The RedLaser App Just Saved Me $40


Sorry for the spammy headline, but it's true.

I was in Target yesterday buying my wife the Flip UltraHD camera for her birthday. As I'm standing in the checkout line, I remembered that I had recently purchased the RedLaser App for my iPhone. RedLaser uses the camera on your phone to scan product barcodes and searches to find the best price using Google product search. 

I scanned the box and a price list came up almost instantly. I reviewed it and noticed that Best Buy had the camera on sale for $40 cheaper. I clicked the link for proof and sure enough, it was on sale. I laughed diabolically, returned the camera to electronics department (Lie: I put it on the magazine rack. Sorry.) and headed to Best Buy.

RedLaser cost me $1.99. Easy math. Awesome App.

    That app saved us a LOT of money when shopping for Christmas gifts!

    I wish I had discovered it before Christmas. Nice work. Oh, and thanks for telling me about it, friend. Ha.
