It truly is holiday season. The hustle and bustle has begun. We are all flocking to the malls and stores looking for just the right gifts for those who have made the nice list. Well at least I am and there are a number of apps that are helping this tired mom get it all done. What are my favorite apps of this holiday season? Which ones help relieve the stress:
Have a stack of loyalty cards. Most of us do these days. Think you load all your rewards cards onto one simple app. At the store you simply show your Stocard. It even has a quick and easy setup. It is a free app and you can choose to load from over 400 different reward cards or even add your favorite reward card even if it is not on their list with the other option. No more lost reward points. Great for collecting points as you shop. You can download it for both ios and Android phones.
2. No More Socks
Have trouble budgeting and making a list and tracking what gifts are bought? No more socks is the best christmas gift app. You can make a list, check it twice, set a budget for each person and even set up reminders. You can even use it for other events through out the year. It costs $2.29 and is available for iOS.
Ever get stuck in traffic trying to find your way to the mall or that one store? Waze is the largest community based traffic and navigation app. Think of it like having the inside scoop on the very best routes in real time. Definitely a time saver for when you have to head to the mall. Waze is a free download for iOS, Android and Windows
Want to comparison shop and check your local flyers for the best deals as you hunt for just the right gift, then Flipp is your answer. Flipp is a shoppers best friend. It is the only app that matches hundreds of coupons with local weekly ads to save you the most money at over 800 retailers. It also has great features like a search function that lets you comparison shop right in store and discount slider that lets you find those great deals. It is a free download available for both iOS and Android.
Ever need to find a toilet while you are out shopping for the day? I know I have. Toilet finder allows you to locate the closest toilets. They have over 70,000 toilets on the map. It will even guide you towards the location you choose. It is a free download on both iOS and Android.
