There’s a small amount of joy to be had whenever we grab a great deal for an excellent product or service. Discounts and offers have made this extremely accessible, becoming quite the rage these past few years. The nice thing is that you don’t need to be on your desk anymore to grab a deal. Mobile is the way to go when accessing discounts and the retailers know it.
Here are some of the best apps to get your discount on, perfect for the coming holiday season!
Are you an AAA member? Then there’s an app for you! Get access to thousands of members discounts from retailers, restaurants and shops around you with this app. Just show them your membership card and you’re good to go.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you got all your daily deals on one app? Why yes, yes it would be. That’s exactly what Best Deals does: it compiles all the daily deals online, neatly putting them in categories and ranking by popularity. It even gives you local deals so you don’t have to drive all the way to another town.
Before this craze of couponing came to be, there was Entertainment. Check it out for weekly deals at merchants near you and just make sure they take Android coupons and you’re all set. You can even get driving directions and business info like the store’s phone right on the app. Note that you need a membership to be able to access these discounts, which is available at Entertainment.com
Foursquare gives you access to discounts at your favorite stores. Check out the Specials tab and discover deals at places near you. Follow the instructions on how to unlock the deal (like check-in three times, be the mayor, etc) and grab a nice discount, easy peasy.
The deals juggernaut has quite a hefty app behind it. Not only can you access your city’s featured deals, you can also check out fun deals right next to you. Whether you want to Eat Something, Have Fun or Get Pampered, there’s likely a deal you can redeem within your reach.
A great way to access Google Offers around you, the Shopper app lets you browse your immediate vicinity for deals to cash in on. It’s also a great way to hunt for better deals on non-sale items. Just scan the item and check out the stores that offer the best deal (or get it right on store if they do price matching).
Discover deals in your city with this app from the prolific deals site. It’s not your normal grab-and-go app, LivingSocial offers lifestyle deals by giving you options. Do you want some fun-filled activities for the kids and adults alike? Go for Families. Want to invite a few friends to a new experience? Try out Adventures. Of course, you still get the usual Daily Deals and location-based deals via instant.
This app offers a deal a day, which you can share with friends and even pay right inside the app. Get at least half off and get great deals in establishments near you.
I remember when this big yellow book sat right beside our phone and I’m glad the company reinvented itself and went mobile. Now, it sits inside my phone and I can grab deals from local businesses without all that page turning and heavy lifting. And hey, it even includes gas prices in app!
