CSC Client FreePriceAlerts Receives International Press as Online Shopping News Source
PETERBOROUGH, NH –Cookson Stephens Corp. client FreePriceAlerts received international press for the unique data and information it was able to present during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday kick off to this year’s holiday shopping season.
FreePriceAlerts CEO Bob Wilkins offered that once Black Friday and Cyber Monday had come and gone did that mean the deals were gone as well?
No, to the contrary. FPA CEO Bob Wilkins collected data showing that over 60 percent of the retail websites he tracks inflated their prices in the days leading up to the holiday shopping kick-off, so many BF and CM deals may not have been as good as they seemed (about 2 – 3 percent lower than the prices from a week or two earlier).
Wilkins anticipates that prices will get lower as the holidays get closer.
The FreePriceAlerts and Wilkins story were picked up by both the Associated Press and Reuters and were cited in dozens of stories around the world including the New York Times. Wilkins said that traffic to FreePriceAlerts.com increased significantly as a result of the media coverage.
