LOS ALTOS, Calif., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Catalog Spree, the personal digital mall that lets consumers browse, discover and shop their favorite catalogs, today announced Price Watch to alleviate the hassle of monitoring for sales and shopping for deals. This new time-saving feature marks Catalog Spree's next step in offering consumers a personalized, one-stop shopping experience - much like a personal shopper would provide - but on mobile devices. Price Watch does the work for consumers by monitoring for sales and sending alerts when personally selected products in favorite catalogs drop in price.
As the number one catalog shopping app for the iPad and iPhone, Catalog Spree is taking the work out of finding a sale. Rather than repeatedly checking stores and websites to see if a product goes on sale, consumers can use Price Watch to indicate that they want Catalog Spree to monitor sales for any or all of their favorite, most coveted products. Once the price drops, Catalog Spree sends an email notification. This simple and easy solution makes it easy for consumers to save time and money, while shopping their favorite brands.
"Catalog Spree is dedicated to creating a customized, personal shopper experience for consumers on their iPads and iPhones," said Joaquin Ruiz, CEO of Catalog Spree. "We know that saving time and money are important to our customers as they shop, so we developed Price Watch to delight our customers. By doing the work on our end, essentially shopping for sales for our customers, Catalog Spree is taking yet another step in delivering a top-of-the-line personalized shopping experience."
With more than half of Americans now owning smartphones, and one-third projected to have tablets by 2015 according to Forrester Research, providing consumers with a best-in-class mobile shopping experience is vital for retailers. In fact, Forrester predicts that U.S. mobile retail sales will grow from $8 billion to $31 billion by the end of 2017.
Catalog Spree offers consumers an innovative way to shop catalogs online - whether on the couch or on-the-go. The app features more than 350 catalogs from top-tier brands including L.L. Bean, Lands' End, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, One Kings Lane, and West Elm.
