Smartphone apps helping shoppers save money


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — If you are looking to ring up savings while shopping, look no further than your smartphone.

Experts say there is no need to search papers and cut out savings – because there are a ton of apps that do all of the heavy-lifting for you.

Call 12 For Action asked viewers about their favorite shopping apps – and then we tried them out. The savings were out of this world.

Flipp uses notifications to help you stay on top of your shopping, and you can find all the best deals with the app.

Retail Me Not allows you to click on retailers you shop at regularly. Just find your favorite store on the app, and a discount code is automatically downloaded.

Among viewers, Shopkick was by far the most popular.
