Price Protectr is another great site for the consumer. It will monitor the prices of products you buy online and see if they go down (which apparently they often do).
They will then notify you and you can collect your refund. Normally, you buy a product online knowing they have a price protection policy, but it is up to you to monitor the prices and ask for a refund. Who would do that? The site monitors 33 major stores including Amazon, Best Buy, Circuit City, Costco, Future Shop, Sears and Staples. All you have to do to get the service started is enter the URL of the product you bought and wait for the good news. Of course, it is up to you at that point to go back to the online store and start the refund process; but Price Protectr does offer detailed instructions on how to handle that process at most of its stores.

Some Questions About Priceprotectr.com
Why do the stores agree to participate in this process, or do they? Will the site soon offer product recommendations to customers when they see prices going down on preferred items? Or will they offer some kind of price comparisons to shoppers? Finally, I recommend they start a FAQ page.
