Bargain hunting continues to go high-tech.

A new survey shows nearly 30 percent of shoppers with mobile devices are using applications that help them find the best bargains.

That's triple the number using the deal-finders last year. However, shoppers are concerned about these apps and how they can track your location.

Three quarters of those using mobile apps said they will turn off the tracking feature while they shop.
