I always turn to Amazon whenever I shop online, whether it's for something I want or need, or for something I didn't know I needed until I found it. From chairs in my dining room, to a mattress in my guest bedroom, to my favorite pair of joggers, Amazon has become my go-to place for shopping. I have my regular Amazon purchases for items like printer ink cartridges and batteries, as well as those random purchases that make me wonder how I ever lived without them, like the milk frother that helps me make delicious cappuccinos at home.
However, as much as I love the convenience of Amazon, years of online shopping experience have taught me that it doesn't always offer the best prices, even with free Prime shipping.
That's why I'm grateful for my friend who introduced me to Capital One Shopping, a free browser extension that helps me save money by always ensuring I get the best price. I wish I had known about it sooner!
Installing the extension is easy and works on all major browsers. Once it's installed, just continue shopping normally, and Capital One Shopping works its magic in the background.
Whenever you're looking at an item on Amazon, Capital One Shopping automatically and instantly tells you if you have the best price, or if you can find the same item for cheaper from another Amazon seller or anywhere else online. It will show you the final price, including sales tax and shipping charges, as well as the estimated delivery date. You can click the button to take you right to the item to purchase it.
Thanks to Capital One Shopping, I recently saved $2 on a pack of coffee filters on Amazon, and it has saved me a total of $26 in the past month alone! If you don't need the item right away, you can also add it to your "watchlist," and Capital One Shopping will notify you if the price drops.
I love saving money, but I don't always have the time to look around for the best deal. That's why I appreciate that Capital One Shopping does the hard work for me. Now, whenever I click that "Add to Cart" button, I'm confident I'm getting the best price out there.
It doesn't just work on Amazon - save anywhere!
It helps you save money on any online store, as long as it's one of the 100,000+ stores it has found savings for.
The extension will automatically apply available coupon codes to your cart, and you can even earn Shopping Rewards on the brands you love and redeem those rewards for gift cards.
So the next time you shop on Amazon, make sure you've installed Capital One Shopping to start saving. And remember, it's 100% free!
