Do you use your iPhone or Android phone to look up product information while you are in stores?

App called "shop savvy". U scan the bar code and it will give u the prices at other local stores. It makes a big difference on your everyday purchases. When your tide laundry detergent costs $14 at target and $6 at Walmart then ima go get a beer with the $ I saved

My invisible iPhone or non-existent android, you mean? That's a lame poll.

All of the time. I was thinking about that comment below about how it's rude because you're in that retailer store. I do not agree. I see it as a useful tool for consumers to keep retailers competitive. Especially here in Alaska where things tend to cost a little more.

I used to, but it took too long

this jas saved me money several times- a lot of stores accept internet prices from reputable websites for price matching.

Ipod. Need wifi. Do my homework before i leave for the store. Besides with 4 bad ass kids, i cant concentrate in a store to price check

don't have an iPhone or Android, just iPod touch and iPad. plus I'm home bound since 2010—except for being taken to hospitals/doctors. But sometimes I get to wait in the car during a shopping stop, heheh!

I just have an iPod, so no, since I don't often have wifi access when shopping in stores.

While at Walmart looking at cribs I came across an amazing deal so I looked it up it had amazing reviews so I ditched the more exspensive crib and got the deal I couldn't be happier an I wouldnt have bought it otherwise. The crib is on baby #2 still in great shape

Looking up a product is more than just doing a price check. Consumer information gives you real data on what to expect from using a product in the real world. Like none of those "as seen on TV" products are going to have a sign right next to them saying "will sit in your closet for years!"

02/12/12 9:36 pm

That's the closest I've ever been to 1st!

It makes me feel like Shiz of I price scan in a store. Pretty sad when u think about looking at something in store and not supporting them. But yes I've done that once in a while.

At home, of course. But when people do that in the store they look very retarted because they're looking up the product online when it's right in front of their faces.

02/12/12 9:18 pm

Not for info but to see if another store has the product cheaper.
