Call me a dork, but I love statistics. Shopping statistics, that is. Websites like DealNews.com now track the who, what, where and when of sales. As long as retailers follow their past patterns, all that information can be used to save money this holiday season. How? Timing. Using several years worth of sale tracking data, DealNews can predict the best time to buy a particular type of product.

    Absolutely not... I do use Amazon.com on my PC along with a few other sites. I use my Droid to text and make calls... Sick of the applications...

    Don't have one, but other than that, how I can buy something without walking in the shop and paying for it? Cash.

    I've found that attempting to use my smartphone for many things - this included - only reduces efficiency.

    How else would you do christmas, or any other shopping? I'm certainly not going to a mall. But I have been to several *local stores*, where honestly I do the vast majority of my shopping.

    SHOP LOCAL

    Delegated all Xmas gift shopping to my Wonder Woman (except for her gift), then visited Amazon.com for a peek at her wish list. Selected from her wish list (as she did from others' wish lists at Amazon), and all our shopping was done in one. Who needs a "smart phone for a dumb shopper" when one has a smart(er) computer for just as dumb shoppers? ;-) Easy-peasy.

    Nope. I only have a dumb phone, as in, it only gives and takes calls.

    I can always find it cheaper if I use my phone. Some times I find it in stores most of the time I use my phone to look for it on Amazon and its cheaper.

    I'm on my phone a lot of the time. Usually it's the first place I go to start looking for what I want to buy, and then comes the comparing, and once I find what I want, I'll usually just buy it then if I can. It just so happens that I'm usually on my phone when I do.

    More than likely. It seems my phone is always on. Plus, it helps to look and see if a store has what I want before I go there.

    If I'm out I'll use the internet on my phone to see if a store has what I need. So it is helpful.
