Episode Teaser Image:
Amazon has a free smartphone app called Price Check and they're offering an interesting deal with it starting Saturday. You go into a store -- an actual physical bricks-and-mortar store -- find an item, scan it and the app will show you the price on Amazon.com. Then, Amazon will knock an additional 5 percent off that price if you buy it using the app. So the idea, from Amazon's perspective, is to have you go into a store somewhere else, but buy from Amazon.
