Last year I totally skipped the insane long lines on Black Friday.
Just. Couldn’t. Do it.
I just don’t love the insane crowds and late hours. The problem though was, I felt like I missed most of the good deals.
And I love a good deal.
I was considering giving Black Friday another go, but I am thrilled to share that this year I will be shopping online instead, with FreePriceAlerts. FreePriceAlerts is an automatic price engine that runs in your computer’s browser and alerts you if you can get a better deal – every single time you shop. Nice!
FreePriceAlerts is incredibly easy to download, and it totally works with most of your favorite retail stores. Here’s just a sampling of the sites that work with FreePriceAlerts:
You just click on the link HERE, and it quickly uploads to your browser. No signing up is needed!
When trying out FreePriceAlerts, I was impressed with how easy it is to use. A small window will just automatically pop up if a better price is available. For example, my son needs a new case for his iPod. He has been wanting something with Angry Birds, so while searching on Target’s website I found the perfect case. I was bummed to see it was out of stock… but wait! The FreePriceAlerts window popped open, and not only does Amazon have the case in stock, it’s $8 cheaper! Nice!
FreePriceAlerts generates an alert every four seconds, so you will always have the opportunity to save on everything you buy online – from toys and games to electronics and home goods.
Here’s another example. I know so many people who buy digital cameras from Wal-Mart since they claim to have the lowest pricing. This Fujifilm camera is a fabulous price at $159… but wait! FreePriceAlerts pops up and Sears actually has it for $30 cheaper! That is seriously so cool.
FreePriceAlerts isn’t just available on your desktop either! Here is a peak at the mobile version available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
I can’t wait to shop online for Christmas this year, and let FreePriceAlerts do all the bargain shopping for me! In fact, over the past two years FreePriceAlerts has saved online shoppers more than $50 million, with savings on the average purchase running about $26. Seriously so cool.
If you would like to give FreePriceAlerts a try for yourself, just visit their website HERE and click download to easily install FreePriceAlerts to Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari.
We have all four browsers on our computer… and yeah, I just totally installed it on all four. Boohyah! Bring on the holiday shopping!
UPDATE: Tomorrow FreePriceAlerts will be launching ziftr, a web-based dashboard that adds a new set of social shopping features designed to use the power of information and crowdsourcing to save consumers even more! Ziftr offers five enhanced pricing and product discovery features that increase shoppers’ ability to save valuable time and money. ziftr goes live on Friday, November 16 and I can’t wait to try it out!
