Free? And save money? Yowza!

February 10, 2009

In these troubling economic times it’s always nice to find a way to save a few cents here and there. A new app coming down the pipe soon for the iPhone and iPod Touch will help you do just that.

Yowza plans to offer deals and coupons downloadable and scannable (two words after I write them I’m not sure are real) on the screen of your iPhone and iPod Touch. Co-founded by Greg Grunberg (a.k.a. Matt Parkman from the NBC show “Heroes”), the free program will also use the iPhone’s GPS capabilities to find deals and coupons for businesses nearby you.

I for one can’t wait to test this out in the Yuba-Sutter area, for obvious reasons. Hopefully coupons on screens don’t scare too many merchants.
