I use these 6 Apps for many occasions because they have helped me save a good amount of money. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to save! I’m sure some of you might know some of these, but to others, these might be a new way to save money. These apps are completely free and straightforward. An excellent way to save money when you shop, travel or just want to save on local activities.

Ibotta is a free app that gives you real cash back when you shop for everyday products. For example, grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, clothing, beauty, mobile shopping and more. I regret not getting it sooner because I have already gotten back a good amount of money through this app. It is very simple to use, you just need to sign up and get the app either on your phone or tablet, then you can start saving! They have different categories like the picture shown above. It is the only app that I know of that offers a variety of grocery stores and other stores for cash back. The money adds up at the end of the month, and it’s nice to see how much you have saved over the months and year! You’d be surprised how much money adds up at the end of the year.
Ebates is the most popular one in my opinion, and I think almost everyone has or knows of this app. It’s ideal for shopping online, and it gives you a certain percentage cash back when you shop online for clothes, makeup, shoes, accessories and much more. It offers coupons and cash back from over 2,000 online retailers. I put a picture of some of the things you can get cash back on Ebates. You get paid quarterly by check or PayPal.
Groupon is a coupon app that saves you money on restaurants, stores, services, events, hotels and local activities. For example, I have used this app to go to a winery, sunset cruise, whale watching and we are even using it to go on vacation for our wedding anniversary this year 🙂 You can get great deals on everything that you order from there. They also have a section where they have coupons that can help you save money on your favorite companies like Amazon, Forever21, Macy’s, Nine West, etc. They consistently update new deals everyday.
Secret Escapes is a Travel Club that offers many luxury hotels for great deals up to 70% off on several different destinations. My husband and I used it to go St. Vincent, we got such an amazing all-inclusive deal in a beautiful resort! I will add a picture here 🙂
If you like traveling and would like to save money, then I would highly recommend Secret Escapes. All you need to do is sign up with your email and search for travel destinations that interest you. It is entirely free, and I also like that you can order online or if you need help you can order over the phone. From my experience, they have excellent customer service!
Living Social is similar to Groupon but has different things to offer that Groupon might not have. That’s why I like using both. I have used this to see the Phantom of the Opera with my husband, and that play can be very expensive but thanks to Living Social we saved a pretty good amount. They have up to 80% off discounts on travels, events, dining, and products.
Cartwheel is a Target Savings App. If you shop at Target, then you will love this app! All you have to do is download the app and sign up. When you go to Target, you scan the products you want to buy, and it will show you if there are any discounts on the products. You can save anywhere from 5-50% off on the items you buy. All you have to do is scan the bar code when you check out and save some money. You can also use it to shop online! You might save some dollars every time you shop, but over the course of the year, you would have saved a good amount.
