dealnews Browser Extensions Now Available for Firefox & Chrome

Discount Notifier Helps Consumers Conveniently Find Online Deals from their Favorite Retailers


HUNTSVILLE, AL (November 21, 2011)dealnews.com, the premier year-round resource for online deals on consumer electronics, gadgets, computers, apparel, and more, today launched free extensions for Chrome and Firefox Internet browsers, giving shoppers instant access to the best deals and discounts available while they shop online.

Once installed in Firefox or Chrome browsers, the dealnews notifier brings the savings to online shoppers directly, alerting consumers of active discounts on the retail websites they are currently browsing. The dealnews notifier is an invaluable resource for consumers looking for the best deals and discounts on the web.

In five steps, online shoppers can save money with the dealnews notifier. Here is how it works:
  1. Download and activate the notifier. Consumers can download the notifier in minutes by visiting dealnews.com/apps/browser-plugins
    • If you’re using Firefox, you may need to activate the dealnews notifier by going to View>Toolbars>Add-on bar. This will ensure that add-on bar at the bottom of the browser is always visible and deals are always just a click away.

    • Chrome users do not require manual activation.

  2. Browse your favorite sites. While surfing your favorite online stores, a notification will appear in your browser, informing you of how many coupons and discounts are currently available for the site.

  3. View the coupons and deals.
    • Firefox users can expose deals in two ways, either by clicking the “view deals” button at the top of the browser, or the dealnews logo that will appear at the bottom of the browser add-on bar.

    • Shoppers using Chrome can simply click on the dealnews icon at the top of their browser to see which savings are available.

  4. Activate the discount.With the dealnews notifier open, shoppers will see either the “activate” or “copy code” buttons next to each discount. Clicking “activate” will take consumers straight to the deal on the site. Selecting the “copy code” button will save the code to your clipboard, so that it can be used later at checkout. Should the coupon be for “in-store only” purchases only, shoppers can download and print applicable coupons.

  5. Checkout and save.Once you’re ready to buy, if the coupon has not already been automatically applied to your shopping cart, you can easily paste the code into the required fields. If not, all you need to do is complete your order and enjoy the savings.

The Chrome and Firefox browser extensions are the latest tools available from dealnews that help shoppers get the most value for their money. The company also offers shopping resources for iPhone and Android devices, including the dealnews app.
