PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FreePriceAlerts.com, the free online tool which helps consumers track prices, follow sales and ultimately find the best deal, today announced over $10 million saved on behalf of consumers. In addition to the savings, the company announced that the site has facilitated over 1 million transactions, and has evaluated over $500 million worth of products.
FreePriceAlerts' browser tool searches tens of thousands of retail sites (with new sites being added each day) to notify consumers instantly of the lowest price for any consumer good on the web. And unlike shopping sites, FreePriceAlerts doesn't require shoppers to shop any differently than they normally would. With FreePriceAlerts, if there's a lower price, the consumer will get a pop-up alert right then and there—no hopping back and forth between sites, no extra steps.
In addition, FreePriceAlerts allows shoppers to:
- Create wish lists that prompt the service to continuously search for best prices
- Set target prices (how much a consumer is willing to pay for a particular item) and get alerts when that price becomes available
- Access Price Alert email notifications, price histories, and integrated checkout
FreePriceAlerts.com is compatible with Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari. The company now offers a mobile application as well, allowing consumers to find the best deals on the go. Both the browser tool and the mobile application are available for free download at www.FreePriceAlerts.com.
"FreePriceAlerts' groundbreaking technology uses cloud-based servers to seek out, store and track price fluctuations and trends without interfering with a consumer's online shopping," explained FreePriceAlerts founder Robert Wilkins. "Our numbers speak for themselves. FreePriceAlerts does for consumer products what travel sites have done for plane tickets. There's simply no excuse to pay high prices anymore."
