Shopping Apps That Can Point You to Lower Prices

Apps such as RedLaser can make bargain hunting that much easier. You simply open up the app on your phone and scan the bar code. You will get product information and a list of prices from online sites that carry the product and nearby stores. This comes in handy when you are looking to make a major purchase such as technology or appliances or even running shoes. You can feel confident when you have spotted a deal because you are able to quickly compare that deal to other competitors without having to go store to store and searching through a dozen websites. This is an essential tool for the thrifty shopper. You can be sure that you are getting a competitive price and also read reviews of the product to make sure that this is the purchase for you.

I love using this app on my designer hair car products. A Split end mender and leave in conditioner I like retails for $15.99 at my upscale salon. I used RedLaser and was able to order the exact same product for $7.80 (see below). I scanned all of my salon hair car products and even with shipping, I was able to save over $60. Although it may not be convenient to scan cereal boxes, there are tons of items that you can make sure that you are getting the very best deal.
