Good news for those with Android or iPhones and who like to shop at Amazon! On Saturday, December 10, people who have the Amazon Price Check app on their phones can get 5% off of their Amazon purchases when they use the app to add items to their cart.
Amazon Price Check is an app that checks the price of an item at Amazon. The app comes in handy when you’re at a store and wondering if you can get an item cheaper at Amazon. (Some stores, such as Best Buy, may match Amazon’s lower price to get you to buy the product at their store.)
To use the app, you search for an item by scanning the bar code, taking a picture of the item, typing keywords into the search box, or speaking the name of the item.
You don’t have to fight the crowds at the stores on Saturday to take advantage of this 5% discount. Just search for the item you want to buy on the app from your phone. When the app displays the item, put it in your cart. You must complete the purchase within 24 hours to have the discount apply.
There are some restrictions on this deal. There is a limit of a $5 discount per item and you can use this discount three times up to $15 in total. Not all items are included, just certain products in electronics, toys, DVD’s, sports and music.
The deal begins at 9:00 pm PST on Friday, December 9 and continues until 11:59 pm PST on Saturday December 10.
You need to have location services enabled on your phone (see, Apps: To Push or Not to Push). For more information about the 5% discount on Saturday, check Amazon’s website.
You can get the app for free here:
