I’ve teamed up with WorthIt.co for this sponsored post and giveaway.
When I found out I was going to be a mom three years ago, I went into hyper planning mode. I started researching baby products and making lists. Soon I discovered that picking the right item was only half the battle; finding the best price was the other. With thousands upon thousands of products and just as many retailers selling them, it’s hard to figure out when and where to get the best deal. The creator of WorthIt.co had a similar experience while shopping for a BOB jogging stroller, and that’s why he created this free app and online price comparison platform to save people two of their most valuable resources: time and money.
There are a lot of money-saving apps out there and I’ve used quite a few of them. There’s absolutely no sense in paying full price for something when, with just a little bit of legwork, you could save a few (or many!) bucks, so I’m constantly on the look-out for the latest apps that make this job easier. After downloading WorthIt.co and trying it out, I’m loving the unique feature of naming my own price!
Here’s how WorthIt.co works: First, either download the FREE WorthIt.co app (right now, it’s available on iOS only) or use their website. Then, search their trusted list of retailers (and there are a LOT of them – like Amazon, Target, Walmart, BuyBuy Baby, Nordstrom – you know all your favorites) for products that you’re interested in purchasing. Once you’ve found the product you’re looking for, WorthIt.co will show you the best deal. You can choose to buy it, or name the price that you’re willing to pay. WorthIt.co will then continually search for your price and once they find it, they’ll send you a push notification and/or an email alert and you can decide if it’s “worth it” to you. Every email or notification is going to save you money. That’s like music to my ears!
I have a few items on my “want” list, so I started shopping around on WorthIt.co to see if I could score a great deal.
I’ve been eyeing these Frye “Jane Strappy” boots for quite some time. Although you can usually find fabulous prices on 6pm.com, I’m still not comfortable paying $239.99 for these boots (event though the retail price is $398+) since I don’t need them. I was able to tell WorthIt.co that I’d like to be notified once the boots are discounted another 20%. If and when that happens, they’ll send me a notification and I can decide if they’re worth it to me at that point. No commitments since you’re not locked into purchasing AND this is a free service – can’t beat that.
Besides shopping the retailers by list, you can “Explore” different categories of products that might be of interest to you. If you choose to follow them, they’ll be conveniently listed in your “Dashboard”. From the dashboard you can view all the items your following and edit the list at any time. There’s no limit to the amount of items you can follow. This is great if you’re shopping for a new baby and have a ton of items on your want/need list.
I really love the dashboard and how it tracks what the “best price” is for that particular item at this moment. This would be really great for price-check feature on items that you use day to day like diapers, wipes, formula, and even cleaning products.
Another great feature of WorthIt.co is that you can choose to make a secure purchase directly in the app. You can do this from your dashboard for the items you’re following or through the list of retailers as you’re browsing.
I can’t wait to see how much money WorthIt.co will save me over the next few months. We’ve got some big purchases coming up (lots of pregnant friends and birthdays) so I’m curating my list now. I love that I can use this app via my smart phone or my laptop since it makes keeping track of my dashboard so much easier.
