Sale Price Notification for "Saved for Later" or "In-Cart" items

Status: Tell Us More

I commonly take a long time to make a purchase of large items and utilize the "save for later" feature.  Is especially use this for items that aren't critical to everyday life (i.e. my dream home theater).   It would be amazing to get an automatic notification when one of my "watched" items goes on sale because it might put me over the edge to buy one or all of the items.

I think that used to be a feature of the web site. I  know I also commonly put large really want items in my save for later. 

 

Ying and Yang though. It could put people over the edge to purchase and it could keep people on the outside looking in waiting for the sale.  

 

Scenario: You put a $3000 TV in the save for later.  Price drops $1000.  2352 people have that TV in save for later. 1003 jump online to purchase 1 of 425 available nationwide.  528 people are fuming mad becuase they could not get the sale price and demand a rain check. 

 

From a business point of view. I would rather have customers checking the web site every day or a few times a week. to see what the price is and looking at my web site. 

 

When I purchased my Kuro TV the price was astronomical I checked the price every couple of days. One day it dropped $1700.  I purchased it immediatly online (delivery only). I got one.  a few hours later I checked again and they were sold out.
