Save this season--on your phone
To grandmother’s house we go…but before the tryptophan kicks in, we need to gear up for those notorious shopping days: Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Luckily, we’ve found three apps that take at least some of the stress (and needless spending) out of holiday shopping.
Slice Price Drop Alert This genius money-saving app for iPhone and Android has just introduced a new holiday-friendly feature. The new alert allows you to buy items whenever you want at any store (rather than waiting for a sale) and tells you if and when the item’s price is reduced. If it is, Slice guides you through a quick and easy refund.
Black Friday Smart Aisles App For iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, this app searches major stores for Black Friday offers, including deals only redeemable in-store. You can list stores you intend to visit to view their offers--or enter specific items to see which store will give you the best price.
TheFind App Scan a barcode in-store on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and search other shops selling the same item to ensure that you’re getting the lowest price. If you’re not, the app provides a map to the store with the best deal.
