Discover 12 apps to pay less for your shopping

For many, shopping is a real chore. What are we going to eat tonight? Won’t the little one scream if I don’t bring him his favorite cereal? And what do we miss at home, already? In addition to these concerns, inflation has brought an additional problem: that of the amount of the receipt. And at 20 minuteswe want you to deprive yourself as little as possible.

In parallel with the measures to support purchasing power adopted by Parliament in August, here are 12 free applications that should allow you to make some savings during your shopping. To your smartphones!

Apps that reimburse your shopping

No, we’re not kidding. Getting reimbursed for shopping is possible. This is particularly what the Quoty application offers. Operating on a cashback system, all you have to do is shop normally in the store, scan the receipt and send a photo of it to the application. Then, you will be reimbursed directly to your bank account for part of your shopping – the products concerned by the Quoty offer – within 48 hours. The Shopmium and iGraal Market applications work on the same principle, as does FidMarques, which has the particularity of rewarding consumer loyalty to certain brands. A concept that makes it possible to “get out of the negotiations between distributors and brands” to offer consumers other promotions, according to Pascale Hébel, economist specializing in consumer behavior and associate director at C-Ways, a consulting firm in marketing. “It also makes it possible to circumvent the Egalim law, which currently limits promotions on food products to 34%,” she adds.

Eco-responsible races also have the right to their cash-back system. If you are used to consuming locally at small merchants and/or restaurants, Keetiz is the application that we advise you to download. Register your card, pay for your shopping, and the refund for the products concerned will land on a kitty. After 10 euros, you can return the money to your bank account. On the other hand, if you prefer the consumption of organic products, we invite you to install Le Club Bio. The application can be used both in organic stores and in supermarkets.

Apps that compare prices

Otherwise, there is always the help of price comparators. A tool that is not new, since it has developed strongly “since the economic crisis of 2008”, underlines Pascale Hébel. “One of the precursors is the E. Leclerc brand with the creation – in 2006 – of their price comparison among all the supermarkets”, according to the economist.

And via an application, the use is ultra-simplified. By scanning the barcode of a product, Prixing will tell you in which supermarket it is the least expensive. Flashcode also allows you to find the best price for your products.

Anti-waste apps

On the anti-waste side, savings are also to be made. Here, no refund, but simply products at unbeatable prices. The Too Good to Go app offers unsold baskets from bakeries, restaurants, hotels and supermarkets at a third of the original price. Phenix, centered on mass distribution, provides between 60 and 70% reduction. A less heavy note, and a significant gesture to fight against food waste.

“Anti-waste allows two phenomena to intersect: the fight against inflation and the fight against waste, explains Pascale Hébel. The cashback effect, or seeking promotion at all costs, can lead to over-consumption. With the antigaspi, we do not buy stock”. In other words, we buy only what we really need. And it’s as good for the wallet as it is for the planet.

Apps to have your groceries delivered at a reduced price

This time, you don’t have time to go shopping? You are not physically able to go to the store, or you are simply lazy? And all this in the midst of an inflationary context? 20 minutes has found for you two collaborative delivery applications (from person to person) that will answer your prayers: Shopopop and Yper Shopper Whether you are the deliverer or the delivered, you are a winner. The first benefits from a tip of 5 to 10 euros for each race carried out, transferable to your bank account. The second benefits from cheaper delivery costs than for a professional home delivery service.

Beyond welcoming the concept of collaborative consumption, Pascale Hébel notes that it is often accompanied by eco-gestures. “The delivery people will prefer to make the journeys on foot or by bicycle rather than taking the car,” she notes.
