Christmas is upon us, and many of you will likely be out doing some last-minute shopping. But this hasty shopping can result in some missed opportunities as far as deals are concerned. And in a bid to just get the gifts at the eleventh hour, a lot of cash is also wasted because you don’t really know if you’re getting the best deal. This is where smartphone apps come in, allowing you to focus more on thinking on what you should be getting rather than if it’s the best deal on the market.
Before you start hunting for deals, it’s better to prioritize and plan what you should be getting in the first place. For that purpose, the Christmas Gift List planner app is a terrific option. It allows you to make a list of gifts, and then check them off once you’ve bought them. It also supports bar-code scanning so you can simply scan a bar code and it will add the product directly to your gift list. You can also track your budget using this app and see if you’re within your spending limits.
Shopping by The Find is one of the most comprehensive shopping apps out there. It puts more than a 500 million products from 500,000 different stores on your fingertips. You can find out the best deals on a product by simply scanning its bar-code, so no more uninformed impulse purchases at the last minute. You can also track your receipts, online purchases and shipping info. The app can also connect to your Facebook, giving you more personalized suggestions on what you should buy next.
For the bargain hunter in all of us, the BuyVia deals app updates your smartphone with deals and coupons you might be interested in. The user can specify which categories they’re interested in, and the app will automatically filter the updates according to the choice. You can also compare prices on a specific product, so you’ll never be caught off guard paying higher than necessary for a product.
The Shopular has the usual deals and coupons features like other shopping apps in the market. But what differentiates it is the fact that when you’re on-location at a store, the app will automatically detect it and update you with active deals for that store. This makes offline shopping a dawdle and a much more simpler experience. The app also uses clever technology to minimize the drain on your battery because of that active location sensor.
RedLaser is an all-in-one solution to anyone’s shopping needs. For a start, it has product code scanning that will instantly tell you about the current deals and availability of the product at major retail stores. Secondly, it will give you details and reviews of the product you’ve just scanned. The app also allows you to make gift lists so you can keep a track of what you have to buy this holiday season. There’s also a small social touch to the app in that it allows you to see what products other RedLaser users are scanning the most.
