Savvy Tip: Use Your Smartphone When You're Shopping

If you're doing that last-minute dash for gifts, sometimes the holding off on your purchases shopping tactic is not going to be applicable to your situation. Don't give yourself a hard time if you're a late shopper; a lot of people are as well. Don't worry, there are ways to stay savvy while doing some procrastinating shopping. For example, you can take advantage of free shipping day today, and another tip is to use your smartphone as a comparison shopping tool when you're out in the stores. This way, you'll be less swayed by tempting "Get it for 70 percent off!" types of signs.

In fact, retailers are really nervous about customers using smartphones to comparison shop, because they might lose market share due to this burgeoning consumer trick, according to The Wall Street Journal. You don't even have to do it manually; there are shopping apps out there that will do the work for you. Such apps include TheFind, RedLaser, Save Benjis, and Amazon Mobile.
