If you shop on Amazon — and who doesn’t? — we’ve found an incredibly easy way you can automatically save yourself money.
It’s called Wikibuy, and it’s available as a browser extension or as an app. Once you click a button to install it, it instantly becomes your own personal heat-seeking missile for savings.
That’s why 3.9 million shoppers are using it, and that’s why it’s highly rated in the Chrome Web Store.
What is Wikibuy? We Use it to Find The Best Deals
When you shop around on Amazon, Wikibuy pops up and becomes an automatic price-comparison tool.
If you’re checking out a product like, say, a wireless speaker, Wikibuy searches thousands of other sellers, like Walmart and eBay, looking for a better price. It takes into account shipping, sales tax and availability, including size and color. It also tries coupon codes.
If you like what you see, click the “Continue to Wikibuy” button that shows up automatically on Amazon, and place your order. Wikibuy even predicts when your order will be delivered.
It Works Even if You’re Not Shopping on Amazon
Let’s say you’re not shopping on Amazon. Instead you’re shopping online on a different site, like Best Buy or Target. When it’s time to check out, Wikibuy automatically searches online for any coupons or promo codes or discounts that it can apply to your order.
It compiles data it collects from its millions of Wikibuy users. If a promo code worked for another Wikibuy user who bought a product before you, Wikibuy copies that code to save you money.
Honestly, This is One of The Easiest Ways to Save
If you’re not accustomed to browser plug-ins, then don’t let the term scare you away. It’s easy to download the thing, and it just automatically runs on top of your browser when you’re shopping. Simple.
Wikibuy is available on the browsers Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Firefox. It’s also available as an iPhone app.
Wikibuy gets good reviews from users, mainly because it’s free, simple and automatic. The browser extension has a 5-star rating from 3.9 million users in the Google Play store.
One final thing: You can also earn Wikibuy credits while you shop. You use those credits for gift cards.
That’s just one more feature. Wikibuy’s main draw is the automatic savings.
After a simple free install, see how it works for you.
