Using a money saving app on your Android or iPhone can make it cool to be frugal! I know there are hundreds of thousands of great apps out there, but I have narrowed it down and think these 4 apps will help you save money in a variety of ways.
Grocery IQ is a free app available on Android and iPhone. This app works on the premise that shopping from a list saves you money by eliminating impulse purchases. Grocery IQ does much more than provide you with a mobile grocery list. You can get in and out of the store in an efficient manner by organizing your list by
isles. It also lets you scan and record favorite items for future reference. Coupons, sorted by isle or brand, helps you trim costs.
Check Please is not free, but available for 99 cents and is well worth the mention. This app is much more that a tip calculator. Do you have a friend whose math impairment leaves you with an unfair share of the bill most of the time? This app helps divvy up the bill among multiple diners and even helps you skip tipping on sales tax.
GasBuddy is available for Android and iPhone. GasBuddy is a simple but popular app that lists gas prices based on the user’s location. It provides you with real time prices for cheap gas in your area. This app really works, as long as you don’t drive across town to save those few pennies per gallon.
Coupon Sherpa is the first mobile coupon app with coupons to hundreds of stores. It is available for both Android and iPhone users. This app allows you to take advantage of in-store merchant discounts, without the hassle of clipping or printing coupons. There are even special coupons available only for app users. To redeem coupons, the cashier simply scans a bar code from your phone or enters the provided numeric code.
