Black Friday 2018 is one of the busiest dates in the trade, as it promotes megaliquidation in several retail chains. The event takes place this Friday (23) and customers can follow the best retail discounts from apps like Zoom, Buscap and Cuponeria, specialized in this type of service.
Available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, they display the price history and thus prevent the user from buying at half the price. The aim is to monitor the values ??and ensure that a genuine offer is still up. Here are five apps chosen by TechTudo that can help keep you aware of the main promotions.

Pelando is a social network that brings offers and discount coupons gathered by the users themselves. Those who have already purchased a certain product at the published price can enjoy it, take the post higher in the feed and, thus, highlight offers with real advantages. The method prevents the user from falling into misleading advertising and saves time by informing purchase links that have not yet expired.
In the application, it is possible to search by category, in addition to signing up for offers to be notified as soon as something new appears. In addition, there is a general listing with all the offers on a single page, organized by the number of useful likes for those who do not know what to buy yet, but do not want to miss a good discount.

Cuponeria is a website that offers discount coupons from a series of stores and services, ranging from clothing, footwear and electronics stores, to restaurants and beverage retailers. The differential lies in publicizing online and in-person offers. When registering, the user can choose the brands of their preference to receive a personalized discount feed.
Such apps are useful to get extra discounts on prices released by stores during Black Friday. There are two ways: by entering a promotional code on the website or showing a voucher directly at the establishment.

Zoom is one of the main price comparators on the Internet with a catalog that covers practically every type of product sold at retail. With a pleasant design and simple to use interface, it allows you to search for a product and find the best price in online stores. The product page contains a summary that allows you to know at a glance if the price is lower than normal, in addition to the evaluation of other buyers.
The service also offers "Zoom Guarantee", a tool capable of displaying offers within the app itself without redirection to ensure that the price published in the advertisement is the same as that charged in the shopping cart.

The Buscap price comparator can also be a powerful tool to get the best prices on Black Friday. The app brings some of the same features as Zoom, but highlights the barcode scanner feature. By tapping the search field, the app allows you to open your cell phone camera to locate the physical products available at the store in e-commerce. Thus, it is possible to know if the online price is better in a few minutes.
Another advantage of Buscap is the popularity search filter, responsible for helping to filter promotions validated by other users of the service. With this, the search engine offers greater chances of being able to take advantage of offers before they end.

Similar to Pelando, Promobit is based on the collaborative effort of the users themselves to share promotions and discount coupons. The app stands out for the varied amount of filters and ways to search for an offer, such as search by category, by store, favorite products and most popular offers. It is also possible to do personalized searches and create a feed only with products from categories that interest you.
Another useful feature is the "latest coupons" menu, with discount vouchers in chronological order to take advantage of a discount as soon as it is posted by someone. With this strategy, they reduce the chances of the user not getting a price reduction because he missed the deadline or exceeded the limit for using a certain code.
