The way people find deals when shopping has changed. For the most part, the days of clipping paper coupons are gone. Now, when you want to save while shopping, you download an app. Here’s a look at some of the best.
Store Brand Apps
If the store you’re shopping in has its own app, that’s usually the best way to go. Retailers like Target, Wegman’s and even Whole Foods incorporate coupons, discounts and sales right into their apps. It makes saving cash relatively seamless.
The Krazy Coupon Lady
Despite its name, The Krazy Coupon Lady is an app you want to have around. As US News reports, the app allows you to set alerts on specific products and brands, so that when they go on sale you know. Krazy Coupon also has a list feature that organizes deals by store.
Coupon Cabin can be used as a web-browser extension or an app. When you use the extension, Cabin alerts you to deals available on the retailer’s site. Perhaps the best part about Cabin is its cash back option: You can get up to 20 percent cash back when you make purchases from its partners.
Flipp is a good app if you share shopping lists with someone, because it syncs the lists across multiple devices. The app collects ads, deals and coupons from more than 2,000 stores and puts them all in one place. Flipp is a solid shopping app for those who want a streamlined deal-finding process.
