3 Best New Apps for Saving Money on Groceries, Travel and More

So, here's the deal -- we love nice things A LOT, right? But what do we love more than that? Saving money! While for many of us it often seems extremely difficult to have both, occasionally we stumble upon something awesome that encourages us to get everything we want in life. In this case, that "awesome thing" we're talking about is the website/app called Groupon.

Otherwise known as a global e-commerce marketplace offering activities, travel and more at a discounted price, Groupon has created quite a buzz in the lives of many, allowing them to find savings right in the comfort of their phone. While this is clearly incredible, the sad truth is, even that's not always enough. It's not that Groupon doesn't offer amazing money-saving deals, it's just that (per usual) we want more. Anytime we can save extra money, we're going for it. So today, we're helping you save EVEN MORE money on Groupon with super easy hacks you'll love.

Any and all friends who love deals! For every friend referred, you get $10 in Groupon dollars once they make their first purchase. Cool, right?
