We like saving our customers time and money, so with this in mind, we’ve found the best money saving apps around, to help you make the most of your money.

1. Mint

Once you’ve downloaded this nifty little app you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. Mint allows you to manage ALL of your financial activity from all of your accounts in one place. Track everything from budgets, to bills to credit scores. And if numbers aren’t your thing, don’t worry, because on iPads this app visually displays your spending net worth and cash flow in graphs, so you know exactly where you are at a glance. This app is easy to set up, secure and personalisable. But the best part? It’s free. With everything in one place, it is a great way to keep track of your finances at the touch of a button.

2. SnipSnap

For all you coupon lovers out there, this one’s for you. SnipSnap is an app with the largest collection of printed coupons for all types of deals, for all types of shops. The only downside is that as a retail coupon-centric app, it doesn’t support manufacturer coupons yet. But it does allow you to photograph physical coupons and convert them into mobile-ready versions. And you can browse its online directory to see what your friends are “snipping.” So you’ll never miss a deal again.

3. Groupon

This app has become really popular in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. On it, users can search for local deals for everything from hotels to fitness, shopping and restaurants. With deals and coupons offering between 50-90% off and special promotions for holiday seasons, this app gives you unbeatable deals all over the world.

4. Onavo Extend

Going over your mobile data usage is easily done and can mean that you get hit with nasty bills at the end of the month. But with Onavo Extend you can take charge of your mobile data usage. Essentially the app installs a configuration program that compresses your data to give you a cleaner, faster version of the Internet. It also gives you insights into your data usage, showing you how much data your apps are consuming to help you to stay within your allowance. So no more unexpected 3G or 4G data charges.

5. Hotel Tonight

Need to book a last-minute hotel in a foreign city? No problem. Hotel Tonight allows users to book hotels in destinations all over the world straight from your mobile or tablet, even on the day of booking. The app is simple and straightforward to use and offers exclusive discounts on last-minute bookings.
