You have to give this a fair try and you will love it!! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen
Let me say that I had no knowledge of the developer or anyone/anything related to this add-on when I installed it. In fact, I am going to read more about it after I write this, but I truly wanted this to be an unbiased review, coming from a real user who happens to be an experienced I.T. tech and an avid Internet user/shopper/consumer. So, with that said: I LOVE THIS ADD-ON! and would give it MORE than 5 stars if possible...
However, I almost uninstalled it before I gave it a chance because I truly hate ads, and when I first saw the little windows with "ads" in it popping up all the time, I was a little annoyed as I spend a lot of time on the Amazon website (see below for why...) So: the moral of the story is you have to give it a true trial to see its true beauty! [If you are not shopping, you can turn it off easily on each page or by temporarily disabling it, but sometimes it is interesting even if you aren't shopping!!] If you ARE shopping, this add-on is fantastic! It has truly saved me a lot of money so, just take the time to learn how it works, and you will see!
First of all, once you "zero in" on a product that you are interested in, this terrific little tool will literally "scan" your product and put a small window with the same and "similar" items for sale elsewhere on the Internet which is great for comparison shopping!!! [The sites all seem to be very "trustworthy" sites too, which of course is very important to watch!]
So, as a "retired" IT geek, I am not only an avid online shopper, but I also have recently become an eBay and Amazon seller. This tool works great for both of these roles; buyer and seller! I can see what prices are out there for items I want to sell, and I can find alternative prices when I want to buy.
I'll give you a recent specific example: a few days ago, I wanted to buy some refills for a pet-hair upholstery cleaner tool, and in the past, I have always purchased them online because they are hard to find (and expensive) in my local stores. So: I went to Amazon, and when I got to the product page, the lowest price was $6.29 that day. The "WindowShopper" popped up under the product picture, and showed about 6-8 other options, one of which was drugstore.com for only $4.29! :) That meant a $2.00 savings each, and I wanted at least a few of them. I clicked on the "WindowShopper" picture for drugstore.com, and it took me straight to the product page, where I found that in addition to the $2 savings, there was a special: buy one, get one 50% off sale for the brand I wanted! I found that they offered free shipping if you spent $25.00 or more, so 4 at $4.29 and 4 @ 2.15 brought my total just over $25.00. However, then they offered $5.00 off a $30.00 purchase, so I decided to go ahead and purchased 10 of them, bringing my total to $30.70 to activate the coupon. Bottom line: instead of 10 @ 6.29 ($62.90,) my bill was only $25.70 for 10 of them!! I SAVED $37.20 (almost 60%) in one ordinary transaction, without having to search all over the internet for prices!! P.S. This was Monday, and I received them Wednesday, even with the "free" 5-7 day shipping.
I apologize for the long review, but I thought a "real example" would be helpful if you are considering this add-on! As I said, I almost uninstalled it without even giving it a chance, but I am VERY GLAD that I didn't! This is definitely a keeper!! [No disrespect to Amazon, either! It just worked out that this time Amazon was not the cheapest price, and this add-on gave me that information in just a few seconds without going through the normal long shopping search process. Check it out - if you're an Internet shopper, I bet you will find it as invaluable as I do!
A great big TY to the developer for such a great money-saving tool; I'm looking forward to the future development of this add-on.
