There are a ton of grocery apps out there, claiming to save you time and money. Unfortunately, most of them (like a lot of apps) aren't actually worth the time it takes to figure them out or the money it costs to use them.
There is one, however, that is super easy and convenient to use — and it's free! It's called Flipp and you should download it ASAP.
3 Ways Flipp Can Save You Money on Groceries
1. It has all the local deals.
The best way to know what's on sale near you is to subscribe to your local grocery stores' circulars. But let's be honest: No one subscribes to newspapers anymore. Luckily, Flipp lets you peruse them electronically. Even better, you can search for items by keyword (say, if you're out of Cheerios), and tap to "clip" your fave deals (Honey Nut for $2.99!) so you can keep track of which stuff you need from which store. Finally, you can "favorite" the stores you frequent most, so you don't have to hunt through the whole database to find the ad for the grocery on your corner.
2. It doubles as your grocery list.
Flipp also saves your grocery list as you create it, by clipping deals or typing in your top products. You can also invite others to collaborate, so if your boyfriend is near Whole Foods on the way home, he can pick up that rotisserie chicken that's on sale for $6.99.
3. It eliminates keyring and coupon clutter.
Flipp keeps your loyalty card barcodes electronically, so the cashier just has to scan your phone screen. For select stores, you can also load coupons and rebates directly to your loyalty account — with one scan you get the discounts or rebate amount, which you can then cash out to your PayPal account.
