Holiday shopping is stressful enough, and calculating sale prices and coupons can make it even more difficult. Even worse is when a store advertises a product for one price and charges another.
Tim Conway Jr. and his co-hosts of The Cash Daddy Show recently discussed their difficulties buying holiday gifts for their loved ones. Co-host Colby Estes recalled that when trying to purchase a toy gun for his son, the retailer not only charged more than the advertised price, but would not use its price-matching service to match a competitor’s much-lower price.
Conway suggested shoppers use ShopSavvy to make sure they get the lowest price. Check out his report.
One of the most significant changes we’ve ever made to our shopping platform went live today with the launch of ShopSavvy’s new product page on iPhone.
This release provides additional product information, local store listings and photos our customers have been asking for, along with videos. It’s all simple and easy to use. We’re confident that these changes combined with the just-completed improvements to the back end of our system make ShopSavvy the best source for local and online results and product data.
You’ll notice that many products already have massive amounts of new information, and in the coming weeks and months, we will be extending this content across more and more products and categories. You won’t be able to get anything like it anywhere else – and it’s always just a finger tap away. You can download the new release here, and see some screenshots below.
I’d like to thank our iOS team, which spent more than a few sleepless weekends to get these changes to our users for the busiest holiday shopping days. Big thanks as well to the back-end team that powers our local and online results, the foundation of ShopSavvy’s brand promise to users. Lastly, thanks to the guys at Apple who made an extra effort to get all the new features in V6 out this season.
I’m excited about what this new product page is today, but I’m thrilled about the direction it will take us in the coming months. Soon our users will be able to play a much larger role in contributing content for the shopping community as part of the ShopSavvy platform and see amazing new content they can’t get anywhere else but ShopSavvy.
The transformative change coming to shopping and local commerce is just beginning, and we’re glad to be a part of it. We want your feedback on the release, so feel free to toss me an email at John@ShopSavvy.com. Meanwhile, we hope you love the new product page as much as we do.
ShopSavvy Co-Founder Rylan Barnes spent some time with WFAA’s Shannon Powell Hart to talk about the different ways shoppers can use ShopSavvy on their smartphones and their iPad to find the lowest prices online or in-store.
