Amazon is a massive marketplace that carries virtually anything you can think of. Amazon is so big that it has now become one of the top shopping search engines on the internet. It is easy to look up products, read reviews, browse categories but one thing that takes up a lot of time is trying to figure out how to find the best deals on Amazon. Sure, you can browse all products, visit them individually and see what they are selling for. Then compare the prices to other marketplaces like manufacturer’s online shops, eBay or other e-commerce sites. That would take forever. Even if you discover that Amazon has the best price, but is it really the best price you could possibly pay for a product? And who has the time to do all that research? No one.
Luckily there are apps and Chrome extensions that will help you make your shopping easier, find the best deals on Amazon and save you time.
