Save Money with Flipp + The Best Free Apps for Back to School & $50 GC Giveaway

Back to school shopping…love it or hate it? It seems like most people I know either really like it or absolutely dread it. There’s not too many who feel indifferent. So where do you stand? I’m one of those people who loves it! I always liked school growing up and now that my kids are in school, I think it’s fun to shop for new clothes and supplies. The only thing I don’t like it it seems like prices just keep going up. When you have more than one kid in school it can really add up. That’s why I am super excited to introduce you to Flipp, the must-have weekly shopping app. Flipp helps you save big on everything you need to head back to school this fall — and beyond!

Flipp Shopping AppFlipp brings the paper flyer to the digital age in an engaging and exciting way. The app aggregates all your favorite circulars onto one digital device for access anywhere, anytime. You can browse, search for specific items (such as backpacks, cereal, clothes), search for a specific savings amount, clip the items you want to buy and even create shopping lists right in the app to start the shopping experience beforehand or in the store.

Flipp Shopping App

I downloaded Flipp last weekend and made sure to check it out on Sunday when the new ads came out. It was so easy to flip through my favorite ads (Target, Kohl’s, Dick’s, King Soopers, etc.). I was able to search for items I was looking for and add them to my shopping list. I really like that I can view all the ads in one place and it’s so much easier to see what is on sale, without having to look the ads up online or go in-store. Plus, it helps you make a plan and set a budget before you head out to shop!

If you either don’t get the newspaper or you prefer to do things digitally, Flipp is a fantastic way for you to view the weekly circulars and save! Download Flipp now from the App Store or Google Play.
