We try to hold back all year long and stop ourselves from buying the latest item to catch our eye. Luckily for us, once a year, comes National Splurge Day and encourages us to let loose and shop! But what happens when our day is so busy, we can’t find the time to go physically shopping? In this case, we need some quality time with our favorite shopping partner – our mobile phone. To take your mobile splurging to the next level, here are 3 ways to celebrate National Splurge Day in its glorious mobile version.

Cut the coupon

Whether you choose to stay home or hit the nearest shopping center, a coupon app always comes in handy. Pick the app that makes the most sense based on your shopping style and save the best coupons for splurge day. The entire process is super easy and user friendly, and some apps will even go as far as to offer you personalized coupons based on previous purchases or relevant information you’re willing to share. This is a great way be reminded of the products you need to buy, as well as those you absolutely don’t need but really want.

Amazon Goldbox

While splurging from your phone, go ahead and look at the Amazon Gold Box daily deals.  Here you will find rotating deals daily on every category of item you could want for your household.   You can even use Amazon coupon and savings sites and/or extensions like Honey, DealGoGo and many more.

Spend to win

It might be out of the box to suggest that on a day dedicated to spending, you download a free slots app, but the mobile casino apps you’ll find in the app stores are a great way to splurge on something fun and entertaining without feeling the least bit guilty afterwards. You’ll win amazing prizes, play tournaments against other players, and feel like a high roller on the casino floor without ever leaving your apartment. Apps like 88 Fortunes, for example, offer special promotions that will double and even triple your coins on every purchase or win.

Take 2

Feel like splurging but don’t want to practice irresponsible consumption? Whether it’s your bank account or the planet you’re concerned about, 2nd hand shopping will help you clear your conscious and fill your closet space. Choose second-hand shopping apps that make sense considering your needs and location and who knows? Maybe exchanging clothes with someone who has similar taste will introduce you to a new friend to shop with along the way.

Thanks to mobile shopping, there’s no need to go outside to the heat of summer, fight traffic on our way to and from the mall or meet judgmental faces when we walk around carrying a dozen shopping bags. Smartphone shopping makes every purchase smart, and when we’re comfortable seating on our couch, there’s no chance we’ll shop ‘till we drop. Have fun!
