Coupon clipping may seem terribly 20th century, but checking out the weekly specials at big name stores can still save you heaps of dough (which can then be put towards more discretionary expenses; I'm thinking vanilla cones at McDonalds and/or your kid's college fund). Wishabi, Inc.'s Flipp brings browsing said flyers up to speed with mobile, putting the most recent ads from all your favorite brands right at your fingertips.
No more rifling through the daily newspaper - if you even have a subscription to a paper publication anymore (oh, these modern times!). Flipp automatically detects your location and downloads the most relevant weekly ads from stores like Walmart, IKEA, Sports Authority, Kroger, Sears, Big Lots, Walmart, and over 300 more. Browsing through them couldn't be easier; flip through their pages magazine-style, zooming in on especially intriguing products and "clipping" the ones you want to remember for later.
Want to find the absolute best deal of the day? Flipp includes a slider to highlight just the items offering the biggest discount. You can also filter your search by category, like Electronics, Grocery, or Kids.
The visual design is clean and attractive; I'd wager that it's actually an aesthetic improvement over paging through grubby newspaper.
I'd love if there were a way to add notes on clippings that you've made ("This sweater would be perfect for little Jimmy!"), or perhaps a way to integrate them with your scheduling book to make sure you hit up all the appropriate stores around town.
Flipp is a great way for folks who already take advantage of the weekly specials to make their saving habits that much more efficient. Note that Flipp is only available in the US and Canada.
