How often have you postponed buying something because you have heard that the price is expected to drop? It does happen once in a while, but more often than not the price remains the same no matter how long you wait and in the worst case scenario, the price may even increase.
So what have you achieved? Usually nothing! In fact you have denied yourself the use of whatever you were waiting for. What have you lost in the meantime? If it was something work related, your have lost out on efficiency or productivity. It could even mean you lost out on a customer because you did not have the equipment you need to accept the order. If it was something personal like a music system, or a TV, you have lost the pleasure it would have provided you for the time you were waiting.
Okay, so no one wants to waste money and why spend now if there is even a small possibility of pricing dropping soon. Many companies are helping people to overcome this problem by a policy of price protection.
Price protection is an extension of what is called “price matching.” You must have come across price matching. That’s where a seller promises you that if you can find the same product he is offering at a cheaper price from another supplier, he will immediately match that lower price. Price protection is where companies commit that if the prices of their products drop within a fixed time after you have bought them, they will refund the price difference to you. While the price protection period varies from company to company and product to product, it is usually valid for at least one month from the date of purchase.
But how do you keep track of the possible price drops in the things you buy? You can’t keep checking with the store or visiting the manufacturers’ website. And even if you do, you could still overlook something that could save you money – maybe hundreds of dollars or more, depending on what you bought.
There is a new website that offers you a simple way to keep track of this. Trackle.com is a site that enables you to set up tracklets for tracking the price movement of things you have bought. Once you set up the tracklet for price protection for a specific product, you will be notified as soon as there is any change. That’s it. Nothing more to do. Sit back and forget about worry about whether prices have come down. Trackle.com’s price protection tracklets will keep track of it for you.
Trackle.com’s price protection tracklets are easy to set up and anyone can do it. You can now forget about waiting for prices to drop. As long as the manufacturer has a price protection policy (and more and more are getting into it), you can buy without fear of not having waited and perhaps saving money.
Visit Trackle.com and set a price protection tracklet and see how easy it is. And besides price protection there are many other tracklets you can set up to keep you informed of just about any developments and news on the web.
