[prMac.com] San Mateo, California - BuyVia, the first website and mobile app that combines in-store and online shopping across smartphones, tablets and laptops, has released a new Personal Shopping App for the iPhone, Personal Shopper 4.0.
"We specifically created this App for busy shoppers who want good deals, but don't necessarily have the time or inclination to be tracking down coupons, monitoring prices changes, or comparison shop around," said Norman Fong, CEO of BuyVia. "Not only will our in-house experts be helping their search for bargains, but we are also opening it up to users. They get into the fun of meeting this challenge, and the incentive of earning points and prizes for helping other users score a deal!"
Users who are seeking a bargain will be able to enter what type of product they are seeking and how much they are willing to pay, i.e. a back-to-school laptop for under $500, as well as optional specific details about the product - make, model, etc. Once an account is established to save this "challenge," the user will receive an email when either the BuyVia Shopping Expert Team or a fellow user finds a deal that meets the criteria. Only reliable stores and well reviewed products will be considered. Users who assist in finding deals for others will accrue points, which can be turned in for prizes, such as movie tickets, tablets, or other high tech gadgets.
"To our knowledge, this App is the first of its kind, letting users name the product and price they want instead of sales being pushed out to them," added Fong. "We are positioning this as a Concierge service for consumers, and for that reason, it will be a perfect fit in the newly launched 'Shopping' category in the App store."
The Personal Shopping App joins BuyVia's Suite of 8 Mobile Apps, including the main BuyVia App, the Barcode Scanning App, the Coupons App, the new Food Coupons App, the Black Friday 2015 App, the 2015 Cyber Monday App and the new Clothing Shopping App and Tech Deals App.
