NEW YORK, May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneur magazine today reveals its selection of Price Protectr, a free online service providing consumers with e-mail alerts on price changes, as one of its "100 Brilliant Companies" of 2011. Entrepreneur's annual cover story honors "the best, brightest and boldest" companies in ten different categories.
Selected from thousands as one of only ten in the "Value" category, Price Protectr earned kudos from the leading business magazine for the website's ability to save shoppers money before and after a purchase.
Price Protectr provides a free, automatic way to track prices on items you want to buy, so you can time the purchase and see the price history of the item. Once you buy, Price Protectr helps you figure out how to get money back if the price drops later.
After almost five years, Price Protectr, a trusted market leader, has provided hundreds of thousands of alerts to consumers, tracking prices before and after the purchase, and sending an e-mail alert when prices change. Price Protectr users have entrusted over $50 million in volume to Price Protectr's alerts, and saved up to $3 million.
"We're thrilled about this recognition," said Price Protectr CEO James Wallace. "With their past picks being companies like Groupon and Volusion, it's very exciting for us to be counted among companies of that caliber."
"I've read the magazine for years, so when we got word we were chosen, we felt honored," said Tim Tonella, Price Protectr's president. "We've gotten a lot of recognition, and we're proud to have accomplished so much. But this one's really special."
"Over the years, we've helped thousands of our users put hard-earned money back in their wallets," said Dave Cohen, co-founder and CTO of Price Protectr. "We're humbled by our selection and delighted at the opportunity to help even more users make the most of their money."
Wallace added, "We take great pride in delivering our money-saving service to our users. We're thankful for the selection, and for our users and fans."
