PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, shoppers can skip the long, early morning lines on Black Friday and still get the best deals. FreePriceAlerts, the automatic price engine that has saved online shoppers more than $50 million, downloads directly into your browser and alerts you if you can get a better deal – every time you shop. This holiday season, as toys, electronics and home appliances top holiday gift lists, shoppers can save an average of $26 on each purchase.
The FreePriceAlerts service automatically alerts web surfers to potential savings while they are shopping the sites they normally visit. When consumers visit their favorite online retailers, the FreePriceAlerts engine generates an alert if it finds the product at a lower price elsewhere, letting shoppers know how much they can save, and providing a direct link for purchasing the item at the lower cost. If the shopper has found the lowest price, it confirms it with a green check mark.
"FreePriceAlerts is effective because it does all the work for you – once the web app is downloaded, consumers just need to shop the way they normally would and the price engine does all the work," said Robert Wilkins, founder and CEO of FreePriceAlerts. "This holiday season, everyone can be sure they are getting the best deals, without heading to the mall at midnight on Black Friday."
Tens of thousands of leading retailers work with FreePriceAlerts, including Amazon, Macy's, Home Depot, BestBuy, Target, Sears and Walmart. The service generates an alert every four seconds, saving consumers money on everything they buy online – from toys and games to electronics and home goods.
FreePriceAlerts is a service and brand of myVBO (Virtual Business Operations) which was launched in 2008 in Peterborough, New Hampshire. FreePriceAlerts offers both a browser version and a mobile app. As consumers shop on their favorite sites, FreePriceAlerts searches tens of thousands of the most popular retail sites for the best price on the product. The app downloads in seconds and quickly provides information on lower prices or confirms that a customer found the lowest price. For more information, visit www.freepricealerts.com.
