Beginning daily at noon Pacific Time, users have the opportunity to purchase a limited number of the day’s featured product at a discounted price.
“PriceGrabber.com users count on our site to help them find the products they’re shopping for at great prices, and we’re also a wonderful resource to discover new products and find out about hot pricing specials,” said Ron LaPierre, president of PriceGrabber.com. “Our Product of the Day is a fun new way for consumers to use PriceGrabber.com and our retail partners to discover a great daily deal, especially now when saving money is more important than ever.”
