We like to bring our readers helpful information about anything that has to do with paying for college, but here’s a tidbit that can help you save some precious dough while going to college (confetti yay!) It’s a free app available for download in the iTunes  store called SKOUT DEALS. We like this nifty little tool because it compiles all of the deals for categories you select, that are available in your surrounding area. Also, there is a savings tracker that computes all of your discounts so that you can see what you are actually saving while using the app. You can search for things such as deals on restaurants, clothing, household goods, and more, both in your location or anywhere in the U.S. You can then bookmark those deals, or even buy right away online. Each deal you find is a minimum of 25% off the original price.
And there’s a bonus- freebies! YES! You get nice surprises in the form of freebies, just for you, just for using the app. Skout Deals is great because we can save time and find savings in one place without searching constantly for coupons, and we know college students love that! Oh, and, did we mention that Fund for Thought has a deal on Skout Deals? Check it out, and get a great deal!
