AirTime Rewards is a handy app that allows you to link up your debit card and collect cashback when you shop.

The list of retailers that qualify is huge, including the likes of Boots, Morrisons, Primark and Wilko. Whether you’re picking something up for dinner or doing your weekly toiletry shop, you’ll be able to watch the pennies stack up.

We’ve already spoken about the cost of living, but something that sent the nation into panic mode was the cost of fuel.

You’ll be no stranger to the fact that sticking £20 in the tank will be lucky to get you anywhere decent at all.

We don’t know about you but before the prices of petrol surged, we’d pull up at any petrol station and not give the price per litre a second thought.

Now things are very different. Waze is a traffic app that will bring fuel prices live on a map. When you open the app, simply tap the ‘Where to’ box.

You’ll then me bet with a petrol icon which you can click on to bring up petrol prices. The app even colour codes the prices, from green to red in order of least expensive to the most.
