OK~ Can you believe it? Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner! This year will be an exciting one, especially if you have a smartphone. Your smartphone can become your best shopping pal.
It is no secret that Black Friday and Cyber monday often provide the best deals of the year and with USA Today predicting that Cyber Monday will outshine most offerings on Black Friday this year, the lines between the two continue to blur. Shopping in stores during this busy season is a highlight of the year for some, but it can be stressful. Likewise the number of online sites and web-only deals can be enticing, but can also overwhelm. Fortunately, the holiday shopping experience doesn't have to be stressful or overwhelming, thanks to some strategic tips for U.S. Cellular on how your smartphone can become your best shopping pal.
Use your smartphone and make the holiday shopping season less stressful and enjoy the sounds of the season! Think about it, when is the last time you actually listened to the Christmas Carol, Away In a Manger. Chances are you have came upon a group singing or performing in a local mall over the holidays, but due to your time limits you could not stop to listen. When you shop with your smartphone, you can enjoy the sounds of Christmas.
Here are two apps to help you shop smarter this holiday season.
Slickdeals is one app that bargain hunters will want to have at their fingertips this Black Friday.
Millions of users submit, vote and comment on deals across the nation SO the best deals rise to the front of the page. With U.S. Cellular's 4G LTE network, this is a no brainer! This app can be used on both Android and Apple devices and will help you find the lowest prices.
Amazon Mobile App is our family favorite app!
With an iPhone6, your experience will be even sweeter. This app is so easy to use and makes your holiday shopping experience a fantastic one. The Amazon Mobile App works on your smartphones and tablets. In my opinion, this app has transformed how we all shop. I can tell you that our UPS man delivers a lot of Amazon packages to our home.
And as always, if you have a tween or teen in your home, I'd highly suggest that you monitor their online activity this holiday season. U.S. Cellular Better Moments Parent- Child Agreement can protect your family and your bank account on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Slickdeals and the Amazon Mobile App are a couple amazing apps out there to help you enjoy the holiday season this year. Shopping has never been easier and if you use your smartphone wisely, you may even find yourself singing a few Christmas Carols in 2014! So, tell me, what is your favorite shopping app? I'd love to hear about it. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
