New and Improved Makeena Cashback App – Download Today!
Great new guys! Last month makeena launched their new app and this new version is so much better and easier to use than the previous version! Makeena is a free, easy to use mobile application that earns you money when you purchase healthy & eco-friendly products at any retailer.
If you are familiar with Shrink before they shut down last November, this new app looks a lot like Shrink since they acquired Shrink’s technology. I love the features of this new app which allows you to discover new brands but it also offers a loyalty feature as well so you can continue to earn points for rewards for more cashback or freebies. Another cool feature of makeena is that you can buy the products online and still redeem for the rebate offers…how awesome is that!!??!
Makeena is currently in the process of adding new brands in the app (they have around 15 currently), so be sure to keep checking back to see what need brands are added. And if you have any feedback or want to see any new features, please share them with me and I’ll be happy to share with Karen Frame (makeena’s CEO).
Here is quick run-down on how to use the app since it can seem a bit confusing at first:
- Once you are logged into the app, discover the different brands. When you find a brand you like, click on the brand to “Unlock” the brand, which earns you points that you can later redeem for rewards.
- Once you unlock the brand, you can see what “Offers” are currently available for the brand. There are 3 sections.
- The “Rebate” offer earns you cashback when you buy that particular product. Click on the offer and “Add to Shopping List”
- The “Actions” offer allows you to earn additional points by referring your friends, signing up for the brand’s newsletter, sharing on social media, etc. These points will accumulate so you can earn “Rewards” for more cashback or other great offers.
- The “Loyalty” offer is my favorite. Once you redeem your initial rebate and if you continue to buy this product, you can scan those products to earn points. Again, with these points you can get additional rewards. No other cashback app offers this feature.
- Once you purchase the product, you can click on “Redeem” on the bottom of the app. Scan the product UPC and take a picture of your receipt. Then wait for the cash to appear in your account! Once you have accumulated $20 in your account, you can cash out via Paypal or Venmo.
