Investing in tech is always worthwhile if you do the research, getting the right product for your needs will save time and money in the future. These days there’s an added benefit; you can pick out a few apps that are designed to help you save money elsewhere, for the short and long term. At Techscheme we’re all about saving you money on your tech products (up to 12% off everything), so we’ve gone and searched out the best apps to keep that money-saving train rolling.
We’ll start with an app that will help you out whenever you need to do a food shop. Through mySupermarket you can save a ton on your weekly shop. All you have to do is input everything you’re planning on buying and it will show you which major supermarkets have them at the lowest price, or even on special offer.
Whether you’re shopping online or in store it’s an absolute game changer. Even if you like to go in and have a look around before deciding, the apps barcode scanner will help you find out if you’re getting value for money where you are, or if it might be worth popping further down the road. It’s a great everyday money saver and if you’re looking for an everyday mobile on a budget, look no further than the Moto G5.
The G5 is one of the best low-cost mobile phones on the market. With processing power, cameras and a display that all compare favourably with its rivals in its price bracket, we at Techscheme will help save you even more on the mobile – up to £20 to be exact.
Next up is an app that’s great for those always on the lookout for a good deal. Vouchercloud is an app that scours the web and puts together all the offers it can find into one easy to use window. Everything from restaurants to retail stores to holiday brokers and more are available, with a handy ‘near me’ search tool to seek out the best deals in your local area.
All you have to do is hit the ‘use voucher’ button on the app when you’re ready to pay and show the code to staff in store. A nice little bonus feature lets you track your savings, which means you can quantify how much the app has saved you over time.
If you’re after the best, for less, then the iPhone 7 Plus at Techscheme is the phone for you. It’s, without a doubt, the best mobile Apple has ever made and at its top specifications, you can pick it from Techscheme with up to £110 off.
This next one is designed to get you the best deals, merely it is there to stop you from overspending. It’s a fantastic money manager that lets you check all your incomings and outgoings all in one place. Whether that’s from your current account, credit card or savings account, you only have to log in once to get an accurate picture of all your finances.
With a bit of help from you, it’ll categorise all your transactions so that you can easily see where you can cut back, creating colourful charts that make it easier to process the information. This is the app for you if you need to get your spending under control, perhaps you don’t need to be picking up those meal deals at lunchtime?
Seeing the big picture is great, if you want a tablet that’ll get the best view of your finances why not try the new iPad Pro 10.5-inch. It’s just out and with that comes the benefit of faster, more powerful processing. At Techscheme we can save you up to £122 on the new Pro.
Lastly, there’s Chip, a money management app that distinguishes itself by taking an active role in your finances. Compatible with pretty much every major UK bank, Chip will use its algorithm to work out how much you can afford to save every few days without majorly affecting your spending. It will then pull out what you can afford and send it to a separate savings account.
You can tweak it, of course, to save more or less money each month and you can cancel and make your own deposits. If you’re a little squeamish about an app playing around in your money, Chip promises that if you end up going into your overdraft because of a savings payment, it’ll replace the cash, pay the charges and give you a £10 savings boost.
There’s no such thing as mobile that does everything for you, but the closest thing is mobile that will do anything you want it to. The Samsung Galaxy S8 comes close, incredibly powerful and super-fast with a stunning infinity screen display, it’s the best Android Mobile around. Pick it up at Techscheme with savings of up to £82.
|iPad Pro 10.5” 512GB||£1,019.00||£122.28||
|iPhone 7 Plus 256GB||£919.00||£110.28||
|Samsung Galaxy S8||£689.00||£82.68||
