For caregivers on a tight budget, going grocery shopping might be a stressful experience. Comparing prices on similar items across several stores might be the best way to save money, but it's time consuming and difficult. The Krazy Coupon Lady app lets caregivers pick stores they already shop at to find discounts on items they may need to buy.
When users first open they Krazy Coupon Lady app, they can give the app permission to access their location and then choose from a list of local stores they'd like to use coupons for. Big chain stores are included in the search, such as CVS, Meijer, Family Dollar, Whole Foods, Target, etc.
Then users need to decide whether or not they'd like to receive notifications and emails from the app. The notifications would be to let caregivers know when there are new coupons for the stores they designated during set up.
The home screen on the app shows available coupons, too. Users can scroll through the selections and see if there's anything they'd like to buy. When caregivers see a deal they'd like to take advantage of, they can click the heart in the upper right hand corner of the screen and the coupon will save to their list of favorites.
Some of the "coupons" incorporate in-store sales and discounts from other apps, such as Ibotta. In general, the deals in-store have a photo of the price tag attached for reference. Every entry has a detailed view showing where the savings listed came from and how to redeem them. Sometimes it's a combination of in-store deals, manufacurer coupons and app deals. Users can make a list of coupons they'd like to use and another shopping list of items they need to buy regardless.
The Tips area of the app also shows a feed of more news-like content, such as companies mailing out free samples and articles about the retail world. The Brags section of the app allows users to post a photo of their shopping haul and share the savings they received with other users.
The Krazy Coupon Lady app is available for Apple and Android platforms.
