All the Ways Microsoft Edge Saved My Holiday Shopping (& Sanity)

Read next


One of our editors, Kate Loweth, took Microsoft Edge, a browser loaded with built-in shopping tools, for a test run for her holiday shopping. Here’s what she found:

The holidays are expensive. There, I said it. As a mom with three kids in the tween and teen years, I know full well that it’s no longer about the number of toys under the tree but instead, it has morphed into them asking for high-priced electronics and gift cards.

Saving is at the top of my list this year as I’m not about to spend my whole paycheck to put loot under the tree. Lucky for me, Microsoft Edge gifted me $250 to try out their browser with my shopping. Here’s the 411 on how this browser seamlessly assisted with my holiday shopping and helped me save along the way. Trust me, you’ll want to make it part of your shopping routine all year long!

The Shopping Features Are There as Soon as You Download the Browser

Shopping via the Microsoft Edge browser is super easy and you know what you are buying is the best deal out there. I was looking for a Fitbit for my 10-year-old and was checking out options that were available at Target. When I navigated to the page for the Fitbit Ace 3, the price comparison feature showed me that there was a lower price available on another website. Turns out the savings was only 4 cents on eBay so I stuck with Target for my purchase. I was happy to know that no major discount was out there and I was getting it at a reasonable price. Gone are the days when you have to shop around to find the lowest price.

Am I Getting a Good Deal? Yes

Next up on my shopping list was Just Dance 2022 for the Nintendo Switch. Target had this at $49.99 but Microsoft Edge let me know that it was available for $29.83 on Amazon. Score! When I navigated over to Amazon to make my purchase, Microsoft Edge showed me that this price was pretty stable over the last 6 months and I was getting a good deal. Go me! Knowing the historical pricing data without having to check another website is a handy feature.

Original Price Price: $49.99

Price with Microsoft Edge: $29.83

Savings: $20.16



Making a big purchase? Reviews can offer insight into what is the best option for your needs. Microsoft Edge captures ratings and reviews from multiple sources and brings them to you without you having to navigate away from the item you are considering. Click, check out the review and feel comfortable with your order. It’s that easy.

It Finds the Deals for You

As a self-proclaimed coupon addict, I am well versed in the couponing world. I know all the websites to go to that gather up coupon codes. Microsoft Edge makes this whole process so much easier as it scours the web for all available coupons for you while you shop. Since it’s built in, you don’t have to add any connections.

My husband needs a new carry-on suitcase so I checked out Amazon for options. I found this one and Microsoft Edge told me there was a $10 coupon. Score! Clip and save.

Regular Price: $89.99

Price with Microsoft Edge: $79.99

Savings: $10

Checkout Is a Breeze

Last on my list was a “cozy but stylish” jacket for my 12-year-old son who wears almost the same size that I do (when did THAT happen?). I found this bomber jacket with a sherpa lining at Target that checked both boxes and was every tween’s favorite color, black. Because I had set up Microsoft Edge with all my shipping details the last time I shopped, it was ready to autofill when I checked out.

Savings: My time!

The real truth: Microsoft Edge makes shopping so much easier, which is key during this time when orders are being placed at lightning speed. I know that I’m getting the best deal for my purchases and the whole process is a breeze.
