What college student isn’t looking for a few simple ways to save a few bucks? While tuition fees may be beyond your control, there are plenty of other ways to reduce your costs while in school thanks to today’s apps. We’ve rounded up six of our favorite money-saving apps for students which make it easier than ever to practice frugality while still having your fair share of fun. Let’s count them down.

1. Groupon
If you love a good discount and are willing to try new things, Groupon is not only a great way to save money, but also a terrific avenue for discovering what your city or town has to offer.

Groupon acts as a “middleman” connecting consumers with everything from local restaurant deals to significant discounts -- usually around 50 percent or more -- on both online and local products and services. Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive meal, a new laptop or a mani-pedi, you never know what Groupon’s deal-of-the-day will deliver. Don’t like today’s offerings? You’ll have more to pick from tomorrow.

One caveat? Groupon doesn’t reward dalliers. If you see something you like, act fast or it may disappear. Available for iOS, Android, and Windows.

2. ibotta
Image getting cash back every time you shop at your favorite stores. Well, if you’ve got a mobile phone, that’s exactly what ibotta delivers.

From everyday student staples like bread, milk and alcohol to splurges like cute boots, clothing and cosmetics, the savings potential is near-endless with ibotta. It’s easy too. Just download the free app, unlock rebates on thousands of different products, buy in-store, then upload your receipt to cash in.

The best part? You don’t have to worry about points and other distractions. ibatta is all about cold hard cash.

One warning? ibotta can quickly become an addiction, but there are certainly worse problems to have! Available for iOS and Android.

3. Tun
While student discounts are in abundance supply, they can sometimes be challenging to track down. Tun was created with one reason in mind -- to help college students optimize the many student discounts available to them. From yoga classes to Zipcars, Tun rounds up deals and discounts offered by more than 15,000 businesses -- both in your area and online -- and presents them to you in one easily accessible place.

Next semester’s reading list got you down? Don’t miss Tum’s special section just for textbook savings. Available for iOS and Android.
