Ok so let me set the scene…
You just spent the last hour in your favorite shop and left with the cutest new top and a pair of shoes too. It’s been a great day of retail therapy to say the least and you’re pretty proud of yourself for actually finding a couple of things that you absolutely can’t wait to wear. And although you would have much rather spent less, you’re ok with it since you never ever find anything that fits this perfectly. You’re gleaming. A couple of weeks later you’re out to lunch with your best friend and she’s wearing the same top. She can’t stop raving about what a great deal she got on it. You’re like…waaait….whaaat? Turns out she got it about one week later after you and for about 20 dollars less than what you paid. And since it’s past the store’s price adjustment period (most retailers usually set this to 14 days), it’s too late now to get the price difference back. So annoying, right?
Well you’re not alone. Here are some facts. Did you know that 1 in 3 items goes on sale within 30 days of purchase or less and that consumers in the U.S. missed out on over 20 billion dollars last year? Yes, you read it right…that’s BILLIONS worth of price adjustments. Just think about how often this probably happens to you without you even knowing it. What a bummer.
Well just the other day I discovered an app that I just have to share. It totally has your back. It’s called “Eyeona” as in “I’ve got my eye on a watch…a computer…etc, etc.” This is a must have, in my opinion, mobile shopping app. Eyeona has partnered with many major brands and helps you get back and save money on all your shopping purchases…past and future. In a nutshell, Eyeona tracks price changes and alerts you to price adjustments after you purchase & helps you save money on future purchases.
I know, awesome. And what perfect timing, mommas…with back to school shopping in full swing, you need this app to help you save and get the best deals.
