How Low Can You Go?
A website that tracks major price drops
In the world of never paying full price, there are gals who get great deals ($2 off a smoothie!) and gals who get great deals (a $700 jacket for $57).
Here to cater to that second camp is Biggest Price Drop, a new website that sorts sale items by how much they’ve recently lowered in price.
Biggest Price Drop currently tracks 54 online retailers--from Anthropologie to Saks Fifth Avenue to Club Monaco--and tells you each day which items are at their cheapest. For instance, we recently logged on and found a darling BCBG sweater down from $128 to $55 (57 percent off), an Alexander McQueen necklace down from $380 to $190 (44 percent off) and a fabulous pair of Ferragamo flats that had dropped from $495 to $248 (50 percent off)--and yes, they were available in our size.
You’ll only find stuff that’s significantly discounted, and the selection is way better than, say, that sad and picked-over sale rack at your local department store.
Though the site is primarily devoted to fashion, it also tracks some housewares and electronics. And you can filter your searches by both store and item.
The only caveat, of course, is that you have to act fast, as sale prices shift constantly. Just ask the new owner of that $700 jacket.
