Review: Top 5 Shopping Chrome Add-ons (Save Money + Time!)
Like most people, I shop online an absolute TON. Unfortunately, I don’t have an unlimited budget. It’s because of this, that over the years, I’ve tested many of the popular extensions out there to save money and I’ve compiled a list of the best tools to use to shop smarter and more efficiently (and within budget).
Here are the top 5 shopping extensions to save you money and time online:
Ebates has been around for over a decade and provides cashback for a very large number of sites. The Ebates extension gives you access to various cashback options when you’re browsing a supported site. Get it here.
Whenever you check out online, Honey will search for applicable coupons and apply them to your purchase by automatically filling in the coupon code for you. No more spending forever googling for coupon codes. Get it here.
Dolla is a relative newcomer to the online saving space however the team behind it appear to have focused a lot of their efforts on product matching and design. Doesn’t support coupons or travel, but shopping sites they do support are growing in number. Get it here.
Amazon has a service called Smile that sends a certain percentage of every dollar you spend to your favorite charity. All you need to do is browse to ‘smile.amazon.com’ instead of just ‘amazon.com’. This extension helps you out by always ensuring that by default you’re redirected to ‘smile.amazon.com’ so you give to charity automatically every time you shop. Get it here.
The Camelizer is a useful extension that shows you the price history of the item you’re browsing on Amazon and will help you decide whether it’s better to buy now or wait. You can also get price alerts (if the price drops) via email or Twitter. Get it here.
