We all want to save money on everyday products. We want the best possible deal we can find. Well, here are some free shopping apps that help you find the best deals and pay only the best price.
1. Ibotta: The app with rebates.
Ibotta helps you save money at retail stores, grocery stores, restaurants, and pharmacies. To start saving money, you must first activate the digital offers.

Furthermore, you can even get cashback on Amazon purchases when you use Ibotta. Once you reach $20, you can cash out via PayPal, bank account, gift card, or Venmo.
The Amazon App can help you save on the go. Just like the website, this app syncs with your wish lists and purchasing history. In addition, it can easily tell you when Amazon has a better deal than your local retailer. The Amazon App is free.
3. Coupon Sherpa: The app for where you are.
Coupon Sherpa is another digital coupon service accessible through computer or phone. The app lets you browse savings by store. In addition, Coupon Sherpa can show you savings opportunities based on your present location. When checking out, simply present the digital coupon to the cashier to receive the discount.
4. Rakuten (formerly Ebates): The shopping portal.
It’s a shopping portal with over 2,000 online retailers. You can also get cash back at over 30 businesses when you shop in-store. The main way to save money with Rakuten is to shop using the app. You’ll get cashback on all purchases made during that shopping trip. For example, in addition to usual shop savings, Rakuten may provide 3% cash back at Kohl’s. If you spend $50 at Kohl’s, you’ll get $1.50 in Rakuten rewards, payable by check or PayPal.
5. Giving Assistant: The free shopping app for cash back.
Giving Assistant is a great cash-back site. As with Rakuten, they offer many of the same cash-back rates. In addition, they offer to automatically apply every available discount coupon. Giving Assistant buyers receive cashback that they may donate to literally any U.S. nonprofit — even local ones! However, donating is optional. They can keep it all or donate 1% to 100% of it.
6. Honey: The promo code app.
Honey is a wonderful deal app if you like saving money at Amazon and applying promo codes online. When you are ready to pay, Honey will automatically apply the best checkout code. In addition, they will search third-party listings. Further, they will alert you if you can buy the same goods cheaper from a third-party Amazon retailer.
Finally, Honey offers a new twist on online buying cashback. Unlike Rakuten, Honey pays you a bonus based on the things you buy. The only drawback is that the things that earn cash back vary by store and Honey. Honey Rewards range from 1% to 100% and are redeemable for Amazon gift cards.
7. Brad’s Deals
Brad’s Deals is the place to go for hand-picked bargains and coupons. They’ve been around since 2005 and cover a huge range of products, so you’re bound to find some amazing deals. You can also establish deal alerts for things you want to be notified of when their editors find them.
