Earn $5 for Using NEW Makeena Cash Back App + Save On Healthy and Organic Products

Hip2Save may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. Read our full disclosure policy here.

Love cash back offers? Here’s a new way to save on healthy items – even fresh fruits and veggies! ๐ŸŽ

Makeena is a new cash back app that brings you great offers on healthy items often rated organic, vegan, kosher, and more! It’s sometimes hard to find great deals on these healthier items. With this new app, you’ll have a quick way to get a little cash back on the healthy items you may already be buying. And I love that you can get cash back offers on fresh organic fruits and vegetables!

New users can earn up to $5 bonus cash when you redeem your first offer! Sweet!

For a limited time, Makeena is offering an exclusive $4 bonus for new Hip2Save users when you download the app (here for Apple iOS and here for Android), use referral code MJWEMC when registering, then redeem your first offer by February 7th. Youโ€™ll also score a bonus $1 offer just for filling out your profile info.

That’s an extra $5 just for downloading the app, filling out your profile information and redeeming an offer by February 7th. So AWESOME!

ย Here are a few of the offers you can grab currently…

How does Makeena work?

Similar to other cash back apps, browse through the Makeena App or search for “organic,” “non-gmo,” etc., to see what offers are available. Click on items youโ€™d like to unlock offers for, add them to your shopping list, and then go shopping at the store or buy online. Once you have the product in hand, at the store or at home, simply scan the barcode of the item(s) you are buying so Makeena can register the offer in its backend.

Then, once you are done shopping, just take a photo of your receipt and if the offer matches your receipt, the cash will be added to your account within 24-48 hours. When you are ready to cash out your account, the money will be transferred via your Paypal or Venmo account.

In addition to getting cash back on items, Makeena has a loyalty program where you can also accumulate points to redeem for more cash back! Further, there are opportunities to earn Makeena points for actions such as liking a brand on social media, or redeeming multiple offers from a brand. Your points can then be redeemed for extra cash back offers to save even more money on that brand! Learn more about how Makeena worksย here.

Head here to get started and earn your $5 bonus cash!ย

    Itโ€™s great to finally have an app that rewards you for healthy/organic items. I recently downloaded this app and love it. User friendly with many good options to choose from.

    • Karen with Makeena

      Thank you for rocking it!

  2. LC

    How much do you need to have before you can redeem? I know for Ibotta it’s $20…

    • Abbie

      Itโ€™s $20 to cash out with PayPal or Venmo

      • Karen with Makeena

        Yes, that is correct. Thank you for signing up! Great things ahead!

  3. K

    Is this limited deal only good for NEW H2S users?

    • Karen with Makeena

      Hi, if you are new to Makeena, yes, you can use the code. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Jennlk84

    This is great! Always looking for more ways to get cash back!

    • Karen with Makeena


  7. Mulligan

    Didnโ€™t get the $4 with the code :/ thanks anyway still looking forward to trying

    • Karen with Makeena

      Hi Mulligan, you’ll get the $4 if you use the App to redeem an offer before the 7th.

      Thanks for signing up!

      • K

        Karen, I used the app today to submit a receipt. I also just signed up and used the referral code in the post. However, even though I got an email that the receipt was successful, I didnโ€™t get the bonus. Any idea why?

        • ksketch

          The same thing happened to me. I also signed up using the Hip2Save referral code, submitted my receipt (which was accepted), but no $4 bonus.

          • amanda

            Ditto… No $4 bonus for using code after redeeming my first offer.

            • Maia

              same here, got credited for the items I redeemed but no $4 for using the code

            • Nancy

              Same here, used Hip2Save referral code, redeemed my first offer but no $4 bonus.

        • Karen with Makeena

          Hi! Please allow 48 hours for the $4 to appear in your account. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Debbie

    Is this lmited deal for the $4.00+$1.00 only for those new on H2S?

    • Karen with Makeena

      Hi Debbie – Yes, the additional $4 bonus is only for new H2S users. Please make sure you use referral code MJWEMC when signing up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. AllenMom

    I used your referral link. Please use my referral code EPMAUC while signing up. Each gets $1.

    • Karen with Makeena

      You rock! Thanks for signing up! ๐Ÿ™‚ New Makeena users should use the exclusive Hip2Save referral code MJWEMC to get the additional $4 bonus (which will be credited after submitting their first receipt).

      • Maia

        I redeemed a few offers but didn’t get the credit for entering H2S referral code. Can you please explain? thanks.

        • Karen with Makeena

          Hi Maia,

          You should be seeing the $4 in your account 48 hours after submitting your receipts! We always verify before we credit. Thanks for being a Makeena shopper!

  10. Mel

    Thanks! I hope this app does well. I miss the produce offers on Ibotta & Ckout51.

    just an fyi, setting your birthday is a real PIA. should at least offer a drop down menu for the year or a way to type it in. Twice I hit ok by mistake, and had to start over. scrolling back to the 70’s isn’t fun!

    • Karen with Makeena

      Thanks for the feedback Mel! We’ll definitely pass that on to our development team to see if we can improve it!

  11. Donna

    Am I correct in thinking that if I use someone’s referral code to sign up I cannot use this referral code to also get the $4+$1 bonus credit?
    In other words are we able to use multiple codes and still get the total of $5 in bonus credit?

    • Karen with Makeena

      Hi Donna – The extra $4 bonus is only for users who use H2S’s referral code MJWEMC. To receive the bonus, submit your first receipt by Feb 7th. If you use someone else’s referral code, you will only earn $1. Let me know if you still have any questions! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Katie

    Not to be Debbie Downer, but skeptical of this app. It is Shrink reincarnated, and I was never paid out from when they shut down, esp after rushing to make sure I had sufficient threshold to cash out. Ended up being money and effort wasted.

    • Karen with Makeena

      Hi Katie – We are really sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with Shrink. Makeena has been around since 2012 and we are not Shrink. Makeena bought some of Shrink’s technology. We appreciate you giving us a try and becoming a Makeena Shopper!

  13. Donna

    Katie this is why I only purchase items I would have purchased had I not had the app.
    This way if I’m paid, fine. If not I would have purchased those same items anyway.

    • Karen with Makeena

      ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!

  14. Pam

    Might have to give this a try, although Katie’s warning is food for thought. Hopefully it will be legit and beneficial. Thanks for the info.

    • Karen with Makeena

      We are totally legit! We’ve been around since 2012 and also own the site, which has been around since 2010. Thank you so much for signing up.

      You rock!

      • Sara

        I am a new user, entered the code above and had my first item approved and the funds put in my account but the bonus did not show up. Any advice on what to do next? Thanks for any help!

        • Karen with Makeena

          Hi, Sara, please send an email to and we’ll help!

          Thanks for signing up!


  15. Brianna

    Itโ€™s not a new app; Iโ€™ve had it for a couple years now. But itโ€™s great that thereโ€™s an extra bonus for new accounts!

    • Karen with Makeena

      Yes, you are correct! We’ve been around for a while, but we restructured our app to make it more of what you all wanted. We spoke with thousands of people! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Donna

    Sorry, no clue why my post went out 4 times? ๐Ÿ™

    • Karen with Makeena


    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      No worries! I was able to remove the extras! Thanks!

  17. Donna

    Amber, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome!

  19. Kathleen

    Thank you! As a Celiac family that is also dairy free, I haven’t found many rebate apps that help with food costs for the foods we buy. This app has tons of foods we buy due to our food restrictions. Saving $ on the foods that usually costs more is a blessing! Thank you!

    • Karen with Makeena

      Yay!!! <3

  20. Donna

    I’m hoping more new users will help Makeena expand and will be able to add more offers ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Karen with Makeena

      Yes! We are really excited about helping people save money on healthy products manufactured by awesome brands doing good things in the world.

  21. Kay C

    Hi, I have an iPhone so to my understanding I go to the App store on my phone to get this app. How or where to I add the referral code?

    • Ana

      When you fill out your profile information there is a section to add a referral code.

      • Kay C

        Thank you!

  22. KED

    Thanks, I am trying to buy more organic .

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Youโ€™re welcome!

  23. nikki

    I can’t install it. Says error code -505 whatever that means. ๐Ÿ™

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Maybe wait a moment and try back again Or maybe try restarting your mobile device. Hoping that helps!

    • Karen with Makeena


  24. Dee

    I installed the app and redeemed an offer as well. I have not received the bonus $4

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi there! You will need to make your first purchase in order to redeem the $4. The credit can take up to 2 days to show up in your account. Hope that helps!

      • Dee

        Hi Amber !! I confirm to have received the bonus $4 today morning. Thanks a ton for referring to such awesome app. My husband always prefers organic produce, this saves a lot for us!!

        • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          SWEET! You’re most welcome! Thanks so much for taking a moment to leave an update Dee! We sure do appreciate it!

  25. Amanda

    I did not receive the $4 bonus for using the referral code in the original post. I am a new user, I updated my profile to receive the $1 credit, and my receipt for organic spinach was approved for $.50. I only show $1.50 in my acct…

    • Sara

      Iโ€™m in the same boat as you Amanda. My receipt was approved and that amount was put in my account but no bonus though I am a first time user and entered the code above. Hmm…

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Amanda! The credit can take up to two days to show up in your account. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • amanda

        Thanks for following up!

        • amanda

          Just checked my account and the bonus is now there! Thanks!

          • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

            Woohoo! You’re very welcome!

  26. KerRI

    Well @karen frame u keep saying after the receipt is approved and uploaded the $4 credit will appear. Plz explain how come all these ppl keep commenting about not seeing the credit and u have not responded as to y… u only comment on how u would take the steps to get the credit and AGAIN ppl keep saying its not appearing !! Forgive me for being rude but that seems….

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      It appears that the credit can take up to 48 hours to appear in your account. Hoping it shows up for you soon!

  27. Terresa D.

    I just wanted to say that the $4 credit was in my account this morning after uploading my first receipt last night. Their customer service was super fast responding to an issue I had yesterday with a Lundberg product that wasn’t scanning. I was credited my rebate within a couple of hours.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks a bunch for your update! Glad the credit appeared in your account today! ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. Lacy

    What stores is this valid at? I only shop at Costco, Also, and Sprouts and Aldi normally isn’t acceptes on these apps

    • Karen with Makeena

      Hi, Lacy, as long as you purchased a product associated with an offer, you can redeem after purchase at ANY store, even online! You just need to scan the UPC and take a snapshot of the receipt and we match it on the backend. If the receipt is valid, you will earn the $4 bonus. Allow us 48 hours for processing.

  29. Amanda

    Won’t let me register. Why?

    • Karen

      Did you get signed up yet?

  30. Hannah

    Oh no!! I just found your post today. Is there any chance they might extend the deadline? Pretty please?

    • Karen Frame

      Hi, send us an email to, and we’ll add you for the extra $4 bonus – but you also have to redeem a CPG product offer by Sunday!

  31. Lisa A.

    I see someone else asked to extend the deadline. Do you know if that happened? I am just reading this post today an would love to join

    • Karen Frame

      Hi, send us an email to, and we’ll add you for the extra $4 bonus – but you also have to redeem a CPG product offer by Sunday!

  32. Erica

    I saw an interview on YouTube in which Karen Frame said we can redeem our Amazon purchase too. Would we take a screenshot of the Amazon receipt?

    • Karen Frame

      Yes, that is correct!

  33. Bobby Thorton

    Just stumbled upon this! Thanks for the write up! If anyone new used referral code QQAPSM for $1 bonus
