Poach It!

March 21, 2013 in I Adore What I Love
I love to online shop. Love it. And few months ago I found out about this new “service” – I guess you could call it –  that makes your online shopping experience easier if you’re on a budget.  It’s called Poach It and basically, you sign up, add the “POACH it” button to your bookmarks toolbar (which btw, is really easy to do) and when you’re shopping online and see that cute (but way too expensive) oversized bag, you poach it. Now, you’re probably thinking “What the heck are you talking about Dana???” but let me explain a little further… Poaching a product (such as that way too expensive but have-to-have oversized bag) enables you to get alerts via email when the price drops of whatever you’ve been eying (you can literally poach ANYTHING from ANY online site – shoes, shirts, makeup, furniture, etc). In addition to that, the Poach It people will also save you even more money and time by giving you any available working coupons to use immediately when buying that have-to-have (and now less expensive) really cute oversized bag online. That means, no more searching for coupon codes either since they hand them right to you upon your purchase!It’s a win-win.

The reason I’m sharing this with you now? When I originally signed up, I tried it out when I saw a really freaking hot dress that I found online at Bloomies.  I mean, I absolutely died for it but it was way too expensive… so I decided to poach it.  Since then, I have literally forgotten about this ultra-useful service and have yet to utilize it again.  Fast forward to yesterday when I woke up, checked my emails and saw one with the subject line: “Your Poach Alert”. I honestly had no clue what that meant until I opened the email and boom! That really-freaking-hot-dress-I-saw-from-Bloomies-that-I-haven’t-thought-about-once-because-it-was-way-too-expensive, is finally on sale! And better yet, it’s in my price range! And even better still, I would have never known if it wasn’t for Poach It!

I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about this fab service again anytime soon.  In fact, I think the term poach it will become my newest favorite vocabulary phrase.
