Now that Apple Pay has so many options, making payments is smoother and more secure than ever before. But that’s no reason to pay more than you have to when making purchases online. Capital One Shopping is offering a free and easy way to save money while shopping online even if you aren’t a Capital One customer.

After unsuccessfully searching for discount codes so many more times than finding one that works, it’s tempting to just give up trying to find your products at a cheaper price. Well, now you no longer have to choose between saving money and saving time.

Installing the Capital One Shopping desktop browser extension only takes seconds and works with all major browsers. It allows you to save with just one click by automatically adding discount and coupon codes to the items in your cart, which is a big help all by itself, but it also helps you to save time and money in other ways. 

When you look at a product page on Amazon or Target, you will be automatically notified if that item is available at a cheaper price from a different website. If it is, you will be provided with a link as well as different shipping prices. This means you won’t have to pay more than necessary when you buy.

You can also create a Watchlist and add products to it, so that you will be notified when their prices go down. It’s even possible to see a timeline of the prices of a product over the course of 12 months.

All of these features combined make Capital One Shopping a virtually effortless way to save, but one of the most important features of the service is that you can accumulate Capital One Shopping Rewards with each purchase. These can be redeemed as online gift cards. Basically, that means you are not only saving when you buy, you are earning toward future purchases at the same time.

It’s really never been easier to stop overpaying online. Now you can save both time and money with just one click, by using the app or with a simple installation of the Capital One Shopping extension on your browser. Since millions of users on the Chrome Web Store have given it a 5-star average rating, you know it works.
