Save Money with Amazon
After I wrote my post about How to Save Money During the Holidays, people have been emailing for more tips. I thought I would pop in to share a good way to save money this weekend.
If you're shopping this weekend, check out the Amazon Price Check App to save some money. This is a great combination of shopping in stores but getting savings online.
The Amazon Price Check App lets you scan barcodes on items, or even take pictures of what you're buying, and it will bring up the price on Amazon.com and allow you to buy it right from your phone. This weekend (December 9th at 9 PM. to December 10th at 11:59 PM) Amazon will also give you a 5% discount for 3 items if you use the App in stores.
Here's what you do:
1. Download the Amazon Price Check App (free!)
2. Use the app at a store. Add the items that you want to buy with the discount to your cart on the app.
3. Purchase what it's in your cart within 24 hours. You can do this from your phone or even from your computer.
4. Save 5%!
Lindsay's Note: I used the app this morning when shopping. I didn't buy from Amazon; I supported my local hardware store, but the App allowed me to compare reviews of the two items in the store very easily... I'm glad I checked, because the reviews revealed that the cheaper model worked better. Thanks for saving me $20 amazon!
