The Six Best Shopping Extensions To Add To Your Browser

Shopping Extensions

Offers are something that never fails to attract customers. When we see a sale or offer, we usually buy it with the thought that we are saving money by buying the product while there is a discount. Almost everyone is happy to get a good deal. Who would not prefer to get something for a lower price without having to sacrifice quality? Adding these shopping extensions to a browser will make shopping more economical and easier than before.

Also, say you find something that you want to buy online but are low on cash. Some of these shopping extensions will help you save them so that you can buy them later. You can save products from different stores. This way you do not have to go through the hassle of checking your saved items on different sites. Below are the six best extensions that people who love to shop will benefit from.

With the Karma extension, you can save products and get notified when there is a price reduction. When you open an online shopping website, the extension pops up on the sidebar. Stumble upon something you love, just click on the Karma icon. It will open a small window that will let you save the product and lets you choose when you want to be notified. It is best to choose “any price change.” On Karma you can create new lists thus being able to categorise your saved items.

When you open your account on Karma, it will show all the offers, cashback and coupon codes available. You can go to notifications to check on the products you saved. It will show if a product is on sale or when something is sold out. One disadvantage with Karma is that some coupons do not have enough details. There is no clarification of how much you need to spend or what you need to buy to get the coupon.

Compared to other shopping extensions, Honey is easier to use. All that you have to do is add the shopping extension to your browser. Whenever you do online shopping, Honey automatically checks for coupons and applies the one that will save you the most money. If there are no coupons available, the extension will notify you. 

Here is a way to check which stores have coupons. Click on the Honey extension on your browser. It will show all the trending offer codes. Love shopping at a site but did not find a coupon? Click on the search icon, type in the store name on the search bar and follow the store. You will get notified when a new coupon is available.

Are you someone who goes to as many shops as you can to find which one has the best deal? Then Avast SafePrice makes that job easy for you. It compares different stores and lets you know where you can save more money. 

You can search for existing offers based on items or stores. Click on the extension icon and type in the product’s name on the offers section. It will show you the offers available. There is one downfall though. When the extension searches for offers, it looks at the product’s name and not the category. This sometimes would give irrelevant results. For instance, if you want to buy tea, the extension may show a tea party dress in the results.
