Extreme couponers are kind of — intense.
But since everyone would love to get groceries for free, extreme couponers have become not only fascinating but the subject of envy.
Now anyone can experience the thrill of something for almost nothing with five money-saving apps that the pros use.
Shopami for Shopaholics
Gathering and sorting coupons used to take days.
Extreme couponers can attest to countless hours clipping paper, sorting emails with deal notifications, and downloading coupon codes.
Inevitably, a deal is missed because it’s tough to manage the flood of emails in an inbox. Not anymore.
Now there’s Shopami, which eliminates the coupon organizing time suck that serious bargain hunters used to spend trolling for deals and then grouping them by store and by product. Not to mention the time spent at the store register scrolling through promo codes.
Forget all of that busywork because now there is a genius app that does it for you.
Here’s how it works. After the Shopami download, enter the email address that receives the coupons and deals (several can be entered). Shopami has a geo-locator that notes your locations, and then sends notification of nearby deals. Imagine heading to a retail outlet like the Banana Republic or J Crew, and having the app send coupon codes automatically.
While the app doesn’t support all the retailers — yet. A partial list includes:
● Bed Bath& Beyond
● Crate & Barrel
● Macy’s Inc.
● Old Navy
● Urban Outfitters
● Pottery Barn
● Victoria’s Secret
Shopami is a very useful app that is just in time for the holiday season — or a New Year’s resolution that includes becoming an extreme couponer.

Savings Catcher Nets the Best Deals
Walmart’s Savings Catcher is a big secret that extreme couponers are privy to.
Everyone already knows that the big box retailer is the King of Low Prices. But it’s this smart savings site that helps ensure that Walmart beats competitor pricing every – single – time.
Want to know how Walmart does it? Here’s how Savings Catcher guarantees consumers get the best prices at Walmart.
● First, download the Savings Catcher app.
● Second, go shopping at Walmart.
● Third, scan the Walmart barcode receipt.
● The Savings Catcher app searches competitors in the area to find a better price.
● If a better price is found, Savings Catcher will credit back the difference between the purchase price and competitor price. Consumers can cash out the difference in a Walmart eGift card.
Even better news is the app is free.
The biggest catch is that consumers cannot shop online — a store visit is a mandatory part of the process.
Of course, the competitor item must match the purchased item exactly. But this is a simple way for extreme couponers to guarantee the best price for any item purchased at Walmart.
