Clipping out pieces of the Sunday paper is so last century, and the old method wouldn’t have helped you with your holiday shopping anyway. But today’s smartphone coupon apps offer great deals to help you find the perfect gift for your loved ones no matter what’s on their list for Santa.
The Coupons App
This app includes the offers you’d expect, along with barcode scanning, voice search, and local maps. The ability to share coupons via text, Twitter, and e-mail is also on board, and road warriors can even search for the lowest prices at local gas stations.
Coupon Sherpa displays the best daily deals from around the Internet, offering a variety of discounts that can be redeemed in stores. You can create a list of your favorite stores, search for the nearest locations, and browse coupons that are exclusive to the app.
More than just a coupon aggregator, Swagg lets you import gift and rewards cards so you can keep track of all your balances in one place. You can even buy, send, and swap gift cards from retailers such as American Eagle Outfitters, Gap, and JCPenny. On the coupon side, users can search deals from more than 4,500 retailers.
Track My Coupons
The only paid app on our list justifies the $1.99 with a comprehensive system for organizing all your coupons. After your coupons are imported to the app, Track My Coupons makes your life easier by sorting them into different categories and sending notification alerts when deals are about to expire.
