Been using it for quite awhile.
It's legit, but lots/most of referrals to Wally's & ebay, but all referrals are cheaper than current Beezer's pricing, otherwise it shows "Best Price".

Legit sure, but you’re probably handing over a treasure trove of shopping data.

I'm about ready to uninstall it because it opens on the Amazon page and gets in my way. It's not too big but it's there. They show better deals but some have been on sites I have no familiarity with and so I'm reticent to buy there.

I've tried a lot of these shopping extensions, and I find they all are more trouble than they're worth. Seems like they slow down my browsers by a lot. I reverted to the old standby of Retailmenot site and looking for coupons/discounts there. Sometimes just hitting the "shopping" function on a search engine.

There was one that gave me some kind of "coins" or "gold" for rewards (Honey maybe?) and I found this puzzling and annoying. When I [care enough to] remember, I will also just hit slickdeals and look for discounts there as well. YMMV.

For any purchases worth a little extra effort, just plug in the Amazon URL at camelcamelcamel and then if you still aren't confident that you're able to judge whether you're getting the best price at the moment, do a Google shopping search to see how much others are paying.

Thanks, good idea. I always forget about camel.

Sounds about the same as Honey.

It has always annoyed me that their offers are integrated into credit card and banking products as if it is a special account feature or reward/benefit. Even though I use some of those products, I've always steered clear.
