Have you tried these money-saving Chrome browser extensions?
You’ve probably been there, you’re shopping online, about to check out, and then realize oh wait, maybe there’s a coupon code to make this cheaper? So you open up another browser tab and start searching for a coupon code.
If you’re lucky, you find one within a few minutes but then you still have to copy the coupon code and go back to your other browser tab and paste it in.
Or maybe you’ve already checked out, and then you realized there may have been a coupon for that purchase! Nothing is worse than knowing you could have saved money.
Even if you consider yourself a savvy shopper and you always search for coupon codes and go through cashback sites before you shop, wouldn’t it be great to shop online and not have to start at one website and copy and paste coupon codes in each time you shop?
Well, now you don’t have to. Many coupon and cashback websites are now creating Chrome browser extensions. Don’t use Chrome as your browser? Most of these extensions are available on other browsers as well.
This article may contain affiliate or referral links that compensate us for referrals.
What are these Chrome browser extensions?
These money-saving Chrome extensions will sit right in your browser and let you know when savings are available. They are super simple to install and only take a minute.
You can get cash back and save money instantly without having to leave the website you’re on. Oh, and they’re free and some even give you a bonus for signing up ($10 usually).
Below is a list of nine of my favorites. Give them a try and see which one you like best.
BROWSER EXTENSIONS THAT SAVE YOU MONEY
1. Capital One Shopping
Don’t worry Capital One Shopping is completely free for everyone (Capital One customer or not)!
The free Capital One Shopping browser add-on instantly searches for available coupons and automatically applies them to your cart across thousands of sites and it doesn’t slow down your shopping experience.
When it finds codes, it then tests them to make sure they work and automatically applies available coupon codes to your purchase. That saves you money and a lot of time typing in codes that may not work.
The best part?
Even if discounts or better prices aren’t available, you can still enjoy rewards. You’ll earn Capital One Shopping Rewards while you shop, then you redeem those rewards for gift cards at dozens of top retailers. Even without the discounts, you’re getting more from every dollar you spend by using this.
Just add Capital One Shopping and let the savings begin. Capital One Shopping is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, & Safari. They even have a mobile price comparison tool!
2. SwagButton from Swagbucks
The SwagButton is a brand new Chrome extension from Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a site that lets you earn FREE gift cards for taking surveys, watching videos, shopping online and so much more. It’s free to join and you can get a $10 bonus!
With the SwagButton you can find out right away if the website you’re visiting offers Swagbucks (SB) for shopping. You can also activate Swagbucks Shop & Earn opportunities with the click of a button, right from the store’s or brand’s website.

3. BeFrugal Add-On
The BeFrugal.com Add-On is a Chrome extension that helps you save with online, restaurant, and in-store printable coupons, and earns you cashback when you shop online.
It features coupons for 50,000+ online stores and restaurants and earns you an average of 7% cash back on 5,000+ online stores.

The Honey Chrome Extension finds and applies every available coupon code for you at checkout, so you don’t have to search for a coupon ever again.
Honey will automatically detect the savings. Shop on Amazon? Honey detects savings opportunities on Amazon and shows you the lowest price of all the sellers!
You only need 1000 Gold Rewards to cash out for a $10 gift card!
5. Rakuten Chrome Extension
Rakuten (formerly Ebates) is by far one of my favorite cashback programs. Check out my full Rakuten review.
Rakuten is free to join and you get a $10 bonus for signing up!
When you download the Rakuten Chrome Browser extension you will automatically see cashback alerts when shopping in your Chrome browser, compare store cash back amounts when searching, and save even more money with the Rakuten coupon code finder.
It’s a great way to never forget to go through Rakuten before you shop! Definitely a money saver and money maker.
I’ve made over $804 with Rakuten so far and I don’t shop that much. Sign up here.
Now, this next one will save you money by stopping you from impulse buying! When I found this I thought it was very unique and worth adding to the list. Sometimes we just need to be stopped from making a purchase.
Earny is a really cool free money-saving browser extension that gives you up to 20% back on your purchases plus so much more.
Not only can you get cashback but Earny will also track price history and give you real-time alerts when a price goes lower.
What I love about Earny is that you also get price protection which will help you get a refund if there’s a price drop on something you already bought! How cool is that?
I am loving that my favorite way to get discounted gift cards is now offering a Chrome Browser extension!
This one is really a great all-in-one Chrome extension because it helps you save with coupons AND earn cashback when you pay with their discounted gift cards!
If you want to check them out use my referral link and get $5 added to your account when you signup! Then go ahead and download their Chrome extension and start saving money when you shop online!
Yes, my favorite coupon app now has a Chrome browser extension! If you have been following the blog for some time you should already know I love Ibotta as it was one of the first coupon apps I started using.
