I have been using cashback sites to save money in every area. I use a total of 4 cashback sites to get the most back.
Checkout 51:
Checkout 51 gives cashback on groceries, household and personal items. Included in the grocery category is meat, fruits and vegetables. Each Thursday they upload a new set of items to give cashback on. They give 25 cents to $2 back on different items. When you have $20 worth of cash, you are able to redeem a check.

Savingstar:
Savingstar gives cashback on grocery items and online shopping. You can redeem your money once you reach $5. They pay with Paypal and gift cards. Personally, I transfer my funds to my Upromise account to help pay off my loans.
There are some stores that require you to upload a receipt. The rest are based on linking your store card to the Savingstar account. It can take up to 30 days to see your cash in the account.

Ebates:
I love this site. Any and everything can receive cashback on this site. They are always on time with sending the checks to my residence once I have reached the threshold.
Sign up on Ebates, type the store you want to shop at and click on the store. Now that you are on the site you can purchase and receive cash to your Ebates account.
Another perk, is they provide online coupons on their site once you have looked up the store.

Swagbucks:
On the left side bar, you will find Shop underneath Home. Click on that and it sends you to the main Shop page. There you can search for the store you would like to shop at. Under the icon of the store it shows you how much you will receive per purchase. Then you click on it and have fun shopping. It can take a few days to see it show up on your account.

All of these sites have saved me hundreds of dollars. I can use coupons on my purchases and still receive cashback. This is double savings.
Be careful not to over shop. I have caught myself shopping, because my excuse was I am saving money. Spending does not equal saving.
