As posted on This Browser Extension Tracks Price Drops on Amazon
Chrome: I hate couponing but I love saving money, which is why I’m a fan of Honey, a browser extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout. Even better, they just released an update that lets you track price drops on Amazon.
For now, the update only works on desktops and with Chrome extension 9.9.4 and above. (The extension itself works with Safari, Firefox, and Opera) Hopefully, they’ll roll out the update to everyone soon, though, because it’s pretty great. On any Amazon product page, a little Honey icon will show up that asks you if you want to add the item to your DropList (see image above). Just click that button, and Honey will now track the item for you for a certain time period and notify you as soon as its price drops so you can buy when the price is low.
The default tracking period is thirty days, but they’ll email you beforehand if you want to keep watching. You do have to sign up for a Honey account, and then if you want to access your DropList, you can head to their website, log in, then navigate to DropList. It works the same way other price tracking tools do (like CamelCamelCamel), but I like that Honey now does double duty: I use it to automate couponing anyway, so this is just one more feature that always ensures that I get the best deal.
Not everyone has had the same luck with Honey—some of you have tried it only to report that it’s never found coupons for you—but I’ve scored some pretty big savings with it. It works best with larger retailers that are likely to have coupon codes in the first place. If you’ve given up on it, this update might be a good reason to give it another try (but again, other price tracking tools will do the job, too).
If you already use the extension, you’ll see the new feature next time you browse Amazon. If you’re not a Honey user, you can sign up from the link below, then download the extension for your browser. The app is available on the desktop versions of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Opera.
