You know how much I love saving money when I am shopping, right? I have always been a bargain hunter, long before we became a one-income household. Thanks to the internet, smart phones and ever-improving technology, it has become a lot easier for me to save money, no matter what I am shopping for! One of my go-to shopping apps is RedLaser!

RedLaser is a free app that you can download for your smart phone, iPhone, Android and Windows phones, that allows you to scan items you find at the store. I love this app because I like to have a lot of information about a product before I make a purchase – especially price comparisons for other stores!

Already downloaded by over 20 million users, RedLaser is like a secret weapon for savvy shoppers. You just scan the barcode of whatever item you are considering buying, and RedLaser shows you two options – online and local – along with product details and reviews.

Now, that information is awesome for two reasons: one, I always look for reviews before buying new products and two, RedLaser shows you the price of the item at the different competitors.

Yesterday I needed to buy a product called Nature’s Miracle, so I scanned the UPC and toggled over to the local section.

While I would have never guessed to try looking for it at Linens ‘N Things, they carried it and it was a few bucks less than at PETCO! I ended up buying it at PETCO because as you can see, the other store was over 19 miles away.

Some of my favorite features of RedLaser:

  • You can scan and search for products using the bar code scanner just as though you were taking a photo
  • Compare prices online and at local retailers, so you know where the best deal is
  • Read reviews and ratings for the products in question
  • Buy directly from your phone using PayPal mobile express checkout and you can pick up your item in a nearby store.
  • Create shopping lists that you can share them via email, SMS, Twitter and of course, Facebook
  • You can even create wish lists and share them for birthdays, baby showers and the holiday season
  • Scan a food item to see ingredient information – even allergen information

You can watch this video to see how the RedLaser app works. It’s a great example of how you can use RedLaser to find a last-minute gift. I have a feeling that option will come in handy during the holiday shopping season for many people…like my dad!

You can download the RedLaser app here, or visit them on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about it and how to use its many awesome features!
