pretty simple. You link your credit card and then when you shop at its participating stores they’ll give you cash back, typically somewhere between 3-10%. Stores like Gap, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Forever 21, Wendy's and even hotels like Marriott and Hilton. Unlike some other programs where you have to select a cashback offer at a store before you shop, you automatically opt-in to every cash back opportunity on Dosh when you sign up, making it a set it and forget it type of experience.  The app works online too. Each purchase accrues in your Dosh account and when you reach at least $25 in rewards, you can cash out and have money sent to your PayPal account. Of course the catch is some of your purchase history will be passed along to retailers and that will probably be used to target specific products to you.  But if you're OK with that, this app may be a great way to get real cash back without jumping through a bunch of hoops!
