Save yourself some cash when shopping online with these fantastic apps


THIS year has been huge for online shopping. And while we’re being ushered back onto the high street and into shopping centres, many of us are still not keen on venturing out into potentially busy places.

But you don’t have to miss out on extra savings just because you’re indoors — these apps are fantastic for saving pounds when it comes to nabbing online hauls . . . 

It’s ‘appy days for the sofa surfer with these stress-free shopping ideas from home

TOPCASHBACK: Popular app offers both a mobile phone app and a browser extension, so you can earn dosh back on your online shopping whether on your smartphone or laptop.

There are hundreds of retailers that add cashback to your dashboard, which can be saved up and withdrawn at a later date. So every time you shop, you could be cashing in, and it all adds up.

HONEY: I love the Honey browser extension. It automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout with a single click — perfect for busy online shoppers who want to save without spending ages trawling the web for a code.

Simply visit to download it and you’re ready to get saving!

CAMELCAMELCAMEL: The useful website and browser extensions let shoppers enter the URL of an Amazon product to reveal its price history, to see if it has been sold at a lower price.

Handily, you can also set up price alerts so you’ll know when the item you want drops in price again. This is fantastic when checking to see if the price advertised is actually a good deal, or if it has fluctuated to appear so.

SWAGBUCKS: It may sound too good to be true but you can earn and have fun at the same time. If you download Swagbucks, not only can you rack up points shopping online, but also simply by watching videos and searching the web.

You can then use accrued points for gift cards for your favourite retailers, like Amazon, or get cash back from PayPal. Visit for more information on the app and browser extension.
