Stephanie Humphrey: Apps that Can Save You Money Right Now

Unless you just signed the same $100 million dollar contract Michael Vick did recently, you’re probably still feeling the effects of our nation’s recession on your wallet.  We’re all looking for ways to stretch our budget, and there are some great websites and apps that you can download to start saving money right now.  Here are three of my faves:

  • CouponSherpa – This is one of the most comprehensive and most popular money-saving apps out right now.  CouponSherpa has hundreds of coupons and deals for everything you buy including clothing, groceries, restaurants, pet supplies…you get the idea – pretty much everything!  You pick a category and the app tells you what offers are available and where you can get them in your area.  The best part is that you don’t have to cut anything out or remember to take anything to the store with you because all of the coupons can be scanned right from your phone.
  • Kik Messenger – If an unlimited SMS plan is out of your cell phone budget and you find yourself going over your text message limit every month, this is the app for you.  The Kik app allows you to send texts to up to 10 people at once, absolutely free.   WhatsApp Messenger is another similar app that works just as well and is just as free!
  • DrinkSpecials – If you enjoy the occasional happy hour (and who doesn’t?), this app is the coolest way to find out how to celebrate on the cheap in your area.  DrinkSpecials uses Google Maps to locate bars and restaurants wherever you are, and gives you a list of drink and appetizer specials for that day.

So if you’re looking to save a few bucks, these apps can definitely help you to do just that.  And don’t forget, all three are free, so you’re saving money already!

    Great list, thanks! This isn’t an app, but I use a website called ourcouponhome.com that posts dot com deals, grocery ad coupon matchups, etc.
