Savvy shoppers know that with a little planning, they can earn cash back or rewards almost every time they shop.

From shopping through cash-back websites such as Rakuten to using discounted gift card websites like Raise, there are endless ways to save.

Shopping the right stores also can save you cash. Following are retailers that reward you every time you hand over your green.

1. Ace Hardware

Sign up for Ace Rewards, and you’ll get 10 points for every dollar you spend on most purchases. Accumulate 2,500 points, and you’ll earn a $5 reward.

You also receive member-only offers.

2. AutoZone

Join AutoZone Rewards, and you’ll earn a $20 reward after every five purchases of $20 or more. You also get a $5 bonus reward just for signing up.

3. Best Buy

Join the My Best Buy program, and you’ll earn half of a point for every dollar spent. Once you hit 250 points, you get a $5 reward.

Rewards increase as you spend. For instance, if you make $1,500 in purchases during a calendar year, you’ll become an “elite” member and earn 1 point for every dollar you spend.

Spend $3,500 in a calendar year, and you become an “elite plus” member with a rate of 1.25 points for every dollar you part with.

As an elite or elite plus member, you’ll also enjoy other benefits, such as free shipping with no minimum purchase requirement.

4. CVS

Sign up for the ExtraCare rewards program, and you’ll score 2% back on CVS purchases. Rewards typically are paid out four times a year — in January, April, July and October.

However, it’s worth noting that you must spend $50 per earning period — or otherwise earn at least $1 in ExtraBucks Rewards — to get your rewards. Also, some items at CVS — including prescriptions and copays — do not qualify for the 2% back, according to the ExtraCare frequently asked questions page.

5. Dick’s Sporting Goods

Members of the Dick’s ScoreCard program get 1 point for every dollar they spend. With 300 points, you get a $10 reward.

ScoreCard members also enjoy exclusive coupons.

6. Kohl’s

Enroll in Kohl’s Rewards, and you’ll earn 5% Kohl’s Rewards on your purchases. You’ll also receive a special gift on your birthday and opportunities to earn bonus points.

7. Office Depot/Office Max

Sign up for Office Depot/Office Max Rewards, and you’ll get 2% back in rewards on purchases.

Spend $500 within a 12-month period, and you’ll earn VIP status. That gets you 5% back in rewards on ink, toner, paper and copy/print/ship services.

VIP status also gets you free shipping with no minimum purchase requirement and a gift on your birthday.

8. Petco

Pets can be expensive, but you can keep them from taking a bite out of your wallet by joining Petco’s Pals Rewards program. Members get 1 point for every dollar they spend and a $5 reward once they reach 100 points.

9. Staples

Members of Staples Rewards earn either 2% or 5% back on in-store purchases, depending on how much they spend in a 12-month period.

Members also get $2 back in rewards per recycled ink cartridge, and other perks.

10. Target

Join the Target Circle loyalty program, and you will earn 1% on all eligible purchases in stores or online. You can apply the earnings to future Target purchases.

11. Ulta Beauty

Join Ulta’s Ultamate Rewards program, and you will earn 1 point for every dollar you spend. Once you reach 100 points, you will be eligible to redeem them for $3 off your next purchase.

Members get even more back if they accumulate more points before redeeming them. For example, 2,000 points earns you $125 off your next purchase.

Big spenders can achieve Platinum or Diamond status. These members earn 1.25 points or 1.5 points for every dollar spent, respectively, among other perks.
