Apt to Save

Cut costs by tapping into these free savvy-shopper applications.

Turn your iPhone, Android or Windows Phone into a bar code scanner that will price-check retail items against nearby competitors or online. You can even buy from the competitors on your phone, and your purchase will be ready when you arrive. Shop smarter and faster.


Whether you’re an extreme couponer or an amateur, this Apple and Android freebie is an easier way to take advantage of all that junk mail. Rather than breaking out the scissors for tedious clipping, just snap a photo of the deal and redeem it off your screen. Scan, save and redeem all on your mobile phone.


Using your Apple device, find the highest-rated products in any category, learn whether their price is trending up or down, or whether a new, better version of the item is expected out soon. You’ll also receive alerts if the cost of the item you like drops. Shop with confidence.

There are apps to help you organize and make sense of your finances, too. Read about them on SUCCESS.com.
