Honey app

To help you save cash on Amazon, the Honey App searches for discounts. Honey will automatically verify the purchase price of the product you are currently showing from other Amazon vendors. If the app finds a lower price, an orange Honey button appears. If you buy from a particular Amazon merchant, it notes how much money you can save. Honey can also save money by automatically entering discount codes at several online retailers, including pizza shops, in addition to saving you money at Amazon, so you don’t have to manually peck each code into the discount box and hope the code is still valid. And, at other online retailers, you can also save extra money that will earn you a cash back bonus ranging from 1% to 15%.

Trim Financial Manager

Upon linking your Amazon account, Trim Financial Manager can also save you cash on Amazon by tracking your purchasing history. They submit the price change claim for free if a price drops, and you get to retain the whole credit. Trim, however does not track the arrival dates of shipments. If you need help tracking your subscriptions, you might consider Trim. They will check your spending habits by connecting your bank and credit card accounts to Trim, and send you a text message with all your subscriptions. Just text “Cancel______” if you want to cancel your movie gym membership. Trim will cancel the subscription free of charge.


CamelCamelCamel monitors current Amazon prices and will send you price drop updates on your watchlist for goods. You have probably noticed how prices will fluctuate on a regular basis if you have kept Amazon products in your cart or wish list and do not buy them for an extended period of time. Now you don’t have to look at rates on a regular basis anymore. Along with signing up for price updates, you can also access the price history of 18 million Amazon products. One last way to use CamelCamelCamel to find price drops is to click on “Top Price Drops” if you are not shopping for one specific product.

Amazon coupons

This isn’t necessarily an app, because Amazon Coupons is an Amazon extension. You should search the different types of shopping, however and look for possible savings. You can clip a coupon for 50 cents or save 20 per cent on Colgate toothbrushes if you want Skippy peanut butter. Taking a few minutes to browse at Amazon coupons will save you money if you are able to save money by buying a specific product. There is free use of this Amazon feature. Until you buy the product, the coupons you “clip” are stored electronically. For your next grocery store visit, the procedure is quite close to clipping coupons from the Sunday newspaper.


As you can get money back from over 2,000 online retailers, including Amazon, Ebates is a favorite cash back app. Although for most retailers, cash back incentives on Amazon are limited to a few categories, you can receive anywhere from 1 percent to 40 percent cash back on your entire order. You will earn 3% cash back on clothes, watches, lawn and garden, home renovation, and home services, for instance. Those incentive categories are subject to change, so testing Ebates before visiting Amazon always pays for it. After your last Amazon order, they have been able to add a new incentive category. Ebates can also be a great option because, at checkout, you can also clip digital Amazon coupons to save money. Plus, an app like Trim will continue to monitor the prices of the product to try and give you an even greater amount of savings.
