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.
