FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Red Laser Shopping Ap

I downloaded this AP from Google play for free.  It allows you to scan bar codes when you are shopping at a brick and mortar store and compare the price to on-line resellers.   It doesn’t provide an all encompassing list of folks selling the same product.  For example I scanned four test bar codes and it did not list Amazon once as selling the products even though I bought all four products from Amazon.   Curious.

Regardless of possible bias, the AP gives you a good ball park figure allowing you to compare prices.   Home Depot, as an example, will match the price of an item if you show them the same item at a better price.   I did this just recently and showed them a better price by $3.00 on an item on sale at Lowes.   They matched the price.   So as much as retailers may dislike this AP it certainly deserves to be mentioned here at Money Saving Tech Tips. 

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
