How to outsmart Amazon and pay the lowest price every time

Think you’re already getting the best prices? You’ll be surprised.

Amazon has an enormous selection and cheap prices, so its no wonder that it’s one of the most popular online shopping destinations. However, the Amazon system makes it nearly impossible for the average shopper to compare prices and get the best possible deal. Even a careful shopper can get tricked into paying too much. Just think about it: Amazon has no reason to be more transparent with pricing because the more you spend, the more money they make!

Luckily, there’s an easy way to outsmart the Amazon marketplace and ensure you pay the lowest price every time you shop: Honey. This nifty browser add-on gained popularity among shoppers for its automatic coupon feature, but it also offers powerful Amazon shopping tools that can save you TONS of money. And, yes, it works with Prime!

Here’s how it works:

Shop on Amazon as usual. Visit any product page and Honey will check to make sure the price displayed is truly the lowest price available. In just a blink of the eye, Honey takes into account sales tax, shipping costs, seller rating, and Prime status. If it finds a better deal, a little orange tag will show how much you can save. I’ve found savings ranging from $.02 to hundreds of dollars—not bad considering it takes zero effort. In the case of this coffee table, Honey was able to find $63.44 in savings, and all I had to do was click.

This is how easy it was for me to save $17.50 on a red Keurig, simply by going with another Amazon seller:

10 seconds to save $17.50, and I still get the same 2-day shipping and fulfillment by Amazon. Same coffee maker, same shipping, just cheaper!

Sometimes the displayed price is actually the lowest price, and in which case, Honey tells you. Either way, you’ll feel confident knowing you didn’t get ripped off! Over time, your savings can really add up if you shop on Amazon frequently.
