Circulars are for suckers. Retailers and shoppers alike are gearing up for what promises to be an exciting shopping season, kicking off with Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. The amount of sales, promotions, discounts and bargains can be overwhelming, but this year, your smartphone may be able to help you find the perfect deal.
Here are some free apps that help wrangle in sales data from all over the web, bringing organization and personalization to your holiday shopping season.
Fat Wallet, a website known for aggregating the best online deals year-round, has released a Black Friday specific app to help shoppers navigate the busiest day of the year. The app allows users to search and sort deals by store, category, brand and price range. There is also an advanced search feature that can filter results to show free shipping, doorbusters, online availability and rebates.
