There are lots of ways for business owners to save money. These apps can save you money, improve your online security, increase your sales, and make you look like the coolest kid on the block again.
You’ll need the Amazon app to try to make sure you’re not paying more than you have to for gifts for your secretary, administrative assistant, and other key employees. While you’re shopping in a store, you can scan the barcodes of items you want to buy and see how much they cost on Amazon. This is handy because many stores, including Best Buy, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart, will match prices if an item sold and shipped by Amazon is cheaper. You’ll need to show the cashier the app with the price of the item. And make sure to check each store’s price-matching rules, which are posted online.

CARTWHEEL BY TARGET
If you plan to spend your money at Target, download this separate coupon app. You can browse through the hundreds of coupons or use the app to scan the barcode of every item you throw in your cart. When you do that, Cartwheel will tell if you if there’s a coupon you can use or suggest a similar product that does have a deal. When you get to the register to pay, just show the app; there’s a barcode the cashier will scan to apply the discounts. Recent deals include 25 percent off the latest “Call of Duty” video game and 30 percent off a set of wireless headphones.
If you like to flip through promotional flyers to compare prices, try Flipp. The app collects paper flyers for stores near you and makes them digital. You can quickly scroll through them or digitally “clip” coupons that are saved in another part of the app. And the design of the app makes it easy to quickly see the latest flyers from stores you frequent the most. This app is a keeper beyond the holidays because it pulls flyers from a wide range of shops, including local grocery stores, pharmacies, and large department stores.
If you’re trying to save money shopping online, be sure that the website you’re on uses 4x Buyer Protection. Among other benefits, this service will ensure that your shipment is secure. Also, its price will match other companies that offer the same or similar products. You should already be offering 4x Buyer protection on your e-commerce website if you aren’t already offering it. Just like you, your customers want to know that their purchases will arrive on time. They also want to know that they’re getting the best price possible.
