I share five of my favorite smart shopping apps with Jessica Abo:
You need to keep that office fridge stocked to keep your staff happy. For all your grocery needs, Flipp is free shopping app that brings your local circulars right to your smartphone before you head out to buy groceries. The app helps you easily find deals, plan your shopping and save more money each week. Use the new Shopping List feature find the best local deals and, in Store Mode, sort the items on your shopping list by store aisle to easily navigate the store. You can even take a photo of your handwritten list and it will be transferred to the app, and you can synch with your partner so you don’t double purchase!
From office supplies to business lunches, entrepreneurs are constantly spending. Savvy shoppers can save a bundle with the Slickdeals app or their site, Slickdeals.net. With more than 10 million community members searching for and vetting deals (the very best are voted to their homepage), you know you’re getting the strongest deals.
- Gift Card Granny
Another amazing way to save on your essentials is using discounted gift cards from GiftCardGranny. The GiftCardGranny app has over 350,000 discount gift cards across more than 1,000 retailers and restaurants – everything from Staples to Best Buy – and cards can be discounted anywhere from 2%-30%. So many opportunities to save, freeing up money to use elsewhere.
Do you want to make money from your vacant parking space? Now, there’s a platform for that. MyLücke for iOS is earning people money who are renting out their driveway or business lot through www.mylücke.com. MyLücke is available only in LA right now, and it was chosen as 1 of 50 apps in L.A. to watch in 2017 by Built in LA. Hope it comes here soon!
- Credit Sesame
Do you know, right now, what your credit score is, what your borrowing power is and what credit cards and loans you qualify for? Entrepreneurs need to be ready to pounce when the opportunity is hot, and Credit Sesame ensures that you’ll be ready by providing personalized information and advice to help you make the best financial decisions. Also, when you sign up for a free membership – which requires no credit card – you’ll receive free identity theft protection for up to $50,000.
