SCANBUY on CBS 4 Denver : Cell Phones Can Be Bargain Hunting Tools

(CBS4) DENVER Do you like to make a purchase and know you've walked away with the best deal?

"It could help you save money and help you get the better product," said a tester named Bailey.

Here's how it works: You take a picture of the bar code on a product, it freezes, and within seconds you're connected to the Internet.

"You finally become a totally educated consumer. Maybe sometimes you won't find a better price on the Internet, but at least you know," said ScanBuy CEO Olivier Attia.
