By safely accessing and organizing e‑receipts via email, the Rakuten Slice app tracks the progress of your purchases and sends alerts about price adjustments and recalls, making it easy to save money - or even a life. Here's a quick overview of how it works:
Rakuten Slice finds e‑receipts in your inbox by identifying specific keywords, such as "order" or "shipped" in the email subject line. All other emails are ignored.
Once an e‑receipt is found, Rakuten Slice opens it to pull only the information that is relevant to help you know what you bought and when it will arrive.
Tracking numbers, order numbers, item descriptions - everything gets centrally stored in Rakuten Slice and augmented with real-time updates from third parties like UPS, so that you have the latest information at your fingertips.
No more logging into Amazon, Overstock, UPS, or other web sites to check the
status of your packages. Rakuten Slice automatically alerts you when your package has
shipped or is out for delivery.
Ever discovered that the price of what you bought yesterday has dropped today?
Rakuten Slice alerts you when a price drop occurs and helps you get money back. No
haggling with the retailer required.
Never worry about accidentally dashing out to the mall without your receipt for a return. All receipts can be pulled up on-the-go via your smartphone. We even include links to the return policy.
Once Rakuten Slice captures an e-receipt from your inbox, you can delete the email and free up your inbox for more important stuff. It's all safely stored in Rakuten Slice and easily searchable.
Rakuten Slice alerts you when anything you've bought is recalled by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, helping you take action quickly and keep your family safe.
