Free Apps That Save You Money
The holiday season is here which means it’s easy to lose track of your finances. Use these helpful apps to help you stay on track:
Onavo Count tells you how much of your data each of your apps is using up.
Why we like it: There are no more guessing games when it comes to data consumption. Leaving your data usage per app up to speculation makes it difficult to make sense of your overall data usage. Onavo Count gives you a weekly usage update so you know exactly how much data your individual apps are using.
Use it if: You frequently hit your data cap and want to try and trim down your usage.
Supported devices: iPhone / iPad
RedLaser allows you to compare prices of products across several stores to see if there’s a better deal. Simply scan the item you wish to compare and the app will shoot back prices from competing stores, both physical and online.
Why we like it: RedLaser makes comparing prices easy and gives you peace of mind that you’re getting the lowest price. Some stores even offer the option of buying the product directly from the app.
Use it if: You want the best deal possible, and don’t mind going to a couple of different stores when grocery shopping, for example.
Supported devices: iPhone / iPad / Android / Windows Phones
GasBuddy allows you to find the cheapest gas in your neighborhood while on the go. Gas prices are being constantly updated by users of the app, ensuring the most accurate prices.
Why we like it: For every gas price you report, you get points and can win $250 worth of gas every week.
Use it if: You find yourself travelling a lot and don’t mind going a little further to snag the best deal.
Supported devices: iPhone / Android / Blackberry
