Web Exclusive: Save some money with your smartphone

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - If you're looking to put more money in your wallet, look no further than the smartphone in your pocket.  There are some apps to save cash from the supermarket to the gas pump.

Put a smartphone to work and put more money in the bank.  That's the premise behind mobile apps that make saving dollars as simple as a click, swipe or scan. Slash the cash you spend on out-of-network ATM fees by using an app like "ATM Hunter."  The app developed by Mastercard for Apple, Android and Windows phones finds the closest ATMs with information on the associated bank, and can search by features like drive-thru, 24-hour service, and surcharges.

Before heading to the supermarket, check out an app like "Grocery IQ" by coupons.com for Apple and Android, which allows grocery shoppers to search for coupons on the go. 

The "Snip-Snap" app lets users scan printed coupons for discounts ranging from the supermarket to the mall to restaurants and save them in a digital format in a smartphone.  The app can remind you when certain coupons are about to expire and send alerts when in a store that has a corresponding coupon.

In recent weeks, we have seen a pinch at the pump.  Leave the car in the driveway and tap into a network of other cost-conscious drivers with an app like "Carticipate" for iPhone.  It matches car poolers based on schedule, destination and location.
