Holiday Gifts for Less
I can hardly believe that Christmas is next month. To be completely honest, I haven’t really started shopping yet. I was so preoccupied planning our big family vacation, and now that it’s over, Christmas is staring me in the face.

PricePatrol App Logo


When it comes to holiday shopping, I am definitely a bargain hunter. I shop sales and will start watching for good deals on toys that my kids really want. To get the most for my money, I’ve installed PricePatrol. It’s an app available for iOS and Android users that actually lets you search locally for items, set a price and then alerts you when it comes up with a match within a certain distance that you set. The app works wherever you are and alerts you instantly when a price drops.




More about PricePatrol from their website:
PricePatrol is a one stop shopping discovery and price alert web and mobile application that does all the hard work of deal searching for you.

We constantly scan a growing number of over 20 Million items at over 120,000 retail locations finding the best prices on the items you want!


I decided to give PricePatrol a try and downloaded the app to my phone. Then, I started collecting Christmas lists. My 9 year old has a Nintendo 3DS on his list. I’ve been pricing these out anywhere from $150-170. It’s a little more than I would like to spend. I searched for the product on the PricePatrol App. It came up with a few different options and I know he would like the Aqua color. I selected the category as Toys & Games, gave it a search radius of under 10 miles and set my max price as <$180. You can see my parameters for the product below.

I set the max price a little higher because I wanted to see where it was offered around me. As you can see, there are 2 different products just a mile away from me. If I actually click on one of the items, it pulls up information on the item, the address and store of where it’s at and allows me to get directions, call the store or buy it now. Pretty handy, right? I saved the search to my radar and will let PricePatrol do the rest. By setting up push notifications, I will get an alert when the price on this item drops. There are also options to share on social networks which can be handy if you know someone also looking for a great deal on the same item.

You can edit radar items, assign a category, and deleting from your list is also easy. Overall, I think it’s a great app for those looking for deals on holiday items. We have a budgeted amount for Christmas, so if I can spend less, I can get more items for everyone on my list.

    What an awesome app! I’m on the hunt for chromebooks for the girls for Christmas and this will save me some serious ad stalking time.

    I also set the max value somewhat high on the grounds that I needed to see where it was offered around me. As should be obvious, there two separator items simply a mile far from me. In the event that I really click on one of the things. It pulls up data on the thing. The location and sore of where its at and permits me to get bearings, call the store or purchase it now.

    Oh wow! This is going to come in handy this year as we have a couple of really big ticket items on both of our daughters lists. We don’t check papers for sale prices and looking things up online can be horribly time consuming, so this is really useful and practical for us! I’m off to download the app!

    I have done some Christmas shopping but I am nowhere near being finished. I had hoped to be completely done before Thanksgiving, but that’s not likely to happen at this point. I have personally been wanting an iPad, so I will be downloading this app to watch for the best price! It will also come in handy when looking for gifts for my kids.
