Gas Buddy

With features such as Never Pay Full Price at The Pump and Find the Best Gas Price or Save at The Pump By Always Knowing What Station Has The Cheapest Price…this is an easy app to love!  GasBuddy allows you to save at the pump by always keeping you in-the-know about which station has the lowest price.  You can use this app all over the US and gas prices are updated in real-time.  As if that isn’t enough to sell you on this powerhouse FREE app, users can also save additional money on gas by using the app’s GasBack feature.  The company issues an optional debit card and, if you are willing to make your purchases with that card, you will save $0.10 per gallon on your first fill and $0.05 per gallon for every fill-up after that.  You can also earn cashback by shopping a variety of online retailer sites from within the app.

Turo

Airbnb for your car…what a fantastic idea!  Too late, because Turo beat us all to it.  This app allows users to find an alternative to a rental car.  You can also earn money by sharing your own car.  The app can connect you with an every-day car or a specialty car, as well.  Some options even have the car delivered TO you.
