When Mobile Coupons and Discount Gift Cards Collide: Volume 2

Happy Friday, everyone!

I hope you’re gearing up for a successful weekend of holiday shopping, eating, and entertainment. Yesterday, I blogged about some of my favorite Memorial Day deals and I’m super-excited to use them! Whether you’re hanging out at the mall, by the pool, or ocean-side, don’t get swept up in the holiday frenzy and spend a ton of money. Plan your weekend around coupons, and you could end up dining and doing fun things with your family for free!

Today, I’m bringing you the second installment of a series that will change the way you think about shopping forever. My absolute favorite way to use my SnipSnap app is to stack all the serious deals with other money saving apps and strategies. I love using shopkick to score shopping incentives, Wrapp to receive mobile gift cards from my Facebook friends, and Endorse to make mobile money back on every day items I buy at the grocery store. Recently, I learned about the world of discount gift cards. GiftCardRescue.com is a frugal shopper’s must-have site; with Gift Card Rescue, you can sell gift cards to stores you never shop at for cold, hard cash, and then buy gift cards to stores you love at a seriously discounted rate. Best part about GiftCardRescue.com? You can combine the savings with coupons to take a serious chunk out of your shopping bill. Check out how you can save with mobile coupons and discount gift cards at these 5 hot restaurants and retailers!
