Making the Most of Your Watch List

The watch list is a powerful tool on most online shopping sites, but 4Sale4Now.com takes the power of the watch list to the next level.

The Load and Cull Method

Try the “Load and Cull Method” for your watch list. Surf 4Sale4Now.com and add anything and everything you like to your watch list.

After adding a lot of items, go to your watch list and start culling out duplicate items. Maybe you added an mp3 player to your watch list and then came across another one that you liked better. In your watch list, you can cull out the one you like less and keep tabs on the one you liked better.

This is a really fast an efficient way to shop at 4Sale4Now.com. You don’t spend a lot of time comparing the items when they’re listed with hundreds of other items in our categories. Instead, you make an “at a glance” decision and really weigh which item is better when you’ve isolated the items into your watch list.

3 Ways to Track Watch List Items

4Sale4Now.com has three ways to keep tabs on items you have in your watch list. You can choose the method that’s most appropriate for your situation, or you can use all three methods to keep track of price drops on you watch list.


If you work at your computer most of the day, email tracking might be the best option for you.

I have my email software set to download every 10 minutes. If an item in my watch list drops in price, and email is sent and arrives in my inbox within a 10 minute window. I can click the link on that email, go directly to the item, and buy it before it sells out at the new price level.

Text Message

If you’re on the move a lot during the day, you might need to use text messaging to keep track of your watch list. If an item you’ve been tracking drops into your price range, an SMS text message will be sent to your phone. You can then hop on 4Sale4Now and purchase it at your next opportunity.

Really Simple Syndication (RSS)

If you have a feed reader like Google Reader or NewsGator, chances are you read through your news first thing in the morning. Make sure you also get news about price drops on items on your watch list by subscribing to your watch list’s RSS feed. A brief price update will appear in your feed reader allowing you to click through to the product and snap it up before it disappears.

A lot of shoppers don’t take advantage of the watch list. Consequently, they miss price drops only to find that someone else had been following the same item on their watch list and bought the item the moment it dropped into their price range. Don’t make the same mistake. Put the power of your watch list to work for you.
