Wallaby’s Chrome Extension Recommends Credit Cards for Online Shopping
Wallaby’s credit card rewards optimization program has now made its way to Google Chrome. The company has developed an extension that tells consumers which credit card to use when shopping online so the rewards are maximized.
The extension works by assessing the shopping page you are on and figuring out which of your credit cards offers the most rewards. It works with a number of big-name merchants, including Staples, eBay, Best Buy and Amazon.
Wallaby started as an all-inclusive program to help you track your credit card rewards. It compiles information about each credit card’s terms of agreement to help you maximize the rewards you get from every dollar you spend. The program also keeps track of due dates and credit limits so you can keep your spending on track.
Shoppers who want to save even more money can use Chrome’s Honey extension to get promo codes for the items they are buying. This may decrease the amount of rewards earned due to the lower price, but it will result in better savings overall.
In addition to developing this extension, Wallaby has updated its iPhone app to recommend credit cards for you to use based on your spending habits. The app now takes foreign transaction fees into consideration when you are shopping online.
