Times are hard right now for most of us, so we could all do with saving a bit of money when shopping online. Today, in this brief post, I thought I’d share three handy little tools that help me to save money when I’m shopping online:
Alertr lets you track prices across loads of different shops: Boots, Argos, and John Lewis to name but a few!
Once you’ve signed up for an account, you just copy and paste the link of the item that you want to track into their site. Once it goes down in price at all, Alertr will send you an email so that you don’t miss out on a good deal.
I’ve been using CamelCamelCamel for a couple of years to save money on things that I buy on Amazon. It’s there for tracking prices on everything on Amazon, except for Kindle books. You type in whatever it is you want to save money on, and pop your email address in the box, then add your desired price too. CamelCamelCamel will email you when the product you’re tracking falls to that price so that you don’t end up paying more than you wanted.
eReaderIQ is for those of us who have a Kindle. It allows you to track the price of Kindle books, and sends you an email when the eBook in question has reached your desired price. It works in a very similar way to CamelCamelCamel, by ensuring that you never have to pay too much for a Kindle book you’re interested in buying ever again.
As long as you can afford to wait until the product that you want comes down in price, you can definitely save money by using these three tools.
