There are ways to save money shopping online without waiting for a good sale. We found some Chrome extensions specifically designed to sniff out coupon codes and other discounts and then automatically apply them to your cart before you check out.
These extensions not only find coupon codes, but also other benefits, such as rewards programs and price tracking. If you prefer to manually track prices yourself, you can also install the Camelizer extension from CamelCamelCamel. This service stores historical price data and is a great way to see if you are saving just a few dollars on a sale or if this is the best price ever on a product. It̵
Price tracking and automatic codes: honey
You’ve probably heard of Honey (Free) in an ad, but it really is a great way to save money by shopping online from 30,000+ websites. The popular extension activates just before you pay for what’s in your cart. It searches the web for valid coupon codes, tries each one and automatically applies the best one. It also has exclusive promo codes that you won’t find anywhere else.
Honey can also be used to earn rewards known as Honey Gold. The more you shop, the more gold you accumulate that you can ultimately use on gift cards from your favorite stores. It can also compare sellers on Amazon, taking into account Prime status and shipping, and it has built-in price tracking tools. Honey also has a more general droplist feature that allows you to add an item to your droplist and then receive a notification when other stores find a drop in prices.
Vouchers and Cash Back: Rakuten
Formerly known as Ebates, Rakuten (Free) not only does a great job of finding suitable coupons to use for your purchases, but it also allows you to earn cashback on some of them. It shows you the cashback prices for a product when you look it up on a search engine so you can compare prices at different stores before you click on one and if there is another store with better cashback rates than what you are in before you finish your purchase.
The Rakuten extension automatically finds and applies codes when you’re ready to check out – you don’t have to do anything extra. It works seamlessly in popular stores like Walmart, Kohl’s, Target, and others.
Community-related real-time discounts: WikiBuy
WikiBuy (Free) is a tool from Capital One that helps you find the latest discounts from popular online retailers. The extension is powered by over a million community users who also share coupons and lower price discoveries. As soon as a voucher is inserted and the WikiBuy system detects that it is working, it is automatically released to others. The same goes for deals; When a user finds a good deal in a store, the system shares it with other users and notifies them through their browser.
With the extension, you can also receive loyalty rewards from popular online retailers such as Macy’s, eBay or Walmart, which can be saved and ultimately redeemed for a gift card at WikiBuy. It can also highlight reviews and similar products to ensure you always make the best choice for a particular product.
See the latest deals: SlickDeals
SlickDeals is already one of the first websites through which you can find current offers for all types of products. So it makes sense that the SlickDeals Chrome extension (free) would be an excellent resource for saving money too. Backed by a huge online shopping community, SlickDeals brings you the latest deals and coupon codes. Also, the codes are automatically applied when checking out at popular retailers such as Lowe’s, GAP, Dell, Target, Kohl’s, Walmart, and others.
