It’s the busiest shopping month of the year so here are two apps you can download to help save money – Sweep and Shping

Using unique augmented reality and geolocation features, Sweep provides shoppers a fun way to find, claim and share discounts around them. Personalised, hyper-local and real time, Sweep is the ultimate shopping companion.

Sweep’s flagship AR feature will help map your journey to stores and venues.

The aim is to bring people together who love to shop and create a trusted community where shoppers can share great deals and review products in a beautifully designed app. Sweep tailors your shopping experience, so you can find things to buy based on your personal preferences and current location. Really, it is an impulse buyer’s dream.

So save money over the Christmas period and download the latest shopping app, Sweep.

Also, the rewards app Shping will help you get some extra cash back while you shop from scanning product barcodes.

Shping has more than 30,000 users globally and over the past three months, Aussies have scanned a vast range of products a staggering 20,000 times using the app. Scanning products provides information about what it contains, where it was made and whether it’s certified or has been recalled.

In return for simply scanning or engaging with products on the app, users get rewarded directly by brands and retailers with Shping Coins. They work as a points system which shoppers can use to cash out directly into their bank account using the Shping app.

In December, when Aussies go to the supermarkets and shops to tick those must-haves and essentials off their Christmas shopping list, they will be rewarded with 10 times more Shping Coins than usual when they scan barcodes of products.

Conversion rate of Shping Coins into Australian Dollar:

  • Scan a product = 200 Shping Coins (equivalent to $0.09)
    For example: If you shop 100 items per month, you’ll get $9 back.
  • Invite a buddy (and he/she accepts) = 1,000 Shping Coins each (equivalent to $0.46)
  • Add a product review = 300 Shping Coins (equivalent to $0.13)
  • Add a new product = 500 Shping Coins (equivalent to $0.23)
