New apps are appearing every month to help us save more on our grocery budget.  Staying up with the latest programs can get tricky!  I also know a number of you got new phones and tablets and are starting fresh.  So here’s my list of top couponing apps to help you start this year off great!

Note: These are in no order, so as to be fair to all companies.  Also most of these offer referral incentives to share the app with friends.  The links below are my referral links.  Feel free to sign up and share with all your friends to earn credits.

Top 10 Coupon & Money Saving Apps


I would be crazy to not to list myself here (after all this is my list).  This is your way to find coupons on the go, make shopping lists, track your savings and even use the bar code scanner in the store to help price match deals.


Head to the store and then earn cash back after your purchase by submitting pictures of your receipt through their app.  You must have a smart phone or tablet device with a camera to use this company.

Make your purchase like normal in the store, you can even buy items on sale and use a manufacturer’s coupon.  Submit a photo of your receipt and you’ll receive a payout to your Paypal account within 24 hours.  There are no minimum payout limits!


Berry Cart
Another post-shopping app.  This one focuses only on organic items!

checkout 51

Checkout 51
My favorite post-shopping app!  I know I said no order was given here… but you’ll earn faster with Checkout51 than you will with any other app.  They load all new coupons every Thursday.  Like other apps, go shopping and upload pictures of your receipt through their app or website to earn credit back.


This is a company that has been online for ages but just released a new app that makes saving even easier.  Using the app you are able to submit reciepts from Target, Walmart, Dollar General and few other stores that had never been available.


Cartwheel & Target (two different apps for the same store)
If you love Target, you have to get both of their apps.  Cartwheel gives you access to over 500 store sales that are like coupons.  Percentage off coupons that are good on up to 4 of the same items.  They can even be used with store and manufacturer coupons!  The Target app also has additional store coupons that aren’t available online or through text messages.



If you have a tablet or phone, this is the only way to print coupons off your phone.  I can’t say I love it, but if you want to print you gotta go here.  There is no way to get zip code specific offers with the app. (On a personal note: printing coupons from the coupons.com page on SouthernSavers is the #1 way that this site remains free, so if you just want to come here and print off your computer that would make me smile).


Retail Me Not
Stepping away from grocery, this app is awesome for finding in-store coupons for retail stores.  If I’m standing in the checkout line at Michael’s I can quickly pull up the app and see all the current coupons.  Most stores will scan the coupons right off your phone, so the app makes it perfect for last minute saving!
