Shop Smarter Online with PriceBlink

I love shopping online.

Even when it’s not in the budget to buy something, I online “window shop.” I like to fill my cart with lots of things I want but can’t afford.

 

Most of the time, however, when I am actually shopping shopping online, I am on the lookout for a deal. I always, always, always google coupon codes before I buy anything. It’s amazing how many times I’ve found a free shipping coupon code or some percentage off. I love that feeling…but it does take extra time.

 

This week I tried out a tool called PriceBlink that claims to help you automatically find lower prices online – sounds too good to be true, right?

 

PriceBlink.com is a website where you can search for coupon codes and online deals – it’s nifty, but you still have to go to the website to find the deals.

 

The best part of PriceBlink is the browser add-on. You install an extension to your browser and then anytime you are shopping online, a little bar shows up at the top of your browser that looks like this:

 

The PriceBlink add-on has 3 specific parts:

  1. Are you looking at the cheapest place to buy the item?
  2. Where else you can buy it and for how much (includes shipping costs)
  3. Add to a wish list button (using your PriceBlink account)

 

I’ll give you a real-life example of some shopping I was doing for my hubby for Father’s Day (I gave him specific instructions NOT to read this blog…)

I was shopping for a new iPhone case because his broke.

The PriceBlink bar drops down and tells me that the case I’m looking at is substantially cheaper at newegg.com. So, of course I jump over there and order it for cheaper.

 

PriceBlink also alerts you when there are coupons available for the site you are shopping on:

While I was on Target.com there were 10 coupon codes available – pretty cool, right?

 

And the best thing is that the bar stays hidden while you browse the web and only drops down when it has important information to share with you – that way it isn’t annoying.

I’m a big fan and will definitely always have it installed on my browser – it’s free, helpful and saves me money. That’s my kind of tool!

Let me know if you try it out – I’d also love to know if it saves you some money the next time you are shopping online!

  26. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
