By , May 15th, 2018 | No Comments


Will these browser add-ons save you moneyYou might think twice about availing yourself of money making — or saving — opportunities if you have to go out of your way to claim them. But when they fit into things you already do or use, then it’s on! Here are 13 browser add-ons that save you money shopping online.

The Camelizer

This browser extension gives you a price history of anything you’re looking at on Amazon — if you see fluctuations that means the product could go on sale again in the future.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

CouponCabin Sidekick

This extension hooks you up with savings and cash-back offers on over 1,800 retail websites, including Amazon, Kohl’s, Best Buy, and Target. Any time you shop at a website that has deals available, you’ll see a notification right above the store’s logo that includes any coupon or cash-back details.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari

Cently by CouponFollow

This plugin makes it a little bit easier to use coupon codes online: Anytime you check out from a participating online store, the coupon code box will automatically be highlighted in red. Click on it to access a drop-down menu of all the current codes, from which you select the one you want to use and it gets added to the box.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Safari

Ebates Cash-Back Button

Automatically activate cash back deals at every online store you visit — coupon codes automatically apply at checkout, so you don’t have to key in anything yourself. Cash-back percentages at different retailers vary but you see the amounts when you visit the sites in question.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Safari

Fakespot

This clever add-on sifts through user reviews to weed out products that were only reviewed by people who received the item for free. The plugin also approaches fake reviews on Yelp in a similar fashion.

Which browser: Chrome

Gumdrop by GoodShop

This plugin finds coupons for you and automatically applies them wherever you shop. All you have to do is click a pink button labeled “save money” whenever you see it pop up on your screen.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Safari

Honey

Find the lowest possible prices on Amazon as discount codes are automatically applied to all your transactions. This saves you from having to scour coupon aggregator sites for the latest deals. You can also earn up to 100% cash back on eligible purchases by joining HoneyGold.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari

InvisibleHand

This one tracks prices while you shop and informs you of where you might find better prices than what you might currently be looking at. It also tells you whether the store you’re shopping at has any current coupons available, but you have to enter the discount code manually.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox, and Safari

PriceBlink

Whenever you shop online, PriceBlink lets you know if there’s a better price elsewhere online. If it finds something that is, you see a small bar at the top of your screen with a drop-down menu of other choices, including coupons. All you have to do is click to go right to the better deal.

Which browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari

Pronto

This plugin puts a floating button into the lower right corner of your screen — click on it for price comparisons of products that compete with whatever you are looking at online. This saves you time finding the best price on just about anything you browse.

Which browser: Chrome

SliceWatch

This shopping plugin notifies you when items on your wish list go on sale. Whenever you visit participating retailers’ sites, you see a teal colored icon in the top right hand corner. Click it when you see a product you want to monitor and the app will notify you via email when the price drops.

Which browser: Chrome

Wallaby

If you have multiple credit cards with different rewards schemes, this plugin’s for you: It tells you which of your pieces of plastic to use for each transaction to maximize your cash back or other incentives. This is especially helpful for the cards that have multiple tiers of payout percentages for different product categories. To use this browser extension, shop online like you normally would, and at checkout time, click the Wallaby icon to see which card to use.

Which browser: Chrome

Wikibuy

This plugin will let you know if anything you’re looking at on Amazon is cheaper somewhere else — a window pops up in the lower-left-hand corner showing you the better deal. When you install the extension into your browser, it asks you whether you are an Amazon Prime member and your zip code — to help it figure out pricing details.

Which browser: Chrome
