Say what, Alex? It’s true. Your iPhone is a consumer weapon. It’s retailer against customer. Just add an app to your iPhone and never be gouged by merchants who don’t want you to shop and compare prices.
How Much Is That Doggy?
There’s not much you can buy from a store these days that doesn’t have a barcode or QR code. Grab the goods and head to the checkout line and the clerk scans the price.
What’s wrong with that? Sometimes the price on the product does not match the price on the barcode or QR code.
And most of the time discrepancies are not in your favor.
Add the free RedLaser app to your iPhone and use it to scan products while you’re in the store, and compare prices elsewhere online.
Whoa. Think of the power that now rests in the palm of your hand. You’re no longer obligated to take the merchant’s word for it that they have the lowest prices. Proof is in your hands.
Use your iPhone’s camera with RedLaser to scan the barcode or QR code of the product you want to compare with prices at other stores.
Then, RedLaser will search online for matching products and display their prices.
If you want, you can order products online from your iPhone, or have them made available for pickup at some merchants.
RedLaser displays product descriptions, customer reviews, and much more. It’s a good way to create shopping and gift lists you can share with friends and family.
As good as this app is, and I use it plenty to keep our household of kids and pets in their daily supplies, it’s also a good way to bargain for lower prices because the proof of a lower price elsewhere is in your hand.
