Money Saving Apps for Your Phone

by David Sung

Most of us are addicted to our phones. From email to games, there’s always something there to grab our attention. But many people overlook a very worthwhile reason to be attached to your cell phone: apps that can save you money. We all try to save money where we can, so don’t let an easy and convenient way slip through the cracks! We’ve compiled some of the best money saving apps you can download on your Android or iPhone so that you can start having a little more cash in your wallet.

Red Laser

One of the reasons people gravitate towards online shopping is the instant price comparison. Red Laser has brought this to your phone. Simply scan an item and the app will give you prices for both online and brick-and-mortar retailers, which is perfect for when you think you remember seeing that on-sale at the store down the road. Red Laser also allows you to buy directly from the app, further removing any hassles.

Platform: iPhone, Android, Windows

Key Ring 

The days of bulky key rings full of plastic royalty cards are long gone with the Key Ring app. This app allows you to join loyalty programs at the touch of a button, as well as store your current loyalty card information within the app. When you’re in the store, you simply have the clerk scan the barcode from your phone. No clutter, no hassle. You can also use the app to have special offers delivered right to your smart phone. Platform: iPhone, Android, Windows, BlackBerry Cost: Free  

Gas Buddy

Gas prices are seemingly always on the rise. With GasBuddy, you can find the best place to fill up at within seconds. The app will help you find out if you should get gas right away, or wait until you’re closer to your destination. Trend charts can also help you get a feel for the market and future prices. You can also upload gas prices yourself to help fellow users, which puts you in the running for great prices. We all spend more on gas than we’d like to know. Using GasBuddy will help you save a few extra dollars.

Platform: iPhone, Android, Windows, BlackBerry

Cost: Free   

Hotel Tonight

For the travelers, Hotel Tonight works with hotels to help you find a hotel room immediately at deep discounts. Hotel Tonight finds empty rooms and allows you to book them right from your phone, perfect for the spontaneous traveler. Hotels would much rather sell a room at discount than have them be empty, which is where Hotel Tonight steps up to the plate. You may never have to book another hotel in advance again!

Platform: iPhone, Android

Cost: Free
