We all like to save money and these apps can help. They’ll help you save on cars, monthly bills and even prescription drugs.

Buying a used car? You’ve probably heard to check the Carfax. But a new competitor report from CarMD might offer more valuable information.

CarMD’s health and history report analyzes a used vehicle’s vin for vital information, including market value, five-year cost of ownership and more. But the best feature — the predictive failure listing — tells you about the things that might go wrong with the car and how much it will cost to repair them.
Five reports are 25 dollars.

Netflix, Amazon, Spotify… Before you know it, you’ve signed up for a bunch of monthly subscriptions. Truebill keeps track of them all and helps you cancel the ones you no longer need or use.

Log in with your credit cards and the service automatically keeps track of every subscription payment. It will even add them up for what could be an eye popping total.

Truebill even helps you cancel subscriptions with just a click, no waiting on hold. The service is free.

Prescription drug prices can be a surprise at the register, but not with a new service called Blink Health.

You pre-pay your prescription online, then just bring the voucher to the drugstore to redeem it.
Forty percent of the generic drugs on blink health cost less than $10, and there are no membership fees.

Blink health vouchers work at nearly all of the major pharmacy chains, and if you don’t use one, you can even get a refund.
