PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --They are the two words that make every wallet sing: free money.
And thanks to the joys of technology and the genius of a few app creators, that free money can be yours with just a few easy clicks.
First, if you haven't added the chrome browser extension called Honey, here's what you're missing.
The popular savings tool not only automatically digs up and applies available coupon codes for thousands of online stores, but if available, it also shows you a cheaper alternative to whatever you're buying. And there's a cash back option too.
All you have to do is add the extension to your Google chrome browser. They are working on a mobile application too.
Another easy way to get cash back is with an app called Ebates. They will pay you money just for spending it on things you would be buying anyway.
Ebates works both on smart phones and on a desktop, offering you cash back on your online purchases.
The trick to getting your free money is to click on the Ebates app first and then go to the store you want to shop.
Your shopping trip is logged and you get a percentage of your purchase back by way of a check. They send them out four times a year.
