The Consumers Association of Singapore (Case) has released an app rewarding users for sharing pricing information to allow comparisons while shopping.
Users of the Price Kaki app, which is expected to launch at the end of this month, can submit photos of any prices they come across while shopping for hawker food or groceries, allowing other users to save costs. Contributors to the pricing information platform are eligible to claim rewards such as film vouchers.
Price Kaki’s base pricing information will be updated daily by FairPrice, Giant, Sheng Siong and Prime Supermarket.
Future updates to the app are expected to be broad-ranging and include other businesses such as cafes.
