Are you looking to save time and money?
What if I said you could live video chat with a doctor and book an appointment at home instead of having to go to the hospital?
Gone are the days when apps were simply used for entertainment and playing games.
Now we can set up doctors appointments, check out reviews of a restaurant before we visit it, and use coupons without having to actually clip out coupons.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of apps to choose from to download on your phone. But which apps are the best? Which apps will make you a more productive person, while also saving money at the same time?
Read below to find out how you can save time and money with these free apps.
Ibotta is a free app that gives you cash back for making purchases on things like groceries, clothes, toiletries, and much more!
I use the app on a regular basis. Before I visit a grocery store or make any kind of purchase in-person, I check the Ibotta app to see what kind of cash back I can get. Currently, there are deals like getting up to $2 off toothpaste, up to 20% cash back from Groupon, $1.50 off pasta, and so much more.
It's silly not to use Ibotta if you're a regular grocery shopper and also have to buy things like clothes, toiletries, and pretty much anything else you'd find at a store like Walmart or Amazon.
If you sign up now, you can get $10 in your account by using my link here.
GasBuddy allows you to find the cheapest gas prices in your area. If you drive a lot, this app is a must. If you report gas prices, you'll earn points toward a weekly prize that will go toward gas.
3. Doctor on Demand
Cost: $49 any time you book a video doctors appointment
Do you not have health insurance or don't feel like taking a trip to urgent care?
With Doctor on Demand, you have access to a doctor, therapist, pediatrician, and psychologist. You and the specialist will talk 1-1 through live video about your symptoms and how you're feeling all from the comfort of your home.
ZocDoc is basically the YELP of the medical field. You can look up reviews for a medical professional in your insurance network at no cost at all.
You can even filter in your location, insurance network, and a few other things. You also have the option of booking with your doctor through the app.

I used this app on my trip to Seattle, and it saved me a ton of money.
The app saves you money on last minute bookings up to 2 am and book multiple nights at the same time. It's pretty awesome!
Groupon is great for saving on travel, clothing, services such as massages and haircuts, and tons of other items. I've personally bought clothing, electronics, makeup, and services through Groupon. To double save, I go on Ibotta and click on Groupon, and save up to 12% on purchases.
My friends recently used Triplog to get to their new home on the east coast, and it helped them save a lot of money. Triplog automatically tracks your mileage as well as tracks your expenses. This is great if you often take road trips and need to keep track of expenses or if your work pays for gas.
If you're self-employed, this app will make it easier to keep track of mileage, as you can deduct it off your taxes each year.
8. Discount Calculator
Discount Calculator can quickly tell you how much money you'll save on a product when it's discounted. Not only that, but it will also tell you the tax that is involved.
Poshmark makes it really easy to buy and sell clothing all from your phone.
You can upload photos of your own clothing (it even gives you tips on how to make sure your clothing and accessories sell). There's also tons of clothing to choose from, brand by brand, which you can easily filter out and pick what you want to see.
Cost: Free and has upgrades
Evernote allows you to write down notes whenever you have a thought or some piece of information you need to remember. It's also great for time management, keeping track of expenses, and staying productive.
Using apps can make saving money a lot easier since everything can be organized and saved on your phone. You can easily access anything on your phone, see how much you're saving, and get the cheapest deals sent right to your phone.
