Frugal savings Ohmconnect review

As part of  my frugal savings ,recently i started using the ohmconnect ,some of the other Apps i use are Ibotta,receiptpal,fetch rewards. Now all of them are not the same level of  savings.  During the last few months of the summer i have been seeing high  electric usage due to AC and high fan usage. Started looking into how to reduce my electric bill or are there any options . This is where ohmconnect comes, from there website it mentions when there is high usage either we generate more electricity using not clean methods or try to  save  power by lower usage.

Ohmconnect asks us to reduce the power usage by incentivizing with points and which can be redeemed for Amazon gift card or paypal cash.Typically they ask to  you reduce power usage 1 hour a day  and this hour is called “OHMHOUR” and maybe 3 or 4 times a week. Based on how much usage you reduce you get base points and if you are on some of kind of streak  then there is another bonus and finally depending upon the your membership level you get more bonus.

Since i joined i participated in 5 Ohm Hours and currently my savings are at $9 and my recent hour needs to updated with points

100 points =1 dollar

so my last ohmhour produced me a saving of $5 for that hour.

I also got a $10 for joining using a referral  and i referred a neighbor got $20.

Things i do to save  during the ohmhour is try to switch of the non important things ,or plug off laptops,TV,charging etc.

One of the thing is its not available in all state ,only CA and TX with smart meter hookup.This way they can connect to your meter and get the readings.

I read the AMA of the founder and its interesting answers more questions how they save and make money.

Frugal Living -Instacart Review

Name may sound  that i am not doing frugal living  by trying out expensive services,but after you read this you can see the  deal . Also  i love to try all new services like this ,when we were in California,i tried Amazon Prime Now,Grub hub,Hello fresh and Winc Wines.Most of the times, there is really good discount for trying out the first time.

As many of you are aware that T-Mobile is doing T-mobile Tuesday freebies.Some of the freebies are really nice like $2 movie tickets, 0.25 cents of gas/gallon etc.This week they were offering $10 off groupon local and i started searching how to use it on groupon and then i Found this deal which was offering 40 dollars worth of groceries for $15 Bucks.

Even better was is there is no service delivery fees  for 1 year,it  seems they might recently entered the Market or so. Currently few stores are in my market like Kroger,tomthumb or Costco.

We decided to try from Costco as we don’t have Costco membership.There is definitely mark up on the prices by instacart.Ordering was easy and time slots /availability was good.

Overall I think we got 50% or more discount on the price.I don’t think I will order again with service.It might work people who don’t like to shop or have time to shop.

So what other services did the DGI community try out.
