Since you carry your phone everywhere, having apps to help you save money is absolutely essential! Whether you’re at the grocery store, the mall or on the road, the following nine apps to help you save money will assist you in getting great deals, cheap gas and awesome discounts!

1. The Coupons App

This is one of my favorite apps to help you save money because it offers coupons for almost any store. It compiles all the coupons currently in effect and lists them. You can find coupons for Dunkin Donuts, Target and even Lowe's. Just scroll down the list every once in awhile or before you go shopping and see if you can use any of the coupons! If so, you can email them to yourself and print them out or share them on any social network. Most of the time, if you click on a coupon, it’ll launch your internet browser.

2. Shop Savvy

I really like this app as well. You scan any barcode. For example, take your favorite face scrub and scan the barcode. This app will search for the best deal out there. How cool is that? Plus, you can use this app anywhere. I like to use it before I leave the house, but if I find an item that I’m debating on buying in the store, this app comes in handy with comparing prices.

3. Gas Buddy

Using this app will definitely save you money at the gas pump! It finds you the cheapest gas around! Plus, it’s a free app! How much better can it get? With gas prices on the rise, you should definitely keep this app handy!

4. RepairPal

This app is so cool! I actually didn’t know it existed until recently; I wish I'd found it sooner! It finds the best estimate around for various car repairs and services. Plus, you can also record and schedule all of your repairs and services in one easy place.

5. PageOnce Money & Bills

This app is similar to Mint.com Personal Finance, except that you can pay your bills directly from the app! It compiles your cash, credit cards and investments too! And who doesn’t like the fact that it’s free too?

6. CardStar

Do you have a ton of royalty cards? From supermarkets to your favorite restaurants, this app compiles your entire rewards card collection in one place.

8. SmartyPig

This app is a virtual piggy bank! You set up different goals and contribute to them as often as you’d like. Perhaps you want to save for a vacation or a new car. All you have to do is set the goal, when you want the goal to be accomplished and the app will suggest how much you should contribute to it. Once the amount is set, the money is automatically taken out of the account once a month, twice a month or every fourteen days! It’s all up to you!

That being said, with all of these apps, you’ll definitely be saving some serious money! Do you use any of these apps already? If so, which ones? If not, do you have another app to share?
