This holiday season, more shoppers are doing their shopping online. More and more, shopping online has become the norm for the convenience factor and reducing covid risk.
While doing curbside pickup is an easy and safe way to check off items on your list, you may wonder if you’re getting the best deal. One big benefit of shopping online is the ability to compare prices, get reviews and search for coupon codes to apply to your purchase.
We’ve compiled a list of today’s best Chrome extensions to help this year:
Honey compares prices between Amazon and other online retailers, factoring in estimated shipping costs to find you the best deal.
You can search their website for a comprehensive list of valid coupon codes, or if you can wait a bit, Honey also keeps track of a product’s price history and allows you to set an alert for price drops.
PriceBlink is a really helpful tool with a slightly different interface than Honey. When shopping online, PriceBlink will appear at the top of the page in a yellow banner at the top. It will tell you if what you’re seeing is the best price (or where the best price is) along with the total price with any coupons added.
Like Honey, PriceBlink will also track pricing and let you set alerts for price drops.
InvisibleHand is a great tool for finding the best deals on travel and accommodations. It helps you find the best coupons available for flight, rental car and hotels so that traveling doesn’t have to break the bank.
RetailMeNot is a personal favorite. Along with the Chrome Extension, RetailMeNot also has a cellphone app for use on the go. They tout having coupons and deals for 20k+ retailers both online and in-store. Be sure to give it a look if you plan on shopping in-store this year.
Amazon Assistant for Chrome
If you’re a tried and true Amazon-only shopper, the Amazon Assistant for Chrome is the way to go. The extension will show you Amazon’s Deal of the Day and will also help you compare prices between websites.
