9 Mobile Coupon Apps You Should Have To Save Money While Shopping

9 Mobile Coupon Apps You Should Have To Save Money While Shopping

Clipping coupons is such a chore, but it doesn’t have to be anymore. Much like everything else in life there is an app for that. Now you can view, save, and use coupons all from your mobile device. Leave the hassle out of using coupons and utilize the following apps (and maybe a few extra hacks) to save yourself some cash:

Cartwheel by Target (Free)

Target’s newest app is great for frequent shoppers. You can view all of the latest deals and sales in the app, save up to ten coupons onto your account, and use all of your coupons at once at the register with a simple scan of a bar code provided in the app.

This app requires the user to have a Walgreens card to function. This app even allows the user to refill their prescriptions, so you can save time and money all at once.

      CVS App (Free)

      Much like the Walgreens app, the CVS app allows users to view and use coupons. The CVS app differs from Walgreens, however, because it allows you to actually order products directly from your phone much like an online store. This app requires the users to have a CVS card to use, but if you’re a frequent customer of CVS this is definitely a great investment.

                    1. Visit a strawberry festival

                    Summer is prime time for tasting strawberries. More often than not, an area that grows strawberries will have a strawberry festival. Indulge yourself in strawberry pies, jams, cakes and more!

                    2. Have a picnic

                    Take your partner or your family to the local park and enjoy a relaxing picnic. Designate each person to bring one food item of their choice to add to the fun.

                    3. Camp in your back yard

                      The summer heat can sometimes make it hard to sleep. Why not enjoy the heat outside in the yard? Pitch a tent or gaze into the night sky.

                      4. Take long walks

                      Discover something new where you live. Take the afternoon off from your chores and go for a long walk. You may be surprised by what you discover.

                      5. Break a world record

                      Breaking a world record doesn’t have to be time-consuming. You could even break one on your lunch hour. Give it a go!

                      6. Go on a bike ride

                      The number of bike paths on roads in big cities has increased dramatically over the years. Take advantage, and enjoy the summer breeze.

                      7. Join a gym class

                        The gym is not everyone’s idea of a good time, but why not go with a friend a join a class? Spinning, yoga and step classes are always more fun with friends, and a lot of gyms allow you to pay-as-you-go.

                        8. Find a new hobby

                        The summer is the perfect time to find a new hobby. Serotonin (our body’s natural “happy” hormone) is produced by the sunshine and will be at a yearly high, which is great for when we want to tackle something new.

                        9. Join a sports team

                        Not all sports teams are competitive and require huge amounts of your time. Join in the fun with like-minded people, get fit, stay healthy and make some friends along the way.

                        10. Make a slip ‘n slide

                          Gather your friends, some plastic sheeting, a hose, washing up liquid if desired, and make a huge slip ‘n slide just like these guys. Granted, yours won’t be as big, but you get the idea… it’s fun!

                          11. Make a treasure hunt for your kids

                          Today’s digital world sees our children more often than not playing inside than outside. Why not create a sense of adventure by making a treasure hunt? Only rule? It has to be outside.

                            14. Take a road trip

                            Enjoy the open road with a few friends and take a road trip somewhere–anywhere. Just go out and enjoy the sunshine!

                            15. Play ultimate frisbee in the park

                              Frisbee is always great fun down the park, but why not turn it into more of a competitive sport by playing ultimate frisbee?

                              16. Make your own ice cream

                              Ice cream is a very versatile dessert. Make a sandwich, enjoy a cone, or simply just enjoy a bowl full. Better yet, making your own ice cream allows you to create any flavor you want.

                                21. Visit your local comedy club

                                  Local comedy clubs are extremely underrated. They are cheap to attend and no doubt you’ll have a barrel of laughs.

                                  22. Make your own hammock

                                    25. Take a hike

                                      Hikes are a great way to keep fit and see more of Mother Nature. There are countless trails available for you to explore. Why not try some this summer?
