There’s no doubt that times are tough, and with the festive season around the corner, everyone is trying to save money where they can. To help make your life a little easier, and your wallet a little fatter, we’ve rounded up five of the top money saving apps.
If you want to see your money all in one place, this app is for you. 22Seven is a free budgeting and investing app that helps you manage your money more easily and invest it smartly. Link your cards, accounts, loans and rewards, track your spending habits, and set your personalised budget, based on your spending. You’ll know exactly how much you’re spending and what you’re spending it on every month. You can even make low-cost and tax-free investments — all within the app.
- Stocard and Wallet
Stay organized with Stocard (Android) and Wallet (Apple App Store). Stocard and Wallet works with a bar-code scanner that allows you to scan your cards. Once the cards have been scanned, they will then upload automatically onto the interface. You can also manually upload any cards that aren’t listed in the options menu by typing in the card’s number. All your cards will be in one place and easy to use with just a click of the button. After all, loyalty cards allow you to save quite a bit when you tally up all your cash backs.
Gone are the days of trawling through websites comparing products so that you can shop at the store that offers you the best deal. Instead, you can get the Pricecheck app to do all the hard work for you. The price comparison app lets you compare thousands of products, from flights to tech. Even better, if you see something you like in store, simply scan the barcode and the app will tell you if you can buy it somewhere else cheaper.
- The Entertainer
An annual fee gives you access to almost 2000 buy-one-get-one-free offers from restaurants, spas, hotels, activities and even some clothing stores. You don’t need to change your lifestyle to save, just using this app helps.
Tracking money is a fairly straightforward process—you just have to write down everything you spend. But if you have ever tried to do it before, you know that it can be very frustrating with the wrong tools. Monefy understands this and has simplified the process for entering transactions to make it quick, easy, and painless. So, next time you buy coffee or take a taxi, fill in the expense amount and hit “Add”. That’s it! One click and done. Tracking your money has never been so quick and easy. Once you know exactly where you’re spending your money, it’ll be easier to identify opportunities to save and cut back on unnecessary expenditure.
