The SnipSnap app allows anyone to convert a printed coupon into a digital, mobile format, which they can easily search and retrieve on their smartphone. All a user needs to do is snap a picture of the offer (be it from an FSI, direct-mail piece, newspaper, or otherwise) and the app works its magic to scan all of the printed text and images. Once scanned, a user can not only redeem, but also get expiration-date notifications and in-store reminders.

Buy at the Right Time

Consumers already know that prices rise and fall based on seasonal discounts, manufacturers making room for new products or stores trying to energize sluggish sales. But what if you’re hunting around for a major purchase? You can save hundreds of dollars if you time your purchases just right, and we’re not talking about just stocking up on chocolate after Valentine’s Day or gift wrap after Christmas.
