Price comparisons are popular: for films, sound carriers, books, and especially for video games. Several portals are vying for the favor of customers with used goods. The price differences are mostly marginal and can only be found out through intensive research, which hardly any user will undertake to save a few cents. Now an app is supposed to simplify the procedure: “Save me” compares the current prices of used media.  

The users who put play boxes, “real” books or Blu-Rays on their shelves: they still exist. Despite countless download portals, physical media products continue to exist. One advantage over the purely digital versions is obvious: there is a flourishing second-hand market - and with it the chance of particularly low prices.

“Save me” smartphone app compares prices

Compare prices of used video games by hand for hours to save 50 cents? Very few gamers would probably take on that. Martin Dolacinski from Lübeck and his partner Maik Schmidt have developed a tool that is supposed to relieve users of price comparisons. “Save me”, as the app is called, does what the name promises: ideally, it saves money. 

“Save Me is a price comparison for used media - including games, films and numerous books,” explains Martin Dolacinski. "The currently largest providers of used goods are compared: Medimops, reBuy, Amazon & eBay." Because several well-known portals are searched, users can assume that they are determining good - if not always the best - prices for used media. That ultimately depends on whether the cheapest price can also be found with one of the providers listed by the app.

“Save me” is always practical for collectors: products that you own can be scanned in and saved in individual collections. This could avoid bad purchases, especially if you have the same game for different platforms. A useful side effect: you have an overview of the current value of your “treasures” and you can grab coveted titles at the best time.

“Save Me - Price Comparison” is available free of charge in the Apple App Store and in the Google Play Store: The project is financed through affiliate links and therefore does not cost users anything.

A function is to be added soon, with which you can show a friend your collection for a certain period of time. “Save me” is to be expanded regularly to include new features. The developers Maik and Martin are in constant contact with their Facebook community and want to implement the collected feedback as quickly as possible. “We are happy about every creative collector who has suggestions for improvement,” says Martin Dolacinski.
