Different stores means different prices. But who has time to go from store to store wasting time, money, and gas to compare prices. Price matching apps are the best thing since sliced bread and direct deposit. Basically, you can download a few apps that do all the dirty work for you. Several popular stores price match with others depending on their store policy, if you tell them that they don’t have the cheapest price... which saves you a trip!
Here are some popular price matching app and stores:
Shop at Walmart. Scan your receipt once you’ve made your purchase. The app will catch if the item is cheaper elsewhere, and reimburse you the difference through the app. Then, you can use that money at Walmart, essentially as a store credit.
Did you know the Amazon app allows you to scan a barcode while you’re in the store to see if the item is offered for a cheaper price on Amazon?
The cool thing about this app is that you can tell it what you’re looking for and it will let you know when the item is discounted. It’s like your own personal price stalker.
This app is for the techies. It compares prices at local and national stores. You can also set it to alert you when items come in or go on sale. Plus, if you’re looking to give a tech gift and don’t know anything about it, BuyVia puts it in simple terms.
