Users simply scan a storefront or nearby location with their iPhones, once the Real Deal app recognizes your location it will display animated pop ups showing customers deals available at that location. The Real Deal App can also be used from home with Amazon’s Alexa, shoppers can ask Alexa to tell them deals from the merchants around their location.
