The holidays are almost here, as well as the busiest shopping days of the year. Retail Digital has hunted the app market to bring you five of the best free apps that are guaranteed to help save you money this holiday season.
There are a lot of apps that help you find deals online but navigating checkout screens to purchase something is a nightmare on smartphones. TapBuy enables purchases in ten seconds, by entering billing and shipping information as well as coupon and deal codes automatically.
This app turns shopping into a social shopping game by awarding points for giving friends and family recommendations on comments on products. Users scan the barcode of any cool product they see in stores, compare prices with online stores and pass on the details to others users.
This will help shoppers to eliminate the hassle of carrying and finding loyalty, rewards as well as club membership cards. Instead of stuffing their wallet full of these cards, they can keep them all stored digitally on their phone, where they can access them with a single touch from the CardStar home screen.
This app will organise consumers for the most hectic shopping day of the year. The Black Friday Survival Guide brings the latest news, the biggest sales and the best deals to phones. It also allows users to search for deals by store or category as well as create shopping lists.
Our final app helps shoppers prepare for Black Friday before the ads hit the newspapers. The app lets users see Black Friday ads early for major retail stores, compare prices, create a shopping list and email it.
