TGI Black Friday: Powered by TGIblackfriday and DealCatcher, this app lets users search for products, notifies shoppers when new ads are posted and lets users save their favorite deals for later. It also gives users a breakdown of how many deals are at a particular store.
Black Friday App: This aptly named program from DealNews has catalogued the Black Friday ads from just about every major retailer from Ace Hardware to Walmart. Users can search and save ads, see deals by category and even look at a feed of recently posted deals.
Black Friday by BradsDeals: Bradsdeals.com has a Black Friday app that lets users compare prices and look at copies of the fliers retailers have sent out to show off Black Friday deals. Shoppers can also use this app to plan out their shopping trips and set the date, time and location of any planned excursions.
SnapTell: For dedicated showroomers, SnapTell is one of the fastest ways to see if a product in stores can be found at a lower price online. Run by Amazon, SnapTell has users take a quick photo of the item of their choice and then runs it through an image recognition database to see where its advertised online.
SnipSnap: To make things a little more manageable on Black Friday, try SnipSnap for coupon management. Users can take pictures of coupons they want to use to cut down on paper clutter. Shoppers can also search coupons other people have snapped to add to their own digital wallet. The app also ranks stores by the success rate users have had with scanned coupons.
BuyVia: Not that into Black Friday, but love Cyber Monday? Consider BuyVia, a new service that provides price comparisons for consumer technology, including product descriptions written in plain English. Users can manage their BuyVia shopping lists on their phones, tablets and computers and scan barcodes of items they want to track.
