Attention, shoppers: If you just decided to join the Black Friday shopping crunch but didn’t prepare well, don’t despair: Just pick up your smartphone.

Retailmenot, CouponCabin and CouponSherpa all deliver discount coupons, and many of which can now be simply flashed at the cash register, where the bar code can be scanned from your phone.
