Smartphone scannable coupons

Good Morrning!

I logged onto AFC today and one of the ads on the side was for Duncan Hines. It said, "Capture the Code". So I scanned it with my phone and then I got a coupon.
My question is.. What are these called and is there a site that lists these coupons? I havent seen too many of them and was curious.

Thanks!

They're 3rd party ads, so they're difficult to track. I see them periodically on random websites as well. sorry, but not much help

I've also noticed that some of the recent inserts had various promos, etc with scannable barcodes.

I have a coupon / grocery app on my phone and scan barcodes using the same lense that is used to take pictures or videos. In the app that I use a box with a red line across it appears in the view finder and it beeps when it has read the barcode. It takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it you will love it!

Yes, it *is* a droid, !...an HTC Evo at that.

I am almost afraid to mention the name of the app because I've posted about it a couple of times and do not want anyone to think that I work for the software company.

It is Grocery King Version 5.6.

Grocery King 5.6

There are free apps out there that offer a lot of the same features. If you (meaning anyone reading this) are new to technology, then this app is probably not for you. It has a lot of features and can be overwhelming if you are just looking for something basic that will get the job done.

I love what the reviews say about it. Does it compare prices? I saw something about it letting you know if it was higher or less than other places. Also does it have a way of letting you put q's in?

It does what it claims it will do, but involves more user input than is described in the description given by its developers.

It does compare prices, but based on the data you input or the barcodes you scan.

Once you get used to the app and get things configured the way that you want them configured it is a helpful tool.

My DH thinks it has too many features and has opted to install a more basic app on his phone, which is humorous since he is a computer programmer, !

It does have a check box option for Q's and a field for notes. I use the note field for specific information, such as:

Colgate toothpaste
Sale Price: $1
Q: $1
Final Price: Free

This way when I print the list or email it to myself or my DH it will have all of the needed info.

I would check the android marketplace to see if they still offer a free trial version, because it is definitely not for everyone. I would feel bad if you bought it on my recommendation and hated it.
