I’m very into money saving apps for my everyday purchases! I have a bunch of them and I am constantly getting receiving notifications that I received cash back on a purchase I made (which I would have made regardless). Dosh is one of my personal favorites and right now they are offering a pretty sweet bonus for referring your friends!
Refer Your Friends, Get $25!
Dosh is celebrating their first birthday and is offering every user the opportunity to earn an unlimited amount of money. All you have to do is get a friend to download the Dosh app and earn cash back through an in-store offer. And your friend will earn $5 as well! New and existing users are eligible to receive the bonus, so if you are not yet a Dosh user, you can still sign up and start referring your friends.
How Does it Work?
Once you download the app, you’ll link your credit cards (I personally linked all the cards I use) and every time your linked card is used at a participating merchant you’ll receive cash back. Unlike some other apps, you do not need to activate an offer, use a promo code, scan your receipt, or really do anything. Just go about your normal purchases and viola – cash back will eventually appear.
There are a ton of participating merchants, some for in-store purchases while others are for online only. However, for many of the online purchase options you’ll need to go to the merchants website through the Dosh link – similar to an online shopping portal. For this particular promotion to work, however, your referral must shop at a participating in-store to generate the $25. In my local area there are actually a bunch of restaurants where I’ll receive 7% cash back! And there are a few that I eat at often. I gladly welcome cash back while eating out, especially when it is something I’m going to do anyways!
As I mentioned above, I personally linked all my credit cards so I do not need to think about it when making a purchase. I sort of forget the app exists and then am pleasantly surprised (and happy!) when I receive cash back. I have never made a purchase or selected a certain restaurant just for the cash back, so I am never spending more money to save money. And since this is cash back, you can combine this with any other promotion you run across – i.e., in-store/restaurant coupon, Amex Offer, bonus points/miles, etc.
