If your budget is tight for Christmas, there are a few holiday shopping apps that will help you get some great last-minute deals on gifts. These apps will  make shopping easier, faster — and cheaper!

Doing some final shopping online? Check out RetailMeNot first. It is a coupon app that lets users search their favorite retailers to see if there may be an offer that applies to a purchase they want to make. It can help  save  you a few bucks. Users can also search the app for their favorite retailers to discover in-store offers.”Additionally, users can browse the app for the overall top deals of the day, as curated by RetailMeNot. And whenever users walk by a shopping center, a mall or any place with stores, the app will shoot users a notification with deals for nearby retailers,” reports The Los Angeles Times. 

It’s available for iOS and Android.When you are shopping in the store, click on RedLaser to quickly scan items to find their prices at other stores, finding products for the lowest cost. Use the app also to find nearby deals and online coupons that are available. RedLaser is available for iOS and Android.If you have never tried the Ebay app, this is a good time to do so.  Before buying it at store, first see if it is available on Ebay through the app and chances are the item may be available for less than it is at traditional retailers.

“And if users are not sure what you want to purchase, the Ebay app has “Deals” and “My Feed” sections that can help them find what they want,” reports The Times. The app is useable on iOS and Android.

Looking to get a certain gift for the best price? Havvit is an app that tracks prices. Users can search for items, choose to track them and set the price at which they want to pay for the item. And, users can tell the app their favorite stores, brands and products, which will help Havvit present users with items they may want to buy. This one’s only available on iOS.
