4 Best Shopping Apps That Will Save You Money

I enjoy shopping as much as the next person but what I love more?

Making sure that there’s some cash backs or rewards from my spending activity, be it online or going through a retail spree at my local malls.

Nowadays, everything can be accomplished through our smartphones, and with everything, that means shopping is within reach of our fingertips and tapping means putting the items to our cart, virtually. I believe that mobile or online shopping should be for everyone too, regardless of ages and even if you are a cheapskate or just a regular person wanting to take advantage of discounts and sales.

From cash backs, discounts and yes, mobile coupons, you can probably create a shopping scheme taking home shopped products for insanely low prices!

So now, I’d like you to take out your phone and stick with me as we enumerate the mobile shopping apps that should be on your phone because these shopping apps can help you save money.


Ebates is a personal favorite and probably popular among your friends and families. It is effortless to use, and after installing the app, all you need to do is open it and search the store in the search bar and click their referral link to the store and go about with your regular shopping routine.

Their partner stores pay Ebates’ link to these stores. In return, Ebates will refund you a portion percentage of your purchase. This refund will reflect as a payout quarterly. They will either send you a check (and it will be a fat one if you purchased a lot!), via Paypal or bank transfer to cause or your friend and family member.

Download the App here.

Popular stores supported by Ebates:

  • Amazon
  • Best Buy
  • JCPenney
  • Kohl’s
  • Macy’s
  • Nordstrom
  • Old Navy
  • Priceline
  • Target


Like Ebates, Dosh is also a cashback shopping app that rewards you the glory of just purchasing. It also works similarly like Ebates just letting you go on with purchase while you also accumulate cashback. However, the way Dosh works has some distinction.

Dosh will ask you to link your credit card info, and they guarantee that your credit card information is secure. Once done, you can go to every store it supports online or physical stores and swipe/key in your credit card. You can check the cashback you’ve earned by using your credit card from your Dosh account. Oh, and it works with debit cards too!

On payouts, Dosh asks you to have a minimum of $25 before it goes straight to your bank account or Paypal upon request.

Download the App here.

Popular stores supported by Dosh:

  • Nike
  • Walmart
  • Gap
  • Fitbit
  • Sam’s Club
  • Callaway
  • Patagonia
  • Snapfish
  • Forever 21
  • Hilton
  • Jack in the Box


Drop makes its money the same way like Ebates- through using their referral link. It works the same way as Ebates obviously, but the payout method is quite different. Instead of cash backs, drop gives you gift cards, and it might work with you if you’re particularly loyal to a specific store.

In every 5000 points, you can redeem it for a $5 gift card of your choice.

Let’s talk about groceries, and if you don’t feel comfortable linking your credit card to mobile apps, Ibotta is your best friend. The caveat is, while previously mentioned apps just let you shop, Ibotta asks you to carefully review the grocery offer and accept it via their mobile app to score cashback rewards.

Aside from reviewing their offers, there are also simple tasks to finish before you receive your cashback like buying certain products and taking photos of it. Don’t worry, and it will all be worth it as the cashback is already in your account within 24 hours.

  • Sam’s Club
