Ask Brad: What Shopping Apps Do You Use? | Lifestyles
By: Brad Wilson, National Lifestyle Content Desk
In this week’s Q&A, Brad Wilson from Brad’s Deals answers questions on his favorite shopping strategies — and how to use technology to find the best deals.
Q: What’s your strategy for getting everyone crossed off that shopping list?
Brad: Sometimes figuring out what to buy for someone can be hard. When that comes up, I definitely make it a point to regularly check out the Brad’s Deals Holiday Gift Guide. It has tons of giftable options at different price ranges, and new deals are added throughout the holiday season. There are classic gift items, and also creative, outside-the-box ideas. You can view the gift guide online and through our mobile apps.
Q: When it comes to online tools, what do you prefer using?
Brad: I love using the combination of the Brad’s Deals app and deal alerts. It is such a timesaver. I just go to the “Deal Alerts” section on the app, and enter keywords or brands, and then select if I want an email notification, a text notification, or both. I usually go with the text notification. That way I find out right away when a new deal is posted that matches my alert. Once I’ve ordered what I need, I can turn off the alert (and probably set a few more).
