I often make pots when I’m saving up for something I want to buy. I also like to try and find the best price available when I’ve saved enough. I use CamelCamelCamel.com a fair bit for this.
It would be pretty cool if you could set a goal for an item on a pot that would automagically update with the best price currently available from a range of popular sites.
So you could save as normal, and get a notification if the price drops and your goal is 100% or very close.
Similar things could be done for holiday pots with flights, hotels and so on.
This might have been suggested before, I searched but couldn’t find anything.
- Create a pot for a new laptop using the laptop name/model, or an Amazon link
- Pot is created with the goal amount being the current best price available. £600, for example.
- Manage to save and add £500 to the pot over several months.
- The price somewhere drops to £499, Monzo sends a notification that my goal has been met. Provides a link to buy.
