The week is almost over and I’m super excited to head back to Charlotte again for the weekend!
For today’s 5, I’ll be talking about my favorite iPhone apps because let’s face it, this girl loves technology.
I almost didn’t put this one because we all know about it & all use it. But then again, I couldn’t not list it because I’m obsessed! I’m using Facebook less and less these days. Sometimes I don’t feel like reading page-long statuses about politics or a play-by-play of the birth of your child (that’s what blogs are for, right?) so I usually check the ‘gram before anything else. Follow my daily happenings here!
Do you have one of those friends that you constantly have to remind to pay you back? Well, this is the app for you! Venmo is a super easy way to send/request money from others right from your phone. Easier than PayPal with a great interface, it almost makes sending money fun (did I just say that?). When you receive $$ it stays in your “bank” until you want to cash out and if you owe someone $$, it will come out of that fund first. Linking this to your bank account is free of charge and it has been a life saver for me & the roommates. PS. You get $5 every time you refer someone… cha ching! Checks are so 10 years ago!
I don’t think I could find a single person in this world who doesn’t like Target so here is an app for some extra savings. You can browse and add items to your barcode or you can also scan things while shopping in the store. Most items are 5% off but they will have specials that will have an even bigger discount. That combined with a REDcard is 10% and you know that adds up in this black hole of a store that sucks you in every time. Gotta love it!
This one kind of goes with Instagram but if you haven’t already signed up, here is your official invite! If you’re like me and follow a lot of fashion bloggers, you’ve seen these funny liketk.it links on their IG photos and may have wondered, what the heck is that?? Now you can get an email with outfit details when you “like” a photo… genius! Just enter your email here and you can set it up to send emails ASAP, daily, or weekly with all of your fashion faves.
If you love going out to eat, then this one is a no-brainer. Make reservations to your favorite restaurants any time by picking your party size, time, and even adding special requests. I love anything with a rewards system and with OpenTable you get 100 points for every reservation (1,000 for some places!). After you reach 2,000 points you get a $20 check mailed to you to use at any participating restaurant. Basically I love this app because I don’t have to call anyone or be put on hold- problem solved!
What are some of your favorite apps?? Please do tell because I’m always looking for fun ways that my iPhone can make life easier. Thanks for reading & have a fantastic weekend!
