Whether you’re an Amazon Prime member who orders everything from shampoo to your winter wardrobe online, or you like browsing from the comfort of your couch but you still prefer the mall, you owe it to yourself to make your online shopping experience as pleasant as possible.
Enter Rakuten Slice. Formerly known as Ebates and now a much more comprehensive service, this tool was created to make online shopping as stress-free as possible by streamlining everything. No more searching frantically through your inbox to find that tracking number and receipt. No more wondering when each package is due to arrive. No more buyer’s remorse when you find you’ve overspent online-again. No more guessing if your sent package arrived at its destination. Rakuten Slice, or just Slice for short, does it all-and more!
Here are some of the features you’ll find on Slice:
- Receipt tracking. Slice integrates seamlessly with your inbox to find and store anything that’s purchase related. This includes all e-receipts, tracking numbers, confirmation emails and delivery alerts. Slice stores them all, even if you’ve deleted them from your inbox. Finding that receipt or tracking number is now just a click away!
- Delivery notifications. Never worry about porch pirates again. Slice alerts you as soon as any package lands on your doorstep.
- Auto-refund. You know that annoying feeling when you find out that an item’s price has dropped just days after you’ve bought it? When that happens, Slice will work with you to get your money back. It will let you know when a purchased item’s price has gone down, and then reach out to a retailer on your behalf to request a refund. This feature can put hundreds of dollars back in your pocket this year!
- Budget help. Slice uses high-level analytics to track your spending habits and then presents you with the data it’s collected in simple charts and graphs. Check out your spending traps at a glance, and see where you can cut back.
- Track outgoing parcels. Scan the barcode on every package you send out and Slice will tell you exactly where it’s located. Great for returns and for products sent by online sellers.
Slice is a completely free service with both an online extension and a mobile app version. Download Slice today, and make online shopping fun again!
