PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You’ve got a shopping list, your wallet is at the ready — but don’t forget your smartphone this Black Friday — you could be missing out on deals.
Instead of paging through piles of circulars, try using the Black Friday Deal Finder app.
“They’re now in one resource, all digital,” says FatWallet’s Brent Shelton. “You can view page-by-page, item-by-item.”
Shelton says their app includes 20,000 bargains from those retailers’ flyers, and online ads.
“They also include coupons,” he says, “free shipping offers, mail-in rebates.”
It’s free, but is for iPhone and iPad only. Android and Apple users also can try TGI Black Friday, which displays deals and lets you show off your big gets on Facebook.
While shopping, the apps Shopular and Coupon Sherpa can guide you to further savings, while The Find scans barcodes and tells you whether you might locate that item cheaper somewhere else.
And don’t forget retailers’ apps: Walmart, for one, says it’s giving special access to those with the store’s app on their device.
