Canada too please! Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

This app sounds amazing! I live in Canada and I'm mainly house bound AND often bedridden. :( My husband and son do the majority of the shopping and this so would be absolutely amazing for us. It would save time AND money...things we now have much less of due to my inability to help out much anymore. Please include Canada! (I'm going to download this anyway and see what happens) :)

PriceBlink Toolbar Icon can't be removed in FF29 Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

PriceBlink doesn't always find me the best deal, but it finds enough deals to justify using it. However, with Firefox 29 now having removed a toolbar, space for icons is at a premium, and I decided to use the Firefox "Customize" feature for the toolbars to remove the PriceBlink icon, and that seemed to work.... until I reopened Firefox again, and the icon reappeared. As it turns out, the icon can't be removed in Firefox 29. PLEASE tell me this is a bug, and not intentional.... before I have to delete PriceBlink. I would normally rate PriceBlink with 4 stars, but it's a 3 star addon (and gone) if this can't be fixed. VERY annoying.

Hi, thanks for the feedback and that's definitely not our intent. When you remove the PriceBlink icon from your toolbar it should stay gone. We will work on a fix immediately. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any future support requests and product suggestions: dbaldwin at priceblink

Thanks for your feedback and patience.

Uses link hijacking to submit your purchase via the company's referral links Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

The way this company makes money is: Every time you click a link to buy a product recommended by the plugin, the plugin re-writes the link so it includes a referral code for the company that provides the plug-in. This violates the terms of service of most affiliate programs (Amazon in particular):

“You will not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise obscure the URL of your site containing Special Links (including by use of a redirecting page) such that we cannot reasonably determine the site from which a customer clicks through such Special Link to the Amazon Site.”

I have reported them to Amazon and I encourage you to do the same.

I'm also pretty sure they're paying people to write reviews for their add-on, because of the suspicious nature of many of the reviews: Many of the reviewers have only one review (for this add-on) and they are cookie cutter reviews.

Effortless Price Tool Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Awesome add-on! Makes finding the best price effortless, and works with all of the sites I shop at.

Great add-on and the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is an annoying tendency for the toolbar icon to put itself in a separate row from the rest of my icons every time I open Firefox. Not a major issue, just annoying.

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

It generally shows up to 5 competing websites. Occasionally it shows the wrong product on the other websites. The one thing I wish to God they'd add is the ability to simply rightclick the icon and disable the addon completely! It really slows down the loading of webpages beyond all hope. So navigating between pages I've already viewed becomes a waiting game. It's absurd that I have to open my addons, drill down to the pricelink addon before I can choose to enable or disable it. At least it doesn't require a FF restart.

Finds alternative prices but does not save user settings Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

PriceBlink is basically working, but every time I launch Firefox, the extension behaves as if it was just installed for the first time:
_______________

[new tab]
Installation Complete
Follow the steps below to verify your installation...

[alert bubble]
PriceBlink is now active
Use PriceBlink as my default search provider
_______________

Im really getting tired of having to tell PriceBlink that I do not want it to hijack my Search Bar settings. Also the toolbar button keeps returning at browser launch, even after I removed it. [FF Mac 26.0]

Hi,

Thanks for reporting this issue. You appear to have stumbled across a bug as it's not our intent to show you the installation page or search offer more than once. You should see this behavior the first time and never again.

I recently helped another user that was using Dropbox to backup his Firefox profile folder. It turns out that this was causing his extensions directly to become read-only. Once this happened PriceBlink was unable to save any information and it triggered the behavior you describe.

I'd like to help you resolve this issue asap. Please feel free to reach out to me directly and we can work through it together. My email address is dbaldwin@priceblink.com

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to getting this issue resolved.

No help on Amazon.com Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

This review is only about how PriceBlink behaved on Amazon.com. (That was so discouraging that I didn't try it anywhere else.)

During a browsing session on Amazon, PriceBlink showed lower prices for only 6 of about 40 items. The "best price" for all the other items was higher, mostly by $2-3. In one case, PriceBlink showed a best price of $17.28 for an Amazon item priced at $2.98. The 6 items for which PriceBlink did show lower prices were very cheap anyway -- Amazon price $2.50-4.00 -- and PriceBlink's lower price was only a few cents less.

Not a keeper for me.

If I understand you correctly, you're wondering why PriceBlink shows prices that are higher than the price shown on the page you were viewing. If so, that's because you've already found the lowest price on that item.

PriceBlink checks prices from over 11,000 retailers whenever you're shopping. If a lower price is available, it will show you those prices. However, if you've already found the lowest price, PriceBlink confirms that you've found the lowest price, and lets you know where else you can buy the item. This is helpful in the event the product you are viewing is out of stock or you discover additional shipping charges after adding the item to your cart.

If you're disappointed because PriceBlink couldn't find a lower price, please realize that we don't set the prices -- we merely scan all the prices available on a product and let you know who has the lowest price. If you feel like we missed a lower price that we should have reported, please contact us at support@priceblink.com so we can investigate.

I installed this add-on mostly to test out for a collection I have and have ended up loving it. Not only does it show you what vendor/store has a lower price for the same item, you can also link directly to that vendor/store and if coupons or price breaks are available, it shows that as well. When not shopping, you don't even know you have it. It stays quietly in browser/tool bar until you need it. Awesome add-on!! Thank you so much

Works great but the bar keeps showing up in google search results Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

I like everything except the addon showing up in my google search results.

Please at least allow me to stop it from showing up on google.com

In a rush to purchase a new laptop before they all had Windows 8, I went onto Newegg because they usually give the best specs and because they usually have the most reviews, which I value highly, if there are enough of them. The listed price was $939.99. Up came PriceBlink, "This item may be purchased at Amazon.com for $619.99 + $6.99 shipping&handling (S&H). I think that there was no charge for S&H by Newegg. Well that was $314.00 saved. With that $314.00 I bought a 27" widescreen Acer for my desktop that was on a one-day sale (and it's great), a 1 TB USB3 Western Digital External HD (again aided by PriceBlink) for about $77 with S&H, since the laptop had USB3 ports, a very nice external DVD-RW and all of the new cables that I needed (my 23" monitor went from my desktop to the laptop). I still had a few dollars left to spend. Thank you PriceBlink! I have been relaying news of its existence to friends and they too have been saving money. None of them are the type of people who write reviews, but I know that they would all give PriceBlink 5 stars.

Not bad for first few, then baloney Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

First it let me know where to save money, then it let me know I already had the best price on a few items, then lying to me and telling me where I could buy the product for a little more than one third of the price. Turns out its not even close to the same product model. Example: Search for Veho VCC-005-MUVI-HD10 Muvi HD 1080p on Amazon and it tells you you can buy this $139.95 product for $59 "buy it now" price on Ebay. Unfortunately the product they cite is the "Veho muvi Pro DV Camcorder" which you can buy on Amazon for $54.12 in the first place.
UPDATE: They apparently have fixed the anomaly and were very polite in their response, and all this on a Sunday. I'll give it another try. They shouldn't take the blame when Amazon puts up a wrong UPC.

Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (3.5.2). 

We've fixed the issue...

You are right, PriceBlink showed you a product that was not a match. It turns out that Amazon.com has the wrong UPC code for that product, which is why the toolbar displayed the wrong product (you'll note that it was a slightly different model in the same product line). Anyway, that shouldn't have happened, and we've corrected the issue.

PriceBlink is one of the most accurate price comparison services in the market, but in rare cases it mismatches products. I hope you'll continue to use the toolbar and am confident that you'll find it to be quite accurate over time.

In the meantime, if you find any more mismatches like the one you reported, please let us know by contacting our support team directly. You'll notice that inside the "Compare Prices" list, there is a "Send us feedback" link where you can let us know if we've made a mistake.

May link to unsafe sites Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Just popped up a site that McAfee siteadviser warned was not safe. When using this add-on also use sietadvisor and world of trust because PriceBlink apparently doesn't filter out sites that might be a threat.
Update: Based on email reply from Priceblink, It appears that SiteAdvisor kicked up a false positive and Pricelink does filter sites for threats. That said, Pricelink did show a price on a different item...a blade instead of a complete blender. That stuff happens..if the price is way below market, suspect a mismatch. I'll continue to use Priceblink and appreciate the follow-thru.

Do you mind contacting us at support@priceblink.com and letting us know what site was unsafe? We do make certain that we only include approved merchants in our results. Thank you.

Great Money Saver Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I am a college student with a small part time job to help fund me. I use price blink on a daily basis for everything I buy. I love the outdoors, but gear is expensive. Price blink not only gives me competitor's prices, but coupons for the site I am on.

An improvement that I want would be a list of those competitor's coupons as well. Having the ability to see those competitor coupons would give me the capability of checking the prices for all companies, faster.
