Garage Sale Tracker is the best site for budgetnistas to find and advertise yard sales, flea markets and consignment shops. Their site is user friendly since it is easy to navigate. Plus, they feature easy to use online tools that allow prospective buyers to easily find garage sales. Best of all, it is free!
They just launched an iPhone application for both the weekend treasure enthusiasits and the one time shopper. You’re no longer confined to the restraints of your computer now you can find any garage sales listed on their website right in the palm of your hands.
Here are a few noteworthy features with this app:
1. My Location – Using the my location button you can use the phone’s GPS feature to identify the zip code for your current location. This is especially useful if you’re driving around neighborhoods and want to see what sale are available in your area.
2. Daily Planner – They’ve add a new feature to the phone not yet available on their website that allows you to bookmark listings and plan your garage sale day.
3. Contact Seller – Want to contact a seller? Their application allows you to call the seller from the application.
To celebrate the release of their iPhone application they’re giving away two FREE iPhones. The winning prize will be a $199 gift certificate to the Apple store, which may be used toward the purchase of a 16GB iPhone, or toward any other official Apple products or services. This is currently the price listed by Apple for a new 16 GB 3GS iPhone, and they were advised by Apple that awarding the certificate is the best way to conduct the giveaway.
The giveaway will conclude on June 4th, 2010. Click here to find out how to enter.
