The Best Shopping Apps To Help You Save This Holiday Season

According to one out of every three US consumers will be downloading some type of shopping app this year. Here are the Grappler’s three must-have app suggestions to maximize your time & money this holiday season.

1. Shop-kick: It’s inevitable for all of us, that 4 hour long shopping trip we don’t want to be on but are forced into. How about getting rewarded just for walking into the store! Shop-kick awards points or “kicks” just for showing up to places like Target, Macy’s or Best Buy. You can use your “kicks” for rewards like Starbucks coffee, Nike Sneakers or even designer accessories. Making purchases does earn you more kicks but there are no applications and no purchase needed. Just racking up rewards for the trip your significant other, mom or grandma has you on anyway.

2. Red Laser: Consider this your all purpose, personal shopping assistant. Just scanning bar codes to compare prices is so 2011. This tricked-out app saves you time and money by not only letting you compare prices by scanning bar codes, it also tracks deals and discounts, compares on-line & local prices, creates wish lists, stores loyalty cards and even suggests products and deals based on your history. Don’t fight the crowds, outsmart the technology geezers still rocking their aol email addresses.

3. Return Guru: Have you ever been frustrated by a great coupon being expired? Or maybe a receipt that you lost? Or maybe a return the store won’t allow because it’s past the date of their lovely “return policy”? Return Guru let’s shoppers take pictures of their receipts and organize the chaos we all encounter during holiday shopping. Get reminders before coupon expiration dates and manage the varying store return policies to make sure you’re not stuck with Uncle John’s size XL sweater now that holiday fun has backed him into an XXL.
