The life of a bachelor is a financial struggle and no discount can be missed. These apps all offer varied discounts from time to time and have a permenant partnership with PVR, Dominos, etc to get you the best deals (from 10% to 30% off each time!). Also keeping some balance in these wallets is a good idea because I cannot tell you how many times they came in handy at crunch situations involving mobile recharge!
