We are in the age of cell phones. Almost everyone had one, we carry them with us everywhere and they cost a fortune! Now let's get some of that money back by putting them to work for us! There are many apps that will save you money (or make you money!) These money-saving phone apps will help you save money on groceries, gas, atm fees, and more!
These apps are all free to use but some do have a pro versions that you can pay for. I have the free version of them since I don't like to pay money if I don't have to!

I have started using MPoints & Mplaces. You accrue MPoints for playing games and can then redeem points or purchase chances at sweepstakes. MPlaces, you check in when you are at many retailers and spin to earn more points.
