But if you own a smartphone, you can download certain apps to help you save cash when you’re out and about. Not only are these money-saving apps easy to use, but they also live in your phone and are easily accessible! Here are some of our favorites that no consumer should leave home without:
- Skype. If you’re a frequent world traveler or have friends and family living in other countries, Skype is a must-have app for international calling. Long-distance rates are no joke.
- RedLaser. Want to make sure you’re getting the best deal on a certain product? Just use RedLaser to scan the product’s barcode and see what other retailers are selling it for.
- GasBuddy. Since gas prices can vary up to 20 cents per gallon in some areas, GasBuddy helps you find the cheapest gas prices in your area with one tap of your finger.
