Shopmium: Earn Cash Back with New Savings App

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy

shopmium-iconThere’s a new mobile savings app to check out called Shopmium and its FREE to download! You can sign up HERE to download for the iPhone and Android users can download HERE. Plus, if you enter the promo code FYHKKYVN, you can get a FREE Lindt Chocolate Bar!

Similar to ibotta and Checkout 51, this cool app has new offers every week for you to check out and getting cash rebates is easy. You can also write reviews on the products you try and share with your friends. This app is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones but requires one with an auto-focus camera.


Here’s how it works… 
Choose an offer in the list and find it in any store. Shopmium will even bring up a map with suggestions of stores near you including Target! Once you find your product in the store, you can check to make sure its eligible using the scan feature in the app. Once you’ve bought your item, keep your receipt and take a photo with the app. You can get paid thru Paypal and in the future, Shopmium has plans to add a Bank Transfer option, or give to a charity instead.

Before you can get paid thru Paypal, you will need to provide your email address by clicking on Profile and then selecting Paypal as payment method. You do not need to have a paypal account, just enter your email address and you will be notified by Paypal once your rebate is available. It may take a couple days, I just set mine up and will let you know. Should you have any trouble, you can go to their website and click on “Contact Us” and someone should get back to you with in a day or two.

You can use coupons with this app but the amount of the rebate is calculated after coupons. Rebates vary so check under terms and conditions for method and amount.

shopmium-banner2Here’s a sampling of the offers you may find in Shopmium…
Earn up to $0.50 rebate on Chobani Greek Yogurt
Earn up to $1 rebate on any Smucker’s Fruit Spread
Earn up to $ rebate on Ritz Bits
Earn up to $1 rebate on Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

Things to remember…
Shopmium only works with a smartphone thru the app. You can sign up using your email or Facebook account. To get your first rebate on the Lindt Chocolate Bar, you will be required to scan the product barcode first, then take a photo of the receipt. This offer is valid while supplies last and must be redeemed within 8 days of signing up. Shopmium works at any store, the list of stores in the app is just a guide.

Glitches: If you have difficulty taking a picture of your receipt thru the app, there is an option on the screen (in small print at the bottom) to upload a photo from your photo library. Just take a photo of the receipt, then open the app, and after verifying the product by scanning the barcode, choose “Upload Pictures from your Library” and follow the prompts.

  1. FREE Lindt chocolate bar as a gift to anyone who signs up with Shopmium using referral code.
    Here is mine: HUFFKHWJ

    I will get $2 and you will get chocolate !!!!
    If someone would use mine I would greatly appreciate it

  2. Shopmium will not accept any receipts where coupons were used. You can only use Shopmium on items that you purchased for FULL price. This had been their rule since day one. This is a stupid rule because most of the time you can find a coupon worth much more than the Shopmium rebate. This is why Checkout 51 and Ibotta will always be on the top of my list. They accept any receipt, no matter how many discounts/coupons were used.

  3. Has anyone gotten a referral bonus awarded to them? How long does it take?
    Also, if you are going to sign up, please consider using my referral code for a free Lindt chocolate: GHYFMURA. Thanks!

  4. someone said this app will work on ipod gen 4 but does anyone know if it will work on ipad 2? It’s the only device i have with a camera built in.

  5. Can someone tell me how many offers Shopmium puts out a week? I don’t want to d/l the app unless I think it’s worth it.

    I have used Ibotta & have purchased very few items. Checkout 51 is much better since there are better offers & they have a website, not just an app. Additionally, I don’t have a PayPal account so Checkout 51 once again wins for other options.

  6. How long does it usually take to recieve a rebate? I completed my first two rebates today!…Please use my referral code GFAFHCWY.

  7. Casey- Have you set up your email thru the app for payment method? Before you can get paid, you will need to choose Paypal as method of payment and then enter your email address on the next screen. You can see the 2nd paragraph under “Here’s How it Works” in the post above for more details. This step is separate from the email notifications you have been receiving from Shopmium regarding your referral totals. Also, see the last paragraph of my post for helpful hints when taking photos of your receipts. HTH

  8. John- You can contact Shopmium regarding whether its too late. Just click on “Contact Us” at the bottom of the page on their website. HTH

  9. I have a few questions for those who have been using this. First, when do referral bonuses credit to PayPal? I’ve received my total via email, but it has not credited. Also, is anyone else having issues with the camera. I pretty much gave up trying to snap a pic of receipt for two offers. Very frustrating!

  10. @Fai Port — That’s good to know! I’ve been using it thinking I’ll get the full amount.

    Also — it takes a loooong time for your receipts to be approved. I’ve been waiting about a week on a couple of items. Still waiting. I got spoiled with Checkout51 & Ibotta’s quick turnaround time.

  11. I didn’t see that on there as an offer , what type of lindt bar and how much? Thank you.

  12. John- To get your first rebate on the Lindt Chocolate Bar, you will be required to scan the product barcode first, then take a photo of the receipt just as if you were doing it like an offer. HTH

  13. Judy – You can get paid via Paypal, Bank Transfer, or give to a charity instead. HTH

  14. This app takes coupons into consideration, they will only use the amount paid after any coupons.

  15. I’m wondering how stackable this is since it says not good with any other offer. Going to try Ritz Bits for this app and checkout 51.

  16. Sheri, I used your code. If anyone wants to sign up and use my code, I would appreciate it! GHMFMFWZ

  17. I’m confused on the Lindt bar, I didn’t enter anything when I signed up for any promo code. Is it too late now that it is downloaded?

  18. noelle, i used your code. if anyone else would want to sign up and use mine, much appreciated… GHMGGEPK

  19. The app also works with an iPod gen 4 or 5, for those of us who don’t have a smart phone. Getting it to scan the barcode is a little fiddly, but it DOES work. YAY!

  20. My offer for Burt’s Bees was a rebate that says to “Get it for only $1” meaning they will reimburse you for the difference between purchase price and $1 (up to $2.70). That would work out nicely with the Target offer for a free method hand soap with the purchase of 3 natural products, including Burt’s Bee’s lip balms/colors 🙂
    Also, I noticed that there is a Nutella offer for $2 back; Nutella is on sale for $2.99 this week, making it only $.99 after rebate! I still had a BOGO Nutella coupon from a while back, so I was able to get 2 Nutella for only $.99 🙂
    Thanks for letting us know about this new app! I love all these rebate apps coming out.

  21. I used referral code . I would appreciate it so much if someone would consider using mine. Got my free lindt chocolate! yay! here is my code GMCMCETL
