Shopping extensions and add-ons for browsers

Being on a more limited income as a retired person, and having more time to research things, I am more interested than ever in paying less when I can for the same product.

Recently, I have found that several things I have bought routinely on Amazon have gone up in price significantly. For example, I used to pay about $36 for one product. Now the price is almost $43. I have found it at another site for about $33. All include shipping in the price. Another product I put in my cart went up almost 10% in less than 48 hours. Perhaps a coincidence, but I am wondering.

What shopping extensions and add-on software do you use to find the best prices when shopping on-line?

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.

I use The Camelizer to check the price history of Amazon, BestBuy and Newegg items. You can also use it to set an alert when the price drops on an item you're interested in.

Numbers is hard.

I also use camel at Amazon price tracker, Amazon price history charts, price watches, and price drop alerts. |

It often pays to be patient. You can set price targets and have it notify you when it's hit.
