A wish is a web page on SaveNowClub that describes a user's intention to buy a product / service (wished item) and shows the following information:
public information viewable to general public:
private information viewable only to the wish owner and authorized users:
Here is an example wish for Mazda CX-5.
It's simple and easy to create a wish.
You may use either of the following ways:
Either way, you need to fill out pretty much the same simple form, all you need is to provide your email address (need to be verified) and name information as well as your target product name and zip code.
You enjoy the following benefits by creating and maintaining list of wishes
Find your wished item or browse all wished items on SaveNowClub platform.
Wished Item is a web page on SaveNowClub for a product / service that is wished by one or multiple SaveNowClub users. The web page lists out all wishes and price records of the product / service.
Here is the an example wished item: Audi Q7 SUV.
Price Records are records of price offered by seller for a product or service (wished item), they are what people look for when they research prices on their wished items.
SaveNowClub supports two types of price records: price offer and price paid.
These are currently active price quotes offered from sellers, for example, this offer on 2020 Ford Expedition MAX XLT, it was posted on 2/1/2021, and it will stay valid until the listed product is sold or the price gets changed by seller.
Here is another example price offer of a price offer for a used SUV near Chicago area.
These are past price paid records contributed by other buyers. This is an example price paid for 2020 Toyota Highlander. Since these records reflect transaction already happened, they generally do not expire.
Each price record is made up of 3 parts: public information, private information and dedicated mailbox
As you create a Price Record, you may choose to add a Dedicated Mailbox to it, the mailbox comes with these handy benefits
email@example.com) dedicated to this price record, your personal email sits behind this email address so your privacy is protected.
