10 Great Money Saving Add-ons for Firefox

Firefox Add-ons to Save You Cash We can’t count on Uncle Sam to get us out of our economic woes, so who can we trust?  I say trust Firefox. It has never asked for a penny, and is always so reliable. With that said, what Firefox add-ons out there will help you save some money?  Here are my favorites:

RetailMeNot – Never miss a bargain again. Automatically informs you of sites that retailmenot.com users have shared discount coupon codes for.

Woot Watcher – Woot Watcher monitors the Woot! web site, and keeps you updated with the current item, price, and if it is sold out.

Price Protectr Toolbar – Price protect your purchases with a single click! Watch and target prices, find coupons, get retailer ratings, and improve your online shopping experience.

PriceDrop – An extension which helps you track Amazon product prices and get notifications when they drop.

PriceAdvance – Get price comparisons as you shop around the Web, so you can get the best deal.

Forex Currency Converter – Just click on any currency data on any web page to convert that amount across over 180 foreign exchange rates right on your screen.

KeepCash Coupon Notifier – Lightweight Firefox extension to notify you when online coupons exist for a site that you are shopping at.

Pronto Shopping Messenger – Instant price comparisons when you shop online via a small message window that alerts you of potential savings.

BuyBuddy – Locate products on those pages that are offered through Amazon and ‘tag’ them.

MoneyQuake – Moneyquake is a extension, which displays your real-time earning statistics from most popular advertisement systems (such as Google AdSense).

Know of another add-on that helps you keep a ‘bit more of the green stuff in your wallet?  If so, drop it into the comments.  We will just consider this an economic stimulus for us Firefox fans.

CashAddOn – Seems Like a Scam

CashAddOnLooking to make a little green for shopping with a select number of stores Online? One new extension hopes you do – and its name is CashAddOn. This extension and the web site that goes along with it while promoting a “good deal” seems a little fishy to me.

They list percentages on their web site of how much you can make, but the terms of service seems to argue that these numbers actually might be lower. Also a “cash back” deal seems to be reject-able at any time since they say the stores can thumbs up it or thumbs down it at any time.

If for any reason the affiliate site does not process the expected funds from the purchase, we will not offer the cash back to our members. The amount listed on the ‘Store’ page and estimated values, and we do not commit to offering these amounts.

Last but not least we have another place tracking your shopping via a cookie in the browser. So if privacy is a big concern of yours – you might want to look elsewhere for your cheap ways to make some dough.

On the hopefully positive side – it is on the Mozilla Addons web site, so one hopes it made it through some sort of “sniff test”.

Maybe time will tell with this place, but for some reason something just doesn’t smell right with this extension. Maybe I’m just a little paranoid about the money for nothing deals. Then again, I am still waiting for that punched out monkey to deliver my iPod too.

Extensions That Will Save You Cash

Hey we all like to pinch pennies every once in a while, right?

For those of you out there who are still using Internet Explorer, there is another option that won’t open your computer to all sorts of security holes. Better yet, it will automatically kill most pop-up windows and, when you switch to it, it will incorporate all of your bookmarks from Internet Explorer. I switched years ago and it’s the best thing I ever did; in fact, I now get frustrated when I have to use Internet Explorer on other machines.
