Decide: Right Price At The Right Time

The price of electronics are constantly changing, sometimes every day, sometimes multiple times a day. I don’t know about you, but I want to make sure I get a good price for something that I am buying. But not only that, I want to make sure that the product I am buying is of good quality and one that will last me a little while. After all, it’s always frustrating to buy a new gadget, only to see it’s outdated the next day!

For example, if I am in the market to buy an iPad and I type in “iPad” I get a variety of search results, ranging any where from the original iPad to the iPad 2 and in all the different size and color combinations.

I can click on the one that I am interested in getting and I can see a ton of information on that product. For example, I can see when it was originally released, what it’s rating is as well as the most recent reviews that people have left for the product on both Amazon and Best Buy. I can also check out the product specs to get a more in depth look at it.

Let’s say I really like the product and I am ready to go ahead and purchase it. Decide gives me a couple of options to figure out where I can purchase the product. You can either choose to look for your product online or find it at a nearby Best Buy, if it is available. As of right now you can only search Best Buy stores near you and you can also see if they are in stock or not.

Should I or Shouldn’t I?

Oh, that is the million dollar question, should you get the product now or should you wait for a new and better one coming out? Technology is constantly changing and you can just about bet that if a product does well, there will be a refresh of it some time sooner or later. One thing I hate to do or see others do is buy a product that is toward the end of its life cycle, only to find out a few days or weeks later that a newer and better one came out.

Decide understands this and has added some tools to their site to help you with your decision making process. They stay on top of the news and rumors and come up with an informed guess as to whether you should buy now or wait for a bit. They use data from the product and company that released it and share it with you so that you can see why you should wait or buy now. You can see data like the average release cycle and the last release of the product.

Not only that, but Decide is also able to show you whether the price that the current model is selling for is the best price or not. You are shown a line graph of their different prices that the product sold for and how long the current price has been holding for. Decide is then able to make a prediction on if the price will hold steady or not and how confident they are on it.

And if this isn’t all enough to help you out, and you still want to make sure you can get the best price, Decide has a tool for that as well. You can set alerts for any product so that when the price of it goes down, you will get an email letting you know. You can set the alert so it happens more or less frequently and you can also set it for a certain price threshold as well. So for example, maybe you only want to be alerted when the price goes down more than 25% of what it is now. Just set it the way you want, and Decide will, well, decide for you when it looks like the price is right.
