Confessions Of A Shopaholic

Say hello to your new addiction. Money-saving apps are all the rage, and we’ve rounded up the top five that’ll save you major spends on your next shopping spree. You’re totes welcome.


Spending big? Then PriceGrabber is your go-to app. All you’ve gotta do is take a quick scan of your desired item’s barcode, and the app’ll tell you if you can get it cheaper at a shop down the road or online. Our favourite feature? You can set an ideal price for the item you’re after, and you’ll get an alert when the product has been marked down to that price. Hurrah!


FrockAdvisor connects you with your favourite shops, stylists and bloggers, to help scout out a particular item. You simply post what you’re looking for, like a top with a particular pattern or a specific pair of jeans for example, and then let your online community find it for you. You’ll get a variety of options sent back, and you can simply choose the one that’s the best value. No dramas.

Amazon Price Check

If you’re a bit of cyber shopper you’ll love the Amazon Price Check app. Why? Cos it lets you search through millions of items using a barcode scan, text or image search to instantly display price comparisons, product descriptions and product reviews on the item you’re looking for. You can even use voice command to find your favourite buy, and all without leaving the house.


RetailMeNot is chocker with fantastic deals and coupon codes. That means next time you’re in River Island, Topshop, or any of your fave high-street haunts, you simply pull up the app, and search for a discount code to get it at a cut-down price. Deadly.


So this isn’t a money saving app, per se. WeStyle offers instant style advice, meaning that if you’re stuck in the fitting room and need a second opinion on that cute top you’re trying on, you simply snap a pic and share your look with the WeStyle online community. You’ll get real-time advice, meaning you’re less likely to splurge all your hard-earned cash on something you’ll regret buying when you get home.
