Back to School shopping today is a time when parents are considering high-priced items, such as a new Amazon Kindle Touch 3G, LenovoThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop, or Apple iPad tablet for their kids. And, while many retailers are offering special promotions to get parents to buy now, most people would prefer to follow their natural patterns of shopping – they see a product they might want, but can’t immediately afford, and then watch and wait until the price is right before they purchase.
The ShopAdvisor, a free app, allows busy parents to track items they are interested in for their kids by adding them to their “Watchlist.” The platform provides regular alerts anytime, anywhere thereafter to inform parents of price drops or if the price point has reached their predetermined threshold for purchase (e.g., mom is willing to pay $1,500 for a $2,200 Apple MacBook she’s been watching).
Based in the Boston area, ShopAdvisor was launched last September and has already built up a 3 million active user base from its iPhone, iPad, Android and web presence.
