I shop almost exclusively online.
For good reason too.
First, I save money in gas and reduce my “impulse” buys because I generally only buy exactly what I am looking for, and second, I save SO MUCH TIME. My kids and I went to the store yesterday for a few small gifts and it took over 3 hours. At a single store. There is just too much visual and emotional stimulation when you go to the store. So many distractions.
I prefer to shop without having to put on shoes!
But one thing that I have found is that shopping online brings it’s own share of stress. Trying to keep track of everything you ordered. We have cold temps and snow here and I don’t want my packages sitting on my porch for too long. I also want to make sure that I intercept all the packages so my kids or husband don’t discover their gifts. Making sure the packages arrive on time. No one wants to have to tell a child that their gift is arriving AFTER Christmas.
But a new app called Slice helps take some of that stress away, and offers additional great features as well!
Slice is a free app that pulls together all the purchase and shipping information from your email inbox into once place so you can:
- Track all your shipments
- Stay organized and on budget
- Get Price Drop Alerts: Price Drop Alerts send you a notification when an item you have purchased has recently dropped in price and you are eligible to recoup the difference. Once you receive a price drop alert, the app guides you through the steps you need to take in order to get your money back.
- Track With Friends (perfect for holiday gift giving!): If you’re mailing a gift, you can send customized notifications to recipients—plus or minus the details of what’s inside, so you don’t have to ruin the surprise.
- Get Product Recall Alerts (a must-have for parents!): The app will send you an alert if a product you’ve purchased is recalled. This is particularly useful for parents because it’s hard to keep up-to-date on recalls and they certainly wouldn’t want to continue to use faulty baby products or something that could be potentially harmful to their child. Also, they’ll never miss an opportunity to get their money back.
- Make returns easy
How cool is that?
