I’ve discovered an app that is one of the best apps to make my weekly shopping experience simpler, so much simpler.
I do most of my shopping at a select few brick and mortar stores. As a mom of 5, I can’t be everywhere, especially when I’ve got the crew along. With a family of 7, Sam’s Club is pretty much a weekly thing. We’ve been club members since 2008 and became Plus Members a couple years ago.
A couple months ago, the cashier handed me a small slip of paper along with my receipt. I barely looked at it, but noticed it said something regarding a scanning app. A week later as I was walking through the doors, greeted by our favorite employee Jim, I remembered that slip of paper and quickly downloaded the app to my phone.
I grabbed my first item to try after reading through the directions (extremely simple). I was hooked.
It’s awesome to be able to track your spending as you walk through the store scanning your items even though some of the UPC/barcodes need to be stretched out if there on bags. In the past month (4 trips), I’ve spent about $170 each trip. Here’s a screenshot:
Previously I would not have been surprised at the register with a bill over $200. Yes, it’s happened. More than once. Before I had the app on my phone, things would get thrown in my cart and I’d get to the register and end up with a bill of $220 or more!
The best, absolute best thing about the app is the fact that you get to skip the register and the lines! It’s as simple as pressing a “Pay Now” button. Your first transaction takes the most effort, during which you put in your credit or debit card information.
