Happybuy is a web-app that saves its users money by tracking the retail prices of millions of products online and offering customized recommendations on the best possible time to buy. From digital cameras to netbooks, vacations in Italy to designer watches, people can use happybuy to track the price of virtually any product that has ever been sold online.
What are you looking for? If you can answer that question, then you can get started using happybuy. Just type in the name of the product you’d like – feeling free to be as specific or generic as you want – and let happybuy search for the item online. If you’ve been hesitating to buy a Macbook Air or a Nikon camera because you’re worried that prices will come down soon, for example, then you can use happybuy to help guide your decision on when to buy. In an instant, happybuy will let you see the pricing history for the products you want and give you a thumbs up or thumbs down rating that indicates whether it’s best to buy now or hold off until later. If happybuy recommends you buy now, the web-app will offer up a link to the cheapest place to buy the product on the web. In times when happybuy recommends waiting for the price to drop further, you can enter your email address to receive immediate notice whenever the price does eventually go down.
Happybuy’s recommendations are based on its PricePredict pricing analysis algorithm, which analyses historical, seasonal, and categorical pricing data to determine future pricing events. This information is then used to help happybuy make its customized recommendations. For times when you don’t mind waiting a couple extra days or weeks to purchase an item if it means saving a couple dollars in the process, happybuy is an excellent tool to use.
