Reasons Why A Price Drop Alert Tool Offers You Peace Of Mind

Using a lowest price checker is all very well if the lowest price that you find on the item you
want happens to fall within your budget. But what if it doesn’t? There are obviously going to
be situations where the purchasing of an item becomes time critical. But for the most part
there’s no need to act so hurriedly.

Using a price drop alert tool enables you to monitor the item that you want in a more
passive way. This frees up your time to focus on the things in your life that matter to you.


An Increasingly Concerned Conscience


With the state of the world’s climate rapidly reaching the point of no return, shoppers are
trying to purchase more ethically or sustainably. What does that actually mean in practice,
however? Well, often it means going for second hand products as opposed to brand new
ones (reuse being one of the three Rs, of course; reduce, reuse and recycle).

With the advent of things like Facebook Marketplace, for example, people are increasingly
going for the well-loved option. Slightly damaged goods, returns and trade-ins are
everywhere. Like a car’s value depreciates as soon as it leaves the factory, so too will these
goods’ value. By placing a price drop alert on it, you’ll be able to get what you want on your
financial terms. Generally, though, the more patient you are the better value you’ll get.


Fashion Seasons Come And Go, But Value’s Here To Stay.


Why should some high-brow designer in their ivory tower dictate how you get to dress? Just
because it’s no longer one of the season’s hottest trends doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for
it. Shoes are especially prone to large discounts once they fall out of season. Using a price
drop alert tool means you’ll be able to find the best discounted shoes online.

The resurgence of vintage clothing often ties in with second-hand or discount prices through
the very nature of its age. Finding the best deals on vintage clothing is almost as time
consuming as sorting through a vintage kilo sale! You can cut this out by simply biding your
time and using a price drop alert tool, rather than compromising on the item you end up
purchasing!


The Price I Want To Pay, You Say?

Saving Money on Your Holiday Essentials

Are you jetting off this summer for the holiday of a lifetime? When you have spent thousands on the hotel, flights and transfers, you’re going to want to save a few pounds on all the holiday extras: bikinis, sun cream and suitcases.

At PiWoP, the creators of a revolutionary price alert service, our money saving experts have provided 5 ways you can save money before you go on holiday:

1. Save shopping spree until you’re abroad.

If you’re a fan of clothing and beauty brands such as Zara, Armani and L’Oreal, how about waiting to purchase your holiday wardrobe until you visit their native countries?

For example, if you’re travelling to Spain this year, you can buy from high street favourites, Zara and Mango for a fraction of the price in the UK. Similarly, if you’re a huge fan of luxury, designer brands, you want to head to Italy where there are massive discounts on big brands such as Armani.

2. Avoid buying travel-sized toiletries.

You only have to pop into any health and beauty store before holiday season and you will find a vast array of “convenient” travel-sized products. However, when you compare their prices with the full-sized versions, you will discover they are incredibly overpriced for the amount of product you are getting. In fact, some cost 500% more per 100ml!

Instead of splashing out on overpriced toiletries, decante your existing products into plastic travel posts or try collecting some free samples before you go.

3. Take your own food on the flight.

On average, a round of sandwiches and soft drinks for the typical family of four costs at least £25 when onboard a plane. Therefore, it’s better and cheaper to bring your own picnic with you. Obviously, you won’t be able to take the liquids through security so buy them in the departure lounge or fill empty water bottles with drinking water if the airport provides it!

4. Compare your holiday essentials on price tracking websites.

Whether you’re putting together your holiday wardrobe or looking to buy the correct-sized suitcase, these essentials can increase your overall holiday total. When using price drop alert tools, you can keep an eye on the price of your holiday extras.

PiWoP’s price drop alert tool allows you to create lists for things like your holiday essentials, find items you need online, set the specific prices you want to pay for them and you’ll be alerted once those items drop to your set prices, or below. You can then purchase them and save yourself some cash!
