Millions of Americans hit the road for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Spending money on hotels, gas and entertainment costs like theme park tickets & party supplies can add up fast – but what if you haven’t budgeted for these fun expenses?
We found four money saving apps that you can use to save some cash during the holiday weekend to help stay on budget and reduce the amount of extra costs you charge to your credit card.
BiteHunter is a real-time location-based mobile app for finding great dining deals. You can access over 50k worth of local dining deals & discounts from across the country. The app also provides the restaurant’s contact details, photos, menus, reviews and recommendations. (http://bitehunter.com)
Whether you’re heading to the beach or the city over Independence Day weekend, use the GasBuddy app to find real-time gas prices by plugging in your zip code. (http://gasbuddy.com)
Leave the double-dipping for ice cream cones this holiday weekend – and not at the ATM. Often when you use an ATM not affiliated with your bank, the bank that owns the ATM and your own bank will charge you a fee. The Allpoint App will help you find one of Allpoint’s 35,000 locations in the U.S.closest to you. (www.allpointnetwork.com)
Still making last minute travel plans for the weekend or did your plans suddenly change? The HotelTonight app offers great deals on same-day bookings at hotels ranging from budget to 5 stars. The app updates every day at noon in the time zone you’re searching. Save $25 off your first booking with this code: FREE25. (https://www.hotetonight.com)
