Without further ado, let's see the list of the best price comparison apps for Android and iOS devices. These apps allow you to search for deals and save more on your purchases.


ShopSavvy makes comparing items a whole lot easier. You just need to tap the “Scan” button at the bottom of the screen and put the barcode in the onscreen box to receive a list of both online and local retailers that have the item in stock. Even if you don’t have the barcode, you can use the search tool to look for a specific product.

Moreover, ShopSavvy allows you to set up notifications for certain items, searches, or categories. As a result, you will be notified as soon as an online or physical sale turns up. Overall, it is a great app that allows users to shop for deals, browse related products, save their favorite items, and share sales with others.


Mycartsavings is a highly efficient and user-friendly price comparison app that comes with a multitude of functions to make your work easier. You can use it to quickly search for products to compare prices with the help of the search box, barcode scanner, or voice recognition. Thereafter, you just need to scroll to see the prices offered by stores such as Amazon, Walmart, and eBay.

Also, Mycartsavings provides a price tracker to help you receive alerts via email. Moreover, you can view notifications for excellent promotions, daily deals, and coupons for online retailers. It is available for free download for both Android and iOS devices.


BuyVia is an especially useful app for comparing prices from leading retailers. If you are in possession of a code, then you can use the barcode or QR scanner. Otherwise, you just need to enter a term in the search box to start comparing prices from different sellers. You can directly shop deals from within the app for popular stores such as Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s, Nordstrom, and many more.

Granting BuyVia access to your location allows you to check out excellent deals in your area. The app lets you browse by category or by store, and also gives you coupons offered from online or local stores, as well as the BuyVia website.

Amazon Shopping

If you’re a regular customer at Amazon already, then you might be familiar with their incredible price comparison app feature. By tapping on the camera icon in the right-hand corner of the search bar, you will be able to click photos of a product, choose a product’s photo from your camera folder, and auto scan bar codes to conveniently search through Amazon’s choicest available options.

Although this feature only lets you immediately search through Amazon’s pricing, you can generally compare products in real-time from physical retailers to check an item’s price on Amazon while you’re at a physical retailer.


Reebee is a flyer app that has thousands of active weekly users. It works by comparing your favorite stores and giving you details about the choicest deals and coupons presently available. Apart from that, you can use it as an excellent price comparison tool as well. With its help, you can search through flyers individually or search an item to view its present price comparison across different store locations.

Also, you can use Reebee to compare prices while you are at the store and display the flyers using the app. That way, you can easily perform an in-person grocery store price match whenever available.


Flipp is a great price comparison app for checking out all the weekly deals available at the moment. It essentially works as a virtual flyer display; using your present location, it displays the best savings in your area. You can choose to search by store to review a favorite flyer or search by item to compare prices across various flyers.

The creators of Flipp have stated that users in North America typically saved an average of $45 per week after adding the app to their weekly shopping habits. Apart from price comparisons, it also lets you create shopping lists and watch lists, save your loyalty cards in one place, and share deals with your contacts. However, it does suffer from occasional bugs due to constant weekly updates.


Grate is mainly intended for users who are primarily interested in finding deals on personal care products, electronics, beauty products, and groceries. Apart from comparing prices between retailers, it stands out from its peers by virtue of its incredible review aggregation abilities. When a user searches for a product on the app, it compiles thousands of reviews taken from various retailers to help them make more informed purchases.

Also, Grate allows you to search for products based on ingredients, making it much easier for you to find food and beauty products that meet your specific requirements.

Walmart App

Walmart’s mobile app for Android and iOS is undoubtedly the best price comparison app for people who do most of their shopping at Walmart. It includes a barcode scanner that allows you to quickly search for products on Walmart and compare prices with other stores. It comes with various special features intended specifically for Walmart shoppers, such as a “Scan & Go” feature that lets users scan products and check out in-store from their phones for contact-free shopping.

You can also use the Walmart app to order groceries and other items online and find products in-store. If you want to unlock member-only benefits such as free shipping, you can upgrade to Walmart+ for $12.95 per month.


Rakuten is a free mobile app that makes it easy for you to find deals, compare prices, and earn rewards. After you download the app and start shopping, it quietly works in the background to find relevant deals, promo codes, and coupons. Whenever it finds a lower price on another website, it will notify you and help you save money by switching sites.

The most unique virtue of Rakuten is its cashback feature that lets users earn cashback on purchases from leading platforms such as Amazon, Walmart, Sephora, and more.

QR Reader

QR Reader offers one of the speediest and simplest ways to compare prices on your mobile device. To get started, you just need to open the app and scan a barcode using your camera. Instantly, you will gain access to various links for Amazon, eBay, Google, and many more purchasing options.

Don’t worry if you don’t have the barcode or QR code accessible, for there are search options available as well. The app smoothly filters through online content to give you relevant sales and product details. You can take it along for shopping and compare your prices in real-time in the store itself.
