Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- When you head out to do your Christmas shopping, make sure to take your smartphone. We'll show you how to turn it into a powerful and money-saving tool for your next trip to the mall. How?

Because there's an app for that.

Imagine, you've found that perfect gift for the one you love - it's a little more than you want to pay, and you think could I find this cheaper at another store?

Now without putting on the miles you can compare, shop smarter and save big with the RedLaser App.

Here's how it works...

You just line up the barcode with the marked area on my phone scan it. It then brings up the retailers who carry it and for how much.

It searches millions of products at thousands of online and local retailers to find the best prices and even gives me descriptions and product reviews.

You can even make the purchase right through your phone with paypal and have it shipped to you or pick it up at the store. And if you're looking to save more money, Redlaser can help you find deals and coupons from hundreds of stores and even has deals for the day.

It even lets you scan and store all of your loyalty cards so they're in one place and you don't lose them or forget them at home.

And it's not only for the mall, if you're in the grocery store you can scan food too and the app will tell you everything you need to know, including product ratings, nutrition facts, and critical allergen information.

Red laser is free on the apple and google play market. It also scans QR codes.
