Rakuten is mostly known for its cash-back offers, but you can also use this extension for quickly finding and applying coupons to your online purchases. The savings aren’t just for a handful of online retailers, either. With this extension, you’ll have access to cash-back at over 3,500 store websites. Need more savings than just coupons? You can also activate its cash-back offers or use its Price Magic feature, which finds you lower prices for the items you’re shopping for.

The Honey extension boasts over 10,000,000 users and a five-star rating on the Chrome Web Store — it’s not hard to see why. It primarily focuses on automatically finding and applying coupons to your online purchases, and it’s able to do so on over 30,000 sites. With those odds, you should have no trouble finding gifts for everyone on your list and saving yourself quite a bit of money. Honey also has a feature called Droplist which tracks the price of items that you add to it and lets you know when the price drops.

RetailMeNot Deal Finder

The RetailMeNot Deal Finder is another solid coupon code browser extension option. Like the others on this list, it searches for promo codes as you shop online and applies them for you. And like Honey, it has a vast number of supported stores: Over 20,000, in fact. Some of those stores include restaurants and food delivery services like DoorDash too. So if you find yourself getting hungry after a long day of online shopping, you might save money on your next meal as well.

The Wii Shop Channel music is beloved, and underneath the memes and 10-hour YouTube loops are memories of browsing the Virtual Console selection for hours on end.

And you can have that same experience in your browser. The Wii Shop Channel Music extension adds the theme to any retail website, and it helps ease the anxiety of endlessly clicking to fill time. And let's be honest, it's just downright cool.
