Shopping News. Want to Know When That Item You Want Goes on Sale? There’s an App For That!

December 6, 2011 • Fashion Blog, Shopping

If you are like me, you get totally honked off when you think you git a great deal on something only to find out it was further reduced the day after you bought it. I mean full-price, never. But how can a fashionista worth her weight in shopping not want to know when the item she has been coveting gets marked down? Well now there’s an app for that! Savvy is a new mobile app that can help ensure you get the best deals this holiday-shopping season…even on items you have already purchased.

Savvy supports more than 40 retailers, including Toys R Us, J.Crew, Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma. If you bought something at a store with a price-protection policy, all you have to do is use your phone  to take a picture of your receipt or e-mail the electronic receipt to Savvy will then monitor the cost of the items you purchased and notify you if they are further reduced. How cool is that? It gets better. They’ll also tell you how to obtain a refund from the retailer.

You can also take a picture of an item’s bar code while you’re shopping, set a target price, and Savvy will let you know when the price drops to that preselected amount. You can even create a list of items you’d like to buy and get deal alerts for those. Every fashionista’s dream come true!

Savvy is free for the iPhone, and an Android version is coming soon.
