An app called Earny can save you money on online shopping that might have dropped in price even after you’ve paid for the item.
One person signed up for Earny after reading its offer somewhere on the internet. She purchased a pair of shoes on Zappos. And within few days, she received an email explaining that a $10 credit had been applied because the item had dropped in price.
The reason behind it was that Earny had sent an email on her behalf from her account acting like her. It asked for price protection on an item bought just days prior, complete with the order number and difference in price and the link to it. And a smiley.
The email said:
I have a question…
I think I can get price protection on Louise et Cie Bette, is this possible?
If this is the case, then I would like to get price protection on the item I bought on June 21, 2017. Here is the order number: #xxxxxx and the new price [with a link to Zappos’ new price.] The price has dropped $10.00 since I originally got Louise et Cie Bette.
I would love a refund on my original payment.
Thanks for answering my questions, let me know if you need anything from me.

Interesting. Although that person had never sent that email, she learned that Earny did it for her. Convenient, but is it worth her privacy?
