There are a lot of great store mobile apps out there, but they can quickly take over your smart phone.

I can be kind of OCD when it comes to organizing apps on my phone and I really don’t like to have excess apps. Here’s a list of Store Specific apps I do feel are worth taking up space on your phone that give you app exclusive offers and deals.

6 Best Store Mobile Apps

Target App:
Android or iOS
If you are shopping in Target without using the Target App and all the coupons in the app, you are really missing out.  While you can load and print out Cartwheel offers from a computer, having the app makes for more deals in the store.

You’ll find over 600+ Cartwheel offers each week, plus all the Target coupons in the weekly ad are also loaded straight into the app (look under Wallet).  You can even connect your RedCard and pay through the app.

One other great feature, you can look for items in your store and see if they are in-stock and what aisle they are on.  No more running to the store to find they are already sold out.

CVS App:

I love the CVS App!  It has app only coupons as well as any other coupons that would normally print from the CVS coupon center.  I can know before I get to the store what coupons are there and start planning out deals.

You’ll also find around 120+ manufacturer coupons in the app that you can load straight to your CVS card.  A big tip to remember, if a coupon has a picture it’s a manufacturer coupon.  If there is no picture, it’s a store coupon.

Walgreens App:

The Walgreens App also has app exclusive coupons and you can even fill your prescriptions through the app.  Like the CVS app you’ll find there are lots of manufacturer and store coupons you can clip right to your card.

One other feature of the Walgreens app is their Healthy Choices program.  You’ll earn Balance Rewards for walking and other activities you do each day.

Walmart App:
I’m not a huge Walmart shopper, but if you are shopping there you should be using their app every time you leave.  Scan the bottom of your receipt with the Savings Catcher section of the app (under Services) and you’ll get back a little bit each time you shop.

The app also lets you fill prescriptions from your phone as well start a return or even a registry.  

Kohls App:
Android or iOS
While I would never recommend shopping through their app (sorry Kohls you need to work on that a bit), the Kohls App is great for keeping up with store coupons and all of your Kohls Cash.  When you link your account, your Kohls cash will automatically appear in the app.  You’ll also see your Yes2You Rewards right in the app too.

Kroger App:
While there are no extra savings you can’t get off the Kroger Website, the Kroger app is very thought out and actually pretty helpful.  If you use the Kroger ClickList service you’ll find ordering in the app to be very easy as it pulls your frequent items first and then allows you to look at sales and coupons.

You can load digital coupons, refill prescriptions, and even see your current fuel rewards balance.  Another fun feature, under the more section you’ll find they have even put in the receipt survey.  Get extra fuel rewards from every purchase straight in the app when you do the survey.


Other stores have their own apps as well like Publix, Bi-Lo, Food Lion and more. But I find these apps do not offer anything more than what I could find from their websites.
