Q.1 What is PriceBlink?
PriceBlink is a coupon & price comparison site with a integrated web browser add-on. With the PriceBlink add-on you get access to price comparison services, plus coupons for thousands of retailers.
Q.2 What is the PriceBlink Browser Add-On?
The PriceBlink add-on is a plug-in for your Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer Safari browser that discreetly notifies you if the product you are browsing is available for a lower price from another retailer, or if there are coupons available from the retailer you are shopping on. The message bar also provides easy access to product review information so that you can quickly determine whether or not to make a purchase. In order to see the PriceBlink in action, please check out our video demo at http://youtu.be/UKxMx5bT-QM
Q.4 Is the PriceBlink add-on secure?
Yes. The PriceBlink add-on does not capture, collect or share any personal information. The PriceBlink add-on works to get you pricing, coupon and product review information and that is it -- no spyware, adware.
Q.5 What user information does PriceBlink collect?
Q.7 I am shopping and the PriceBlink notification does not come up. Is there something wrong?
Don't worry, there are a few reasons that the message bar doesn't show up. The PriceBlink add-on is designed to be discreet, and therefore only shows up when there is relevant information to the product you are shopping for.
The PriceBlink message bar will not show up if there are not retailer coupons or product price comparison available. Even though the PriceBlink add-on provides information from thousands of retailers, we do not have universal retailer coverage, so it is possible that you are on a site that the PriceBlink add-on does not currently work with.
In certain cases, it is possible that the PriceBlink add-on was not able to determine what the product you are looking at is. We are working hard to improve the system all the time, so if you come across a problem, please feel free to contact us.

Q.8 I found a better price at another retailer. What is wrong?
We are working to add retailers to the system all the time, but we do not have universal coverage so it is possible that we are missing the retailer you are looking at. If you find a lower price on a product, you can send us feedback right from the toolbar by clicking on the "Send us feedback" link at the bottom of the list of prices.
Q.11 What markets does the PriceBlink work in?
The PriceBlink.com site and add-on are currently targeted at the United States marketplace. We are considering adding additional markets, but are focused on perfecting the PriceBlink experience for U.S. users at this point.
Q.13 Is there a way to turn coupon notifications off? I don't need to see coupons for [xyz] retailer.
Yes. If you would rather not have coupon notifications appear for a particular merchant, you can easily turn notifications off (this feature is not yet available for the IE version of PriceBlink). To do this, simply click on the "View coupons" button in the toolbar, and then select "Hide Coupons for This Merchant" at the bottom of the list. If you ever want to see coupons again for that merchant, just look at the bottom of your browser (Firefox Only) for the flashlight icon. When it is green, that means there are coupons available. Just click on that link and you'll see available coupons.
Q.14 I really appreciate PriceBlink, how can I help?
The more users we have at PriceBlink, the better the service works, so spread the word to friends and family about PriceBlink.com and the PriceBlink add-on. Because we are still developing the service, we want to hear from you, our users. Feel free to contact us with suggestions, or cases where our system didn't work quite you as expected. We look forward to working with you to make PriceBlink the best shopping experience on the internet.
