Shopping & Earning With Shopmium

One of my favorite features of my iPhone is all of the money saving and money earning apps that are available.  One of my recent app discoveries is the Shopmium app.

The premise of Shopmium is similar to Ibotta and Checkout 51.  Users earn money by purchasing specified products at particular stores.  Local readers can use Shopmium at CVS, Schunucks, Walgreens, Dollar General, Walmart, Target, and Aldi. The app uses your phone's GPS to locate participating stores near you. Users purchase the item(s), scan the bar code to verify it's the correct item, snap a picture of the receipt, and upload it. The best part of Shopmium is that payment is automatically processed via Paypal after each transaction. Unlike Ibotta and Checkout 51, there is no minimum amount you have to have in your account before you can cash out. Shopmium is compatible with iPhone 3GS & higher, as well as Android devices 2.3.3 and up.

I've actually had the Shopmium app downloaded to my phone for a couple of months, but there haven't been any offers worth redeeming.  So, since I didn't really have anything newsworthy to share, I held off on posting about it. It's like they read my mind, because there have been several offers that have popped up recently that I plan on scooping up!

Here's the lowdown on a recent Method Hand Wash offer that I snagged at Target:

My total out of pocket at the register before Shopmium was $1.58.

Next, I opened up the Shopmium app, where I found the following offer for Method Hand Wash:

After scanning the product and submitting my receipt, my Paypal account was $1 richer.  Yay! 

Want to get in on the Shopmium action? Head here to download.  If you use my referral code, GYHCUFQN, you'll also receive an offer for a FREE Lindt Chocolate bar! 

Happy Shopping!

Product Review & Giveaway: Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh

Disclosure: The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh in exchange for a product review. All opinions (and all laundry!) are my own.

Thanks to Purex, my #SpringCleaning2014 laundry smells fabulously fresh! Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh is the newest Purex laundry enhancer that brings a fresh fragrance to your laundry experience.   

Like all Purex Crystals, this product is safe for all loads of laundry including children's sleepwear and athletic wear.  In addition, it does not reduce the absorbency of towels.  I have found that just a small amount of this product provides a huge amount of long lasting fragrance.  The bottle says that the freshness lasts for weeks. I definitely agree with that statement!  For me, there's nothing better than smelling sheets and bedding washed with Purex Crystals Fabulously Fresh and dried outside on my clothesline.

Purex is celebrating the release of this fabulous new product by hosting a sweepstakes.  One lucky grand prize winner will receive $1000 and a year's supply of Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh. (100) 2nd place winners will each receive a coupon for a free bottle of Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh!  You can't win if you don't enter - get entered here. Sweepstakes ends 4/28/14.

Additionally, I'm pleased to announce that I am also holding a coupon giveaway! Three lucky Roscoe Ramblings readers will each receive a coupon redeemable for a free bottle of Purex Crystals Fabulously Fresh.  Good luck!
