A helpful extension

Honey is one of the many free Google Chrome extensions and it scours online stores for what the best deal is for a certain product. Before a user will check out, Honey will alert them and let them know how much they could save if this product is purchased new or refurbished.

It’s not going to save you a ton of money, but Honey is a great addition for any avid online shopper.

Tips and tricks for your browser

If the websites are not giving a user the results they want, there are strategies to fool an Internet browser to give out better prices. Emptying out a cart instead of saving items is an example of jury rigging the system in a shopper’s favor. Another way is clearing the cookies and cache of an Internet browser, which also fools the browser to show the user the best deals upfront and/or, depending on the website, will give the least expensive price during the first search.

Happy (deal) hunting!

Online shopping can be fun, especially when it comes to finding the cheapest prices and best deals. It does not have to be a chore to find those prices as well, as visiting any of these websites will certainly help out any rookie online shopper.
