A Penny Saved…

Megan Perry

Want a deal, but do not know where to look? Who in college is not pinching every penny, while trying not to sacrifice the fun? Talking from experience, this can become a difficult balancing act. A person can only cut so many coupons and participate in dollar bowling. For those looking for an easy way to find those discounts, Google is offering a new mobile application that will allow users to do just this.

Called Latitude, this new money saving app shows nationwide deals. For those interested, it will be offered for Android Google Maps and iPhones.

The app will allow users an opportunity to find discounts at various locations such as: Arby’s, Macy’s, RadioShack, Finish Line, Famous Footwear, Great Clips, Naturalizer, Quiznos, and American Eagle Outfitters.

How Google is proposing to make its program different from similar ones already being offered is through the addition of a status system updates.

Basically, it is the same concept as frequent shopping points. The more a person goes to a particular place to search for specials, the better the deals are down the line.
