Black Friday Smartphone Apps & U.S. Cellular Offers iPhone 5c + 5s

Disclosure: I’m a compensated member of U.S. Cellular’s Better Moments Blogger Brigade, but all opinions are my own. I’m pleased to share news and and product information with you as part of my ongoing relationship with U.S. Cellular. 

If you’re like me, you like to find a good deal on the things you buy most and especially when shopping for the holidays. Now that my kids are older their lists have gotten shorter, but each item costs more than when they were little. Oh how I miss the days of getting away with buying them building blocks and wooden puzzles for their favorite December holiday. I have to really pay attention to sales and keep an eye on deals because now the things they want most either plug into the way or need to be inserted into a video game system. A really great way to take advantage of huge sales and savings during the holiday season is by shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Did you know…….

  • According to Mobile Commerce Daily, on Black Friday last year alone, mobile shopping accounted for 16 percent of online sales and that number is expected to exceed 20 percent this year, and a recent U.S. Cellular survey showed that 39 percent of our smartphone customers use their smartphones for shopping.
  • Whether you like to shop from your couch or relish the chaos of visiting all of the stores during busy shopping times, smartphones can assist in ensuring you are efficient in your purchases, leaving more time enjoy the rest of the season’s offerings.

U.S. Cellular wants to help you make the most of your shopping dollars this year, so they even came up with a few ideas to turn your smartphone into your shopping BFF. Here are some tips to survive this holiday season by using your smartphone to save money and shop ’til you drop without ever breaking a sweat!

Best Black Friday Smartphone Apps

In order to find the best deals around, the Black Friday App is one app to have at your fingertips. This free app is the ultimate Black Friday survival guide, enabling users to browse “leaked” and verified ads. It also allows users to price compare against the best online prices or find a store’s nearby locations with a tap. Using this app saves time and helps determine where to get the lowest price.

Let your smartphone also make the checkout process hassle free with CardStar. Get rid of the store rewards cards you may have dangling from your keychain or filling up your wallet by loading them into this app and you’ll never lose time or savings searching for the card you need again. After the cards are stored, you can access them right from your phone and the cashier will simply use the barcode stored on the device.

With Amazon Mobile, users are able to zip through their shopping from home on their smartphones and tablets and spend more time with family and friends.

Just in case you need a little help with finding the perfect gift for the gadget-loving person on your list, U.S. Cellular is pleased to offer the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c and the iPad Air this holiday season! When you purchase the iPad Air from U.S. Cellular, not only do you have several data plan options, but as a customer you’ll also be able to connect to their fast 4G LTE network with speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G!

I have to admit, I’ve never been a Black Friday shopper and I only made a few purchases on Cyber Monday, but I’m definitely curious to see how the apps I described above might help me get a little more organized this holiday season because trying to keep track of all the emails I get every single day is just not working.

How about you? Do you use any smartphone apps to keep track of holiday deals?
