Black Friday: Best Apps & Tools to Track Price-Drops


With Black Friday on the horizon this November, it’s always a good opportunity to brush up on your deal-hunting and sale-finding skills, and we’ve got three great ways to help you capitalise on the best specials going down this year.


Honey is a Google Chrome extension which scours the web, databases, newsletters, and social media for any coupons or discount codes associated with an online store you’re currently shopping on. So, for example, if you’re about to purchase some sneakers, you can hit the Honey button before paying, and have any discount codes applied to your cart before checking out. Honey finds discounts for over 30,000 merchants from various retail industries, so there’s a far chance that your favourite shops are covered on their discount-radar.

Distill Web Monitor is a really handy online tool, which is used to monitor changes on webpages; however, it works really well when it comes to monitoring price-changes. All you do is create an account or install the extension on your browser, pop in the URL of the product you’re in the market for, select the price as the variable you’re monitoring, and boom – Distill will keep an eye on the webpage, and notify you via email or a pop-up if the price changes.

Utilise PriceCheck

PriceCheck, who has been an industry leader in price comparison and product discovery, is the best spot to check out all the big retailers’ Black Friday deals. It curates and combines hundreds of online and physical stores across SA, allowing you to compare their offerings this shopping season so that you can find the very-best price before making a decision.

If you want to keep an eye on the Black Friday deals going around, then PriceCheck should be your home – they’ll be keeping track of specials from these stores and many others on the day and will make it easy for you to find the best savings possible!
