Internet Explorer. More like Internet Exploder. Mozilla Firefox. That’s so 2011. Google Chrome is the most popular web browser in the world with nearly 44% of all internet traffic. That is nearly double the next biggest browser. If you are using anything but Chrome, you might be missing out on some of the biggest money saving Chrome Extensions available.
Saving money is sweet. That’s why they call my favorite shopping plugin Honey.
Honey is a Chrome extension that I’ve mentioned on this site a couple of times before. I repeatedly mention Honey because it is really that great. When you are on nearly any major website’s checkout page, a little Honey button will appear. Just click and Honey will automatically test coupon codes for that site and tell you which will save you the most money.
I’ve saved hundreds using Honey, and any online shopper is wasting serious money if they are not trying to find the sweet savings.
If you are a shopper at Amazon, Best Buy, or New Egg’s websites, The Camelizer is for you. Camelizer adds price tracking charts to your visits to those store so you can see if you are getting a great deal or a bad one.
Even better, you can set price watch notifications for products at those stores so you will know when the price drops and you should buy.
Add The Camelizer from the Chrome web store here.
If you use eBay to bid on auctions, you want the best opportunity to sneak in at the last second and make the winning bid without over bidding by more than you have to. eBay snipers automate that process for you.
While sniping isn’t allowed on all auction sites, eBay has acknowledged and allowed snipers to operate on the site for years.
You can setup a sniper through a Chrome extension or one of a few websites. Some are free, others charge a fee. Either way, if you are not sniping, you are at a big disadvantage to win auctions and get the best price possible for your items.
There are several options for Chrome, but Myibidder is a good place to start.
Price Comparison Chrome Extensions
When I buy something, I get really mad if I see it somewhere else at a lower price. It has happened to all of us, but Chrome makes it easier to avoid making it a regular occurrence.
Like Honey, price comparison tools don’t show up until you need them, but when they work, they can save you a bundle of cash.
These tools pop up a bar at the top of the product page when you are at supported online shopping sites. They pull in prices for the exact same product all around the web, and they will let you know the cheapest option to buy.
