Finding deals online can seem like a hit-or-miss exercise between juggling store sites, manufacturer pages and their brand pages on Facebook and Twitter. Tweetalicious aims to solve your deal shopping woes. It’s a handy site that serves up deals from across the Twitterverse based on your interests. You can use it on your computer or other Internet-connected device as well as through a made-for-iPhone free app.
"We believe that Tweetalicious can deliver that sense of discovery and fun for shopping," Harrison Lee, Tweetalicious co-founder, told TechNewsDaily.
For all those who’ve never seen a reason to join Twitter, now you have one. Forget tweets, followers and following. Simply set up your Twitter account, head over to Tweetalicious and set your shopping preferences. From then on, you’ll have your own updated shopping stream when you visit Tweetalicious. You can offer a virtual thumbs-up when you like a deal to help the site learn more about your tastes. Deals can also be saved to a Wish List for future reference.
Here’s how it works:
Go to tweetalicious.com. The site will ask you to allow it access to your Twitter account. Select your interests from the categories Computers & Electronics, Fashion & Apparel, Health & Beauty, Toys & Games and Holidays & Occasions. Next, choose the brands and stores you like. That’s it.
Whenever you visit your Tweetalicious page, you’ll have a curated list of current deals that match your preferences. You’ll also have a “deal of the day” at the top of the page. Not interested? Click and roll the dice for a new one. Tweetalicious pulls deals from retailers, manufacturers, coupon sites , Ebay and more.
Soon, the startup hopes to incorporate deals pulled in from other social networks, including Facebook and LinkedIn. An Android app is in the pipeline, but no launch date has yet been set.
