Are you one of those people who live for a deal? Are you constantly searching for great deals and do your friends rely on you to find them a good deal? Well then, you could definitely benefit from my favorite apps that allow you to score awesome savings.

My Favorite Apps to Score Awesome Savings

Fast Food:

McDonald’s – Although I’ve talked about how to score deals on fast food before, I still love using the McDonald’s app to score awesome savings. All you need to do to start is create an account, but once that is done the deals you can score are endless! McDonald’s constantly offers free food, bogo deals, and so much more!

Burger King is not my favorite app, but if you’re going to eat there be sure to use the app. Once you register, you will be given all of the current BK coupons and they are so easy to use. Unfortunately, BK does not offer many freebies, if any, but the app is guaranteed to save you money on your favorite BK foods.

Chick-Fil-A – Not only can you earn rewards and be rewarded with the Chick-Fil-A app, but you can also order your food with mobile ordering.

Dunkin Donuts app offers lots of savings, if you pay with a registered Dunkin Donuts gift card. Some awesome savings I’ve scored in the past were $1.49 any sized iced coffees and free birthday beverages.


Shopkickhas been one of my favorite apps for years and counting. It’s so easy to earn reward points and you can redeem them on gift cards to save at your favorite stores. If you have a smartphone, I highly recommend using the Shopkick app.My Favorite Apps For Awesome Savings 73

Ibotta is one of the more famous savings apps for groceries and it makes saving money so easy. Simply purchase select foods from select stores, scan your receipt (or link your card) and earn cash back! Simple as 1,2,3.

Ebates if you’re like me and use your phone to shop, be sure to download the Ebates app. Save money with coupons and earn cash back for your purchases.

Amazon is widely known for good deals and fast delivery, but did you know the Amazon app can keep you from spending too much money on the things you love? Simply download the app and scan the barcode of any item you’re wanting to buy and find out if you’re really getting a good deal.

Sheetz app is one of my favorite gas station apps. Even though, I just recently downloaded it, I’m already finding the savings more than worth it. Link your Sheets My Rewardz card and get access to even more delicious deals, earn points to redeem for free coffee, mto subs, and so much more.

7- Eleven constantly offers awesome savings on drinks and other items through their app. Just download the app and scan your unique barcode for savings. The app also allows users to track their beverage purchases and the 7th one is always free. Be sure to keep an eye on this app though because it will sneak a freebie in here and there. Check out the awesome deal on the app right now by visiting HERE.

Kohls is notorious for their 30 percent off deals and other savings and their app does not lack any of these deals. Whenever you’re shopping at Kohls have your Kohl’s App ready and score awesome savings on things you’re already planning on purchasing.

Savings Star app works kind of like the Ibotta app in the fact that you earn money back on things you’re already buying. Users pick their coupons before shopping and then scan their receipt for savings.

Cartwheel by Target is the app for all Target-obsessed people out there. Save money simply by choosing your coupons and having the cashier scan your phone. Cartwheel is so easy to use, that saving money couldn’t get any easier.

Checkout 51 is another app like Ibotta and Savings Star and can be used in conjunction with both. Earning cash back on your groceries can’t be easier.

Movies and Entertainment

Netflix is not a free app, but with a paid monthly subscription, I am able to save money on movies and television shows while I am away. Now that Netflix allows users to download movies to watch while they are offline, my kids no longer need me to purchase movies – my Netflix subscription is already saving me a ton!

Those are some of my absolute favorite apps for saving money while on the go, do you have any favorite ones not mentioned?
