The following Money Saving Mobile  2014 are the Top Apps on the market that we here at Closet of Free Samples know of to help save you money while you're out on the go! We live in a day where there’s really no excuse to neglecting to save money. Whether everyone is working, not working, whatever the excuse - money is tight these days and everywhere.  Not only do we have the traditional form of savings through a wide variety of insert and printable coupons readily available to us, we also have many new and exciting mobile “apps” you can download to your smartphones for a simple way to save money!

 

It would be impossible (for me at least) to master every single mobile savings app there is out there, however if you can take advantage of even just one, I think you’re doing pretty good!  Have fun with it and involve your family.  If your child or teenager really has been nagging you for a smartphone, tablet, iPad, etc., agree they will get one if they commit to using their smartphone to help save the family money. 

 

Here is our list of the Top Money Saving Mobile Apps for 2014:

 

::Ibotta App

 

Ibotta is a fun and easy way to earn money each time you go shopping. The more you use it, the better and more personalized your offers become.  Here’s how you use Ibotta:

 

  • Before shopping, choose your products and complete the tasks. The more you complete, the more cash you’ll earn.
  • Buy your chosen products at over 50 retailers nationwide. They are adding new stores all the time.
    Verify your purchases by uploading a photo and scanning the product’s barcode.
  • Yes, real money in your Ibotta account that you can send to a PayPal account or turn it in for a gift card.

 

If you haven’t done it already, be sure to download your Free Ibotta App

 

::SavingStar App

 

SavingStar is a great way to save big money on your groceries and pharmacy store purchases.  They are the first and only national, fully-digital grocery eCoupon rewards service. There is nothing to clip and nothing to print. We post new SavingStar eCoupons regularly so be sure to heck out the newest eCoupons here!  Here’s how you can use SavingStar:

 

  • Once you are registered you will have to set up your store loyalty cards.
  • Select the eCoupons you like and link them to your store loyalty cards.
