Useful Black Friday Apps for Your Android Phone
Don't Leave Home Without Them!
When preparing for Black Friday madness, there are certain rituals I perform every year; make a list, check it twice, get a good night's sleep the night before, keep a bottle of water and a healthy snack in my car for between-store hunger pains, make sure my tennis shoes are capable of several hours worth of walking and standing, but most importantly -- make sure my shopping apps are in good working order! Here are a few of my favorites:
- Red Laser - It's like your BFF's are standing in competing stores communicating prices to you so that you know where to find the best deal on items you've yet to buy. It can scan either UPC or QR codes. It can even check for food allergies! This one is my personal favorite, year round.
- Key Ring - Do you have a spare key ring just for the purpose of holding those plastic loyalty fobs given out by retailers? This app not only stores them all in one place, but it also syncs between family members. My favorite feature? Creating individual notes for each of my favorite stores. As long as I have my phone, I don't have to worry about losing my hand-written list.
- - See the daily Gold Box deal. Recommend apps you own. Share links to your favorite products. And best of all, do all your online shopping while waiting in line for stores to open at some unearthly hour the day after Thanksgiving. Every time I get a new phone, the Amazon App is the first one I download! Amazon App
There are lots more apps out there that help with both Black Friday shopping, and just everyday shopping, too! Good luck, and here's to great bargains in all your Christmas shopping!
