LOS GATOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/15/11 -- Savvy.com, the leading consumer-facing mobile app and website that offers shoppers the best prices before and after they buy, announces the availability of an Android app and the addition of 19 supported retailers. The application, available for download in the Android Market, ensures that Savvy.com users only pay the best price possible for a purchased item by navigating price adjustment policies and sending notifications of any savings automatically.
"Consumers are amidst one of the biggest holiday shopping seasons in years and it is our mission to ensure savings that are rightfully theirs end up in their wallets," said Samantha Fein, vice-president of marketing of Savvy.com. "Android users make up 42.8%(1) of the shoppers this season and Savvy.com app now arms them with automatic price protection this holiday season and beyond."
The Android app is the latest addition to the rapidly growing Savvy.com platform. In just four weeks since its release, the Savvy.com iPhone app has achieved over 20,000 downloads and the total number of supported retailers has expanded by nearly 50%. The Savvy.com app now seamlessly price protects consumers' purchases at 57 national retail chains including newly announced Ace Hardware, Aldo, Avon, Barnes & Noble, Brookstone, Coldwater Creek, Dillard's, IKEA, J.Jill, Lord & Taylor, Meijer, Newegg, Oriental Trading, Pier 1 Imports, Staples, Sunglass Hut, Torrid and Victoria's Secret.

"The past month of substantial growth for Savvy.com has validated our pledge to fix broken loyalty programs between retailers and consumers," notes Paul Patterson, Co-Founder of Savvy.com. "We are motivated by the positive feedback from our iPhone users, high download numbers and growth of supported retailers and are excited about putting savings into the pockets of consumers."
Android users will have access to the key features that have made Savvy.com a hit with iPhone users: a built-in receipt manager that notifies them when items they've purchased have since been marked down, and the ability to track the price of specific products they'd like to purchase. Consumers simply snap photos of receipts from purchases they've made and are alerted if a purchased item drops in price, enabling them to collect additional savings from stores' price protection policies. Additionally, consumers can scan the barcodes of in-store products they want to buy, select the price they want to pay for each item, and receive notifications if the item goes on sale for that set price. The Savvy.com Android app is available now for download and is also available online at www.savvy.com.
