I’m taking a break from regular programming today (Mission: Appliances), to announce a great new site, called DEAL Chasr. The reason I’m taking time to announce this new website is because (shameless plug alert) it’s my husband’s! He is not only a lover of deals, but is also an expert computer whiz. To summarize its function in a sentence, DEAL Chasr was born out of a desire to identify and capitalize on price drops on Amazon.com.
Amazon.com is an Internet shopper’s dream: it sells pretty much everything, boasts low prices, and offers an option for free shipping on most orders. However, if you’ve spent any time on Amazon, it won’t take you very long to notice that prices change constantly. DEAL Chasr chases down significant price drops as soon as they happen, allowing frugal shoppers (like us!) to cash in on some great deals.
Case in point, last week I was shopping for a birthday present for my brother. Even though DEAL Chasr wasn’t live yet, my husband and I were still monitoring it as we were making some final changes (I helped with design). I noticed that one of my brother’s favorite TV shows, Nip/Tuck, was being identified as an “amazing deal” by DEAL Chasr. The price was now listed at $23.99 and it had previously been listed (for some time) at $48.99. I capitalized and bought him Season 3. Brother, if you are reading this, I hope you liked your gift!
To say the least, I’m very excited about this new site! If you’d like to learn more about it, there is a helpful FAQ. Be sure to stop by frequently because deals change constantly. There’s also a handy option to subscribe via feed.
Happy deal searching! 🙂
