Amazon vs. Walmart vs. Capital One Shopping
After setting up Capital One Shopping on my laptop (it’s also available as a mobile app), I started browsing for stuff on Amazon like I usually would.
Every time I brought up an item, a notification from Capital One Shopping told me whether I could find it for a better price at another store. I also had the option to compare directly with the prices at other big retailers, like Macy’s.
I assumed Amazon or maybe Walmart would generally be the best option. Most of the time, I was wrong.
Here are some of the savings I found, ranging from $8.34 on a Lego set to $87.44 on an espresso maker.

A few other items I looked at, like a portable blender and a Godzilla Blu-Ray box set, were in fact cheapest at Amazon or Walmart.
But in total, I was able to save $461.24 just by taking 30 seconds to install Capital One Shopping on my browser.
That’s a lot more than I expected; it almost makes me want to buy some of this stuff for my coworkers. Almost.
