Who doesn’t love a good, deep discount? I sure do! Well, how would you feel if I told you that your phone could be your key to a world of savings?
With just about everyone having some kind of smart phone nowadays, it’s so easy to save money. You don’t need to clip any more coupons, all you need to do is go into the Google Play store on an Android phone or the Apple store app on an iPhone and download the RetailMeNot or Shopular app.
All you need to register is an email address and phone number. Once you are registered, you can like your favorite stores and whenever there is a coupon or any kind of discount available, you will receive a notification. It’s that simple.
There are companies such as Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, Joann Fabrics, Macy’s, JC Penny and Bath and Body Works that offer discounts on a weekly basis. Even restaurants such as Red Lobster, Einstein Bagels, Chili’s, Panera Bread, Auntie Annie’s, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Applebee’s and Outback Steakhouse offer discounts on this app.
My personal favorites are Macy’s, Panera Bread and Chili’s. The Macy’s coupon is usually taken away from you if you have a physical copy. But, if you show your digital coupon to the cashier, all that is done is the bar code is scanned. So, that means the coupon is reusable.
Macy’s always offers a $10 off $25 or a $20 off $50 coupon. These coupons have to be some of my favorite ones yet. Additionally, with the holiday’s right around the corner, these types of coupons come in handy.
So, I say download these two apps, and start saving!
