RedLaser, eBay’s ultra-popular mobile app, which lets users research and purchase items directly from their smartphones, is now out in a new version 4.4 for iPhone. The updated mobile app offers numerous new personalization and local shopping features, and can help you shop smarter.
“RedLaser is the ultimate shopping companion,” said Rob Veres, General Manager of RedLaser and Senior Director of Innovation and New Ventures at eBay. “We’re excited to debut a new local deals tab that displays a map of local stores with deals near you. We’ve incorporated coupons, deals, local weekly circulars and even searchable in-store maps for selected stores. You can also receive notifications when you are in or near stores that have deals available.”
The latest RedLaser update features:
- An All New Local Deals Tab: RedLaser now includes a new way for you to discover local deals and browse local stores. The Local Deals tab helps you shop more efficiently and save money with a map of stores with great deals, and added details such as store hours, coupons, circulars, store maps and more.
- A Shopping Experience Catered to You: Open RedLaser in certain Babies“R”Us, Toys“R”Us, CVS, GNC, IKEA, Macy’s, Sears, Home Depot, Target, Walgreens or Best Buy stores and find everything you need to shop and save, including coupons, deals, weekly circulars and store maps (Walgreens and Home Depot only). You can also opt-in to receive push alerts when the store you’re shopping in has great deals in RedLaser.
- Maps with Easy Search: Open an in-store map of a Walgreens or a selected Home Depot store in RedLaser, search for your product and instantly see a pin on the map indicating the exact product location in the store.
By leveraging eBay Inc.’s suite of technologies including Milo, Where, GSI and PayPal, RedLaser is becoming even more personalized and local with this latest release.
