5 Best Apps
For Grocery Savings
A smart phone is one of the most expensive gadgets you own. Put it to good use by letting it
help you save money wherever and whenever it can. Apps are the solution to this, and here are 5 apps that can help
you save money on your groceries.
1. Checkout51 shows you a weekly list of offers that allows you to
get cash back on both grocery and non-grocery items. It takes a little bit of work on your part, but it does
have its rewards. Examples are: $1.00 back on Oreo Cookies, $2.00 back on Special K Cereal. These savings mount
up. When your total reaches $20, the company sends you a check (which you can then deposit in your savings
2. Favado notifies you when your favorite items are on sale. It also
provides the sales price, secret sales and links to coupons you can print out. It's a little more
cumbersome to use since you can't print coupons from your phone., but it's a great planning tool.
3. iBotta is another app that gets you cash back on items that you
already buy. It's a little quirky since you have to perform a task (take a survey, watch a video, play trivia,
etc.) in order to get your rebate. Once you've gone through all the requirements, your savings are held until
they reach $5.00 and then deposited into your Paypal or Venmo account.
4. Substitutions doesn't save you money like the other apps do,
but it can save you from pulling your hair out as it gives you food items you can substitute in place of a
missing food item or the wrong food item. An example is: What can you substitute for baking powder in
a recipe? This is a must-have app for all of you wannabe gourmet cooks.
5. GroceryIQ is perhaps the tops grocery shopping app. It is also
available online. It has millions of items in its database. You can customize your list for the way you do your
shopping at one store or multiple stores. If you divide your shopping between different family members, you can
share the shopping list or lists and sync between devices. There's more to this app than meets the eye.
