These apps will help you save money, trim your costs, and much more! We are in a pandemic and it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon. You'll want to utilize these apps to keep you on track financially.
Mint is a personal financial management service. Mint will keep track of your spending habits and will even create a budget for you. It's password-protected and is a great way for someone who needs help budgeting and keeping track of their money.
Once you connect your account to this app, it takes a look at your income and spending habits and takes money from your account to the digit savings account. You can have as many categories as you like within the app. As of this writing, their current APY is 0.50%. You get a savings bonus every 3 months, overdraft, and more. You can get started now by clicking here!
Acorns is almost like Digit but instead, it rounds up your spending, takes the extra change and moves it to Acorn, and then uses the change to invest. You are given the option as to whether or not you want your investment to be aggressive or not. College students are free and if you don't have a clue about investing, this app is a great starter app.
This website and app is great because it compares prices of prescription medicine and helps you save money. Most places that you and I shop at will take the coupons to help you save on your prescription like Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Costco, Walmart, Kroger, Target, Giant, and Safeway. You don't have to sign up or give your information; just go on the app or website print your coupons. You can save up to 80%. The cheapest prices seem to come from Walmart, Kroger, and Costco. You can not use insurance and RxSaver together, unfortunately.
Don't want a credit card and don't want to put anything on credit? Sezzle, Afterpay, Klarna, and Quadpay are great apps to use when you want to buy and make payments every two weeks. It's mostly retailers but I've seen Sezzle on Greyhound! There is no APY and will not affect your credit. If you do not make your payments on time, that could affect your credit if they decide to report you for non-payment.
