Digital Folio Adds Lowe's and Home Depot Appliance Data!

Lowe's and Home Depot Trying to find the best prices for big-ticket items such as appliances can be nerve-wracking, especially with volatile price changes and hard-to-discover cart/checkout prices. The stale prices often provided by shopping search engines such as Google Shopping, NexTag, and PriceGrabber (and the fact that Google Shopping no longer includes Amazon pricing) make shopping for a new microwave, dishwasher, or other appliance all the more daunting.

Enter Digital Folio, which now includes appliance prices from Lowe's and Home Depot as well as other major appliance retailers including Amazon, Sears, and Best Buy! With a single search at http://cartbound.com/products you can now learn which top retailers offer the best prices on the appliance you need!

As always, please feel free to let us know what you think about Digital Folio, and what other retailers or product categories you'd like to see added.

70+% of Appliance Price Changes Hidden behind Add-to-Cart/Checkout

Hidden Checkout and Cart PricesDigital Folio provides a valuable time-saving service to shoppers via its unique Price Compare feature's ability to instantly reveal cart/checkout prices on many products, including appliances!

As shown in the following chart, Best Buy and Sears are just two retailers that often hide product prices until shoppers add items to an online cart or, in many cases, proceed all the way to checkout.

By opening your Digital Folio sidebar, however, you can see current prices for products—even for big-ticket items such as appliances—on these and other sites without a single additional click.

Price Compare automatically kicks in when your browser is open to a listing page or single product page featuring products covered by Digital Folio on top retailer sites such as Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowe's, Newegg, Sears, Target, TigerDirect, even Toys "R" Us.

Also, anyone on any browser can view prices across multiple retailers instantly simply by visiting www.cartbound.com/products and conducting a quick search. Digital Folio automatically generates a product page such as this one for a Samsung stainless-steel French door refrigerator that reveals cart pricing for Best Buy as well as prices at competitors including Sears, Home Depot, and others. Shipping costs and a revealing price history chart are also displayed.
