HOUSTON (KTRK) --Tax free weekend sales began at midnight, but don't save just the tax... we have a trifecta of savings.
Here's how to shop.
First start with the list and once you make that--- then it's time to find them on sale!
You can usually find the best deal on an app called Snip Snap. With this app, it allows you to scan, save and redeem printed coupons on your mobile phone so you don't have to carry a paper coupon.
Next use Shopkick. If you are shopping at the malls, this app can help. It's much like a shopping companion.
It alerts you to deals wherever are shopping and you also earn points just for walking in to a store.
If you are a Walmart shopper and not using their "savings catcher" app you are missing out on big savings.
With this app you scan your store receipt, the app checks advertised deals and you get back the difference.
And finally Target's CartWheel app. You choose the savings that are offered on the app, then at check out, the savings are calculated!
