Receipts, warranties, and contracts are a great asset that can provide protection in the case of a malfunctioning product or a financial loss—but they aren’t much good if you can’t keep track of the paperwork involved. If a lack of organization is preventing you from cashing in on rebates or receiving refunds for products you purchased, then Niggle It is an app that can straighten things out. The warranty and contract reminder service provides users with an easy way to store their documents digitally, ensuring that people never lose an important agreement or miss out on a return deadline ever again.
Whether you plan on using Niggle It for personal or business reasons, the app has a number of features that can work in both arenas. When you sign up for a free account, you’ll automatically be given five free “Niggles,” which is the Niggle It term for items, receipts, and contracts that are registered with the site. To add your first Niggle, type in the item name, manufacturer, model, purchase date, purchase price, and warranty length. Once your new Niggle has been saved, you can upload any scanned warranties, receipts, contracts, and manuals that go along with the item. For people who don’t have a scanner, Niggle It will also let you attach documents that have been photographed with the iPhone application. File away the original paperwork, and viola—you’re done.
If a problem should arise with the product you’ve added to Niggle, simply log onto the site to review any manuals or warranty information. The app will let you know before any warranties expire, giving you adequate time to get appliances checked out or repaired while they’re still covered by the manufacturer. For anyone who has ever misplaced an important receipt—which is pretty much everyone—Niggle It is a great application that could save its users time, money, and emotional distress.
