Must Have Apps for Holiday Shopping

must have apps for holiday shopping

It’s December and that can only mean one thing. The holiday shopping countdown is on! If you’re looking for ways to help ease the burden of holiday shopping, whether it’s looking for deals, navigating the malls or keeping track of your gift list, use your handy smart device and download these shopping related apps.

Find the Latest Deals

I love apps that focus on the Canadian marketplace that helps you find the latest and best deals in town. RedFlagDeals offers coupons and freebies while ShopWise Canada lets you search for a specific product, store or brand near you.

Scan Your Code

Become a savvy shopper and find the lowest price on products in seconds. Simply scan the product barcode and let the app do all the work. Apps look for prices both online and locally.

Manage Your List

No matter what the occasion, organize and manage your gift list year round from your smart phone. Look for features including budget tracking, Facebook and Contact imports, individual profiles, reminders and more. It’s like having your very own shopping concierge!

Navigate the Mall

Wouldn’t it be great to have an interactive map of shopping malls from around the world in the palm of your hand? Or to know what the store promotions are in the mall ahead of time? How about an app that can give you turn by turn directions to restrooms, restaurants and stores without using GPS or Wi-Fi? There’s an app for that and it’s called FastMall.
