Craigspass – Save where you are! (Free) by Brand New App Inc. is a shopping app that creates a list of amazing deals near you. Every item is at least 50 percent off the retail price. Currently, the app only lists deals in Canada, but users can post amazing sales that they find, so it is only a matter of time before everyone will be able to take advantage of Craigspass.
When you open the app it will ask for your location and will generate a list of items on sale for at least 50 percent off. Deals are listed in relation to your current location. I live in California and the nearest sales on the list were in Ontario, Canada. I won’t be hopping in the car and rushing to Sears in Canada anytime soon. However, users can post deals to the app from anywhere in the world. The only requirement is that it has to be at least 50 percent off the retail price.
Deal listings include the name, a description of the item, the percentage of discount, the original price and the current price. The store that the sale is at and its distance from your current location are also listed. Register with the site or log in using Facebook to have emails sent to you regarding items that you are interested in. The email will include a picture of the item you want and the name, address and phone number of the store where the sale was found.
If you want to post a deal you have found you must have a Facebook account. You just take a picture of the item, give it a title and description, list the previous and current price, and include the location. There are a number of popular stores already listed in the location finder, but you can also add a store if you don’t see it on the list.
Overall, the app does exactly what it says. It brings you amazing deals that are 50 to 90 percent off the retail price. Although it is not particularly useful to anyone outside of Canada at the moment, it can be if enough people start posting deals near them. It is available for free in the App Store.
