Slice Drops automatically detects when something you’ve bought goes on sale and gets you a refund with the push of a button

SAN MATEO, Calif. – December 6, 2016 – Slice, the free mobile and online app indispensable to smart online shoppers, today released Slice Drops, a new app that enables users to receive refunds when items they’ve bought go on sale. Slice Drops takes the popular price drops feature from Slice to the next level, with more supported merchants and more ways to save in one powerful app, just in time for the holiday shopping season.

“People love the experience of getting an e-mail that says they have money coming to them, whether it’s tens or hundreds of dollars, and we wanted to create even more opportunities to deliver that kind of happiness,” said Harpinder Singh, CEO, Slice.

Online retailer price protection is often thought of as a cumbersome, difficult task, with countless steps to complete and too much time wasted. Slice Drops rids you of the obsessive-compulsive deal-watching and logistical grunt-work, making it easier than ever to capture savings. The app delivers a slew of new and improved features including:

  • Support of more than 35 merchants: In addition to the current list of supported merchants including Macy’s, Best Buy, J. Crew, and Pottery Barn, Slice Dropsalso delivers refunds from new retailers:  Gap, Old Navy, Athleta, Wal-Mart, and Banana Republic.
  • Automatic-request merchants: Slice Drops will automatically request price drops from Nordstrom, REI, and Anthropologie, with more being constantly added.
  • Tracking and counter screens:With its new tracking screen, shoppers will know exactly what’s been purchased that is currently eligible and that Slice Drops is tracking. Additionally, the new counter displays total cumulative savings.
  • Amazon price protection: Slice Drops is the only service to offer Amazon price protection. At launch, Slice Drops will give up to $20 cash back against Amazon price changes this holiday season.

“It seems that every day there is another big sale—it’s not just about Black Friday and Cyber Monday anymore, so there’s a high likelihood that you might buy something today that goes on sale later,” commented Singh. “With Slice Drops, shoppers can be assured that they’ll get the best price, and maybe some extra jingle in their pockets this holiday shopping season.”

Slice Drops is free, and available for both iOS and Android beginning today.  Download in either the App Store or Google Play. For more information, please visit https://www.slice.com/slice-drops.
