One of the best road trips I ever took was a trip last year with my family from Atlanta to Colorado Springs. We loaded up the minivan with two kids and made that 26-hour trek across country.
My kids were 3 and 5 at the time, so you're probably thinking I'm insane. Well, it was a fabulous trip. We made lots of stops, enjoyed a little sight-seeing, and did it all on a budget.
One of the best ways that I saved us money on that trip was by using the Valpak App on my phone for saving money at restaurants along the way.
A lot of people don't realize that they can download this awesome app and save immediately with it at places in their area. I ended up finding coupons for restaurants, but there was so much more available than that.
The Valpak app has coupons for local businesses like oil change locations, home improvement stores, grocery stores and more! My initial introduction to the app was on this trip, because Valpak helped cover my travel expenses.
As soon as I downloaded the app I could not believe how I had survived before having it. Here are three reasons I love this app:
1. Easy to use. It's a no-fuss app that helps you find coupons in you area, and the local businesses accept the coupons without issue.
2. Lots of coupons! Seriously, I could not believe how many coupons were available, even in my hometown. How was it that I was surviving without this app?
3. Great savings! Who doesn't love to save money? And when you can do it by pulling out an app, it just makes it even more cool to use coupons. Even the guys will want to use it! Getting a buy one get one free deal on a meal just by pulling out my phone always makes me super happy!
