Do you love a good bargain, I’m certainly one that would prefer to save some pennies than going straight for the full price products.  I have listed the top 5 money saving apps for UK shoppers, and the best part is that all of them are free.


The entire idea behind the MySupermarket app is that it is capable of stopping you from spending too much on your groceries. It does this by comparing thousands of products covering all of the major supermarkets in the UK and it then shows you which shop has specific products at the cheapest price. Quite simply, if you are unable to save money using this app, then you are doing it all wrong.


CheckoutSmart does things a bit differently.  This app requires you to sign up, but it then gives you access to a whole host of special offers and free products via your phone and it also works via the cashback model, which has been popular for some time. Basically, you earn money back when you use their app as well as saving money via their special offers, so you have more than one chance to save just by downloading this simple app. Oh, and to start things off you will be awarded £9.50 of free shopping.


Saving money via the use of vouchers is something that has been around for some time and the VoucherCloud app is one of the best around for money saving deals sent straight to your phone. By installing this app, you are going to have access to thousands of special offers at a huge number of companies including major names. They have vouchers that cover a variety of shops, restaurants, and individual products, so checking them out before going ahead and spending any cash is absolutely essential. Vouchers and coupon codes are growing in popularity fast; in a report published in January by the deals and coupon code site, it is seen that more than 70% of online shoppers look for coupons or discount codes on a third party platform prior to checking out on retailer website.


The way that the RedLaser app works is cool. Basically, it allows you to scan barcodes of various products whilst out shopping and it then allows you to not only read reviews about it prior to splashing the cash, but it also shows you other stores where it is for sale and how much it costs there. This price comparison app covers both online as well as offline, but it then goes one step further because if you see a price you love it then allows you to purchase it via the app and have it delivered straight to your phone. How cool is that?


Loyalty cards are all the rage, but it can get quite annoying when you have various cards sitting in your wallet. However, that is now a thing of the past thanks to Loyalli. This smartphone app allows you to have a loyalty card in an app and there are already more than 600 different retailers that are using this system for their loyalty schemes. In order to get the points, you simply need to scan a QR code, so it is very easy to use, but it is still in its infancy although you can expect more retailers to take it on board over the next year.

These are just some of the best apps to have on your smartphone or tablet and can help you to save money on your everyday shopping.
