In an effort to bring awareness to their mobile app, Amazon is offering consumers up to $5 worth of free credit if they compare a product in-store and decide instead to buy it from the e-tailer.
You must use Amazon's Price Check app on Android or iOS, which gives users the chance to scan a bar code, take a pic of the item, or use a traditional text search to find the item, price, details and reviews of products.
When you walk in stores, Amazon is asking that users submit prices of items via the app, so that the company can confirm they have the lowest prices.
"We scour online and in-store advertisements from other retailers, every day, year-round," said Sam Hall, director of Amazon Mobile. "Now, we are enabling customers to use the Price Check app to share in-store prices while they search for the best deals."
The promotion is good for 5 percent off, up to $5, for up to three items.
