Saving money is difficult, we all know this, but today we are going to give you a few tips on how to make the most out your money by using simple tricks that anyone with a smartphone can do.
Using Your Smartphone to Save You Money – Top Tips
Local petrol stations can be very expensive, why not shop around find better deals on petrol by travelling slightly further than just your nearest filling station. Just because your local petrol station is minutes down the road, that doesn’t make it the best option. By using free location-based web applications to find your nearest cheap filling station in your area, a short detour could save you up to £200 a year. Take a look at websites like petrolprices.com to find out where your nearest cheaper petrol station is.
It is easy to lose track of your finances, especially in today’s world where contact-less payments seem to be revolutionising the way in which we spend and save our money. Free to download mobile apps are becoming ever more popular with how we as a nation keep track and deal with our finances with some applications even using your spending habits to work out what you can afford to save.
Collect those vouchers
All the savvy savers cut out and keep money-off coupons, but if you don’t have time to do that, try and look around at voucher designated websites that are set up to give you the best possible deals out there. Use sites like wowcher.com to save yourself the hassle of flicking through newspapers and magazines for vouchers to help your online shop.
Buying train tickets in advance can save as much as 43% on a journey.* Simply sign up to your local train line provider and add your journey details. You’ll then get an email when cheap advance tickets go on sale and info of when they’re likely to rise in price.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that one car is cheaper than two and with rising fuel prices and stricter M.O.T’s on older cars remaining on the road, it makes it harder to justify keeping hold of an older car to save money, and actually works out to be more expensive in the long run. So why not car share? Do you have a work colleague or friend who travels from close to where you live? Car sharing makes more sense than ever!
