You might think you are getting the best prices when you shop on Amazon, but I am here to let you in on a little secret: you aren’t.
Even if you are doing your best to browse online for the best deals on Amazon, there are hidden deals that are really difficult to find without the right help. To add insult to injury, usually when you shop on Amazon, you just assume you are getting the best prices, but some of the time you just aren’t. Not even close.
When I discovered the free online shopping Chrome extension Capital One Shopping it made me realize that I was basically getting ripped off every time I shopped Amazon without this hack.
Here’s how it works
Download Capital One Shopping (it literally takes one minute). Because Capital One Shopping is a browser extension, it will automatically appear on your web browser while you are online shopping to alert you of a better deal. But, one of our favorite features of using Capital One Shopping is that it will even alert you automatically when you could be saving on an item within Amazon.
For instance, I was browsing for a specific lipstick on Amazon, and because I had Capital One Shopping installed it automatically alerted me that I could save $1.58 by buying the lipstick from a different Amazon seller. Now, that might not seem like a lot, but imagine the savings if you were able to find a hidden deal on literally everything you buy on Amazon going forward.
It also will alert you if there is a better price on something outside of Amazon
Beyond alerting you to better deals within Amazon, it alerts you to better deals outside of Amazon. For instance, I was shopping on Amazon for Crest White Strips, and Capital One Shopping alerted me that I could save $15 buying them for another retailer. All I had to do was click on the Capital One Shopping green icon to be able to purchase them at that massively reduced price.
Bottom line: never get ripped off again
Even if Capital One Shopping doesn’t find you savings on an item that you want to purchase, by using it, you can rest easy knowing that you are getting the best deal on literally everything you are buying on Amazon going forward.
Do yourself a favor and add Capital One Shopping to Chrome now so the next time you shop Amazon, you’re ready to go.
