Search AOL Shopping Using AOL Instant Messenger

A bit more news from the shopping search scene. You can now search AOL Shopping via AOL Instant Messenger using a the AOL Shopping Buddy robot.

Once logged in, type “Main” to get going. Nine options are available including:

  • Search
  • Top Searches
  • Shopping List
  • Wish List
  • Deals & Steals
  • Gift Shops
  • Alerts (Opt “In” or “Out”)
  • View Top Categories

Searching is as simple as what you would do on the actual web site. Results include links to take you back to the InStore (AOL Shopping) web site to see the actual product listing. More on this one later.
