Five Essential Black Friday Smartphone Apps

Posted on 11/08/2013

Besides your credit card and shopping list there are a few other things you should put in your Black Friday arsenal. These five Smartphone apps will ensure you're getting the best deal on the best product possible.

Black Friday Companion
Ready for the Black Friday of a lifetime? The Black Friday Companion app is $1.99 and gives you tools to plan out your shopping extravaganza so you can compile deals, create a shopping list and even plan your driving route. You can also check off the deals you've scored as you make your purchases.

Get smarter about your Black Friday purchases with the help of Smoopa, a free price comparison app. Scan an item to get real-time price updates from online and brick-and-mortar stores. Create an account to contribute price scans and you could also earn rewards. When you find an in-store price that's better than the one online you may receive a special offer. When you purchase the item in the store you could be eligible to get money back which you can cash out via PayPal or gift cards to stores like Amazon or Walmart.

Realize it or not there is a lot of power packed in your little wallet. What we spend our money on has the ability to make the world a better place. We all want to buy gifts at the best possible price, but we don't need to compromise our values to get a good deal. With the free GoodGuide mobile app you can shop your values by purchasing healthy, green and ethical products. Scan a barcode to instantly receive health, environmental and social performance ratings for more than 120,000 food, personal care and household products.

If you've decided to do your Black Friday shopping online you'll definitely want to download the free Slice app. It stores e-receipts from stuff you buy, tracking your package from shipment to delivery. Then if the price on the item you bought drops, Slice will alert you if you're eligible for a price adjustment. You'll also be notified if there is a safety recall for a product you purchased.

Google Wallet
Don't waste time fumbling for rewards cards, gift cards or credit cards on Black Friday. Instead load everything into your Google Wallet ahead of time to make the Black Friday checkout experience easier. Because as any diehard Black Friday shopper knows, minutes count when you're trying to take home the best deals of the day.
