  • SnipSnap Mobile Couponing App: Couponing for the Hectic Lifestyle

    Are you trying to live a frugal lifestyle, but find that clipping coupons is not worth all the trouble? The task is not only time-consuming, but extremely frustrating. Just to clip and organize the dozens of coupons you have to dedicate an entire afternoon to the task. If you’re like me, that’s the absolute last thing you want to do after working an 80 hour week. Thanks to the mobile couponing app, SnipSnap, you no longer have to worry about that! SnipSnap allows consumers to scan, save, and redeem printed coupons on their mobile phones! I don’t know why I didn’t think of this idea before?! SnipSnap Spokesperson, Elizabeth Licorish, explains her experience using the app and why she loves to SnipSnap:

    “I pride myself on my organization skills, resourcefulness, and patience. I’m happy to live below my means and I hate spending money, even when I have the cash. I take joy in simple pleasures; I’d rather go for a long meditative run or sip an inexpensive bottle of wine with friends than spend a fortune at the mall or the movie theater on a Friday night. So I’d always been frustrated with my inability to extreme coupon like the super women I’d see on TV. I could never justify the time it took to clip coupons with my hectic lifestyle. Plus, even when I managed to set aside coupons, more often than not, I’d forget them on my kitchen table whenever I’d go shopping.

    All this changed when I figured out my iPhone could do all the extreme couponing for me. When I found SnipSnap in the app store, it was love at first download, because, finally, my coupons were forget-proof. SnipSnap is the first mobile couponing app to completely mobilize printed store coupons. All shoppers have to do is take pictures of their print coupons and SnipSnap does the rest, creating digitized bar codes that scan right from your smart phone screen and compiling all other important information like expiration dates and promo codes so your coupons are always at your fingertips. SnipSnap also reminds you when your coupons are about to expire and when you’re near a store for which you’ve snipped a few deals. Not only is it impossible to forget your coupons at home with SnipSnap; it’s also impossible to forget to use them. Best of all, SnipSnap is social, so even if I haven’t snapped any coupons myself, I can search and snip all the thousands of coupons other users are uploading to the SnipSnap database every second.

    As soon as I started using SnipSnap, the savings began piling up. I figured out pretty quickly that I’ll never have to pay full price while eating out again; with SnipSnap coupons, I save $5-$15 every time I go out to eat. I regularly save 10-50% shopping for clothes at the mall and I’ve even scored lots of freebies, from cosmetics to cat food.

    The more I started to save with SnipSnap, the more I sought out easy, unconventional ways to save more money. I discovered apps like Ibotta, which allows you to earn money back for your grocery purchases, simply by scanning your receipts into the app. I shopkick to earn incentive rewards, just for walking into my favorite stores, and I love exchanging free mobile gift cards to stores like H&M and Victoria’s secret with the Wrapp app.

    When I discovered Gift Card Rescue, I honestly couldn’t believe I hadn’t been exchanging store gift cards all along. The business model is a complete win-win situation; over the years, I’ve received so many gift cards to stores I absolutely never shop at. Unfortunately, they’d get lost or expire (just like my old, print coupons) and that was a total lose-lose situation. Knowing I can trade my unwanted gift cards for cash is knowing I’ll never waste a good gift ever again. Better yet? Being able to buy discounted gift cards to stores I love and shop at all the time means automatic savings every time I hit the sales racks. If I shop with a Gift Card Rescue gift card and a SnipSnapped store coupon, I’m instantly stacking my savings with almost zero effort. Now, I can’t imagine shopping any other way!”

  • Save Money This Memorial Day Weekend

    When you think of Memorial Day, you often think of barbecues  warm weather, great sales and an extra day off of work.
