Free Money-Saving Apps for Every College Student

Erin Andrews

August 15, 2017

There likely aren’t many college students who don’t have a smart phone loaded with helpful apps. However, it is unlikely that any of these apps are dedicated to helping them build their financial fortitude. This is why we created our list below—chock-full of apps designed to make it easier for college students of any age to save money.

Mint—This personal finance app from Intuit is a great tool to easily track spending and learn how to budget…and can also help cut down on calls to the “Bank of Mom and Dad.”

Square Cash—Small debts are often accrued in college, but now it’s easier than ever to make good on paying them back—or collect on them. A few bucks borrowed or lent for a beer or a latte is easily repaid or collected using Square Cash. This app allows a user to send from or receive money to their bank account with no fee.

ATM Hunter—ATM fees can add up. MasterCard’s ATM Hunter helps students locate the nearest ATM and enables them to filter locations based on hours of operation, fees and more.

mySupermarket—Using this app allows students to avoid impulse buys and find the best deals on supermarket items. The app is great for food shopping online or in a store.

Big Oven—Getting great deals on grocery items is a good way to save money, but not if food is wasted by tossing leftovers. The Big Oven app helps students figure out ways to thriftily use food they’ve purchased. The app also offers more than 350,000 recipes and the ability to manage grocery lists.

Share our list with a college student you know. It’s a great start toward managing money wisely while in school.
