Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to preview a cool new app (available for the iPhone and soon to be out for the Android) that is a bargain hunter’s dream…the Savvy app. It is a fabulous app that is perfect for the holiday shopping season and something you’ll want to have ready at your fingertips today the ultimate shopping day…Black Friday!
It is a new app and is not available for all stores yet but there are a few retailers that you photography fans will want to take note of…..B&H Photo, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Fry’s, and OfficeDepot. And if you are going to shop for more than just camera equipment this holiday season, you need cute clothes too, then you’ll want to check out their full list of supported retailers here.
Here is what the Savvy app can do……..
The Savvy app allows you to scan the receipt of your purchase using your iPhone’s camera or by manually entering the bar code information on the Savvy website. If the item goes on sale, Savvy will notify you so that you can receive a price adjustment (according to the retailer’s policy).
If this were not enough, the app also allows you to keep a Watch List and has a cool Deal Maker feature. I have several camera lenses on my wish list for Christmas this year, so this feature is perfect for me. The Watch List feature lets you keep a list of items you may want to purchase and receive updates on them when a special or deal is available.
The Deal Maker feature allows you to scan the price of an item you are interested in and you can tell Savvy how much you’d be willing to pay. If the price drops to that amount, Savvy will let you know. How cool is that?
