112_Googlegoggles_SSShopping for the best products at the best prices is going to get even easier in 2012. Of course, you have your subscription to ShopSmart magazine to help you find the best of the best (not a subscriber? Click here). In the meantime, here are some other cool tools you may want to check out.

Google Goggles: Instead of typing in product names to search, this android app lets you snap a photo of say, a book, a product logo, a wine label, to find out more about it. Another cool feature: If you'll be traveling to a place where you don't know the language, you can also snap a photo of printed phrases and the app will translate for you. Snagged too many Groupon deals you're not going to be able to use? Or looking to scoop some up that got away from you? This site lets you resell or buy past Groupon, Living Social, and Buy With Me deals. Just click on your city and start wheeling and redealing.

Link, Like, Love: If you're an American Express cardholder, here's another way to save while shopping. Cardmembers can link their cards to the Link, Like, Love Facebook page and get deals and rewards based on their likes, interests, and interactions with Facebook friends.
