When you’re a college student, saving money is an essential way to survive. From morning coffee to saving on everyday items, every bit of savings counts. If you like shopping, some of these apps will be for you. Here are 10 apps that are guaranteed to save you money.
If you are a target addict (I think most of us are), then this app is for you. This app contains weekly deals on furniture, groceries, school supplies and clothes. This app is easy to use because all you have to do is add the deals that you would like to use and then apply them to checkout. Since target is a one stop shop for essentials this app will surely save you big bucks in the long run.
As you know honey is sweet and this extension can get you some pretty “sweet” deals. If you are an avid online shopper, this will save you the hunt for coupon codes. All you have to do is download this onto your computer and press the extension logo to apply any eligible coupon codes.
Some people have money spending problems. This app is not the cure all to saving money, but it sure helps. This app suggests how much you should save based on your salary and then distribute the rest of your money into “envelopes.” Every time part of your budget is used, the envelope frowns. No one wants a sad envelope! The best part is the pie chart that can be seen to see where most of your money is spent.
Everyone has an opinion and this app pays you for yours. QuickThoughts asks you a series of questions and feeds you a survey. Each survey you do has a certain amount of money attached to it. Later, the money can be redeemed for iTunes giftcards. It’s basically free money!
- Gas Buddy
If you are driving a car on campus, the cost of gas can really add up. Gas Buddy helps you save money by seeking out the lowest gas prices in your area. If you spot a good deal somewhere you can also make others aware of this money saving opportunity.
At Walgreens you can fill prescriptions, develop photos or buy other things to accommodate your needs. This app allows you to track your walgreens rewards for purchases, gives you coupons and fill prescriptions with a click of a button. This is convenience at its finest.
Almost every week money is spent somewhere. With Shopular, you have coupons and are notified about weekly deals from stores like Target, Walmart and Best Buy. This app is best from extreme couponers at heart who are too lazy to actually put in the time and effort to cut out coupons.
Calling all beauty lovers! The Ulta app is an online shopping app and it can also be used to access ulta points and weekly coupons. So stock up on your favorite makeup, fragrances and skincare while getting good savings.
Having clothes that you don’t wear anymore can be confusing. What can you do with them? Depop is a great place for fashion lovers to buy, sell and even trade fashion items. What’s great is that you can set your own price points, negotiate with potential buyers and rate your experience after buying or selling a product.
- Nordstrom Rack
Designer clothes can be great quality, but not friendly for a college budget. With Nordstrom Rack, designer items can be bought at a discounted price. The great thing about Nordstrom stores is that returns are hassle free. So boujee shopaholics, spend till your heart’s content…or until your bank account cries.
Enjoy college to its fullest while still saving money. So have fun and happy savings!
