Save Money? Yes Please!

Part of what we imagined robots and computers would do for us in the future was boring, repetitive tasks. Like checking back to see if something you purchased had been marked down after you bought it. That little piece of the future is now. Price Protectr (no, that’s not misspelled!) will keep an eye on items you register with them and e-mail you if and when the price drops. We’ve used it twice. The first time no luck, but yesterday we bought the second Fraser & Hass CD ”In The Moment” on Amazon. We then registered it online with Price Protectr. Last night we got an e-mail from Price Protectr saying the CD had been marked down by $1.99. We contacted Amazon and today they let us know they were refunding us the $1.99! Easy peasy!

Price Protectr watches 78 stores at this point and each store has its own price protection policy. But Price Protectr is free, simple to use and definitely worth a try!

Hi DMM -
We're looking forward to listening to the new CD - especially after your positive review!
And to have saved $1.99 with hardly any effort, that's a bonus!
