At Honey, we’ve set out to fix what’s broken about shopping online, one problem at a time. Today, we’re thrilled to announce our team’s latest triumph: Droplist, a smart shopping list that tracks items you’re eyeing and automatically notifies you when an item’s price drops.
If you’ve ever hesitated to buy something online because it might go on sale—or waited patiently for a sale but wondered if it was, indeed, worth the wait—you already know, intuitively, why we built Droplist. As shoppers, we’ve become accustomed to a predictable cycle of retail sales (think Black Friday or Cyber Monday). But in the new age of always-on e-commerce, sales aren't just seasonal anymore. Thanks to new testing and targeting tools, merchants can now drop prices hour to hour, even minute to minute.
The good news: There’s more deals to be had!
The bad: With consumers in the dark, we can never be certain when the deals are coming. So we built a way to band together as shoppers to share helpful, historical pricing information that empowers everyone.
Here’s how Droplist works:
Add an item to your list, and Honey will send you an email when the price drops. No time to wait? Check the item’s Price History to see when (and by how much) the price has risen or fallen in the past, so you know if that deal is actually a deal. The goal: to better inform you, so that every online purchase is a smart online purchase.
For now, Droplist and Price History will be available for anything sold on Amazon, Macy’s, Overstock, Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, QVC, Loft, Saks and J.Crew. We’ll be doubling our Droplist brands by end of year, and the depth and breadth of Price History on these stores will only get better over time.
Here’s how it works, step by step:
Step 2: Click the "Add to Droplist" button near the product and pricing info, and decide whether you want to keep an eye on it for 30, 60 or 90 days.
Step 3: You’re all set. We'll email you and put a notification in your Honey Feed when the price drops. You can also easily see the original and sale prices for everything you're watching on your personal Droplist page.
Step 4: Add more items. You can track as many items as you'd like on any site where Droplist is available. (And remember, more sites coming soon!).
Step 5: Relax. You can buy with confidence when the the time is right, knowing you’re getting the best value possible.
