Money Saving Apps + All You magazine


This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and All You, but all my opinions are my own. #lifeforless #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO


Even though I was familiar with All You magazine, I had never actually picked up a copy until a couple of days ago. I found the July issue of All You at the front of my neighborhood Dollar General.



Do you know what else was at the front of the store? Candy. So, we went home with a magazine, M&Ms and a pack of chewy sour WarHeads.


All You magazine is packed with coupons, money saving tips, recipes and more. My favorite article in the July issue was The Ultimate Guide to Money-Saving Apps. After finishing the article, I immediately downloaded eight free apps to my iPhone.


I've used several of the apps already. I immediately uploaded all of my loyalty card info into CardStar. Now, I can pull up the app on my phone instead of digging around in my wallet for the cards I need. Then there's the GasBuddy app which will tell you the cheapest gas prices in your area. I used this today and saved several bucks on gas.


My favorite app has to be the Shopkick app. It's a rewards based app where you can earn "kicks" for entering stores, scanning certain items and making purchases. I've already started earning points toward a Target gift card.


With the number of money saving tips, coupons and great family fun ideas, I'll definitely be reading All You magazine more. You can pick up a copy of All You at many local retailers. Click here to find a store nearest you.

$1 Magazines? I'd go nuts. We don't have them at our dollar store. I got a gift subscription to All You a few years back and I liked it. I need that shopping app right now!
