Get Flipp for Your Back to School Needs

Well it’s August and the reality is later this month and very early next month the kids are heading back to school. One of the things that moms need is Flipp (a free app) for back to school shopping. I really see it being a pocket book saver for many moms this back to school season.

There are so many things to purchase at back to school time and the list varies depending on the age of your child, and what about those big kids who are headed off to college or university, their lists are huge and not cheap.

Everyone knows I am a Flipp Ambassador, and my love for this app runs deep. It does for a reason. Every day no matter what I need the app saves me time and money. Those are two things every mom can use more of. This sweet free app that is available for both Itunes and Google Play devices helps me save no matter what I am looking for.

How does Flipp Save you Time and Money for your Back to School shopping?

First Flipp curates your local flyers. Whether you are shopping for those grocery staples for back to school lunches, a new back pack, or setting up a dorm room, if it is in a flyer you can find the best deals. Before you leave home you can literally know the best price for whatever is on your list.

The feature I love best on Flipp is the search feature so you know you can find what you want to purchase at the flip of your fingers..simply type in the item you want to find and up comes all the flyers that have deals on that item. Great, right! No more need to manually go through the flyers looking for the best price. You have all the prices in one spot and you can see what makes the best deal for you.

Then simply circle the one you want and it will appear in your clippings folder. Think of your clippings folder as your shopping list.

At the store all you have to do is bring up your clipping list from the Home menu.

I use the app every time I go shopping, I am a bit of an addict. But think I save on everything from grocery staples to that backpack and clothing.

So now thanks to the team at Flipp I get to give 1 of my readers 2 $50 Visa Gift cards to get all there back to school shopping done. Sound good?
