Make Online Shopping Easier With This Genius Extension

This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Scrolling through the internet's myriad digital boutiques for profane t-shirts and ridiculous home decor might seem like a mindless activity, but that's only true if you're willing to just pay whatever tells you to. There are coupons and codes all over the place in here, so you'd be a fool not to take advantage, but actually finding them can turn what should be a fun and slightly irresponsible afternoon into banal drudgery. All that can change starting today with the Capital One Shopping extension.

This bargain shopping helper is like bringing along a friend who's almost troublingly obsessed with getting deals: It saves you money without you lifting a finger. As soon as you install it on your browser, the extension will do the hard work of scouring the Internet for coupons from email lists, social media, and anywhere else they can be found. Capital One Shopping will even take note of something as simple as an Amazon search for a particular product and notify you if someone else is selling it cheaper. You can also opt to receive price drop notifications for items you've been eyeing. Don't check in every day to see if that Pokemon holiday sweater has gone on sale yet -- let Capital One Shopping do it for you.

But that's just the beginning of all the ways Capital One Shopping has your back. It'll input your credit card information so you don't have to get up and risk rethinking your purchase on the long walk to get your card, and once you've accumulated enough Capital One Shopping Rewards, you'll be able to redeem them for gift cards at popular stores such as Groupon, eBay, or Staples. You don't even need to be a Capital One customer to use the extension; it's available for literally anyone to add to their browser. Best of all, it's completely free.

Signing up couldn't be easier -- all you have to do is head to the Capital One Shopping site, provide some basic information, and install the add-on to your browser. In under five minutes, you'll be shopping with your own personal tightwad.
