Scanning My Way To Savings - 12/09/13
I'm not the least technologically advanced person you know but I can download an ap. That said, my phone screen is not littered with them. Sunday evening while I was out doing a little Christmas shopping I downloaded one of those barcode scanner aps and actually used it to save a litte cash.
My Fox 17 co-anchor Stacy Case has been using one for a long time. She has told me about it and while I knew it would work I had never actually downloaded the ap and figured out how to use it. It was easier than I imagined and as most of you already know, saving money is fun. It was a blast. I didn't save on all my toy purchases but I saved between a dollar and three bucks on everythign I bought. I was shopping at Target this particular trip and and Target is one of the retailers that will match a competitors sale ad as well as an on line price.
I checked out with a little extra pep in my step, assured I would be doing this again. If you don't do this already, I'm recommending it. I didn't have a specific ap in mind. I just went to the ap store, searched for barcode scanner, read a few reviews and downloaded the ap using the store's free wi-fi. I'm sold. Merry Christmas.
