According to CNET, there are countless extensions on Chrome that mainly focus on helping its users to save some cash as they shop online.
Best Money Saving Deals Online: Chrome Extensions to Download
To cut to the chase, here are some of the best money-saving Chrome extensions that could make you a better online shopper, helping you further grow your savings.
Fake Review Checker
The state of the fake review plague on Amazon has gone to an alarming level. As such, the e-commerce giant recently pulled out products after allegations that the sellers were compensating their customers in exchange for positive reviews.
The prevailing review problem clouds the purchasing judgment of online consumers as it is meant to give users a better picture of the product's value for money and overall quality.
Thanks to Fakespot, an extension that provides an AI analysis of product reviews, consumers can now take ratings at face value.
As per Fakespot, the extension supports top e-commerce platforms in the United States.
Auto Coupon Application
Coupon codes commonly hide on the internet -- not to mention that applying them to your purchases adds another task to the checkout process.
That is where Honey, one of the top Chrome extensions in terms of saving money, comes in. The tool helps users search coupons applicable to the items that the users checked out. Not just that, it will also fill up the available coupon code for the consumer's convenience.
Also, Honey supports online stores like Target, Walmart, Macy's, and eBay, allowing users to get a glimpse of all the sales and coupons of the platform.
Price Comparison Tracker
Lastly, the constantly changing prices for online retail shops make it difficult for consumers to snag the best price deals. Some even feel disappointed after finding out that the price of their recent purchase decreased after they bought it.
The Camelizer, which basically shows the price history of an item, is the answer to that worry that most shoppers face. It provides a product price graph, showing its highs and lows.
Aside from manually checking the prices of products via its graph, Camelizer also notify its users via email and Twitter if there is a price drop.
