It’s back-to-school season, and whether or not you are going back to school or you have little humans who are attending school — back – to – school specials are filtering the TV left and right. I mean c’mon.. Target and their recorder/xylophone version of Salt n’ Peppa’s “Push it” = Amazingness.
Anyway, I’ve been using the app “Retail me not” for awhile and I love it. It’s very handy if you’re the non-coupon clipper type like myself. Any time you are near a mall, or store, you just open up retail me not and it will find the specials going on in the store (or extra coupons) and online. For example, I was in “The Body Shop” just wandering around and looking at nice smelly things and Retail me Not told me that I could get a free membership to their “Love your Body rewards” ($10.00) plus $5.00 my purchase of $15 or more. I tried it out and it worked. It wasn’t a special that the store actually advertised and I wouldn’t have known about it if not for this app.
There are a ton of stores on this app and you can get everything from hardware (Home Depot) to food (think Auntie Ann’s pretzels) just buy using this app. Best of all, it’s free on iTunes. The other cool part about it is that anytime you’re near a mall, Retail Me Not will send you alerts for some of the most popular deals going on inside the store.
What are some of your back – to -school apps?
