Top browser extensions to save you money
There are a range of different extensions to save you money while shopping. They work in a variety of different ways – some of them find you coupons, while others look for other websites selling the same product for a cheaper price.
By using two or three of them, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a good price on anything!
The undisputed king of money saving extensions, Honey automatically applies discount codes and vouchers at checkout. The browser extension was recently purchased by money transfer giant PayPal for a whopping $4 billion, further cementing its position as the go-to name for saving money while shopping.
Installing Honey is simple, and the rewards are massive. Honey isn’t just for buying material products, either. You can use it for everything from buying a new pair of Levis to ordering a Dominos.
If you want to make double-sure that you’re getting a good coupon at checkout, then Shopper.com is another great extension to save you money while shopping online. This extension works in much the same way as Honey and works with more than 38,000 brands worldwide.
Wikibuy is an extension that looks for coupons and alternate seller when you’re shopping on Amazon and other online retailers. Most reviews of the extension point out that it’s more effective at finding coupons for products listed on Amazon than Honey.
If you’re an Amazon addict, then Wikibuy is a must-have browser extension for saving you money while you shop. It looks through other websites like eBay, Target, and Walmart – as well as other stores within Amazon – to find your product at a cheaper price.
Ever parted with your money for a product, only to see that the price has dropped the next week? Piggy was designed to get you refunds when there’s a price drop on a product you recently purchased.
Piggy will save the purchases that you make and track them to see if the price drops – if it does, then Piggy will automatically send a request for a rebate. On top of this, Piggy works with more than 6,000 online stores to hunt down discount coupons and deals for you so that you can save even more money while shopping.
The final entry on our list is Dream. This is a money-saving browser extension with a pretty neat twist. Dream links to your bank account and automatically takes out money every two-weeks.
The more money you have in your Dream account, the more lottery-style entries you’ll be entered into to win discount coupons on various vacations. Your money is secure and you’ll likely be able to win some great coupons out of it.
