Savings Angel

When you’re looking to save money shopping for holiday gifts this year start with what’s in your hand so much of the day--your phone.

Here are a few savings apps suggestions from Josh Elledge at

First, Swagbucks. It’s free and you earn points just for using their search.

“After you’ve accumulated points you redeem them for cash and gift cards,” Elledge said. “You can boost your points quickly by taking surveys, watching videos and playing games. Now when was the last time you were paid to do any of those things? Not only that, you can earn cash back by shopping through Swagbucks. Simply click through their site before buying anything online. Now every point you earn at Swagbucks is like 1% cash back, you save in gift cards or cash payout. This is easy money. You can earn points yourself or donate your points to a number of charities that then get cash payouts directly from Swagbucks.”

Elledge also said, “Don’t shop anywhere without first searching for a coupon code at RetailMeNot. They have the largest depository of coupons and coupon codes and even specialty sections.”

Elledge also suggests Price Grabber and Both are used to compare prices and find the best deals.
