Top 10 Apps to Save Money

Utility bills, grocery expenses, rent, entertainment spends are but just some of the many fixed monthly expenses that anybody living in a metro city would have. Add to that our occasional shopping sprees and all those ‘Friday Nights’ with friends. In fact, for all of us who live from paycheck-to-paycheck most of that monthly salary vanishes after paying all these bills!! And that’s when you understand the true meaning of the phrase, “A penny saved is a penny earned!” In this post, I’m going to show you how you can get a little more out of that smartphone of yours! Here’s a  list of the top 10 apps to save money in 2018!! And believe me, if you use all of these consistently you can save tons of cash!

Top 10 Apps to Save Money in 2018:

1. Crown it – GoldVIP Technology Solutions Pvt Ltd

Locations Covered: All India

Savings Category: Dining, Bills

Available Platforms: iOS, Android

This app started out as a loyalty app for restaurant-goers in which users got cashbacks for uploading bills at participating outlets. However, they now seem to have moved away from this model as they do not offer direct cashbacks anymore. Crown it is now more of a consumer market research tool promoted by the company. Unlike before, on uploading a bill, users now get awarded with a ‘Weekly Rush Ticket’ using which they can participate in a weekly lucky draw contest with some very attractive prizes for the winners. Believe it or not, I personally know someone who’s won an iPhone 7 in one of these weekly lucky draws. I myself, have won rewards totalling upwards of a 1000 rupees in the past few months. Other than this, they also host a game of ‘Tamboola/Housie’ twice every day with comparatively smaller rewards.

Crown it then collects, collates and analysis all this data to be further sold to other market research companies. I must say, they’ve definitely come with a unique model to collect genuine, first-hand consumer-data from the consumer himself and then sell it for a buck!

2. Cashkaro.com

Cashkaro.com - India's No.1 Cashback Site

Locations Covered: All India

Savings Category: All Online Spends

Available Platforms: Android, Website

After operating just as a website for quite some time, Cashkaro has recently come out with its android app. Cashkaro.com is a cashback site where you can earn real cashback on all your online spends. You can get cashbacks ranging from 2% to 100 % depending on the e-tailer and the product category. And the best part is you get all of this cashback as hard cash straight into your bank account. Believe it or not, I’ve saved upwards of Rs. 40,000 in the last couple of years using cashkaro. It’s by far one of the best cashback apps to save money on a regular basis.

Here‘s a previously published article about cashback sites and how you could make the most of them.
