Users can also go directly to some participating retailer websites to make purchases.

Red Laser

Slice

Slice is primarily designed as a way to track items you have already purchased. It allows you to track packages and keep digital copied of your receipts. However, there is also a feature that notifies you when one of your purchases drops in price. This is extremely valuable as many retailers will allow you to get back the difference in price, saving you money.

It will then provide you with reviews, consumer ratings and pricing details that you can use while shopping or review later to help in the decision making process.

ShopKick

This app works like a reward program that you can use when you are out shopping. By shopping at a listed store, users will earn “kickbucks” that can be redeemed for gift cards. Shoppers don’t even have to make a purchase to earn rewards with ShopKick. They can also get reward points for simply browsing certain products. It can also be linked to a credit card to earn even more points.

Amazon Mobile

Shoppers scan a product, choose a retailer, review their order and use a slider to quickly make a purchase. Once an item has been scanned, the app will also alert users to coupons, rebates and special sales.

Sale Price

If you’ve ever wondered just how much money you are saving, Sale Price is a simple calculator to show just what percentage of discount you are actually getting. It displays results as both a percentage and dollar amount, and will even figure in the sales tax for you.

Some will even allow shoppers to scan a barcode, purchase some items and have them shipped anywhere in the U.S. for free. Armed with one or all of these apps, you will be ready to score big discounts and save a lot of money this holiday season.
