Hi, good to see you. Let’s get to the recap first. Every move you make on your phone is tracked and sold. We’ve got the carrier that does this and what you need to do to opt out. I’ll walk you through this and then Amazon is investing in a *** food delivery app that you probably have on your phone right now and that means discounts for you. And finally, we’re heading into one of the biggest shopping events of the year and it’s not just Amazon slashing prices. I have the scoop on other sales at other retailers that you can cash in first what you do on your phone is about to be sold to third-party companies. Now it’s for T mobile and sprint customers who have Android smartphones. So if you have an Apple iphone, you’re good to go. This is for T mobile and sprint with an android. It’s called the App Insights program reports. Suppose the phone company collects app data that advertisers can buy and use to target you with more ads. So what is collected, things like what apps you have on your phone, how often you use them and what you even surf the internet your identity will be masked but you will be grouped with d Other people who have similar issues will then target apps, data, interests, and ads to your group. If you wish to withdraw from the program. They don’t make it easy. Let me walk you through this, you need to go to the google play store, download another app, the magenta marketing platform choice app, follow the instructions. Next, Amazon is getting into the food delivery business. He invests in Grubhub to be a *** major competitor with Uber Eats and Doordash. Amazon used to have a food delivery app called amazon restaurants. It was so small, I don’t remember, it closed in 2019 because it couldn’t compete with uber eats and doordash. But now that they are, Amazon is investing in grubhub to get the job done. The company has just announced this primary subscriber. So if you have prime, you can now get grubhub subscription *** for free. Usually it costs around $10*** per month to be part of the loyalty program and with that you get access to free shipping on select orders, deep discounts, coupons and even free food . Finally, speaking of Amazon Prime Day is approaching, but it’s not the only retailer with big deals, goals like no we’re not letting you own July 12th and 13th. Target is hosting sale days July 11-13. Take this amazon, what will be on sale? Target is advertising big stuff, 40% off kitchen appliances, up to 50% off clothes and toys, even tech like headphones, you can even save $70 on Apple Walmart products and the best buy also by reducing prices and organizing big discounts during the week as well. So if you see something on Amazon Prime Days, it’s on sale. Check these other retailers to make sure you’re getting the best price and buy that one. That’s all for today.
