Cut Back On Clutter

Flipp compiles hordes of retail store ads into one easy-to-use platform. Simply type in your zip code or allow the app to locate you, and all the best store ads in your area will appear on one scrollable screen. Underneath each thumbnail photo of a store’s ad packet is the name of the store and the expiration date of the ad. Click on an ad for a close-up of your flyer or brochure of interest.

If you’d rather search by store name or a particular item, the search function is ready and available to serve you in that capacity. Though the ad does not allow for narrowing down an area geographically, it will find stores or products within an approximate 50-mile radius of you via the search function. If you are loyal to one or more stores, just tag them as your favorites. Instead of scrolling through all the available ads, tap the favorites tab and cut straight to the chase, viewing only the flyers you want and need.

 

More Savings At A Swipe

Getting the scissors out and snipping away at the Sunday newspaper may be thrifty, but it sure is a time suck. With Flipp, you don’t have to worry about which flyer you didn’t get or which coupon you didn’t clip. With over 300 available retail stores including all the major names like Target, Best Buy and Wal-Mart as well as smaller local grocery and budget stores, all deals are compiled in once place. Once you open an ad, just tap on an item to ‘clip’ it to your ‘clippings’ page. Your ‘clippings’ page keeps track of every deal that catches your eye and notifies you when an ad has expired. A sliding sale scale located at the bottom left of the screen allows you to narrow down deals according to percentage discounted.

Though the application’s brief instructional upon opening says you can tap and hold an item to access item details, the information box that is actually provided shows nothing more than a zoomed-in version of the ad. Double tapping an item will also activate a zoom feature.
