About PRICE ALERT - How we can help you save money!

Some of the stores on PennyPinch


At Price Alert we love to shop, but we also love saving money. So we set out with the mission of developing a website which will help to make shopping for a bargain as simple as possible.

The aim of Price Alert is not to encourage you to buy cheap products. Let's face it, we've all made impulse purchases on the spare of the moment that we don't really want or need, just because it seems like a good deal. These often end up at the back of the wardrobe (still with the tags on), up in the attic, or given to somebody else as not so thoughtful gifts. The aim of Price Alert is simply to help you buy the products you want, from the brands and stores you love, at the best possible price.

Price History Graph



 The price of products can vary on a daily basis, so it can be extremely difficult to know if the product you want to buy is a good price or not. So we monitor and track the prices of over a million products from stores throughout the UK, including top retailers such as John Lewis, Debenhams, Marks and Spencer, Amazon, Laura Ashley and Currys.

To create a price alert for an item you are interested in, click the Alert button. You can then choose whether to be notified whenever the price drops, or enter a target price to be alerted only if the price drops to or below this target.

Don't you just hate it when you hear about a great deal, only to find out the item is out of stock when you go to buy? We do too! That is why we also monitor stock levels whenever possible, so we only highlight deals and offers which are actually available for you to buy.
