A savvy shopper can always use a little help getting organized and finding the best deals, especially during the holiday season—which is right around the corner! Fortunately, I’ve found some wonderful apps, available for both Android and iPhone, which make it easier than ever to save time and money, and make your shopping trips relaxing and fun all year round.
Google Keep is my go-to for capturing unique ideas and keeping them organized in a thoroughly modern way. I use it to create notes and shopping lists right on my smartphone, then organize them by categories, add photos or drawings to the list, and even share them by text or email. I can set reminders, and check off tasks as I complete them. And by using Google Keep, I’ve emptied my pockets and purse—they’re no longer overstuffed with hastily scribbled, easy-to-misplace handwritten lists!
Another app offering unbeatable modern convenience is Flipp. It’s a one-stop shop for all of your local circular ads and coupons, which you can search by store, brand, or category. You’ll never miss out on the best deals—Flipp even sends reminders about expiring deals, new offers, or any updated specials at your favorite stores. You can also scan your loyalty cards to keep them all in one handy spot, then use the cards and any coupons you’ve saved at the checkout counter just by showing your phone.
Have you ever found an item in a store and wondered if you should buy it now, or wait to see if there’s a better deal out there somewhere? The ShopSavvy Scanner provides the perfect solution. It lets you scan barcodes, then compare prices on the item at other retailers, including online options. If you choose to save items that you scan, you can purchase them through the app or get an email reminder to shop for them later on. You’ll also get an alert if the price drops on anything you’ve scanned and saved.
Stay ahead of the game, and enjoy all the best deals whether you’re out bargain hunting on Black Friday or shopping online from the comforts of home. These apps deliver the convenience of having your shopping lists, loyalty cards, and coupons together in one place, plus give you the ability to find the best price on almost anything you’re shopping for—right from your smartphone. That’s a deal you simply can’t beat!
