Decide.com review: should I wait to buy?

I am a thrifter so naturally, I labor over all my purchase decisions...okay so maybe I'm also horrendously cheap but that's besides the point. It is not uncommon for me to spend long periods of time staring at an item in the store contemplating: Should I buy this? Do I really need this? Am I getting a good deal? Is this the right time to buy?

Thanks to apps like ShopySavvy for Android I can tell if I'm getting the best price on item at a particular store that given moment...but the app won't tell me if it's the best time to buy the product. Decide.com comes to the rescue.

Decide.com gives current product price predictions, advising consumers to wait to buy or buy it now. Predictions are based on past product price history, future model release dates, the typical product release cycle among other factors. Unfortunately for me, this means I will feel ripped off unless I am getting the lowest possible price...but I digress.

The site is equipped with a search bar that allows you to search for a product specifically or non-specifically. You can search "panasonic lumix", which will bring up every product model for you to select the one you want, or "panasonic lumix DMC-FH25K"to get exactly what you want...although in this case, I have to wait to get what I want. Just one of life's little irritating themes I guess.

Decide.com is one of the many sites I have listed in the Thrifting Resources section of my blog, a bank of thrifty, money-saving websites. Please let me know if you have one to share!
