MWI: 63% prefer earning cash or gift cards in mobile savings apps

You know that feeling of finding $20 in your pocket you forgot was there? It’s the best. We get that feeling basically any time we get free samples of awesome products (the perks of working somewhere that facilitates samplings…) or find a killer deal on Groupon.

Turns out, so do you! In a poll we asked last week, you showed us that you love using apps that save you money and let you try new products.

“I love doing this because I get to try things I may not have EVER tried before.” – Robert A.

“I love trying new things and I rely on reviews for which products I buy. Being able to provide reviews makes me feel useful for others as well!” – Jessica M.

“Saving money is a must of course, and it is fun, too! Knowing you’ve saved money effortlessly – yay! Trying the products is honestly the most satisfying reward “stash” of satisfaction.” – Zahamary D.

Like true Crowdtap members, 54% of you told us that earning points for cash or gift cards is your main motivation for using money-saving apps, over finding deals or discounts.

Once you earn those gift cards or cash rewards, most people (60%) use them for everyday purchases at places they normally shop, like Amazon, Walmart, or the grocery store.

So, which apps and sites are you using?

59% said Groupon for discounts and deals, and 49% said Ibotta for earning rewards on things you buy. Lots of you also use sites like BzzAgent (33%), Influenster (17%) and PinchME (37%) to receive free product samples.

But you love us the most <3

72% said Crowdtap was your favorite site for earning rewards (aw!).

“Crowdtap is my favorite because it offers both free samples and rewards! I’ve discovered new things that I now purchase because of how much I liked it when I sampled it via Crowdtap (like the Neutrogena Hydro Gel line) and the Amazon gift cards that I’ve earned helps me buy it!” – Pam W.

“I can earn points by sharing my opinion. I don’t have to find certain products and buy them first, I can earn points and then go buy them and test them out.” – Ashley S.

“I love the great mix of brands and products. I love earning points for Amazon gift cards and also getting to try products. I love that there are sometimes samples to share with friends too. I really love to share my opinions, and Crowdtap is set up really [well] for sharing thoughts and hearing about others!” – Jill P.

Thanks guys – we love you, too!

My fav app is crowdtap. Not only does our family get to try new products, but we het paid for our feed back. I purchased our childrens backpacks for school thanks to all the Amazon gift cards i have earned through crowdtap and still have funds left over. Thanks so much Crowdtap!!!
