QR codes are one of the newest and fastest ways to get information from what you're reading into your smartphone. Now Sac&Co. has taken the QR code to the next level and we're putting it on TV. The viewer now has the ability to see something on TV and have it in your hands within seconds. Don't know how to do it? We'll tell you how!

First you need a smartphone that has the ability to download Applications (Android, I-phone, Blackberry, internet capable, etc.). Once you enter the App store on your phone use the "Search" option and type in "QR Code Reader". The first couple of options should be FREE QR code scanners. Do not PAY for a QR code scanner, there are many free ones available.

Once you have installed the App, you can open it and scan a QR code wherever you see it! That's it, very easy to get and use.

1) Just open the App and it will tell you that it is scanning. 

2) Hold your phone's camera up to the screen, directly over the QR code (make sure that the whole code is visible in your phone's touch screen).

3) You will know the code has scanned because your phone will take you directly to the webpage, contest, product, facebook page and much more that could be in the QR code.

No typing, no searching on your tiny touchscreen keyboard (we have them as well!) Let Sac&Co. and your phone do all the work for you!
