When Mobile Coupons and Discount Gift Cards Collide: Episode 1

by Nicole

If you’re like most people visiting the mall or heading out to eat dinner with the family, you’re usually at the mercy of your favorite retailers and restaurants when it comes to the prices you’ll pay. Sure, you might catch a sale or special, but, for the most part, you expect to shell out the number printed on the price tag. Saving money takes a lot of strategizing, organization, and planning, right? Scouring the paper for coupons (and actually remembering to bring them to the store with you before they expire) plus constantly researching store sales and promotions can be exhausting and, honestly, not worth the effort. But there are simple, easy, frugal shopping tactics you can take up, today, without wasting time or sanity.

Mobile couponing app SnipSnap lets you take pictures of your coupons and integrate them into your phone, so you’re never left without all that free money you receive in the mail again. The app also grants you access to thousands of coupons other users are uploading every second, so you can tap into more savings than ever before. Think you should save more at your favorite store? Frustrated when you receive a gift card for a store you’ve never shopped at in your life? GiftCardRescue.com is a gift card exchange site that pays users cold, hard cash for those gift cards they’ll never use, then sells those gift cards at steep discounts to savvy shoppers who can use them to buy more for less at their favorite stores.
