Slice is the perfect tool for people who regularly shop online. The web-based service digs into users’ email inboxes and automatically keeps tabs on all shopping-related messages that come in. With zero effort on a user’s behalf, Slice will pull order confirmations, shipping notifications, and electronic receipts to use when creating a comprehensive record of everything a person has bought, paid for, and received.
With the holiday shopping season kicking into gear, there is no better time to sign up for Slice than now. Create a new account by entering your information by hand, or sign in quickly with an existing Yahoo! or Google account. Slice will import information about all your recent purchases into its system. Scroll down the main screen page to see images of all the products you’ve recently purchased online. Below the merchant’s name you’ll find the status of the purchase: ordered, shipped, or delivered. Click the arrow next to any items that are still in-transit to see when they’ll be arriving at your doorstep, or click “Track Shipments” to visually track where your in-transit purchases are at any time. Slice will save information about all your purchases long after they’ve arrived, making it easy to find receipts and access return information without having to dig through your email archives.
One of the really useful components of Slice is the web-app’s price drop alert feature. Because Slice is automatically recording all your online purchases, it has the capability to track the prices of the items you purchased and notify you immediately when an online discount or sale qualifies you for a potential refund or price adjustment.
