With Black Friday just around the corner, bulk retailer Sam's Club has launched its new 'Scan & Go' app. The app is designed to help fight 'Black Friday fatigue' by making it easier for customers to get in and out of stores quickly.

The Scan & Go app is a free application available for iOS and Android. Once downloaded, the app allows Sam's Club members to simply can the item they wish to purchase and pay directly from their mobile phone. On their way out of the store, customers simply have to show a digital receipt to the staff to verify their purchases.

While the app is indented to become a permanent check-out solution, the app will be particularly useful for Black Friday shoppers who are eager to skip lengthy lines.
