High-tech shopping tips

November 05, 2011

High-tech shopping tips:

Want to compare prices? Download a price comparison app to your smartphone or tablet computer to scan bar codes and check prices at local and online merchants. Many apps, such as ShopSavvy, RedLaser and TheFind, are free.

Looking for coupon deals? Before buying anything, do a quick search on a coupon app or site to see if that retailer is offering discounts. Retailmenot.com, Yowza, Coupon Sherpa and MobiQpons are just a few.

Worried about parking? Get a parking guide to help you navigate the jammed mall lots, such as the Parking in Motion app or a similar one called Parker.

Lost at the mall? Many malls, discounters and some department stores such as J.C. Penney and Macy's have their own apps to locate items, check what's in stock or spot deals.
