    "Price Patrol"

    It feels so good finding deals that helps you save money in products you already wanted to purchase. However, deal hunting is often exhausting and time-consuming. Price Patrol wants to offload you from that dirty job. Download the app, set it up and relax. Deal notifications will be pushed to your smartphone/tablet.

    Price Patrol tracks an inventory of 20 million products from over 120,000 retail locations, including Best Buy, Walmart, Nike, Toys "R" Us, Costco and many others.

    Searches in Price Patrol cross three parameters: product, location and price. Thus, you won't be spammed randomly with deals around like many other deals app do. Price Patrol only pushes deals for those products saved in your "radar" (your wishlist), at your ideal price and available in nearby retailers. Otherwise you won't be disturbed.

    This can make you find deals in local stores at a similar price of other Internet retailers but saving shipping costs and return issues.

    The premise behind Price Patrol is powerful. However, it should include more options to filter products, set notifications and share found deals. In addition, it'd be nice if it had better support in countries beyond the US.
