Using Price Check is as simple as it gets. Just fire it up, and point your phone's camera at the bar code of a product while you're out shopping. The app will then pull up the matching product (if available) for you to see its price on Amazon.com.

Price Check even lets you go one step further and purchase the product, if you find that Amazon's prices are cheaper.
