To land the best price when you’re shopping online, be sure to use all of the tools at your disposal. Here are several online shopping tools and price comparison sites we like:

Sites such as CouponSherpa.com and RetailMeNot.com have coupons for a wide variety of products. Instead of taking the time to hunt down discount codes every time you shop online, install a deal-finding tool to do the research for you. PriceBlink, a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari, stays invisible until you visit a website where it detects savings. You’ll be alerted with a list of ways to save money, including coupon codes, free shipping, price reductions and membership discounts. Plus, when you click on a specific product, another alert will pop up flagging retailers that carry the same product for a lower price.

Honey, a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari, also scans the web for coupons while you shop at supported retailers, and it will automatically apply them at checkout (click on the “save money” pop-up). If coupons cannot be combined, it will choose the one that saves you the most. At Amazon, Honey finds the lowest price for a product among all sellers.

PriceGrabber.com can help you compare prices across sites. For prescriptions, visit GoodRX.com to compare prices at local pharmacies and print coupons good for up to 80% off. Daily deal sites Groupon.com and LivingSocial.com can also help you snag discounts for products, travel and restaurants. But instead of waiting to receive the daily e-mails, search the sites while you’re shopping. Recent deals at Groupon included half-off electronic gift cards for CVS, Dunkin’ Donuts, Toys “R” Us and Uber, as well as local restaurants and services.
