ShopSavvy is much more than a price-comparison app; it is a community in which users add value to the shopping experiences of others and share information about the savings they’ve received.
Dallas, TX (Vocus) September 1, 2010
Big in Japan, the leader in barcode-powered shopping by mobile consumers, announced that Heather Brown-Smith, 44, of Placentia, Calif., has won the company’s first “Tweet to Win” contest by helping to spread the word about ShopSavvy®, the local retail shopping app for the iPhone, Android and Nokia smartphones.

Big in Japan also launched a second “Tweet to Win” contest, beginning today and accepting entries through Sept. 30.
“ShopSavvy is much more than a price-comparison app; it is a community in which users add value to the shopping experiences of others and share information about the savings they’ve received,” said Alexander Muse, co-founder of Big in Japan. “In this spirit, ‘Tweet to Win’ engages social network users to spread the word about ShopSavvy -- with great results.”
