Jason Lee:
Jill good morning, so we all want to save a few bucks and I hear you can help us out.

Jill Cataldo:
Absolutely I'd love to talk to you about a new app called Flipp. And what Flipp is it aggregates all of the flyers and circulars in your area to make it very very easy for you to shop for deals. You can go in here and basically pick your favorite stores, enter your zipcode or locate it with the app. And you can find your grocery stores, general merchandise stores, clothing, everything that's going on sale-wise.
And what's so neat about this is that you can actually slide in the app to show the best deals. So if I want to buy things that are 30-percent off, 40-percent off , 50, it will highlight those and it makes it very very easy for shoppers to find the best prices for what they are looking for.

Jason Lee:
Sounds really cool, so what about planning ahead? Can it do that.

Jill Cataldo:
You know, it does. I'm a big believer in planning ahead, instead of running to the store and saying "Okay what am I going to buy now?" because I do think that the time you invest in this really does help maximize your savings. What's so nice about this app is that it's good for both kinds of shoppers. You know we've all been there, I'm hear in the parking lot, what else do I need? You can pull that app up right on your smart phone, tablet , good for android, IOS and you just pull it up there, search for what you want, it makes it very easy to search with categories too, if I'm looking for grocery, baby, it will also show you deals on those kinds of products for all stores on one screen. So if I'm looking for a diaper deal I can look at 10, 11, 12 stores at once and figure out who's got the best price.

Jason Lee:
Jill Catalda, really appreciate the tips and advice and we really appreciate the time. Thanks for being here. And Eye Opener continues.
