InvisibleHand Ensures That You Shop At the Lowest Prices – Always
By on December 21st, 2009

It isn’t always easy to find the best deals while shopping online. In fact most of us simply check the prices at two or three stores and make the final purchase, without even realising that shop X may be offering a special 20% Christmas discount on the same product.

Last year, we had featured a Firefox extension called FoxyPrices which automatically hunted down the prices for you. Unfortunately, FoxyPrices isn’t yet available for Google Chrome. InvisibleHand is a similar extension which works for Firefox as well as Chrome and supports US, UK and German stores.

InvisibleHand is an install and forget it kind of an extension. Whenever you start browsing a supported online store it will automatically jump into action and begin searching for better deals in the background. You will be notified when a better deal has been found. It also monitors Google searches and steps in if you are searching for a product.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

InvisibleHand-Get-The-Best-PricesI know little about economics and I certainly know anything about Adam Smith’s principle of the Invisible Hand. But, I love anything which can help me save money. And InvisibleHand does just that. Price comparison services are nice and useful. However, what makes InvisibleHand awesome is that it’s completely automated. Its also fairly well executed. It works mostly in the background and is intuitive and unobtrusive. Yes, it does get things wrong sometimes. For example, it isn’t able to differentiate between an iPhone and an iPhone case. But, most of the time it gets things right. InvisibleHand’s biggest strength is that it supports a large number of stores – 50+ US stores, 45+ UK stores and 15 German stores. InvisibleHand has already helped American users save more than 10 million dollars. Give it a try if you want a hassle free way to save money while shopping online.

Techie-Buzz Verdict: 4/5 (Excellent)
