Sites That Sniff Out Low Prices

Choosing Clothes

Being good with money doesn’t mean you never shop—it means you shop like a fox.

Here, two sites that can help you look fine without paying full price.

  • Lyst is the future of online shopping. Search clothes, shoes, and accessories from all over the Web, or browse through a selection of pieces curated by the designers and bloggers you love. When you find a winner, add it to your lyst and move on with your day. (You can even link your Pinterest account to automatically import items you’ve had your eye on.) Then, get set to save!

    When any of the products you’ve lysted (or pinned) go on sale, you’ll get an instant email notification. No sweat. (Which is good, because it’s really hot out.)

  • Shopstyle is less high-tech curator and more one-stop shopping destination. Rather than providing a custom feed for your browsing pleasure, the site makes it easy to search for the perfect piece among hundreds of brands and online retailers. Shopstyle can also help you save.
  • When you find those dream jeans, click on “Sale Alert” to be notified when the object of your retail lust enters an acceptable price range. Then go back to working on your novel/budget/business plan.

Out of the Box
To price-stalk more than clothing, drop an item’s URL into ShoppingNotes and you’ll get an alert when the price changes. On Amazon, try The Tracktor or CamelCamelCamel.


Don’t miss it. How do you sniff out great sale prices?
