If you’ve made the iPhone a part of your budget, you might as well dive into all the cool apps the phone has to offer.

Here are some of the best couponing apps currently available.
If you’re an “extreme couponer,” you’ll love this app. With SnipSnap, you simply snap a picture of a coupon with your phone. The app captures the photo, stores the expiration date, and provides you with in-store reminders.
And that’s not all! You can even connect with other friends and share coupons.
Forget about clipping coupons in the newspaper. This app will tell you about special deals and coupons in your geographic area. A lot of the coupons come straight from the retailers, so they might even be exclusive deals you won’t find in other places.
If you like a coupon, save it and make sure the cashier scans it at the register. No paper needed!
The cool thing about Coupon Sherpa is that you can use it as an app or a website. With the website, you’ll get connected to online deals from retailers. With the app, you’ll have access in-store coupons—even for grocery stores. It’s the best of both worlds.
Not only does Grocery iQ help you find coupons at all your favorite grocery stores, it also helps you build a shopping list using a database that’s searchable by text, barcode and voice. You can also sync your shopping lists and coupons with their website. Grocery iQ says they are “the go-to app for grocery deals and coupons.
If you like daily discounts and deals but you don’t want your inbox flooded with emails every day, then you might enjoy Yipit. This app will compile all the daily deals in your area that might interest you into one email.
Of course, there are literally hundreds of other couponing and money-saving apps out there, but hopefully this list will give you a head start if you are new in the smartphone world.
And always remember, never buy an item just because you have a coupon. Make sure it still fits into your budget and it’s something you need.
