Find & Save app locates deals, offers cash back

Boot Camp feature for Friday, December 12, 2014

An app to help you find those last minute holiday shopping deals.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Trying to stretch your bank account during the holidays isn’t easy, but there are apps out there that can help.  Find&Save for iOS and Android was created by Wanderful Media where CEO Ben Smith says…a new feature called Cash Dash lets you get what amount to nearly instant rebates on some purchases…

“So if you’re out shopping at a mall and one of the stores in the mall really wants you to go in that store, they issue a Cash Dash alert which basically pushes something to your phone and says, hey, go to my store the next day and I’m going to give you ten bucks.  You walk in the store, your app opens,  it tells you about some things that are for sale in store, and then once you’ve purchased something, it asks you to take a quick snapshot of your receipt and then we send you the money that the retailer’s offered you for coming into their store.”

Again, the app is called Find&Save.   You can find us…at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
