Protect Yourself While Online School Shopping! @CheetahMobile #Ad

    The final countdown has begun! We are officially about a week away from the start of the new school year here in New York City. This means that lots of last minute shopping for supplies and uniforms will take place between now and then.

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Pounce.mobi. However, all opinions expressed are my own.    I have always been someone who has preferred the convenience of shopping online instead of shopping at stores.  There is just something about being able to peruse through your favorite stores while sitting in your pajamas relaxing that has always been appealing to me.  I'm sure it has a lot to do with the hectic schedule that I keep throughout the week and loving just having a few moments to myself to relax and wind down.  As a result, I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the Pounce App this weekend.    You don't have to worry about cutting coupons, now with Pounce, an easy-to use, secure mobile app, you can instantly purchase products and goods from the money saving circulars and mailers that you love by simply scanning the image!  Yes, when you scan the image of any of your favorite products from weekly circulars, the app immediately recognizes the … [Read more...]
