Shopping could get complicated if you’re the type of person who’s always after the lowest prices and the best deals. And with so many websites to look through, even online shopping could become tedious when it should otherwise be streamlined. Thankfully, though, there are some handy shopping tools that let you do things like search all Craigslist cities, and there are also apps that you could download in order to rest assured that you’re always shopping smart. Check out the five apps below and consider using them the next time you need to make a purchase.


Dosh is an app that is available on both iOS and Android devices and it focuses on giving you cash back and credit card rewards. It is easy to use and removes the need for discount codes, coupon cutting, and receipt scanning, so that you can enjoy a more automated process. Basically, you connect a credit or debit card to the app and, when you buy something, the app immediately scans for coupons, codes, and promotions to apply to your order. You get cash back that can then be transferred to your PayPal or bank account, or to a charity of your choosing.


If you hate clipping coupons, you will love Ibotta. This app supplies you with cash back when you make a purchase. All you have to do is scan your barcodes and receipts once you get home. Then the app, which is supported by large retailers that include Walmart and Jamba Juice, to name just two, will give you the savings that you are after.


The RetailMeNot website is hugely popular, but did you know that there is also an app for Android and iOS that you could download? The app is a convenient place to get access to coupons and discount codes for over 50,000 retailers. Search for the most popular deals at the moment, get personalized offers, and save your list of favorites with ease. Plus, the convenient search feature makes it easy to locate the best discount for your needs every time you shop.


Another app that is available on iOS and Android platforms is the Slickdeals app, which collects all of the very best deals that are currently available from a variety of retailers, so that you could gain access to them in one place. How convenient! Whether you are searching for groceries, clothes, electronics, or anything else, Slickdeals has you covered. The front page also has featured deals, and you could even set it to give you deal alerts.  

Coupon Sherpa

If you like using coupons to save money, you will love the Coupon Sherpa app, which you could get on iOS and Android. Use this app to access hundreds of coupons that you could use at top retail locations. You could sort the coupons by favorites, product categories, brands, and locations, and you just show the coupons to cashiers to get the discounts.

With these handy apps, you could make your shopping experience even easier, as well as even more affordable. So what are you waiting? Give these apps a try today to start saving!
