It just happened again. You finally bought the $700 flat-screen LED HDTV you had your eye on for the past two months. A weight has been lifted from your shoulders. You are starting to enjoy your wonderful TV. And then, tragedy strikes. Bam!  You hear from a friend that he just bought the TV — for $499! If you would have just waited a few more days…
There’s nothing worse than wasting money, especially when every dollar counts. We spend hours searching for the best deals, calculating our finances, and figuring out how much to spend and where, but there’s usually no way to tell if we are about to buy something that will drop in price sometime soon.


By using the Slice app, you can automatically be alerted if the price of any of your online purchases has dropped. Then, by simply talking to the merchant and asking if you can get a refund to the discounted price, you can often save a significant amount on your shopping.

 

Without Slice, you can try to predict when a price drop will occur, and wait to make your purchase. Some price drops are easier to predict, such as books or TVs. TVs tend to lose value quickly, and about 50% of TVs drop by 5% within 25 days of their release. Book prices are also easier to predict, because the paperback version will be cheaper than the hardcover.

For most of what we buy, however, there is no good way to tell when we should expect a price drop. We have to keep track of our purchases and continue to check what those items are currently going for. Doing this by hand is tedious and practically impossible if you want to have any sort of free time. Nowadays, there are helpful, efficient tools to take care of this for you, and the ~Slice app is one of them.

Slice keeps track of your online purchases, and continually checks for price reductions on those items. As soon as it finds a relevant refund, you get an alert on your iPhone, Android, or computer. You can see what you bought, from where, and how much money you might be able to save. There are now countless success stories from people who are saving hundreds of dollars with ~Slice. A Dell computer screen recently cost one user $140, but after a notification from ~Slice they ended up getting $20 back. A stove from Home Depot cost $799, until a later price reduction saved the buyer $51. Another user bought a camera from Best Buy for $199, and then the price dropped to $129. ~Slice brought this to their attention and saved them 70 bucks.

Managing our finances intelligently is difficult, and we can easily miss out on opportunities for savings. Simple tools like ~Slice lighten the load while letting us feel confident that we aren’t overpaying for online purchases.
