Don't you just hate it when you buy something at full price, only to find out a week later that the item has gone on sale? With the Eyeona app, however, you'll be able to take advantage of this situation every time it happens. The Eyeona app helps shoppers track the prices of their purchases (or items they'd like to buy), and then alerts them to drops in price.

Available for both iPhone and Android smartphones, the Eyeona app will scan your receipts, and then send you an email if the items you've recently purchased go on sale. However, the app currently works with only participating retailers, but these include big brands like Bloomingdale's, Costco, Best Buy and more. Users can also use the Eyeona app to create list of things they would like to buy in the future and set target prices for these items. When their prices drop, Eyeona will alert shoppers by email.

As consumers maintain their thriftiness despite coming out of recession, any innovation that offers a practical, money-saving advantage is a keeper. Thus, the Eyeona app is certainly a tool worth using!
