Locate a Sale…. From Anywhere!

When the Valhalla, New York-based father-and-son team of Michael and Udi Falkson came up with the idea for their amazing site, SaleLocator.com, they felt there simply wasn’t one place to find the type of sales you would have to wait to see in a Sunday paper circular. Thus, SaleLocator.com was born.

“Instead of visiting hundreds of retailer sites or scouring newspaper ads, circulars, direct mail,” says Michael Falkson, “shoppers can visit one resource, SaleLocator, online or via a mobile app, that brings this information together in one location.”

The site lists more than 275,000 retail and online sales per day for about 1,000 stores, many big-box and chain retailers. It’s extremely simple: The site detects where you are geographically (or you can search in other locations). Then users can shop by category or even search for something specific. You never know what will be on sale.

You’re probably wondering how they are able to get all this information. An Internet veteran, Udi Falkson helped develop Yahoo! Answers, so the Falkson’s site use a special computer program that communicates with retailers. But Michael Falkson also says some dedicated human research is involved.

As more big-box stores open in New York City (whether you are for or against it), SaleLocator.com can help you find deals at all of them. But, according to Falkson, they also show sales at smaller stores (Godiva, for one), even supermarkets and drugstores. And you can organize your shopping by saving searches, setting up alerts and making lists either through the app or on the site.

About bloggains

I’m a journalist who likes to live well, but will never pay full price. In this new world of the Groupon et al., how can we get a bargain on the things we actually use? That is where I come in. I’m a single girl on a budget with a penchant for fashion, good food, and travel who likes to take care of herself in the process. So, I decided to blog about the everyday ways I save money while still living pretty well. Hopefully it can help you live life fully without paying full price!
