  • Edison Mail’s new Price Alert for Android monitors online price changes at top retailers throughout the USA that have price match policies in place, like Nike, Walmart, Target, and many others.
  • Once enabled, the app will track your purchases and watch for a price drop of more than $1.00, and alert you of potential cash back deals.
  • Download Edison Mail on iOS or Android.

According to a recent study, approximately 79% of smartphone users have shopped on their mobile devices within the last 6 months. With over 44% of smartphone users in the U.S. using Android devices, that’s a lot of Android shoppers searching for deals and good prices. Which is why we’re proud to announce that Price Alert has arrived on Android! With this new update, Android users don’t need to worry about losing out on cash back offers from dozens of stores that take part in price matching.

Here’s how it works: once you authorize Price Alert to monitor prices, all you have to do is shop like you normally would. As long as the price matching retailer sends an e-receipt with a link to the item purchased, Price Alert will be able to monitor the prices. Price Alert works in the background — alerting you if there’s been a price drop of more than $1.00 on a recently purchased item. Once Price Alert detects a price drop, Edison Mail will send you a pre-filled email draft to request a refund for the difference — all you need to do is press send. You can see the items being monitored at the top of the Bills & Receipts assistant page.

Just in time for the holiday shopping season that is about to begin, Android users can now rest easy knowing that the price they paid for an item is in fact the best price, without having to download an additional app. Launched earlier this year for iOS, Edison Mail’s Price Alert has worked to protect our users’ wallets. Popular stores supported by Price Alert include Best Buy, Old Navy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, Nike, Target, Walmart, and many more.

Continuing a Year of Innovations

Throughout 2019, Edison Mail has added new features to help Android users have a better email experience. We’ve added features to cut down on inbox overload such as Block Sender which banishes unwanted senders from your inbox and bulk delete with a tap. There have also been additions that streamline your workflow to save time — including frequent contact suggestions that appear when composing an email, quick login with smart lock, along with other accessibility improvements. With Dark Mode coming out in late October, 2019 is looking to be a year full of exciting improvements to email for Android users.
