You can also read customer reviews from other users who have purchased the product you’re considering. Save Benjis used to be a completely free app, but will now cost you $0.99 to download. That’s the price of success, I suppose.
Save Benjis is trying to be the go-to source for purchasing any item, however it currently shows the best results for searches in the following categories: appliances, baby supplies, books, cameras, car parts, computers, CDs, DVDs, games, tools, toys and TVs.
In a nutshell, this app gives you all the functionality and range of shopping online but also allows you to take it in a store and make the purchase immediately if it’s the best deal.
Save Benjis has been getting several positive reviews in the press. It was featured on CNBC’s On The Money show and The New York Times tech columnist David Pogue selected it as his favorite money-saving iPhone app in March.
Like many iPhone apps, there are some drawbacks and complaints on the most recent vesion. Negative user reviews on iTunes usually point out that there are too many search results returned for an item, making it difficult to sift for the right one. Also, many users are hoping future upgrades include camera integration that would allow them to simply snap a photo of a barcode or product to search.
When not using a mobile device, you can access the functionality utilized for Save Benjis by visiting FinderCheapers.com on your desktop browser.
In conclusion, Save Benjis is a cool simple app with lots of helpful functionality. Although it’s not perfect (prices only update daily, no barcode photosnap), I would still recommend this as a 99-cent download. You’re sure to save significantly more than on your first purchase alone if you bring it along with you on your next trip to the mall.
