San Francisco, CA, July 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- With two new Price!pinx features at their fingertips, consumers now have greater power to make their dollars stretch further. Price!pinx, the leading price drop alert service dedicated to helping consumers avoid paying full retail prices, has recently launched target pricing and shopping lists on its website– making saving money even easier.
Bolstering its robust price monitoring service, Price!pinx
introduced two new features of its online service: shopping lists and target pricing. Since its introduction in March 2008, the free service has saved consumers more than $750,000.
Online shoppers have long been plagued with the problem of losing track of the products they want across a myriad of shops. While searching through countless sites to find the best prices on flat screen TVs, GPS navigators, and designer fashions, it is easy for online shoppers to forget where they saw the best deal.
This is where Price!pinx comes to the consumer’s rescue. With the new shopping list feature, Price!pinx consolidates the products from many retailers’ websites into one easy, manageable list. In addition, the new shopping lists allow Price!pinx members to quickly organize the products they want into wish lists, which are easily shared with family and friends. This way, Dad can get the golf clubs he wants for his birthday at the price Mom wants to pay.
Price!pinx then monitors the list of products and notifies shoppers via email when the products’ prices drop. And with the new target pricing feature, shoppers can now even set target prices for the products they want. They can then sit back and wait for Price!pinx’s price drop alerts, indicating when the product hits or drops below the target price the consumer wants to pay.
“It is quite amazing to see how frequently prices drop and how big the discounts are,” says Price!pinx co-founder Judy Chang. “Recently we noticed users requesting price drop alerts for real estate houses, and the timing is certainly right. Whether it is real estate, tech gadgets, or fashion, Price!pinx users now can organize their products in lists and receive price drop alerts while still shopping around.”
And with price guarantee refunds
, which are offered by many retailers and credit card companies, customers can shop without regret; if the price of a product drops even lower than what they paid, they can claim a refund for the difference.
“As consumers are further tightening their wallets, they are turning towards shopping services that help them stretch their dollars. We are proud to continue to add new features that allow consumers to !pinx high and buy low,” Chang states.
