  5. an app called Dosh that is currently new in public is the best. I’ve enjoyed using the app and l have earned some cash back on a few regular purchases I make in my area at this time the app is still pretty new, my biggest concern is how many offers are available in your area on the in-store shopping side of the app. No matter your location, you can take advantage of the travel and online shopping, but one of the impressive features of this app, in my opinion, is the in-store shopping. Long as you live in a decent sized city, you should have plenty of available offers.
