So you’ve finished university and guess what, you’re broke. It certainly was worth it to spend your last cent on that trip with your friends, or blow it on that massive party, but this means you now have to be more careful than ever with your cash.

Today there are dozens of popular mobile apps helping graduates find local discounts, good deals, and even free stuff. It might even help pay for that student-sized phone bill.

Opera Software has prepared a list of the best cost-cutting apps for students to make your life much easier and cheaper.


Getting your books for that new postgraduate course can be a pretty expensive venture − but not anymore. BookBargain is a great app that tracks down and shows the best deals on books and e-books at popular stores (like Amazon) in multiple countries. It compares the prices using an exchange rate and takes into account the shipping costs. With this app you’ll get notifications on price drops so you can buy the book you want at its lowest price. You can also access a selection of free e-books and, most importantly, get a daily e-book deal and benefit from big discounts.
