Save money shopping online and at bricks & mortar stores with these 6 best shopping apps, like RedLaser.

(MONEY Magazine) — Whether you are in front of your computer, standing in the checkout line or browsing at a store, these shopping apps will help you get a better price.

Essential app: RedLaser

Great for: Comparing prices

Price: Free

Available for: Android, iPhone, Windows Phone 7

Before you even think about buying that pair of shoes or power drill in person, scan (or manually enter) the product’s bar code: RedLaser spits out the best prices available both online and in brick-and-mortar shops nearby. Click BUY NOW to go directly to the website with the bargain price. Or get directions to the local store with the deal.

Slice

Great for: Tracking online purchases

Price: Free

Available for: Android, iPhone

Sync Slice with your Gmail or Yahoo account. It scours your inbox for online orders and helps you keep track of shipping. Best of all, if Slice detects a price drop and the merchant offers adjustments — Kohls.com and Walmart.com do, for example — the app will send you an alert.
