Easy Extra Money Idea of the Day:
Everyone hates buying an item and then seeing it go on sale the next day. The good news is that many of the big retailers will offer to credit you the difference…the bad news is that it’s up to you to stay on top of the item’s price and notify the retailer. This can be a time consuming and tedious process but the Windfall app can help you!
Currently Windfall supports: Target, Walmart, ToysRUs, BabiesRUs, Staples, Best Buy, The Home Deport, and Lowe’s. Utilizing the Windfall app is simple: After making a purchase, use the app to take a picture of your receipt and remember to hold on to the receipt! The app will break out each item and begin a search to check for a lower price from that retailer over the next couple of days/weeks. Keep in mind that every company has a different time period for a price match but Windfall keeps track of this for you. If it’s able to locate a price drop for one of more of your items, you will be notified and can claim the price difference by bringing your original receipt to customer service (some retailers may allow you to claim online as well).
Windfall is a free app available on Apple iOS devices
