GIVEAWAY and Review: Zipongo Gift a Meal with $20 Paypal Cash


Zipongo is a website and an app that allows you (you do need to sign up with either Facebook or an email address) to search for discounts and sale prices at grocery stores in your area for healthy food products. You simply enter in your zip code and it brings up a variety of grocery stores. I was very surprised to see every grocery store in my area (with the exception of the natural food co-op) listed.

I had them give me prices for 3 of our nearby grocery stores and could compare prices to see where the best deals where and decided where I wanted to grocery shop this week. There is also a feature to print off coupons, but all my deals were in-store so there were no coupons that I needed to print.

Soon, they will be adding a feature called Zipongo Life that allows for members to personalize health plans, track food, activity and sleep, and track your LifePower.

I am very excited to try out Zipongo Life when it is available for all members. It sounds like something that could be very beneficial to me, especially if it will make recommendations to me based on information I input (I have no idea if it will do this, but that is what I am hoping.)


Have you ever come across a recipe you thought a friend or loved one would love and wanted to send it to them along with the ingredients (or money to buy the ingredients) to make the recipe. Well, now you can!!!! Zipongo is offering one reader the opportunity to do just that with $20 Paypal Cash by using Zipongo Gift-a-Meal.

Check out the Gift-a-Meal I sent for the recipe "Go Home, Pineapple Grand Marnier. You're Drunk." I also sent recipes to other friends that included "Easy Peasy Baked Salmon", "Chunky Cat Barf (or Spaghetti Squash Casserole)" and others.

ONE READER WILL WIN A ZIPONGO GIFT-A-MEAL TO GIVE WITH $20 PAYPAL CASH!!!

I will walk you through how you can Gift-a-Meal:
  • Log-in to Zipongo
  • Click on Zipongo Gift-a-Meal
  • Select the friend you will send it to (I was logged in via FB, so it allowed me to choose any FB friend)
  • Using drop down menus, select a message and a recipe to send
  • Using drop down menu, select an amount to send (you can send "None" which will just send the recipe)
  • Click Next
  • eCard will be posted to their FB wall (make sure you let them know they need to click on the eCard to get any money you have gifted to them, it does not say on their wall that you gifted money to them.)
To Redeem a Gift-a-Meal:
  • Be logged in to your FB account and click on the eCard posted on your wall, it will say if there is a gift amount included once you click on it, it does not say on your wall that there is money included.

Well, I didn't really like that I couldn't choose a recipe. I wanted to send one to my sister, but the only one it showed had scallops in it, and my sister is allergic
