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

Status: Tell Us More
by on ‎06-06-2018 02:52 PM

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 believe this idea has been posted in the past, but that was a while ago. Would anyone else like to see this feature added to our website? Make sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

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.

Hi, I contacted a online rep asking for a price match with Microcentre ({removed per forum guidelines}).

Asusual, price match was denied saying that the item is "limited 1 per household" and "in store only" - well I understand it is in the price match policy saying for limited quantity(secified below);

What if the competitor does not have the item in stock or has limited quantities of the product?

Sometimes a qualifying competitor will advertise a product in ads and on its website as having limited quantities in stock. If the item is out of stock or the competitor has advertised as limited quantities of an item, it is not eligible for price matching. Likewise, if Best Buy has a product that is advertised as being limited in quantity it will not be eligible for price matching.


But unable to find in the policy as "In store only" item will not be price matched. 

The online rep was unable to answer when I asked the same.

It would be great if Best Buy could send out an alert when the price drops on something I purchased during my adjustment period.  I try to remember to go back and check for 30 days after I make a purchase, but an automatic reminder would be nice.

I like the idea myself. However, from from a business point of view it is a very bad idea.  Literally your asking a company to give away profits. 


If the customer wants the price adjustment they should need to do the work of watching the price themselves.

I think notification would be a great feature not only when an item you have saved goes on sale but also when possibly when it is back in stock, for out of stock items.  I get calls all the time and customers would like that feature, like an email or text that they would have to opt in for?  I think this would increase our sales most definitely
