"What am I going to do with my pile of old t-shirts? I'm going to wear them. The ones that are now retired are mostly used already. I've made bracelets, though not with jewels as shown here, children's clothes and pj's, and quilts beyond belief! It certainly is fun to be creative with something everyone has and most throw away! Thanks for more ideas."

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.
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.
You can "stack" or combine coupons with Target Cartwheel
Whole Foods App
If you regularly shop at Whole Foods, this is the app for you! This straightforward app allows you to access exclusive digital coupons as well as track the deals and sales at your local store. Most of the coupons on this app are ONLY provided on the app so be sure to download it before your shopping trip.
Keyring App for Loyalty Cards
While this is not technically for an individual brand, this app is perfect for lovers of loyalty programs and cards. Keeping track of all of your loyalty cards for various stores and brands can be tough. They easily clog up your wallet or keyring. Keyring App allows you to store and save all of these cards on one app, freeing up space in your wallet and making it easier to rack up points at all your favorite stores.

Rebates and Cash Back Grocery Apps
Using stores to collect coupons or gain access to exclusive deals is a great way to save money on groceries.

This grocery shopping app to save money is a straight-forward cashback app. SavingStar allows you to claim the deals on the app by applying them to your store loyalty cards or claiming your cashback for the purchase. Rewards are claimed by uploading a photo of your receipt.
