Grocery stores, drug stores, convenience stores, malls, restaurants, airports, airfare, vacations, spas, etc. The list can go on forever when I think of all of the money you can save while you are out and about everyday. These places want you to come to them, they advertise specials and coupons to help you decide! Why not use these resources? Everywhere you go there are savings to know about!! Literally everywhere! I wanted to share my favorite apps that I have on my cell phone that help me save money on the go and at home. I love using these and some of them are literally free money so it is silly not to use them.
My most favorite app is the one I will start with! Retail Me Not!!!! You have to have this on your phone! You can use it on your computer or as a mobile app. I shop a lot at JCPenney and if I don’t have a paper coupon with me, I just open the app and check what coupons are available. I open the coupon on the phone and they scan it right at the register. I use is for Old Navy, Payless shoes, restaurants around town, Hobby Lobby, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Target, etc. They have tons of online and in store deals!! For example, Old Navy is one of my favorite stores and right now they have a $15 off $50 purchase coupon! Can’t beat that! And online shopping you can save 40%. It is one of the best apps!! Try it out! You can even set your location and everywhere you go it will tell you what stores close by have deals. Sign up here!
With Ibotta you earn cash back on everyday purchases you make, you can shop online through the website or by using the app. You download the app, unlock the rebates you are interested in, go shopping at any of the stores listed, verify your purchase by scanning the product and take a picture of your receipt. The cash will be deposited into your account!! They have stores such as Best Buy, Publix, Winn Dixie, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Dollar General, etc!! This app also has lots of savings on pets, apparel, food, travel, restaurants, and electronics. They have a variety of categories to check out the savings potential. Sign up here!

Everyone has heard of Groupon I hope!! Well, I love love love getting deals on Groupon. I use Groupon a lot for travel. We are Annual Passholders for Disney and we are always visiting Orlando. When we stay overnight, I always find some great deals for hotels around the area on Groupon!! Just found one last month for $109 per night and it was next to Downtown Disney! We Could walk there, and it was a perfect location with Downtown Disney on one side and a shopping center, which included restaurants and supermarket off Disney property, on the other end of the street! Found one last year about 5 miles from Disney for $65 per night!! They have everything from mattress, clothing, local businesses, travel and more! Sign up here!
