3 companies giving you cash back to shop

American's are spending more on restaurants than groceries and grocers are willing to pay you to come back. They are partnering with consumer incentivizing companies to get people like you to shop with them. Kristina Guerrero has three programs you can take advantage of right now.

1. Ibotta

This app is a rebate system that gives you cash back after you go shopping. You select rebates before you go shopping. Just pick from the over 500,000 participating stores, submit a picture of your receipt and they pay you actual cash within 48 hours. Your rebate will be deposited into your bank account, Venmo, PayPal, or you can cash it in for gift cards and it's all personalized. Users see very different content depending on who they are, what they've bought in the past, what they've expressed interest in, even the time of day they're viewing the app. Ibotta has rebated over two hundred million dollars and counting in rebates.

2. National Consumer Panel

Have you ever hear of the Nielsen's ratings? The same folks who track what you watch on TV want to track what you buy and they want to reward you for it. They give you a special scanner that you scan the items you buy and the NCP gives you points you can redeem for gifts in a catalogue. There are electronics, jewelry and even household appliances – which pretty much is money in the bank. You do have to be approved to be an NCP panelist, but, considering all the cool things you can get, applying is a pretty good idea.

3. InboxDollars

Couponing is huge! TLC even produced the show Extreme Couponing to show the pursuit of discount grocery glory. Now there is a website that typically pays you to take surveys, but it will also pay you to clip coupons. InboxDollars wants to pay you 10 cents (per coupon) to clip their coupons that you were going to use anyway. The dimes add up over time to a nice sum that you can use for whatever you want.
