I have what some might call a love/hate relationship with the holiday shopping season. On the one hand, I love shopping for, and finding, the perfect gift for the people on my list, and on the other hand, I hate parting with my hard earned cash to do it. In that same vein, I love a great bargain, but I loathe fighting the holiday crowds to find them. Trailing through crowded shopping malls is not my idea of a good time. You know exactly what I mean, don’t you?
Over the last few years, my inner hermit has taken over, to a large extent, and I find myself using the internet more and more for my shopping. I don’t have to even put lipstick on to shop online, my UPS delivery guy is as cute as he can be, and the thrill of the hunt is still there! The only drawback is that there are so many more sites to search for that illusive bargain. I worry, a lot, about missing a deal and paying more than I should.
Well, I have a new secret shopping weapon this year and I’ve been having a wonderful time since being invited to review it. It’s called Price Blink and frankly, it’s the best dadgum invention since sliced bread!
PriceBlink is a totally non-invasive browser add-on (also available as an IPad app) that removes the need to do any hard work and presents you with your options, automatically, while shopping online. It even tells you your shipping options so there are no surprises during checkout! It, quite effectively takes the worry out of shopping online! You only have to browse to the page of something you want to buy and PriceBlink will show up if it connected to the site you’re on. (I rarely come across a site that’s not in their database) In addition to showing you lower prices, PriceBlink automatically scans for coupon for the retailer you’re visiting and it’ll offer that up as well. When you’re not shopping, PriceBlink will stay out of your hair, you won’t even know it’s there, silently waiting in the background.
For a while now, I’ve had my eye on this cute little kitty tower for the furbabies. There were several sites I kept checking, watching for the price to come down. I checked it on PriceBlink and came up with a pretty good deal, but not quite good enough, so I added it to my PriceBlink Wish list and the very next day I got an email informing me that it was available at a significant savings!
Eureka! Price Blink found the exact item, on Overstock.com for $10 less, with a coupon code and FREE shipping! SOLD! It’s made a believer out of me!
Overall, PriceBlink has become my new favorite shopping tool. I love how it automatically shows the lowest price, I no longer have to spend time searching any number of sites myself to find the cheapest price. Just a few clicks of a button and the lowest price appears and will automatically redirect me to the product page. Seriously, saving money cannot get any easier.
I have no problems recommending this wonderful add-on to you all. You have nothing to lose (except maybe a little holiday stress!) You can download it HERE and start saving today!
