iOS App Review: Big Brown Bag

Big Brown Online Bag

Bloomingdale’s Big Brown Bag is a shopping app devoted to Bloomingdale’s department store.

There are several shopping options within the app.  You can browse the online store and shop directly from the site or search locations in your area for items to pick up in store.

There other shopping tools as well.  Users have the option to set up a gift registry and manage it.  One can also search a registry and buy gifts online for friends that may be registered at Bloomingdale’s.  There is also a  section to check out special offers for the online store.

Another feature available is the ability to scan items in store and order them from the online store.  Finally, your Bloomingdale’s credit account, bill pay and loyalist accounts are easy to manage through the app.

 

Pros
Super easy to navigate.
Setting up your credit account is very easy.
Helps manage loyalist account

Cons
App runs slowly.
Shuts down during purchases often.

 

Bottom Line
This is a great app if you are an avid Bloomingdale’s shopper.  The convenience of being able to pay your account bill through the app is great.  If you do not have a credit account with the store it is not really worth the time. I f all you do is shop then the online site is sufficient.

If you have a credit account download the app!
