Seeking Great Deals

Saving money in today’s world is not only difficult at times but also a struggle. Here are some apps that will help relieve some tension.

Are you a savvy shopper? Do you like finding great deals? Most of us do. For many of us, money doesn’t grow on trees. Apps have become one of the best ways to make additional money. I think that’s why I really like to do some comparisons with various apps and find the best deals possible.

For those folks who are buying a lot online, I have a few suggestions that might help. How many of you have heard of Wikibuy? Well, Wikibuy is a virtual online assistant. When you click on a product and want to buy something, Wikibuy will search automatically to make sure that you are getting the best price. I really like this app because it has saved my pocketbook quite a few dollars along the way. It compares places like WalMart, Target, Ebay, Jet, etc.,, The best part is that it’s completely free to use. As my friend Debbie as always says, “If it’s free, it’s for me.”

The next app is called Honey. I usually run both Honey and Wikibuy to see which one will give me the best deal. Both of them are browser extensions. They both have many identical prices but just like everyone else, they compete. Sometimes, I can find a better discount through Honey and sometimes Wikibuy offers the better discount. It really just depends on what you’re looking for.

Ebates is another favorite of mine. Te commercials aren’t wrong. If you do a lot of online shopping, ebates is one of your best friends. Many times it will offer the same products you may look for and it does give you a percentage in rebate cash back on the items. It’s not good to use if you rarely shop online but if you do a bulk of online shopping, it can be a tremendous asset. is one of my best friends. I used to get the local paper delivered to me until the prices kept going up and the delivery was horrible. The only thing I regret is not being able to get the coupons out of the Sunday paper. makes up for a lot of that problem. They offer great coupons that you can print out from home. I’ve used their coupons on top of great sales in the store and been able to save hundreds of dollars over the years. Every little bit helps.

Couponoholics is another great tool to use. They compare a lot of different stores and upcoming sales at places like WalMart, Target, CVS, etc,. They can tell you upcoming sales where you can get items for very reduced rates and sometimes even free. They have been my go to source for a lot of different things. I love their information.

The last one I’m going to mention is ShopAtHome. This app has several retailers that it uses to show the rebates you can get. For example, right now with VUDU, you can get $2.00 back shopping with the app. As you build up to $20, that’s a quick way to start building each month. I order vitamins a lot too. That’s another type of retailer I can earn money back on. All these savings really add up. I’m sure there are a lot of other resources available but these are the ones I’ve had the most luck with.

Most people don’t have piles of cash lying around. Here’s a few more apps to help you save.

GetUpside is a fantastic receipt program that when you get gas, you can get money back from uploading your receipts. Gas is already expensive. Why not get a little relief when you fill up your tank?

Receipt Hog is one of my favorite receipt loading apps. Unlike Fetch, you can upload receipts for any store and it doesn’t tell you that the receipt isn’t allowed. I’ve been able to upload restaurants, tire changes, gas, clothing, pet stores, home stores, and all kinds of other receipts that Fetch didn’t allow. I use both of these apps. There are things thath I love Fetch for and I love Receipt Hog for. It all depends on your preference and your needs. Either way, you can earn money with both of those apps.

I hope this helps you in your quest to seek those great deals. Watch the circulars, the online ads, and even things in social media to see where and when the best deals are offered. Share them with others. Someone else may need what you find at a great deal. Helping each other to save is a great way to connect with others.
