Pushpins: Save Time and Money on Grocery Shopping
Named a top mobile shopping app by the Anderson Cooper Show, the Washington Post and Consumer Reports, Pushpins is a free app that helps users plan and save on their groceries. Founded by Jason Gurwin, Dan Lambert, and Peter Michailidis in 2010, Pushpins allows you to build your shopping list, which you can share with your family and sync to your other devices, by searching or scanning over 200,000 products. The app then automatically brings up any digital coupons and weekly specials that match the items on your list, and you can redeem those coupons instantly when you use your store savings card at the register.
Available in over 2,000 grocery stores across the US, Pushpins also lets you see an item's price, quantity, size, notes, nutritional information, and product image. Additionally, the app sorts your list by aisle to help you find things quickly and easily. Backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Pushpins was recently acquired by Performance Marketing Brands.
