Usually on my way back home, I often browse ecommerce websites checking out new arrivals, fashion trends, latest book releases, and so on. One day, I liked a book and was about to buy it when I got a phone call. I got so engrossed over the call that I completely forgot about the book after that.
The next day in office, I was just browsing on the internet, and boom! A notification popped up saying “Bestsellers on best discounts! Grab your copy now!”
I immediately clicked the button and bought the book I was checking out the previous evening.
Had I not received this notification, I would certainly not have made the purchase as I had already forgotten about it.
