Awesome Apps!

You’re at the store and you reach into your purse for your coupons … and you remember that they are still at home sitting on the printer!! Ahhh!! This has happened to me SO.MANY.TIMES! Don’t panic, just whip out your smart phone and all is right with the world again!

Below is a list of my favorite and the most-used apps on my phone. I hope they help you save some beans!

Free Apps

groceryiqGrocery IQ: I love this app because I can use it on my laptop, phone, and iPad. It lets you create grocery lists for all the stores you shop. You can easily add items by typing in the item name or scanning the item’s barcode. If there are coupons available for an item you have added, or a similar item, it will notify you so you don’t miss any savings! Print out your manufacturer coupons and head to the store!

Cartwheel by Target: This app is awesome because there are SO many coupons! You can browse all of the available coupons online or on your phone. And when you are in-store use this app to scan the items in your cart to make sure you are not missing any little bit of savings! You can combine Cartwheel savings with mobile coupons, Target printed coupons, and with manufacturer coupons!
Stop & ShopStop & Shop: I like this app because they now offer “clippable” coupons! All you have to do is clip the coupons in the app and they will come off at the register when you present your shopper rewards card (which can also be scanned from the app!). I have doubled my savings here since using this app! I can also see the weekly circular and create a shopping list from it and keep track of my gas points and A+ school rewards.

Out and About Savings

ddDunkin’ Donuts: When you’re sitting in the drive-thru lane, grab your phone and check to see what offers are available at your local DD. Almost always a great deal waiting for you!
keyringKey Ring: Love the store card savings, hate the store cards?? Me too! I had SO MANY hanging from my keys I think the weight of them wore out my ignition!

At the stores I was always fumbling to search through them all. I found this awesome app and I love it! You scan the barcode on your rewards card and that’s it! I use this app all the time and people on line behind me always ask me about it ;-) Will save you so much time and hassle! As an added bonus, my keychain is so nice and light now too!

retailmenot-app-iconRetail Me Not: Cannot tell you how much $$ this app has saved me! When my email is empty, my online searches are fruitless and my mailman hasn’t brought me goodies, I check this app and can almost always save a little $ wherever I am!

The one you might throw out or the one you might look through and find a few coupons that you put on the fridge and then you go somewhere and you think “Hey, didn’t I have a coupon for this place?”. Well, this app can help you out in those situations. It has definitely saved us $$ at our favorite restaurants! Save on delicious meals, car repairs, and more with this handy app!
