UPDATED: Shave money off your grocery bill using Ibotta app

UPDATE: Since I first wrote about Ibotta last November, the app has made big changes worthy of an update. Once exclusive to the iPhone, Ibotta is now available to Android users. And once limited to Target, Walmart and Walgreens, Ibotta users can now cash in at dozens of more retailers. In the Triangle, you're now also able to use Ibotta at CVS, Rite Aid, Kroger and the store I'm most excited about: Harris Teeter. And remember, the coolest feature of Ibotta is that you can use its digital coupons along with paper coupons to save even more.

If you want to trim your grocery budget, but don't have the time or inclination to clip coupons, you're in luck. There's now an app for that.

Called Ibotta, the iPhone app is aimed at tech-savvy bargain hunters looking to save a little cash on their supermarket purchases.

Instead of clipping paper coupons, Ibotta users collect their discounts by playing with their smartphones.

So far, three of the biggest American retailers have signed on to allow their customers to use Ibotta: Target, Walgreens and Walmart.

The discounts are similar to paper coupons -- 25 cents here and 75 cents there.

But instead of using a scissors to clip....

Drugstore deals, Dec. 2-8

This week's drugstore ads are filled with sales on toys and candy, along with page upon page of gadgets and gizmos for the holidays. But keep in mind, not all these so-called deals are actually a bargain.

There are, however, several worthwhile deals tucked in among all the hype. Here are a few of the highlights:

CVS has great deals on bags of Hershey's holiday candy, Pampers diapers, All laundry detergent and discounted gift cards.

Rite Aid's best deals include Nivea lip balm for just 17 cents, Bob's candy canes, Luden's cough drops, 7UP 2 liters and discounted gift cards.

Drugstore deals, Nov. 25-Dec. 1

If you scored some of the many drugstore freebie deals offered over the holiday weekend, it's time to start spending all those rewards before they expire.

I like to use them to stock up on necessities like toilet paper and then use what's left to "roll" into new deals that will yield new rewards to keep my freebies coming and my stockpile fresh.

Here are a few of the better deals I spotted this week at CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens. Please feel free to chime in with any good deals you discovered.

Freebie alert: Free 8x10 from Walgreens


Walgreens is giving away free photos again through its online photo service.

This time around, its a free 8x10 enlargement.

Use the code: FREE2THANK

Place your order by 11:59 p.m. Central Time Saturday, Nov. 24 and choose in-store pick-up. That way your photo will be completely free.

This has definite holiday gift potential.

Drugstore freebie deals start on Thanksgiving

The drugstores are open Thanksgiving Day and they're hoping to lure you in with lots of freebies.

Pick up all kinds of items, from CVS batteries and Philips earbuds to Mars candy and Carmex lip balm -- all free after coupons and store rewards.

CVS and Walgreens are offering the most free offers with Rite Aid a distant third.

If shopping on Thanksgiving isn't your thing, the deals are good through Saturday but many of the freebies will likely be gone.

(I typically hit at least one of the drugstores early Thanksgiving morning. I'll slide my turkey into the oven, make a quick run to grab my freebies and return home before anyone else in the house is awake.)

Here's a sampling of the freebies and ridiculously cheap items available:
