Use your smart phone to save money
The National Retail Federation expects U.S. holiday sales to increase by 2.3% this year; a 1.5% increase over last year. If you plan on increasing your holiday spend this year, why not make sure you’re getting the best deals?
We have been showing our clients the capabilities of Quick Response (QR) technology for use in their online marketing arsenal. The same technology can also be used to make you a smarter shopper. Enter the ShopSavvy app, which is available for the Android and iPhone. There will soon be versions released for Blackberry and Windows 7 phones. While the ShopSavvy app can scan QR codes, its real power is unleashed when you use it to scan product UPC codes while you’re shopping.
Imagine scanning a product UPC with your phone and doing comparison shopping right there in the store! ShopSavvy will pull up prices from online sources as well as other stores in your area. If you find a nearby store that has the same item at a cheaper price, the app makes it extremely easy to call the store to make sure they have it in stock, and will also help you map directions.
It also allows you to set up Price Alerts so you are notified if a product falls below a determined price point. Now that is smart shopping!
