I'm becoming more and more of a coupon clipper these days, but those little pieces of paper can take up a whole lot of room and are continuously scattered throughout my whole house. When I heard there was an app that could fix this - I was excited. Then, I downloaded that app and I was truly on board. I saved over $15 in my first week using the app.
SnipSnap Coupon App is FREE and allows you to store photos of all your coupons as well as letting you search through coupons others have clipped. It is currently covering most of the United States' east coast stores, so make sure to check if it is for stores in your area yet. Who wants to save money?

Last week I was shopping at Kohl's department store. I typed Kohl's into the search function and pulled up a 20% off coupon. I was very excited! The week before I was at JoAnn Fabrics and pulled up a 50% off one regularly priced item -- again, yay! The reviews say that most of the deals seem to be East Coast stores, but I live on the East Coast, so this works for me.
There is a camera function that allows the user to scan in their own paper coupons. Please note: manufacturer's coupons are not supported and paper coupons will still have to be kept. The user can scan in all their own coupons by photographing the front and back of the coupon and then setting the coupon to private (for one-time use coupons) or public if they should be shared with all users.
If you know what store you are shopping at, type in that store's name and see what public coupons are out there to be used. If you are unsure where you want to shop, click the "discover" button and find deals around you.
In addition to snipping your own coupons, the user can connect with friends and link social media profiles. I know this app has already saved me money and it's FREE! Try it out and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Toss out the scissors and let your iPhone camera do the clipping. Simply snap a picture of a printed offer, and SnipSnap magically converts all the text, images and barcodes into a mobile-optimized offer, which you can redeem off your screen. The app works at many national retailers, though not for manufacturer coupons (yet).
Gather up all the coupons you have lying around. Whether they're from the Sunday paper, the mail, or just ones you found buried in your purse or couch, SnipSnap will mobilize them in a matter of minutes. When you get to a store, pull up the coupon barcode, promo code, or photograph and present to the cashier to redeem.
Don't have any coupons handy to scan? Use the Discover screen of the app to see what coupons your friends and family have snipped. You can also snip from or follow our featured coupon bundles, and search our massive database of coupons to find one on demand. Best of all: We'll remind you when you enter a store you have coupons saved for, or when a coupon expiration date is nearing. Aw, snap!
• IN-STORE REMINDERS: When you enter a store, SnipSnap delivers a push notification to remind you what coupons you have saved there.
• SCANS ALL COUPONS: Whether you get coupons from the newspaper, mail, magazines or elsewhere, you can import all of them into the app.
• FOLLOW FRIENDS: Connect to friends from your address book, Facebook, or Twitter accounts. Option to share your couponing activity to Facebook.
• EXPIRATION DATE ALERTS: Get notified when your coupons' expiration dates are approaching.
• STORE SUCCESS RATING: See how successful other users have been in redeeming at your favorite stores.
LOCATION REPORTING: SnipSnap uses Apple's approved method for reporting location changes in the background. Note that this is only invoked and reported upon a significant location change event -- e.g. moving between two cell towers. As a result it does not typically cause the battery to be drained (unless you are, say, driving all day in the car). Location reporting can be easily disabled via the "Location Notifications" toggle in the Settings screen.
** Works at most retail, restaurant and local businesses. Manufacturer coupons (redeemed at grocery stores) not supported yet, but will work with a future app update. **
Amanda thinks coupons are awesome but finds the big bag of clipped coupons to be quite cumbersome!
