Retailers such as Target and Amazon are embracing mobile applications to help consumers save money and time with features like digital wallets and augmented reality. When used strategically, apps can streamline in-store trips and online purchases, but shoppers could also find that convenience comes with a risk: impulsive decisions and overspending. “Now shopping can be anytime, anywhere, multiple times a day, which is great for customers who value convenience,” said Casey Taylor, a partner in the Atlanta office of Bain and Co., a management consulting firm. “But for customers on a budget, what I would share as the primary caution is that it makes it very easy — almost too easy.” Here’s how to get the most out of retail apps, while avoiding the downsides.

This story was produced for Jack Furrier Tire & Auto Care by #ThisIsTucson. Thanks for supporting the local businesses that support us! We all have one of those weekends where we have no idea what we're doing. You're too restless to stay home and those funds to go anywhere are low. (Thanks, holidays.) Lucky for us Tucsonans there's a place nearby where you can roam around in a picturesque countryside and not break the bank. We're talking about a wine weekend. Arizona's most "underrated" wine region is just an hour southeast in the lush pastures of Elgin and Sonoita.

How to get there: From Tucson, head down I-10 East and take … [Read more...] about How to have the perfect weekend in Southern Arizona wine country
Illegal gold molded into our wedding rings, dangling around our necks and hidden in our smartphones is polluting the rainforest with toxic chemicals and exploiting workers in Latin America. Gold miners have stripped roughly 415,000 acres of South American tropical forest, an area twice as big as New York City, according to researchers at the University of Puerto Rico — and the rate of deforestation is only getting worse.

And … [Read more...] about ‘Blood gold’ in your jewelry is poisoning workers and the rainforest. Here’s how to stop it.
