You might not consider yourself a coupon-clipper but let me ask you something – do you hate saving money? Didn’t think so.

Verizon recently invested $400,000 in mobile start-up CardStar, a sign that wireless carriers have taken notice that commerce is going mobile. The CardStar app for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android platforms consolidate your rewards and loyalty cards into one place – your phone. It’s pretty handy and has slimmed down my wallet considerably.

Now there’s an iPad variant of the popular app that’s akin to sorting through the Sunday paper for all the cost-saving circulars. Clip while you search on the iPad and anything that can be redeemed through your phone syncs automagically.
