Scanning My Way To Savings - 12/09/13

  I'm not the least technologically advanced person you know but I can download an ap.  That said, my phone screen is not littered with them.  Sunday evening while I was out doing a little Christmas shopping I downloaded one of those barcode scanner aps and actually used it to save a litte cash.

  My Fox 17 co-anchor Stacy Case has been using one for a long time.  She has told me about it and while I knew it would work I had never actually downloaded the ap and figured out how to use it.  It was easier than I imagined and as most of you already know, saving money is fun.  It was a blast.  I didn't save on all my toy purchases but I saved between a dollar and three bucks on everythign I bought.  I was shopping at Target this particular trip and and Target is one of the retailers that will match a competitors sale ad as well as an on line price. 

  I checked out with a little extra pep in my step, assured I would be doing this again.  If you don't do this already, I'm recommending it.  I didn't have a specific ap in mind.  I just went to the ap store, searched for barcode scanner, read a few reviews and downloaded the ap using the store's free wi-fi.  I'm sold.  Merry Christmas.

UNIVERSAL ORLANDO-METAL DETECTORS

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- No keys, no phones, no loose change. Visitors to the Universal Orlando theme park will have to go through metal detectors before they can ride the roller coasters. Park spokesman Tom Schroder says it's in response to what people are carrying in their pockets these days. He tells the Orlando Sentinel keys, phones and the like have no place on high-speed rides. Guests can store their items in free lockers at the coasters.
