Portland, OR -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/27/2014 -- NowDiscount is a free, innovative app that gives shoppers the best of both worlds – online prices at local retailers.
Everyone wants to get the best deal, however, much of the time the lowest prices are provided by online merchants. Sometimes lower price may be worth the trade-offs: waiting several days to receive the item, lack of customer support and all the headaches associated with exchanging/refunding an item. However, the best of both worlds would be to have the immediate satisfaction and peace-of-mind buying from a local retailer AND pay the lowest price.
NowDiscount has been developed to do just that. It locates the lowest online price for any item, then finds a local retailer willing to match that price.
Everybody wins-- shoppers get the items they want for the best price, support their local economy and local retailers keep their customers.
No other shopping app – and there are many – provides this capability.
The NowDiscount app is designed to be simple and intuitive to use, including all the information users need to make an informed buying decision. Features include:
- SEARCH FOR PRODUCTS
Search for a product by scanning its barcode (UPC/EAN/QR) or search by name, or by category.
- SEE PRODUCT INFORMATION
Get details of the selected item.
- LOCATE THE LOW PRICE
Find low online prices, specifically those from major online retailers that select retailers in a user’s neighborhood are willing to match.
- FIND LOCAL STORES WILLING TO MATCH ONLINE PRICES
See store closest to the user, willing to match the online price. If the user does not like this store, click to find the next closest store. No other app (i.e. Red Laser, Amazon Price Check, Shop Savvy) does this!
- BUY PRODUCT – LOCAL OR ONLINE – ENJOY SAVINGS
Buy from a nearby local store or, of course, buy from the online retailer identified.
- OTHER FEATURES
Securely create wish list of products users may want to search later. Retrieve search history anytime.
The team behind NowDiscount is comprised of senior leaders in retail, finance and healthcare expertise. The team describes themselves as “a few guys who tried to solve a simple problem. We're not backed by big money, or a tech company, or anyone for that matter. It’s just us. We're not trying to cure world hunger, or be the next Facebook, or strike it rich. We simply solved an everyday problem for ourselves, friends, family and anyone else who'd like to use it. If we didn’t, we feared that nearly everything would be purchased from Wal-Mart or Amazon within a decade…”
The NowDiscount app has already garnered great reviews in its beta test.
