You’re already saving a bunch of money by shipping with ReShip.com, why not save more by using your smart phone to find the absolute lowest prices on exactly what you’re looking for? Here is a list of five apps for your Apple or Android device that’ll help you find great bargains online.
The DealNews app takes the pain out of finding the great deals you know are online. The app version of the popular website aggregates deals of all types, both online and off. Even if you frequent the DealNews website, the app offers great extras such as notifications, saved deals, and the ability to create a deal alert. Basically, if you shop online, you should check DealNews regularly for offers and discounts.
Sometimes it can take a community to find the best deals, which is where iSlick comes in. The app offers a convenient, well-organized portal into the popular SlickDeals forums. It supports notifications, adding coupons to Passbook, “watching” items for future deals, and favoriting deals for later.
If you need more daily deals in your life, you will love Deal Drop. The free app aggregates daily deals from multiple sites, including Woot, Tanga, 1SaleADay, Monoprice, and eBay. Deal Drop even allows you to customize which deals the app shows and offers. It also supports push notifications by individual site, for all sites, or for no sites.
Google Shopper helps you save money and iPhone storage space—it is essentially two apps in one. Its primary function is comparison shopping for the best deal on a given product. The app also includes information on local deals from the Google Offers app, thus saving you the need to check both. Since Groupon and Google Shopper usually offer different deals, it’s worth having both apps in your shopping folder.
Online shopping is very convenient, but it can also be frustrating when you’re waiting for a package or need to return something. Luckily, Slice goes a long way towards making those problems history. Once you link your primary email address (using O-Auth for security), Slice collects all of your past and future purchases automatically and provides helpful tools and information.
