I love technology. I love it so much that I try to incorporate whenever I can, even when it involves shopping.
Starting from the comfort of my browser and favorite pair of sweats, I am able to buy new books, grocery shop, or order just about anything I want all while saving time so I can focus on other things. While the convenience is wonderful, I’m also able to incorporate savings into this process.
Here are 3 browser extensions I use to find the best deals while not wasting a lot of time.
Honey: Helps you find coupon codes everywhere
The Honey plug-in aggregates every possible discount or coupon code offered on an online store, helping you save money immediately.
Let’s say you head over to Gap’s website to buy a new pair of jeans. The moment you open up the site, the Honey extension automatically informs you how many coupon codes are available for the store.
Once you are ready to check out, you simply click on the Honey extension, copy the code you want to use, and paste it into the promotion box.
After you’ve purchased enough items with the extension, you have the opportunity to receive cash back from the app.
Direct savings as well as cash back is a smart way for you to save money and time.
Amazon Assistant: Saves you time and money on Amazon
Amazon Assistant is the official browser extension for Amazon. It provides you with a handy product and price comparisons so you not spending hours searching for a cheaper option online.
It also allows you to automatically check out Amazons Deal of the Day, which is the products that are specially marked down for one day.
One of the best things about this plug-in is that it has a feature that takes you straight to AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a program that will automatically donate a percentage of your purchase to different charities at no cost to you.
Price Alarm: Helps discover the best prices on Amazon and eBay
Price Alarm is an extension that is setup to track prices on both eBay and Amazon so you don’t have to continually check that listing like it’s an ex’s twitter.
All you have to do is find a product you are interested in on Price Alarm’s website, click on the price alarm button, and type in the price you would like to pay for the product. As soon as the that product reaches the price you typed in, you’ll get an tweet or email alerting you.
