Did you know that you can save money by using apps? These days, there are thousands of apps that can help you save money and time.

To make it easier for you to find the right apps for you, I've put together a list of the best money saving apps.

Not all of these apps are free, but they're all at least worth trying out.

1. Acorns

Acorns is a mobile app that rounds up your everyday purchases and invests the change in the stock market.

It's a great way to invest small amounts of money to see how you like the stock market. There are two fees with Acorns.

The first is a monthly $1 fee.

The second is the investment fee for the stocks you own.

The app has two ways of investing your money.

First is the Acorns Core. With the Acorns Core, you're charged a $1 monthly fee to invest your money, and the company takes 1.25% out of your investment every year.

Second is the Acorns Later plan, which charges $2 to invest your money, but 0.25% every year.

It's a great app for beginners who want to start investing their money.

2. Ibotta

Ibotta is an app that gives you cash back for shopping.

It's easy to use and you can earn some good money by using it.

How it works is that you take a picture of your receipt from your phone, and the app will do the rest.

It will find the items you bought, and give you cash back for those items.

You can also earn money by leaving product reviews, and by inviting your friends to use the app.

Once you've earned $5, your money is sent to your PayPal account.

3.  Rakuten Ebates

You can also use it to earn money on other shopping sites, like Target, Walmart, and many more.

4. Walmart Shopping & Grocery

5. Amazon

Amazon is a mobile app that lets you shop at Amazon using your phone and earn cash back.

The app has a barcode scanner that you can use to scan the products you want to buy, then it will show you the price of the item at different stores.

Then you can compare the prices of the items in stores to see which store has the lowest price, then you can buy it from that store.

6. Drop

Drop is a mobile app that helps you save money on your restaurant bills.

It works by giving you a card when you're at the restaurant.

Once you have your card, you just pay for your meal with the card, and you'll get a portion of your meal money back.

You can use that money towards your next meal at the restaurant.
