6) Use Apps
We know there’s an overwhelming amount of shopping apps out there. It’s difficult to know which one is beneficial and which one is a complete waste of time. Unfortunately, you typically don’t discover you’ve downloaded a spammy app until after you’ve spent the time to register and test it. It’s a waste of time and becomes discouraging. Fear not! Here are a few of the most reputable shopping apps out there: ShopSavvy is a goldmine when it comes to price comparisons between instore and online retailers including Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and Walmart. Just scan the barcode while you’re out shopping and see where the best deal on that item (or items like it) are hiding. We also like Flipp for weekly discount ads and coupons on big name brands like Tide, Pantene, Crest, and Bounty. You’ll receive weekly ads for specials from hundreds of retailers. Shopping made easy.
