pktpc.com brings you a unique application that will help your pocketbook and your brain! (download is listed wrongly--it takes ~5 minutes on a 56k modem to download D&S!) dollars&SENSE! is a Pocket PC program that'll calculate true percentages and prices while you shop...it's so simple to use, anyone can benefit from the information dollars&SENSE! provides. So many stores use the "XX% off today!" or "take an additional XX% off the already reduced price" sales schemes. Trying to shop, while keeping track of the real cost of an item, and totaling all of the items you buy, in your head, can lead to over-spending, or worse, the embarrassment of returning an item to the shelves after you have reached the checkout stand!
Here's where dollars&SENSE! comes to the rescue. Not only is it easy to enter and keep track of items, using dollars&SENSE!, but the application helps you to figure real prices and percentages exactly, and with minimal effort.
Now, the store is hoping that you are:
1) not very practiced at quickly figuring math in your head, and
2) don't have dollars&SENSE!
Because these sales techniques encourage you to believe that you will pay less by the total of all of the sales percentages, it is misleading, and causes many a shopper to buy impulsively, or even when they are told the real price, they buy at any rate, since they are already standing at the checkout counter. Additionally, many people are not practiced at doing arbitrary percentages in their heads. Well, you won't ever face these costly situations again, not when you use dollars&SENSE!
