Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 5, 2009
DeaLoco, a Dallas-based bargain-hunting site that finds and compiles the best deals on everyday items on the Internet, has partnered with Big in Japan, the Dallas company behind the popular personal shopping assistant ShopSavvy, to display DeaLoco bargains among ShopSavvy search results.
ShopSavvy, a recent finalist for a 2008 Crunchie Award and one of the T-Mobile G1's most downloaded applications, enables customers to comparison shop on the go, simply by scanning any product's barcode using the T-Mobile G1's built-in camera.
Using the barcode information, ShopSavvy searches the Web for the best prices on the product, displaying the lowest prices online as well as at nearby brick-and-mortar retailers. ShopSavvy looks up product reviews to further assist with purchase decisions.
"Through our partnership, ShopSavvy users now have the benefit of searching the DeaLoco deals database each time they scan a barcode," said Steve Cospolich, founder of DeaLoco. "If a deal on the scanned item exists in our database, the information is provided on the ShopSavvy results screen."
"We are pleased to partner with any company that can enhance ShopSavvy's results for the consumer, and DeaLoco helps us to do that," said Alexander Muse, co-founder of Big in Japan.
