How to ALWAYS score the best deals.....Mobile Apps with instant price comparisons

User Rating: / 1

How to ALWAYS score the best deals.....Mobile Apps with instant price comparisons - what it's what Bricks and Mortar Retailers fear most about Online Shopping. While having a friend over for dinner one evening, I was bemused to find him waving his Smart Phone taking pictures of my kitchen appliances, books, pottery, vase and pretty much everything in sight! That night I found out about Apps that scan barcodes; instantly comparison shops and tells you where you can buy the exact things (oftentimes much cheaper) online!

I had to get out of the digital domain that is my world (hey, don’t judge me!) and test this in the “real world”, so I walked into a large computer store to browse at some new laptops. The couple next to me did what I would have done ions ago - check out the three or four similar models on the shelf then dropped the one they wanted into their cart. I waved my smart phone over the Sony Vaio I had my eyes on and presto - instantly comparison shopped - logged into 8BillionBUYERS, then bought it online - saved $107 just by waving my hand AND earned money towards charity! It’s the coolest thing - interestingly, it wasn’t the $107 savings I got a real kick out of, it was knowing I’ve now got the power to get the best deal out there - anytime, anywhere instantly! Due Diligence, Smart Comparison Shopping, Cost Savings and Philanthropy; all in the palm of your hands! 4 more reason I’ll always shop online!!

"It doesn’t show up on the stat sheet," recalled Carolina wide receivers coach Lance Taylor, McCaffrey’s position coach the past three seasons at Stanford. Star Lotulelei Jerseys "It doesn’t show up on any highlights or anything because it was called back. "But it was just an unbelievable, freak-of-nature return." You’ve heard about the "wow" factor McCaffrey has brought to the Carolina Panthers' offense as a running back, slot receiver and wide receiver.

You’ve heard how the eighth pick of the draft has juked out middle linebacker Luke Kuechly and others to the point running back Jonathan Stewart said nobody in the NFL will be able to stop McCaffrey one-on-one. Cam Newton Jerseys Well, oh by the way, McCaffrey is just as dangerous on special teams. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound dynamo didn’t return a punt or a kickoff in Carolina’s preseason opener against Houston. There are no guarantees he will in Saturday’s preseason game at Tennessee. There’s no real reason to risk injury. Greg Olsen Jerseys But McCaffrey is listed first on the depth chart at punt returner and as a backup as a kickoff returner. You can bet he’ll be a weapon when the regular season starts.

"He's a home run hitter when it comes to the return game," Taylor said. "He's special, just like all the other phases that we’ve seen him working." The Kansas State return that didn’t count magnifies that. Jonathan Stewart Jerseys Taylor recommended Jim Skipper take a look at it before the draft, when the running backs coach asked for a few examples of what McCaffrey could do. "Ten minutes later, Coach Skipper came back in and he was like, 'Hey, man! This guy is pretty special,'" Taylor recalled. The Panthers arguably haven’t had a punt-return specialist this special since Steve Smith in his first three seasons (2001-2003). Smith returned four punts for touchdowns during that span, two coming in 2002.

There have been only four other punts returned for touchdowns in team history, all by different players. Kelvin Benjamin Jerseys This isn’t to suggest McCaffrey will be returning punts for touchdowns like Devin Hester, who holds the NFL record with 14. McCaffrey had only one punt return for a touchdown at Stanford, a 63-yarder in the 2016 Rose Bowl against Iowa. He had only one kickoff return for a touchdown, a 98-yarder against California in 2015.
