OK~ Did you know that according to Mobile Commerce Daily, on Black Friday last year alone, mobile shopping accounted for 16 percent of online sales and that number is expected to exceed 20 percent this year? A recent U.S. Cellular survey showed that 39% of our smart phone customers use their smart phones for shopping. I am part of that 39%, as I use my smart phone a lot when it comes to shopping!
I am not the type of person who enjoys going out and battling the crowds on the day after Thanksgiving, so the Black Friday App is appealing to me. This free app is the ultimate Black Friday survival guide, enabling users to browse "leaked" and verified ads. It also allows users to price compare against the best online prices or find a store's nearby locations with a tap. Using this app saves time and helps determine where to get the lowest price. I can tell you that our family loves Amazon and we are always comparing prices, and a lot of stores will price match with Amazon.
Need a little help with that Christmas shopping for the tech lover in your family? U.S. Cellular has some of the hottest tech gifts this shopping season. The iPhone 5s, the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, and iPhone 5c, the most colorful iPhone yet, is available now!
Enjoy Black Friday, keep your smart phone in hand and enjoy shopping from the coziness of your couch! I appreciate the fact that my smart phone has made shopping all year long, a breeze!
An app that I use a lot is the Amazon Mobile one, as it is very user friendly. You can zip through your shopping from home on your smart phone and tablet, which allows you more time to spend with your family. The holidays bring lots of home cooked meals, school music programs, and Christmas caroling.
When you utilize your smart phone, you can enjoy the things that matter the most to you this holiday season. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
