Gettin' techy wit it, Na na na na na nana, Na na na na nana.

SAVANNAH — • Redbox

Aside from the convenience of being able to see all the movies in the RedBox's in my area right from my phone, I have never had an app that has given me more free stuff. RedBox is always gifting me free rentals, and I guess that's why I keep coming back. Getting the app and signing up for their emails is definitely worth it. Out of all the retailer apps, RedBox is the most loyal to its fans.

•Starbucks

I've mentioned Starbucks' app a few times, but there's a reason it always makes it on my fav's list. All you have to do is sign up for the free gold card and every time you buy 12 drinks, you get one free. It's a great rewards program that allows you to load money onto your card from your phone and pay with your phone at the register with just a simple scan. It's revolutionary.

Well my tech-nerdy budgeteers, that's all I have for you this week. I realize that if you don't have a smart phone this article isn't helpful . . . Maybe you should just take the hint. I kid, I kid! There's nothing wrong with a non-smartphone. It just means you're not as cool as me. If you can deal with that, then so can I.
