You can also use the app to calculate how much an item will be after you use a coupon.
The app will show you how much the sale and coupon save you on the item and the sale price.
Also, for example, with sales where the signs will say something like, On sale! 25% off plus an additional 15% off!  This app can help you.  It has a box to enter the additional percentage also.
