GOOGLE introduces a brand new feature to help online shoppers save hard cash.
The tech giant is now showing users discount codes directly for any product listings they see.
You usually have to hunt for coupons yourself, but this latest development should make it a lot easier for bargain-hungry shoppers.
And it couldn’t come at a better time as the current cost-of-living crisis is in full swing.
Codes appear when the person selects an item marked “Special Offer”.
Previously, Google only flagged items that were on sale or had their price reduced.
The change means that the codes on offer can simply be copied and pasted for use at the store’s checkout.
Google says the feature will be rolled out “in the coming weeks.”
But it’s not the only big change focused on shopping.
Another handy feature is pricing information, so consumers can train whether they’re getting a good deal or not.
It shows you how a retailer’s price compares to others.
And it also indicates whether the price of this product is low, typical or high.
Another improvement is the ability to compare offers side-by-side.
This means that if you’re looking for a women’s puffer coat, for example, Google will show you a side-by-side comparison of available puffer coat deals right in your results, so you don’t have to spend as much time researching.
