3 Tools Every Online Shopper Needs to Find the Best Deals

shopping

Online shopping has its perks – the convenience, variety, and immediacy of it all can’t be highlighted enough, but there are a few things that require some secret hacks: knowing when the sales or price-drops are coming, how to score discounts, and the best way to get the goods to your door. We’ve found three apps that will give you an edge to make you the ultimate deal-hunter and cyber-shopper.

HONEY

HONEY

Honey is a Google Chrome extension that scours the web, databases, newsletters, and social media for any coupons or discount codes associated with an online store you’re currently shopping on. So, for example, if you’re about to purchase some sneakers, you can hit the Honey button before paying, and have any discount codes applied to your cart before checking out. Honey finds discounts for over 30,000 merchants from various retail industries, so there’s a fair chance that your favourite shops are covered on their discount radar.

What’s even better is that Honey has its own built-in Droplist, allowing you to keep tabs on prices of items you’re after, and receive notifications when those prices change. Also, if you’re shopping on Amazon, it has an integrated comparison tool, so you can check the various deals from sellers on Amazon.

So, if you want to hit up the big international retailers, whether it be Amazon or Forever21, Honey will help save you some much-needed Rands during these times. Of course, getting that now-discounted product to SA is the next hurdle.

DISTILL

DISTILL

Distill Web Monitor is a really handy online tool, which is used to monitor changes on webpages; however, it works really well when it comes to monitoring price changes. All you do is create an account or install the extension on your browser, pop in the URL of the product you’re in the market for, select the price as the variable you’re monitoring, and boom – Distill will keep an eye on the webpage, and notify you via email or a pop-up if the price changes.

You can even set certain amounts to receive notifications or specify how often you’d like Distill to scan the webpage. Of course, this works amazingly when monitoring overseas deals, sales, and product prices on international online stores (you know, with us being out of the loop with communication from international retailers). So, if you’re trying to keep tabs on when Asos, BestBuy, or other US or UK retailers are having sales, this tool will work for you. Of course, getting that now-discounted product to SA is the next hurdle.
