4 Mobile Apps that will Help you Save on Christmas!
Thanks to our smart phones, holiday shopping is getting easier and easier. We can make shopping lists, send a quick text to find out what to buy for dinners and gifts, and look up the best places to buy what we need. Apps also make it easier to save money on holiday related purchases!
Below, you'll find four of the best apps that will help you save money this Christmas!
This app is sometimes seen as the best way to get the lowest price when you are out shopping. It lets you quickly scan barcodes on products to learn where you should buy – whether it be the store you are in, one nearby (which ShopSavvy can find with your phone's GPS), or an online merchant. If a website has the best deal, you can make a purchase on your phone right in the ShopSavvy app!
iBotta lets you earn cash back on many common purchases that you will make though the holidays. The app once had mostly groceries on it, but now the offers have expanded to include clothing, automotive, electronics, and more. To help you with your holiday shopping, you could get food for dinners or shop for gifts at places like Sports Authority, LOFT, eBags.com, and Shutterfly.com.
With iBotta, you buy what you normally would, scan your receipt, and get a rebate in your account within 24 hours. Once you are ready to cash out, you can do so via PayPal or get a gift card (which you could use as a gift!).
For those that love to shop for Christmas gifts on eBay, downloading its mobile app is a must! Not only can you browse and purchase items right from your phone, you can also keep a check on watched items or auctions that are about to end when away from your computer.
If you set up notifications, the app will alert you when you've been outbid or an auction is about to close, so you can get in a last minute bid!
One of the top coupon apps, this mobile app is a must for those looking for the best deals on Christmas shopping. RetailMeNot offers the hottest coupons and discounts right to your smart phone. Plus, you can set your favorite retailers and be alerted when new coupons are added for them. Talk about never missing a good deal!
