By PaulOBrien. Regular readers will know that I love a good bargain and love a good freebie even more! Your phone is a great tool for getting free or discounted stuff when you're out and about, so here's some of our favourite apps and how you can use them to save money! Wuntu is the loyalty application for Three customers.
It has some great deals such as free Costa Coffees, discount food at Bella Italia and Cafe Rouge, free sweets and much more. Deals typically arrive at 8: You can pick them up for 99p in most supermarkets or for free from the Three website. You'll need an unlocked or dual SIM phone to activate of course, but once you've set up the app, you can take the SIM back out.
Since you're getting cool free stuff from 3, it might be nice to give a little back by topping up or using as your secondary network. O2 Priority. O2's Priority is similar to Wuntu but it was 'the original' app of this type. As with Wuntu deals come and go, but the headline offer from Priority is a free Caffe Nero drink every Tuesday! As an added bonus, you still get a free loyalty stamp in the Nero app and even large size drinks are covered.

The best offers tend to be around 'occasions' chocolates for mothers day, for example but it's worth having installed and checking in frequently. Note that O2's policy has changed recently, and Priority can only be activated using SIM cards with credit, so it's going to cost you 10 quid to get up and running that's the minimum top up. It's probably worth it though, you could make that back in less than a month in free coffees alone. Now for something completely different. Curve is a debit card that aggregates all your other cards.
It works like this - sign up to Curve, get your free card in the post, install the app, associate all your other cards and you're ready to go. You can spend out and about with the contactless card and choose which one it maps to instantly in the app. Paid for something on the wrong card? You can use the 'back in time' feature to change it post-payment.
The app has a reward card built in where you can earn credit by spending at certain merchants or by referring friends. There are lots of other features such as purchase insights, instant card lock, super cheap currency exchange, fee free cash withdrawal from credit cards and much more. Google Pay support will be coming soon too, which will really make it amazing. I love Curve and use it all the time. Free money! Quidco is one of the two major 'cashback' players in the UK. If you ever buy anything online, you should always check Quidco and its rival TopCashback to see if cashback is available.
The way it works is like this - you start at the cashback site, sign in, complete your purchase and then you receive a percentage of your purchase back as 'credit' this varies per merchant and is listed on the cashback site. This can then be withdrawn when it reaches a certain threshold to your bank account or to gift vouchers for other merchants with a percentage bonus.
It works really well and is absolutely a no-brainer, as you're going to earn money on things you'd be buying anyway! Quidco ClickSnap. Quidco ClickSnap is a Quidco specific service designed for use in-store. It has its own app, but shares the account with the main Quidco site. ClickSnap works by showing you a list of offers at the main supermarkets. A recent one was 'get a free bar of Galaxy chocolate' for example. In order to redeem, you buy the item at the designated supermarket, snap a picture of the receipt, upload it in the app then the cost is returned to you as credit.
This works particularly well as often the credited amount is more than what you actually paid if, for example, the item was on a special offer , so you can get the goods and end up in profit! TopCashBack is a Quidco rival and works in exactly the same way. It has its own Clicksnap like service although it doesn't have a dedicated app for this and quite often offers differ between the two services - it's worth being signed up to both. Sign up at the TopCashBack website and try and remember to use it!
Now for something a little bit different.
VoucherCloud is all about saving money, although the app does occasionally have freebies too. Codes are broken down into categories and also displayed on a map so you can spot local deals. Alerting functionality is available, although I've found this to be a bit of a battery drain.
Vouchercloud is particularly good for discounts on restaurants, although you need to be careful as many deals don't apply at the weekend.
There is also a 'competitions' section. Voip voice over internet protocol allows you to make free phone calls via your computer all over the world. Several companies offer Voip services, but the best known is Skype — it has more than million accounts worldwide. You can speak as long as you like, whenever you like, wherever you like. Your phone bill can quickly rack up if you need to make a call to a premium rate number. Just be aware that the alternative numbers are listed by other users and are not verified.

Thanks to all those who submitted honest reviews, helped identify a few issues we didn't identify during testing. Hope they are all cleared up now. Completely redesigned for windows 8. Following a misfiring update, it's back. Thanks for fixing! Very useful app, 4 stars because to me the display seems just a tad cluttered on a 10" tablet in "view deal" mode. That might just be my eyesight deteriorating in which case it's 4 stars because it's my duty to be curmudgeonly as a senior reviewer.
Nice one. I use this app on every device, it's really good - found loads of great deals. This version now just closes itself after loading. Uninstalled and reinstalled - no difference. Please fix.

I used to use this app all the time but has now stopped loading any content. Fed up with this app repeatedly asking me to allow it to run in the background. How many times do I have to say NO? And why does it want to anyhow?
There's no legitimate reason for it to do so. Have been visiting the website for a few years - this app is really handy when on the go - don't need to miss out on any great deals now!

I love this app, it works very smoothly and very quickly and easy to use Does everything I need it to do and allows a quick and convenient way to browse through the deals. Since the latest update when clicking on a deal it takes you straight to the website that is hosting the deal rather than showing the hotuk deals page. This is quite annoying and means one extra click to see the comments for that deal.
Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing that changes the default action? Live tile seems to be working for me now since the latest update it has never worked before for me. There was a problem with a recent update but after contacting the developer he has now fixed the black screen problem. First time I have installed this on my windows surface and all I get is a black screen. Stay informed about special deals, the latest products, events and more from Microsoft Store.
