50 Best Shopping Apps to Save Money

Modern life is immersed in technology – we use our smartphones for everything from making phone calls and sending emails to researching, watching videos, listening to music, and even shopping. From finding the best deals to getting cash back on your purchases, shopping apps provide a variety of ways to make your necessary (and not so necessary) purchases easier on the budget. A little bit of extra effort can result in big savings, and sometimes the only effort required is downloading an app.

No matter what's on your shopping list, there's probably a way to save some money on your purchase. We've rounded up 50 apps to help you do just that below, categorized for easy reference:

Zulily

This app has gained in popularity significantly in the past few years. Originally, it was known primarily for great deals on kids' clothes, but there's much more to be found here. Zulily also offers deals on home goods, women's and men's apparel, shoes, toys, and more, all at fair to deeply discounted prices. Shipping times can be a bit lengthy, as Zulily acts as a middleman for most of the products they sell, and the seller has to send products to Zulily before Zulily ships them out to customers. Shipping times aside, Zulily offers some amazing deals on fabulous products across a broad range of categories.

Key Features:

  • Constantly changing inventory; new sale launches daily at 6am PST
  • Shopping for the whole family in one convenient app
  • Excellent customer service
