A new app gives serious bargain-hunting power to those with no time to shop around and clip coupons. Watch ESPN on the go with a little help from the folks at Comcast. Stream free music via your iPad with Spotify’s awesome new app. And get your game on for less with this great deal from Microsoft.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could bargain shop for everyday products and find the best prices with little-to-no effort on your part? Now you can with a great new app called NetPlenish. Available for iPhone and Android, NetPlenish lets you scan the barcodes on your frequently-purchased household items, from paper towel to laundry detergent. These scanned items will be filed into your personal NetPlenish list. When you’re ready to replenish your home stock, you can simply add the item to your cart.
Then NetPlenish will use its ShopGenius tool to find the best price around. Merchants compete to give you the lowest price, and once your order has been fulfilled, NetPlenish will send everything to your doorstep in three to five business days. Not only is it convenient, it saves you money – no more going to the store and impulse-buying items that weren’t on your list.
Right now, NetPlenish is offering a giveaway for shoppers to replenish their homes, a prize valued at $2999. Visit NetPlenish, sign up and enter for your chance to win.
