My friends call me the deal person! I am always looking for the latest deals, warehouse sales and bargains! I find it is unfair to pay full price for an item when you know it will be on sale someday! All my clothes are bought on sale. No exception for that! That’s why I read my weekly flyers religiously trying to spot the latest deals! But as much as I love deals, I don’t really enjoy flipping through flyers. They clutter my house and sometimes my husband gets rid of them before I get the chance to take a peek!
So when I found this ShopWise shopping app from the Yellow Pages Group, I was over the moon! I will never miss a deal again! It is a free app! You can download it on your phone or iPad. I downloaded it on my iPhone! As soon as you download it, you are asked to choose your city.
Once done, you get a slideshow of featured deals that you can scroll through! I LOVE that feature because you are getting a quick sense of the deals around you with a flick of the thumb!
The first deal that caught my eye was the 40% off Point Zero casual fashions at Sears. I am not very creative with my husband’s holiday gift, I always buy nice shirts! You click on that deal to get more information: where you can buy it, view it online and even call to check availability!
Now THAT is very helpful and a huge time saver. You don’t want to rush to a store and find out that the item is out of stock. Do you? You can even share that deal on social media or even via text message. This is another great feature! Sometimes I find an interesting deal for a friend. I can share it with her!
You can add the deal to your favorites, thumbs it up or thumbs it down! It is great because if you do not have the time to take a close look at the deal, you can save it and come back later by checking your favorites. (Instead of clipping your printed flyer, you add the deal to your favorites) This time you don’t have to search in your purse for that flyer, just scroll your app! It is just wonderful!
You click a second time on the deal (View Deal Online) and you are redirected to the store flyer! Now the fun begins! Once on the flyer, click on the deal that interests you and you are redirected to purchase your item! In few clicks, I just saved $27.50 and scored a nice sweater for my husband!
You can also use the FIND option where you can search deals by categories. Now since I was in the mood for shopping, I scrolled the baby and kids category and saved $10 on a Tiny love Fruity Pals Ozzie Orange! This will be a nice gift for my neighbor who has a 3 month old!
Then I stumbled on this Thomas and Friends Train Table with Playboard while I was browsing the Toys and games category. I scored it for $249.95 compared to $349.95!
Total savings: $27.50+$10+$100= $137.50. Just enough to buy a spa treatment for me!
Other features of the Shopwise shopping app!
You can do a search by nearby! It shows also the restaurants in the area! This is a nice feature if you are in a specific area and you want deals only on that area. There is a MyStuff section where you can find all your favorites as well as set up deal alerts. This is a huge option for me!
Now do I love this app? I am hooked to it! It is time saver and money saver! Make sure to check it out.
