Holiday shopping can be expensive and exhausting! Wouldn’t it be nice if there were apps to save you time and money? Good news! We’ve found five apps to help you find the best deals, save valuable time, and earn cash-back and rewards. Think it sounds too good to be true? Check them out for yourself:
The EBates app not only gives you access to some great, exclusive coupons, but it also will give you up to 40% cash-back on nearly everything you buy! With promotions and deals at nearly 2,500 stores, both in-person and online, you would be crazy to not give EBates a try. Are you really into online shopping on your desktop or laptop? E-Bates also has a browser tool that will automatically activate cash-back and input discount codes to get you the most bang for your buck.
Who can possibly keep up with all of the sales going on? It’s impossible! We get so many store flyers in the mail. You know the ones — the ones that usually find the trash can as soon as they’re brought inside. Now, finding the best sales and deals is easy with the Flipp app. Flipp allows you to search coupons and flyer deals by store, brand, item, and more. No more shuffling through countless store flyers! While Flipp is excellent at finding the best holiday deals, it’s also great for finding deals on the items you buy every week throughout the year. This app is one to hang onto, even after the holidays.
Did you know you can get free rewards and gift cards from the shopping you already do? Snag a gift card for yourself while you’re buying that jacket for your brother or that perfume for your mom. By spending money through Shopkick, you accumulate points (called “kicks”) and Shopkick will send you a gift card to one of many popular stores. This app can be used online or in-person, and you can even earn extra points by finding and scanning certain items in a fun “scavenger hunt” style game.
Gone are the old-fashioned days of coupon clipping! Clipping coupons can take hours, but with the help of SnipSnap Coupon App, your phone does the clipping for you. All you have to do is find the coupon that you want to use and snap a picture of it. SnipSnap Coupon keeps all of your coupons organized in a digital format, so there’s no more rifling through your purse to find that coupon you need.
