I was asked to check out PriceBlink.com and share my experience with all of you. What is PriceBlink.com, you may ask?
PriceBlink is an add-on for your browser that “automatically finds lower prices and money-saving coupons from thousands of retailers while you shop. PriceBlink stays hidden until you are shopping.”- excerpt from PriceBlink website
Let's see how this works. From their homepage, I just clicked on a big banner that says “Add to Firefox”, easy as pie! I see that this application is also available for Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer.
I went ahead and followed the prompts to Add-On this application to my browser. Wow, that was quick it installed in less than 5 seconds. Ready to SHOP!
Since I'm shopping for a birthday gift for my nephew, I click on Kohl's.com. In an instant I see a small PriceBlink toolbar on my screen that says, there is a 20% off coupon available for any Kohl's order. SWEET! I love to save money, and wouldn't have known about this coupon otherwise. There is an arrow, that if I click also shows me a few other coupons I can use, “Free Shipping with $50 order” or “Extra 15% off A2 Sandals and Shoes” - good to know.
When I clicked on the banner that told me about the 20% off coupon, it went directly to a PriceBlink page that said it copied the coupon code to my clipboard. So, I went ahead with my shopping and found a pair of swim shorts and super soaker water gun for my nephew who loves to play outdoors during the summer.
When I viewed the product (water gun) on Kohl's, a PriceBlink toolbar appears that says “View All Prices” - when clicked it displayed the various prices for the same item at Amazon, Target, Toys R Us and more. Hey, looks like Kohl's is actually giving me a great price for this item!
I went ahead and began the check out process, and found that the coupon code wasn't automatically entered into my shopping bag upon checkout, but that's okay because the PriceBlink toolbar was still active upon check out, and I easily copied and pasted the 20% off coupon into my cart. IT WORKED!
I saved a whole $5 bucks on my total order, thanks to PriceBlink, and found that I got the best deal since no other stores carried the items for less!
At the end of my PriceBlink shopping experience, I had money saved and my mind was resting at ease, knowing I got the best deal out there today!
Thanks PriceBlink, you're my new favorite online shopping buddy!
