We are ex-Amazonians who love building fun buying experiences. We built Price Tempter to save people money by letting you know when a product you want has a great price and we want that to be as easy as possible for you.
Working at Amazon, we discovered a secret that not many people think about. Online shopping is tailored to 'Buy Now' — and often that is exactly what you want. However, frequently there are products you don’t need right away or aren’t quite ready to buy. With a little patience, you can save a lot of money on those purchases.
Millions of price adjustments happen every day on Amazon.com. For example, Walmart launches a sale and Amazon decides to price match. Another retailer wants to clear out an end-of-life product, but others retailers don't know that so it triggers a price decline and sometimes even price spirals. A vendor funds a promotion with one retailer and other retailers follow suit. A sudden spike in demand for a product causes retailers to raise prices to preserve inventory. Most of these adjustments happen using automated systems to react in seconds as conditions change. Like airline prices, online prices fluctuate like crazy and saving money is all about timing.
With these insights, we set out to build Price Tempter, a simple personal shopping assistant. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to find lists of items that interest you, track your Amazon lists, and let you know when a product price makes it a great time to buy. Buying at the right time could save you hundreds of dollars every year.
We hope you love the service. We love feedback from our customers about your shopping experiences, how we’re doing, and what we can do to serve you better. Contact [email protected], message us on Facebook, or submit feedback at the bottom of any page on our site (if you're logged in).
