(KETK) - Tyler Tx — If you are like many Americans, the holiday season involves a lot of shopping. It can be overwhelming making sure you get everyone on your list. And it can also be expensive.
But not to fret, there are many different ways to save money during the holidays. The most common recently, is by using smartphone apps.
"For us it's important to have savings during the holidays because we have birthdays and Christmas within a week apart," said Tracey Phillips, who uses her smartphone to save money during the holidays. "So in order for us to have nice things for both it's important that we save and get the best bang for our buck."
These apps are easy to use and most of them are free. The best shopping saving app we were able to find is called 'ShopKick.' All you have to do is scan certain items throughout the store and you earn points. Then, once you reach a certain number of points you can earn gift cards to stores of your choosing.
"Being able to come in and scan the items you're looking for and see if there's a discount and then find out if there's coupons or deals available will help because I don't have time to sit at home and look ahead of time," said Robin Brooks.
