Have you ever spent way too much time comparison shopping online hunting down the best deal? Or have you ever forgotten to comparison shop, only to discover a much better deal after you have placed your order? If you want the best deal with the least amount of effort, check out Invisible Hand.
Invisible Hand is an Add-on to Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari browsers that alerts you to better deals online. Invisible Hand runs in the background, you won’t notice it unless you are shopping online or search for a product in a search engine such as Google.
When you search for a product, either at an online shopping website or through a search engine such as Google, Invisible Hand automatically searches to see whether there is a better price elsewhere. If it finds a better price, a yellow bar pops up at the top of your screen under your toolbar to show the better price.
In the example above, Invisible Hand popped up to let me know that the DVD for The Big Lebowski is $15.01 cheaper at NBC Universal Store than at Barnes & Noble. If you click on the drop-down menu, you can see prices for the DVD at seven other stores. Invisible Hand doesn’t always calculate Shipping and Handling charges, so viewing other retailers’ prices is very useful.
The yellow bar also gives you the option of seeing related items and reviews. For this movie, the related items included the Limited Edition, the Widescreen Collector’s Edition, non-Blu-Ray editions, and other related movies. The reviews ranged from a review of the added scenes on the DVD to a review of the movie itself.
Invisible Hand offers real-time prices. The list of prices refreshes every time you use it, so you’re not wasting your time with expired deals.
Invisible Hand was recently updated to include searches for airline flights. Invisible Hand will not only show you the cheapest flights, it will also show you the most direct flights. Invisible Hand can also check hotels and rental cars for you as well.
As with its shopping feature, Invisible Hand shows a yellow bar when you search for a flight. The bar will show you the lowest price, along with a drop-down menu for alternative flights. The menu allows you to see alternative flight prices, schedules and the duration of the flights.
