Hope you never have to change emails for any reason. They will just keep your rewards that you supposedly earned. Of course, after reading other reviews, you never get hem anyway!
- by Firefox user 14799992, 8 days agoRated 1 out of 5This app appears to be nothing more than a pop up spyware advertising box that modifies your searches for overpriced Scamazon purchases and is a waste of time.
It is not accurate and appears to be a paid partnered advertiser for Amazon. Everything I Searched for lead me to the Amazon website, even though they were more expensive that other sites. One item that I searched for showed that the item was $4.29 on Amazon and $8.39 on Ebay. The only problem is they forgot to mention the $4.99 for shipping on Amazon making the actual price $9.28.
It pops up on pages where I'm not trying to purchase anything, blocks listing views on websites and has no close button to dismiss their app.
Also it's constantly wanting me to sign in so I can use their Capital One credit card to make my purchase, of course off of Amazon. Sorry I've been ripped off way to many times with defective Chinese knockoff garbage from Amazon, and I refuse to buy anything from them making this app totally useless to me.
- by Gemini62167, a month agoRated 3 out of 5Aggravating nuisance. As much as I would like to use this thing, it is more annoying and rarely worth my time and patience.
It pops up continuously, even after clicking it away. Barely three seconds pass and it pops up again - over and over. When you are trying to read about a product, you don't want a large block of print from some poorly executed extension continuously getting in your way!
It's footprint is large, you cannot see behind it, and there does not seem a way to control how or when this pops up. And if there is one, then it is hidden from easy access. That and its occasional problem with asking me to sign in, only to say that my account doesn't exist, or worse... hang. Because of this happening the fist time, I hadn't realized what was going on, so I inadvertently created a second account, thus there are now two different accounts accruing credits instead of just one. It all depends on which account will allow me to sign in that day.
I am not about to chase after, or spend time trying to get help to correct this. Either an extension works the way it should when released, or away it goes.
- by Loquacious1, 3 months agoRated 1 out of 5This has been the WORST experience for me. I just now finally found how to get rid of this bug ridden piece of rot that continuously pestered me to sign in and would never allow me to despite trying for the sake of making it leave me alone! Now I have removed it for good and I hope this was their intended reason for driving me up a wall all this time. There were no 'rewards', it was not useful, it was as far as I can fathom an artifact of another app I once used successfully that was taken over by Capital One. Bad Bad Bad, run now while you can. Install this and remember my words here because you too will regret it. Their last parting shot was "Giving up that easily?" Really?! If I could have, I'd have put a bullet through the head of this program but I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Now I have, you are forever gone Capital ONE, buh bye bye bye!
- by Tallguypa63, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5It works for me, it has saved me quiet a bit of cash and, helped others with it. It really looks like all those fly by night apps but, it is not. I find the communication to be quick and understandable, always. This is not someone that will fail and disappear. This is Capital One.
- by spiercy16, 3 months agoRated 1 out of 5App is in an intrusive, buggy, pos. It pops up on pages where I'm not trying to purchase anything and has no close button to dismiss it. These are amature UI design mistakes that massive companies, like CapitalOne, should never have.
- by Firefox user 17229842, 4 months agoRated 1 out of 5Numerous times I felt I didn't get my rewards. Finally tracked a bigger one for a Garmin watch. Didn't get my reward. Unsure why, won't bother contacting them.
For eBay it shows 5% off in the popup but on their page it shows 0.5%. Misleading.
Just a shady experience overall at this point.
- by Broffrey, 4 months agoRated 1 out of 5Avoid this kind of useless shop-savings extensions that in facts can spy what you are looking on the internet, it's just collecting informations on you to profile you and similar customers to finally target ads/products/services. That's desguished spyware in counterpart to provide you a pretended nice service for free.
And just about the service provided: this kind of extensions (lots of similar exist like this one) can modify the webpages on-the-fly and also can censure some parts or search results to guide you to buy to a specific shop... instead of a concurrent. And guess who is paying the extension editor to do that? Sellers?
Just look at what this extension is requiring at the Permissions part...
Mind again before adding browser extensions!
- by Javier, 6 months agoRated 1 out of 5You can maybe find coupons that still work about 30% of the time if that. Do not bother with using this if you think you'll get rewards from your purchases outside of the standard 1% or whatever your card offers. I've not received a single penny from the rewards offered through the extension. The only redeeming part of the extension and CapitalOne Shopping itself is the price comparison except when it inevitably links to a used product on ebay.
