Save Time and Money with Shoptagr Sale Alerts

Shoptagr sale alerts tell you when fashions you love go on sale - in your size and preferred color!

There's a new tool available to us Budget Babes that will ensure we never miss another sale: It's called Shoptagr, and it's a free and easy way to find out when items you love go on sale in your preferred size and color.

Here's how it works: With a couple clicks, install the FREE Shoptagr bookmarklet tool (kinda like the Pinterest Pin It tool). Then, whenever you're shopping online and find something you love but would really, really love if it was on sale, click the Shoptagr button in your browser and save the item to your account. When the item goes on sale, Shoptagr will notify you via email. That's it!
So let's say you're shopping all those amazing after-Christmas sales, but those pesky full-priced new arrivals keep catching your eye - like a plaid puffer vest over at J.Crew. Just click the Shoptagr button in your browser and create your sale alert. A dialogue box like this one will pop up:

J.Crew vest

Just fill in your size, preferred color and discount amount and Shoptagr does the rest.

Here's a peek at my tags so far:

I've used similar tools in the past and love the speed and ease of Shoptagr. The interface is super sleek and simple to use. I'm not super tech-savvy (my blog design is ancient in case you haven't noticed LOL) so I appreciate how easy it was to get set up.

I think Shoptagr is useful for saving money on everything from "big ticket" items - say, that special Michael Kors bag you've been eying or Kate Spade party dress - to everyday necessities like tights and tees at Target. Because really, who has time to stalk every site, every day to see when things go on sale?? Plus, with Shoptagr you'll always be the first to know...and if items are sold out, Shoptagr will alert you when they are back in stock.

Give Shoptagr a try - it's free and you can get set up within seconds! If you do, let me know what you think in the comments.

Oh my gosh, thank you for this! I used to use SavvyCircle before they closed, then Hukkster, but then THEY closed... I love these services and will install it ASAP!

Hey Lindsay!! Check the Shoptagr blog, I believe they have instructions on how to pull your items from Hukkster into your new Shoptagr account. Hope this helps!

They DO??? That's pretty amazing, since I was sad when Hukkster died, and still have the e-mail in my inbox with the links to all my items.

I also use PoachIt, but that doesn't specify by size.
