10 money saving apps I use

I love when I can save money when walking, eating out or simply working out 🙂

The recently discovered android apps which save me money or sometimes earn me money are:

  1. Shopmium – I use this FEE app frequently. Download it and see the products you can get cashback for in the app. If unsure if the product you find in a shop qualifies for ashopmium app cashback scan its bar code. Then once you buy it scan the bar code again and upload the recite prooving the purchase. Once the claim has been validated you will have cashback credit in your PayPal or bank account in a space of 1-3 days. Read more about shopmium here.

GreenJinn2. GreenJinn – another FFEE superb app saving you money on grocery shopping. It works a bit differently to Shopmium as here you choose the products featured for a cashback and then once you get them to submit an image of the receipt.

That’s how I make the most of the above apps – a total saving of 52%  🙂

#waitrose #groceryshoppingonabudget so I spent £22.09 but with #mywaitrosecard the paper £2. 20 and cappuccino £2.20 are #free. Then I had £4 off voucher from waitrose(on shopping of value of £20+)which I get regularly. This means I saved £8.4. Furthermore I got the Gallo rice n grains which normally cost £2.00 each but now are for £0.5 when you use @greenjinnapp so another £3 saved which means my basket did not cost £22.09 but £10.69. #waitrose doesn't have to be expensive and look I actually got a very expensive salmon as its a wild one. Overall savings in this basket mean I eat posh n healthy yet for a fraction of the price! Yay. Love #optimisedshopping #optimise #savemoney #thriftyshopping #healthythriftygroceries

3. Sweatcoinbrilliant app, tracking outdoor movements. Sweatcioin gives you 1 sweat coin for 1000 steps. Check out how long you need to sweat for a sensible reward other than being fit and healthy 🙂

4. AA Parking (£1.99) – this app is worth the £1.99 it costs as it gives you a list of free and paid parking spots in the UK and Ireland, real-time parking space updates and opening hours and the cheapest prices.

5.ZIPZERO – turns any of your UK store receipts into cash! Download the free ZIPZERO app and take photos of your receipts.  Your ZIPZERO account will then be credited with 1% of the transaction value. The upper limit of cash reward from them is £50 per month, but that means you would have to spend £5000 in one month in shops to reach this level of spending, so that’s pretty impossible for most of us!

6. O2 Priority

Find free stuff & deals from your local stores. We’ve picked up free Coca-Cola, chocolates, dictionaries, car screen wash, Christmas cards and more besides. If you’re not already with O2 you can simply order a free SIM card and pop it into your phone to download the app.

9. WEQ4U

Make free calls to geographic and ‘08’ numbers. This app also waits on hold for you and calls you back once you’re through to an operator.
