Union City, California (EastBayDaily) — How much can people really save from shopping on Black Friday? PriceTrace.com, a free comparison shopping and deal website, answers this question by revealing the price history chart for millions of products with their daily prices in the past year, based on data from 40+ big stores such as BestBuy, Amazon.com, Macy’s, and Walmart.
“For those products which are frequently put on sale, shoppers don’t really have to rise early or fight for that parking space on Black Friday morning.” Senior Director Diana Meller at PriceTrace.com mentions: “Browsing upon a fresh off the press Radio Shack’s 2010 Black Friday ad, you can see it features a Canon PowerShot SD1300 camera at the incredible price of $129. However, as soon as one take a look the price history chart of this product on PriceTrace.com, they will find that it has had the same low price at Amazon.com twice in the past month!”
“In this case, one can use PriceTrace’s Price Drop Alert feature to set a ‘target price’ of $129 for this camera.” Diana says, “When the price drops to $129 (or lower) again, you will receive an email alert. Better yet, the order can be placed online and received at home!”
For those who are determined to go shopping on Black Friday, PriceTrace.com also offers the full set of Black Friday features such as store flyer downloads, deal search, and particularly the powerful 2010 Black Friday shopping guides, which are designed for shoppers looking for detailed product information. The shopping guides offer comparisons and product reviews for items in many categories such as HDTV, cameras, laptops, DVD players, vacuum cleaners, and many more.
Finally, PriceTrace has launched an iPhone application “LetShop”, for those who would like to use the tool on-the-go.
