Best Apps to Compare Prices
- December 2, 2014
If you find yourself only using your phone for calls, texts, or social media, it may be time to look at some more impressive apps. There are multiple apps that you can use to actually compare prices of items that you are thinking about spending money. It may take some more effort, but it will be worth it if you can save some money.
The first is ShopSavvy, this app allows you to scan the barcode of a particular item and where you can find it the cheapest. Not only does it compare, but it will actually send you coupons, if there are any, for that item. There are other apps that are similar if this one does not work for you, for example, RedLaser is another app you can use to compare items.
If you are looking to find apps that will save you money on travelling you can download Trivago or Skyscanner. Trivago will compare a vast arrangement of hotels and try to narrow down the cheapest ones that you are looking for. When it comes to flights, Skyscanner will compare multiple airlines and find the best dates to fly for the cheapest flights.
When you are going food shopping, apps can be an effective tool to help compare prices and quality of certain items. The first must-have-app is the Grocery Exchange, which will allow you to see other food buyers post their own comparisons. You can also use an app called Consumr, which not only allow you to compare food but books, toys, and other objects.
If you can find at least a few apps that will potentially save you some money, they may be worth a try. It may be easier just to buy items without looking into where you can buy them cheaper but if you are really starting to struggle with money, try it out for a week and hopefully it will catch on.
