10 Apps That Let You Score Cool Rewards

From free movie tickets to fries!

(SPOT.ph) With every centavo counting for something these days, it’s no surprise that people are getting smarter about their spending. One easy way you can do the same is by maximizing rewards and cashback apps. If you’ve ever heard your colleagues comparing points or badges in the pantry, they’re probably talking about these apps:


Available on: iOS, Android
If you’re the type who loves catching the latest flicks, GMovies is the perfect app for you. It doesn’t just let you buy tickets online (and in advance, for some movies), but also allows you to earn points from purchases and badges. Every P50 spend on a full-priced movie ticket earns you a point. Redeem 10 points and get P50 off on your movie of choice, or better yet, accumulate up to 50 points to get one free ticket to a 2D movie!

Online shopping definitely has its perks—something that ShopBack members know firsthand. By partnering with large e-commerce websites, the Singapore-based app is able to offer a certain rebate percentage for purchases made through their platform. The best part about this is that the amount you get back actually gets credited to your bank account in the form of cash in just a few days. 


Available on: iOS, Android
Zap is an app that operates on loyalty. It lets you earn back a certain percentage of your transaction from their partner establishments in the form of points and lets you use said points in the same establishments where you earned them. This is pretty neat, especially if you already have go-to stores, restaurants, and even spas. To earn your points, simply type your mobile number at a partner merchant’s ZAP terminal, and your points will be automatically credited to your account. The same goes for when you want to pay with points. 



Available on: iOS, Android
This time-based app doesn’t just let you reserve a table at any of their accredited restaurants, but also gives you discounts depending on when you choose to dine. For example, off-peak hours can sometimes give you as much as a 50% discount. The catch: You can’t be late, so make sure to factor in your travel time! 

GrabRewards by Grab

Available on: iOS, Android
If you rely on Grab to get around a lot,  then you’ve probably already amassed a lot of points. In fact, you may already be a Platinum Member, which means you can accumulate points faster, too. These points can be used to buy Ride Rewards, which are discount vouchers you can apply to your fare, but they can also be used to claim Partner Rewards, which are discounts from establishments and services. 

CLiQQ by 7-Eleven

Available on: iOS, Android
Formerly known as Every Day! Rewards, this app lets you earn points when you buy tangible goods from the store. These points can then be used to redeem rewards and pay for items at the CLiQQ Shop; they can even be converted into actual cash! To earn more points, pay with CLiQQ Pay Wallet, 7-Eleven’s mobile wallet. Keep in mind, though, that there are daily limits. Paying with cash allows you to earn points from your first two transactions for the day. Paying with CliQQ PAY Wallet, however, allows you to earn from your first 10 transactions.  

Potato Corner Craze

Available on: iOS, Android
Leave it to your favorite spud to come up with a way to engage their customers in a fun way. For every 179 coins you earn from running a Potato Corner stall, you get to redeem real Giga fries at selected Potato Corner branches. The promo runs until December 31, so better start playing now!


Vikings Rewards

Available on: iOS, Android
A little extra weight isn’t the only thing you’ll gain from dining at Vikings Buffet. When you purchase the Vikings Rewards card for P50 and download the app for free, you can start earning Rewards and Redemptions points for every P100 you spend. Rewards points help you upgrade your membership tier, while Redemptions points are for claiming rewards like rebates on select Vikings branches and other affiliates. Just note that forgetting your card means forfeiture of any points you might earn from your meal. 

Starbucks Rewards

Available on: iOS, Android
Starbucks lovers know just how handy the Starbucks Rewards card and app are. Transactions made either earn you Stars, which you can then exchange for drinks and selected products. But using the app sometimes qualifies you for special promos that let you earn twice as many Stars. It’s also a great way to secure and consolidate your accounts into one.

Pera Swipe

Available on: Android
Another easy way to accumulate points is through Pera Swipe. By downloading the app, you’re in effect renting your lock screen to the app, which then feeds you content from their strategic partners. Every time you swipe to unlock your screen, you earn points, which you can then use to get prepaid load or top up your Lazada wallet, among other exciting rewards. While this means you’ll be seeing ads and content recommendations on your phone a lot, at least you’ll be getting something out of it. 



Available on: iOS, Android
With the Uniqlo app, you can keep track of your purchases, receive special coupons on your birthday, get updates, find stores, and best of all, win discount vouchers! For every P2,000 purchase, you have the chance to win up to P500 off. Just scan your membership code upon purchase, and you’ll get to play the next day.
