We’re all doing a lot more online shopping these days. New quarantine sweatpants? Add to Amazon cart. Noise-canceling headphones for your home office? Thanks, Amazon!
Here’s the thing though: You’re probably overpaying.
We always assume Amazon has the best price, but oftentimes, there are way better deals hiding out there. If you’re not tracking them down, you’re probably getting gouged.
But a free service called Wikibuy notifies you any time you’re shopping on Amazon and are about to get ripped off.
How to Automatically Find Out if You’re Overpaying
Once you download Wikibuy, it’ll automatically compare prices for you while you’re shopping online.
Before you check out, it’ll check other websites, including Walmart, Target, eBay and others to see if your item is available for cheaper. It will also show you coupon codes, set up price-drop alerts and even let you see the item’s price history.
Plus, it works even when you’re not shopping on Amazon. Even on other websites, Wikibuy looks for coupons, promo codes and discounts it can apply to your order. It compiles data from its 4 million users. If a promo code has worked for another shopper, Wikibuy copies it to your order to save you money.
Never Overpay Again
Let’s say you’re shopping for a new TV. You’re ready to check out, and you assume you’re getting the best price. Here’s when Wikibuy will pop up and let you know if you’re about to overpay. It will even let you know if you can get it delivered sooner.
So far, Wikibuy has saved users more than $70 million.
You can get started with Wikibuy in just a few minutes to see if you’re overpaying online.
