Posted: November 28, 2013 by Emily Brown
The holidays are almost here and the number of sales is rapidly sprouting up in preparation for the shopping frenzy. Luckily, there are some free apps ready to find all of the latest deals and discounts while managing your spending.
Suitable for any platform, the apps that follow will sure prove to be invaluable when shopping for the holidays, starting with Black Friday. The 7 apps we have in mind go as follows:
Probably the largest personalized shopping platform in North America, TheFind lets you make your online shopping experience personal integrating with your own preferences on Facebook, as well as it allows you to scan bar codes in stores to check prices and to compare them across the web.
A creation of Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, this app not only syncs all your crucial financial information into one hub, but it allows you to pay with your phone at local businesses across the country.
This app exploits a QR code scanner to turn your smartphone into a virtual wallet, fully replacing your real one that you can even leave at home if you please. Once it is linked to your credit card or debit card and has the information required, LevelUp can process payments while protecting your information at the same time.
Another way that will make you leave your wallet and credit cards behind is by using Google Wallet. It offers a first-rate interface to help users incorporate their credit card information as well as your loyalty cards to access rebates and deals, while saving you time and money. And of course, the Android alternative has a special feature letting customers pay over NFC.
This is the app that lets you track your balance, pay your bills or order ahead at restaurants, as well as it allows you to choose how to pay or send money to a friend for free. All you have to do is download this awesome PayPal app and set up an account, the payment process is fairly straight-forward afterwards.
The Amazon App
Just as the name implies, this app incorporates Amazon payments that makes your shopping experience more pleasant and easier. Once you've explored the store, you just need to access the Amazon App and head towards payments once you find the purchase.
Operating the same way as Google Wallet, this app backups all of your financial information. In case you lost your card, you don't have to worry at all because Lemon will remember it all for you.
