According to Brandon, a ShopSavvy user from Detroit, tells this story:
I saved money using shop savvy. I used shop savvy to search for an item and used the mapping to locate sam’s club and go! when i got there i found the items was priced higher. so i took it up to the counter and scanned it in front of the manager. confounded that such technology even existed he matched the price and i saved ten dollars. target on the other hand wasn’t so friendly. they said it was against the rules for customers to scan items with their phones. (once they found out what i was doing) if they would’ve cooperated instead of making up new policies i would’ve saved more money.
I called the Target he visited (27300 Dequindre Rd. Warren, MI 586-573-4200) and talked to the store manager, Debbie, who indicated that she wasn’t aware of the policy. I asked her if she could check as I wanted to let our users know if they weren’t allowed to scan items in her store. She put me on hold for several minutes as she called her manager who indicated that whoever told Brandon he couldn’t use ShopSavvy was simply wrong.
Note: Everyone writes Shop Savvy instead of ShopSavvy. Should we just give up and go with the flow or stick with ShopSavvy?
