The Best Apps and Extensions for Better Holiday Shopping

Dec 23, 2011, 20:18 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Techlaze for this link. ]

"Priceblink: Priceblink is a useful-yet-unobtrusive shopping add-on for Chrome and Firefox that notifies you if the product you're browsing is available at a lower price from another retailer. Since the extension only shows up when you're shopping, there are no annoying pop-ups or notifications while you're browsing other sites.

"The way this add-on works is, every time you visit a product on a shopping site, let's say Amazon, then, Priceblink will automatically lookup other retailers and show you if the same product is available at a lower price somewhere else. Moreover, Priceblink also notifies you if there are any discount coupons available for that particular site. Clicking the notification then shows you the discount code, which you can use to save your hard-earned cash.

"Besides these aforesaid features, Priceblink also includes support for wish lists, price history, and price drop alerts, thus making it one of the best shopping extensions for browsers."
