If you’re getting ready for some shopping during the big post-holiday sales, make the most of your time and money with these three tools. Whether you’re shopping in person or online, they’ll help you shop smarter, not harder.
The ShopSavvy App
The ShopSavvy app allows users to scan the barcode of any product, then compare prices and check availability across thousands of brick and mortar retailers, third-party sellers, and online marketplaces. So if there’s something in particular you’re looking for, you can see where to find the best deal right now, or use the pricing history information for the past 12 months in order to decide if now is the right time to buy. The ShopSavvy app is available for download from the AppStore and GooglePlay.
The free CapitalOne Shopping tool helps you save money while you shop online, and you don’t even need to be a CapitalOne customer to use it. The extension works with all major browsers, running in the background while you shop, searching for every possible coupon and discount for the items you add to your online shopping cart. It then automatically applies the best discount it discovers in order to save you money. What’s not to love?
Help With the Heavy Lifting
If you’re hitting the mall and leaving with a haul, the Mighty Handle makes it easier and more comfortable to carry all those unwieldy and heavy bags. Each comfortable, padded handle can carry multiple bags weighing up to 50 pounds in total. Great for groceries or all the swag you find in the post-holiday sales. The Mighty Handle has a 4.5-star rating with over 2,200 reviews on Amazon.
