Website alerts you to the deals you want
NEW YORK (WABC) -- To save time in the quest to find a deal, Katie Finnegan and Erica Bell, former colleagues in the world of merchandising teamed up to create Hukkster.
"We revamped and modernized the term changed the spelling a bit so today's Hukkster is your on line personal shopping concierge,"
You know all those emails you get with items on sale? Often there's nothing you actually need or want. With Hukkster, you only get email alerts on items you're interested in. Let's say you're looking through J Crew online. You find a shirt you want, but you're willing to wait for the price to go down.
"You click it to the hukk right info is filtered to you,"
So when that item goes on sale, you get an email. If you like the price, you can buy it. So far you can hukk on hundreds of sites.
"Once you get that huckster notification you're hooked, or we like to say hucked,"
It's free to use Hukkster. The Hukkster team takes a small commission through a 3rd party. You don't pay anything extra, and it's not just for clothes.
"I hukked a vacumm. There are tons of applications,"
Of course, if there's something you want right now, you're probably best off buying now. For everything else, getting a better price makes good sense.
