(WXYZ) – Cyber Monday is a wild day for sales: it's Black Friday without the elbows, but with the same speed. If you are not careful, you will be left behind and the offers will not stay with you.
This morning at 7 Action News, we took a closer look at some useful web extensions that will help make sure you get the best deals.
"Invisible Hand" is a downloadable web extension that regularly scans thousands of websites and ensures that the purchase price you are about to "add to the cart" is, in fact, the lowest available online agreement. The good thing about Invisible Hand is that it works with almost any browser you like to use: Chrome, Firefox and Apple Safari: there is also an iPhone application, so you can download it to your phone if you decide to do something in person. shopping.
Another web extension that will help you is called "Honey". Unlike Invisible Hand, Honey will not compare the price of the store, what it does is look for coupon codes on the Internet. If you are buying something on a website, it will automatically insert any coupon code it finds. If it does not exist, nothing happens. If there is a coupon code, it will connect you and you will see the savings automatically.
Here's a third option: CamelCamelCamel – no, that's not a typo. CamelCamelCamel was called "mandatory bookmark" by PC World magazine. You must register to get an account, but it allows you to track if a discount is a theft, or just a small change in the normal price. When Cyber Monday offers are questionable, it's worth checking if you're getting the big discount you think you're getting.
Of course, none of this is useful if you get stuck at work and the boss is a fan of wasting time at work.
That's why it's important to have a plan to keep your tabs hidden. If you use a MAC, you can click on CTRL + TAB and it will alternate automatically between the tabs of your Internet provider.
Another great idea: download a shortcut that will kill the selected websites that you program with the click of a single button or slide the mouse. The Boss button is easy to use, but you'll need to use Google Chrome if you plan to use it.
