A smartphone app created in Kansas City offers deals and savings at businesses all around the metro. Lantern shows you deals near you that are available right now. It's different from other deal websites and apps because there's no upfront cost to download it or use it. Lantern only offers deals for locally owned companies.
The Lantern - Local Deals app is available on both iPhone and Android. On Friday, April 11, for every new download, Lantern will donate $1 to Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
