4 Apps That Will Help You Save Money

Before I start this post, I want to assure you this is written from my personal experience. This is not sponsored in any way and I just want to share because I have benefitted from each of these apps. Enjoy!

I love a good sale, coupon code, or gift card. I got it from my Momma! With a long list of other things on our wishlist, picking up the latest decor that hits Target’s shelves every season is not a high priority. Even though the decor just keeps getting better and better.

I have been using these apps to save money for almost 2 years and they have paid off big time. Now, when I see a decor item I “have to have”, I set a goal to save using these apps so then I can turn around and buy the item with a gift card.

1. Cartwheel by TargetI hope you already have the Cartwheel app! I use it every time I go into Target and I have saved $75.00 and counting! Just from scanning things before I checkout. That’s insane! What else is great is you can stack this app with the savings from your Target RedCard…bam!

2. WalmartThe walmart app is so easy to use, you just scan your receipt and it price matches other stores and refunds you the difference on a gift card. I turn around and use this gift card for groceries or home necessities.

3. ShopkickYou know those Instagram advertisements that you think are just a scam? That is how I found out about Shopkick. I actually tried it and so far I’ve gotten $60 worth of gift cards to Target! With that, I’ve bought a round mirror and a lamp…all for just opening the app when I walk in certain stores. You can choose from a long list of gift cards to use your kicks towards.

4. IbottaThis is a lot like the Walmart app, you scan your receipt after you get home and find deals they are offering that match your receipt. I love that Ibotta actually deposits the cash for you, you don’t have to choose a gift card. I easily earned $35 within a couple months of joining!

*Use this link to download Ibotta and you can get $10 with just signing up and unlocking your first product!

I love a good way to save money, and I love a good challenge. These apps turn it into a game for me to only use a gift card to buy these items. You won’t be earning gift cards over night, but if you are patient and diligent then you’ll be able to splurge for that new decor item at Target. I hope you have fun using these apps! What are your favorite apps that help you save?!
