“Original Nintendo Rocks!!”

While watching TV last night the new Playstation 3 commercial came on. The first thing I said to my myself was, “wow that was a cool commercial”. At the end it said that the console is now starting at $399.00. Now I realize that “starting at” means that it’s without all the features and memory space everyone wants but, $399.00?! I thought for sure the price of the Playstation 3 wouldn’t budge from its original $699.00 price for years. This cut was just in time for the holiday season I suppose, but needless to say I was definitely surprised. Though, I have to admit I’m an original Nintendo lover at heart.

Well, if you’re anything like me, you’re often are surprised at things like this and wish there were an easier way to find product sales as soon as they hit stores. Fortunately, Chitika has a neat little feature called Price Alerts. This cool feature will send a text message right to your mobile phone (or your email inbox) when a product you are interested in is available for the price you want to buy it. 

Set a Price Alert Search for a product at, click on the product listing then click “Set Price Alert”.

I’m curious to hear how this works for you, please share your experience when you get your first alert!
