I happened upon Frucall in a magazine about a month ago, and I wanted to try it a few times before sharing it with everyone. I’ve been very pleased with the site thus far, and while I’m especially excited to utilize it in my Christmas shopping, it’s going to be a fabulous shopping aid year round.
Using Frucall you can compare the prices on items you’re considering purchasing right there in the store utilizing one of three methods.
- Call 1-888-DO-FRUCALL (1-888-363-7822), enter in the barcode, and their automated system will give you a list of the best prices found online.
- Send a text message with the barcode to FRU11 (37811).
- Enter the barcode on their mobile website at www.frucall.com/m.
All methods are free through Frucall, but obviously on your end you’ll want to be conscious of what kind of plan you have with your cell phone provider. I love that you can choose what works best for you!
Once you’ve checked the prices, they have a boatload of other great features. Frucall automatically bookmarks your searches so you can pull them up again at home. You can also have them send a message to your friends about an item. If you’re calling Frucall, you can record a voice message to save for later. And you can even purchase the item directly through Frucall if you find a great price online!
In addition to the shopping tools, you can also schedule reminders for special occasions and setup PriceAlert texts to be notified when the price on a particular item falls below a limit you specify.
Getting the best price always works for me, and Frucall makes it easy and convenient!
