Groupon feature idea…

Hey Groupon – here’s a feature idea for you, if for some reason it isn’t already on your list…

Create a “Watch list” for products. There’s already a “Follow” feature to follow specific companies to see what deals they have, but that excites me less than if I’m looking for a deal on a certain product in the future. Google Alerts lets me keep an eye out for words and phrases that I’m interested in, and sends me a message when that item gets indexed in their search engine. I’d be more likely to buy Groupons if I was notified when something I wanted became available…

For example, I might want to repair the gutters on my house or replace the windshield on my car, but it isn’t a big rush; getting a notification via txt and/or email letting me know that my keyword or phrase has popped up would make me seriously consider buying a Groupon that day.

Here’s a quick mock-up of what I’m thinking…
