I absolutely love this app. If you’re wondering if it’s right for you, here’s a great video on how it works.

Whether it’s a 25% off coupon or a free appetizer at dinner, they’ve got it on the RetailMeNot app. Especially for clothes stores and restaurants, RetailMeNot has been extremely helpful. They list all of the ways that the internet knows to save money on an item or at a store. Some of the coupons won’t work, but there are still some that work perfectly and will save you serious cash.
