Money-Saving Grocery Apps

Smart shoppers know to use all of the tools at their disposal to find the best deal on the block. These days saving money on groceries is so much easier. The ability to download apps that save you money on groceries has really eliminated a lot of the legwork out of clipping coupons and gathering rebates. Now, saving money on everyday groceries is just as easy as a tap on your phone screen or a quick recipe scan. The best grocery saving app is not the same app for every single shopper. How you save money with apps depends on your usual grocery shopping habits. Unless you want to dedicate a massive amount of time finding the best deals and extreme couponing, we recommend finding the app that works for you and starting there.

The apps below are sorted into several categories, making it easier for you to find the app that is best for you. Which app works for you depends on how you shop and how you're looking to save! Loyal shoppers will get a lot of use out of loyalty apps while other shoppers might do better with receipt apps and cashback programs.

Grocery Store Apps

Many grocery stores have their very own apps, making it easier for you to shop and save at their stores. These apps for both Apple and Android are perfect for shoppers who shop at the same places over and over again. Check out the apps below from some of our favorite stores.

Walmart Mobile App

Among the many features on this useful grocery app, the Walmart Mobile app contains a "Savings Catcher" that does all the work for you. Instead of spending time clipping coupons for a million different stores, the savings catcher is designed to find deals/sales at local retailers. If those prices are cheaper than what you paid at Walmart, the savings catcher will send you a gift card for the difference.

Target Cartwheel

Much like the Walmart app above, the Target Cartwheel app is designed to reward loyal Target shoppers. This handy app offers rebates and coupons on items in all categories (including groceries). Just shop in-store or on the app and scan your barcode at the end of your trip.
