We all enjoy helping others to succeed. (Well, at least I hope we do!) Whether it is supporting your local businesses or ministries, or online speakers you favor, or even your favorite Youtube entertainer, giving back is rewarding in itself. There are many ways to support the work of others and APupStop has been researching some of the top means to facilitate mutually-beneficial relationships.
Seriously, you can save and earn money with your support for SIK9U.
Please take a browse below and find any that fit your budget and lifestyle. I promise, you will not be disappointed!
Of course, we have the common means of one-time and monthly/recurring support.
You can find our PayPal donation button at the right sidebar of every page, or by going to the page Color Outside the Lines.
Periodically you will find links to suggested products that will take you to Amazon.com. Even if you do not purchase what is recommended, *anything* you purchase from Amazon after clicking on a link in my blog will generate a percentage donated to A Pup Stop. So, whenever you are going to shop Amazon, stop here first and find a link!
Go ahead… I know you want to try it…
ibotta (*new accounts only*)
ibotta is a fabulous phone app that can be used on both Android and iPhones! Now, anyone that knows me knows full and well how much I truly do not like downloading *any*thing into my phone. But I saw a tv ad the other night and was tempted. I downloaded it–not into just my phone, but my husband’s also 😉 After only a few days of using it with our normal grocery shopping at two stores, I have earned over $35!
ibotta shops with you at over 300+ retailers, you can create teams and link loyalty accounts. You can gain cash-back benefits and discounts with the app either in-store or online.
The only thing I do not like about it thus far is that even with the online shopping, you must do so through the app on your phone (to the best of my remedial understanding!).
The reason I include ibotta here as a means to help support the SIK9U is due to their wonderful referral program. APupStop SIK9U will receive $5 for every person that downloads the app and sets up an account using this code (letters only):
>>>>>>>> opjqcxr <<<<<<<<
Our account will be credited as soon as you use the app! This is something that will continue to benefit you without a dime out of your pocket. So, download, sign up and get shopping! Just remember to enter the code when it asks who referred you! Or, if you’re reading this on your phone, click here:
Rakuten (*new users only*)
So, as I came down a bit from the excitement over earning $35 from simply shopping with a phone app, I saw an ad for Rakuten. This one I like because the phone app is optional and I can shop with it on my PC 😉
For those who are familiar with Ebates, Rakuten bought them out. Same process, new look and more retailers–in-store and online. They even have a handy browser extension, a “button” that pops up providing offers specific to the store/website you’re shopping on at the time.
Rakuten’s referral program is a bit more detailed. Here I copied it right from their site:
“Rakuten will pay you a $25 Referral Bonus through your Rakuten account for each Qualified Referral during the period beginning on January 1, 2019 and ending on December 31, 2019 (“Offer Period”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Referral Program Terms, this offer is valid only if the referral signs up and completes their qualifying purchase during the Offer Period.”
So, as long as you sign up *and* complete at least $25 shopping through their app, APupStop SIK9U will receive $25 bonus. Oh!! And remember this code:
(Click on link to enter code automatically.)
For most of us, $25 in online shopping is fairly simple to achieve 😉
The BEST part about Rakuten? …my fellow critter-lovers are going to jump at this>>> Chewy.com and several pet retailers are among their partners!! So, if you’re like me and spend exuberant amounts of money on Chewy each month, Rakuten’s offers, coupons and cash-back will definitely come in handy!!
Last, but certainly not least…
Another way to support APupstop SIK9U is to shop our merchandise. We will be updating all that very soon, but for now please check us at Spreadshirt.com.

Here’s a one-of-a-kind piece I did for a friend on an odd-shaped chunk of wood she had:
So dream it up and send your ideas!
Thanx so much for your time and support. We could not serve in this capacity without it 🙂
