I am a bargain shopper. I have to be. Living in Brooklyn with two kids is not cheap. That's why I live for sales like Prime Day, where I can usually be sure that the price I'm getting is the best price out there. However, this year is different. This year, retailers like Target and Walmart are joining in on the two-day sale, making it especially hard to determine who is selling what and for how much. Thankfully, there are apps for that. Here's how to compare prices on Prime Day to get the best deal, because no one needs to overspend.
In the past several years, dozens of price finder apps have been developed that claim to find the best deal on whatever it is you're looking for. The gold standard for several years has been the community-based app WikiBuy. And it's still great. It's easy to navigate, and the speed of the updates is out of this world. But it's not the only player in the game anymore. Some of the apps are optimized for mobile, some are Chrome extensions that will have the best price automatically popping up the minute you navigate to or search for an item, and others check for coupon codes to make sure you're getting the best deal on the item you're buying as you're buying it.
I've picked the best bets for busy moms after putting them through the rigors myself on my shopping list.
