Gas Buddy – It never fails that gas seems to jump up in price right when I need it. This FREE app will alert you of when prices start to rise in your area and will point you in the right direction of where the cheapest gas is in town.
Old Nave SnapAppy – For the avid Old Navy shopper, this app is simple enough to use. All you have to do is snap a picture of any Old Navy logos and win free prizes!
SwagbucksTV App – Who doesn’t like to make money watching TV? With this app, all you have to do is watch TV from your phone and earn 2 Swagbucks for every 5 videos you watch. The catch is that you can only earn 50 Swagbucks per day.
RetailMeNot – Couponing seems to be the latest fad taking over, but for those of us that don’t like to go that extreme but are trying to save money, this is the app for you. Get the best coupons available, alerts to your favorite stores at the mall, and several online and in-store coupons.
Ibotta – While this app actually requires you to make a purchase, the return on what you can earn is well worth it. Simply sign up and download the app then choose what items you are planning on buying. Then you just click on the earning opportunities, watch the videos, take the surveys or read the information and quickly add cash to your bank account. Once you buy the product, snap a picture of your receipt and the cash will be added to your account. Finally, transfer the money to your PayPal account whenever you want to cash out.
Jingit – This app pays you to watch advertisements online. Similar to Ibotta, you can also earn money by downloading the app, going to the Walmart, and answering a couple questions about the items you’ve scanned, no purchase necessary.
ShopKick – This free app rewards you for just walking into your favorite stores, nothing more required from you. Who is every opposed to that?
Price Match – While this isn’t an “app”, it is always best to do this before making any purchases at stores that offer price matching. Take the extra few seconds to see if you can save some money and feel good about not having to dip into your savings account to make a purchase.
