In today’s piece we will look at a trio of fantastic money saving applications for you to use while out and about in Philly. They are Coupon, Bar Code Scanner, and CNET Scan. Now like I said before since I am not relevant enough in the tech world I don’t own an iPhone I have a Droid Eris and this is my main device for looking at Apps. So let’s sink our teeth into these money savers and show you how to save some scratch.
My sister Kelly has a website where she talks about coupons or coopins, as a few people like to say. Not only does my sister share coopins with her fanbase she also runs classes on how to search for coopins and clip them out, sort them, and just sooo much more. I don’t have that kind of time so I let technology do the work for me.
With the Application Coupon it lists a whole slew of coupons you can sign up for via email. Coupon shows you deals close to you and then you can select to see all the coopins available on the Application. Some of the coopins you will see don’t really apply to you however it is still there available for you to look at or even pass it along to your friends. It really comes in handy when you are looking for some good deals and yes there are a lot of good deals from Coupons. A definite must check it out if you can.
Bar Code Scanner
Next up will be Bar Code Scanner. Now this handy app scans the bar code on the back of products and gives you are run down of said product with Product Search. With Web Search it will search the web for your barcode and give you a price rundown. Then you have Google Shopper which tells you the item you just scanned then you can do a search for the product in your local area to go find said object. So when you need a helpful shopping buddy the Bar Code Scanner does the trick. Easy to use and with so many different uses this is the one I use most often when comparison shopping.
CNET Scan and Shop
CNET Scan and Shop will be our last little Application to check out. You get a few different options you can Search for a product, make a wish list, notified when a certain item you are looking for drops in price then you have history and settings rounding out the intial startup of the Application. I use this one primarily for tech gadget shopping or while at Best Buy and poking around. You scan the barcode or you can even manually enter in the item you are looking for.
I typed in Dell Netbook just to run a simple search. It returned Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook. Then you can choose to see CNET’s editors review of the product or even user reviews of the product. Then you can run a search locally for the product in your area. You can even get an email alert if CNET sees the product hit a certain price you are looking to spend. I mean this thing turns itself into your own personal shopping assistant.
So all in all with these three applications at your disposal you are now arming yourself with the knowledge that you can save a buck or two if you really look hard enough. But if you still feel the need to clip and save then by all means do that. Hell it is working for my sister who is probably ankle deep in coupons on her table right next to her scrap booking supplies. So while you are out and about in Philadelphia you can use these applications while you are shopping and hopefully they all come in handy.
