Link to Let Invisible Hand Find Your Best Price new and improved look.


Do you check prices online? Looking for the best price but not sure where to start? Want a “helping hand” to find a better priced flight? Then you need Invisible Hand.

What’s Invisible Hand? It is a browser extension that gets you the lowest prices on the internet for the items you are shopping for. Even airfare!

How does it do that? Invisible Hand searches the web for the best prices on your specified item. Then it lets you know if a better price is available via a button that “pops up” in your upper tool bar. Simply click on this button, and you will be directly linked to that lower price. This is all you need to do:

  1. Shop! Search for your item via Google, a retailer site or a travel site. Invisible Hand works behind the “scenes” tracking down prices.
  2. Save! Invisible Hand “reports back” with the best price, complete with a link to that price, reviews too if they are available.
  3. Buy! Click on the provided link, and the “best price” purchase is yours for the buying.

That’s it. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to find the best prices with Invisible Hand.

Travel Planning? Let Invisible Hand help. Find not only best fare prices and alternative flight options, but hotels and car prices too. It’s such a handy a tool!

Why is there’s no “Invisible Hand” for my search? Invisible Hand doesn’t yet cover all products or every retailer. That being said, Invisible Hand currently supports 647 different retailers and 589 airlines, and it continues to add to this list. Many large retailers already provide a helping hand, including Target, Sears, Toys-R-Us, Best Buy, and Overstock. And with connections to 589 airlines, the odds are, your preferred airline is there too. That’s a lot of savings potentials! Want to know more about Invisible Hand connections? Check out this link for a complete list of Supported Retailers and Airlines.

How do you get Invisible Hand? Download it to your preferred browser. To do this, in the upper right corner of Invisible Hand’s home page, choose your preferred browser. Then click on “Download Now” and you are done. Invisible Hand does everything else!

Is Invisible Hand available worldwide? Sadly, no. It is currently only available in the United States, Great Britain, and Germany.

Want to know more? Here’s a few more features and benefits:

  • It’s free! No membership-required either.
  • Invisible Hand does not “show itself” until it finds a better price.
  • Get real-time prices, not last week’s specials. Prices refresh with each search.
  • It’s Google-useable. Search in Google, and let Invisible Hands search the rest.
  • Hidden prices? No more with Invisible Hand! It finds these too. (U.S. only).

But is Invisible Hand secure to use? Yes! It has passed Mozilla’s safety and security testing. It has also been certified 100% clean by Softpedia. And, it is recommended by Google, also meeting its’ standards. So go on, get your best prices safe and sound.

Invisible Hand does not collect personal, demographic or other identifiable information. It does not store IP addresses nor does it track individual browser activity. It only collects URL’s for the retailers and travel sites it is searching. Click on this link if you would like more about Invisible Hands’ Privacy Policy.

How? It’s easy. Just follow these steps and you’re on the way to your very own loco-priced local deals:

Step One: Become an AmazonLocal member in one of two ways:

  • Existing Amazon.com account holders: Sign in through your Amazon account, same name, same password.
  • New to Amazon? Simply open an Amazon account. All you need is an e-mail address and a password to get started.

All signed in? Time to set up your AmazonLocal account.

Step Two: Let AmazonLocal know the cities for which you want to receive deals. You can do this by entering either a city or a zip code. AmazonLocal then lets you know what your choices are. Choose your city and add it to your AmazonLocal subscription.

Shazaam! You’re in! That’s all it takes to have you ready to cash in on your very own local deals. AmazonLocal does all the work from here, sending you e-mail deal notifications for your selected areas. All you need to do now is sit back and wait for the deals to come your way.

How do you buy an AmazonLocal Deal? You’ve finally found the first local deal just right for you. What are you waiting for? Buy it! And here’s a few tips to help you out:

  • Check the “Time Left To Purchase” display, found under the “Buy” button. Each deal is a limited time only offer. You can’t wait forever to buy the deal.
  • Check it out before you buy. Time permitting, (see above), do a little research to ensure this is the deal for you. Be in the know before you buy – it’s just a hassle if you change your mind after you purchase a deal.
  • Decision made. Click on the “Buy” button, review your order, and complete your transaction.
  • The deal arrives. AmazonLocal e-mails you a link to your purchased deal voucher as soon as the order is processed.

You’ve now just scored your very own crazy-priced local deal.

A few more tips on buying an AmazonLocal Deal:

  • Read “The Detail” first: Each deal comes with a detailed offer description as well as who is offering the deal. Know your deal before you buy to ensure you know exactly what you are getting.
  • Read “What You Need to Know” second: Each deal also comes with specific terms, including scheduling requirements, locations where it can be used and expiration dates. Save yourself any headaches and know a deal’s limitations before you buy.
  • Oh no! There’s no “Buy” button! So sorry. This deal is either sold out or no longer available.
  • Oops! You changed your mind after purchase. It happens. You might still be able to cancel your order, but you will need to contact AmazonLocal either by phone or e-mail to do this.
  • Not your deal today. There may be prior deals still available. Look at the bottom of the screen for more deal options for your selected city.

How to use an AmazonLocal Voucher: The voucher is how you will access your deal. Once you make a purchase, AmazonLocal e-mails you the link to your specific deal’s voucher. Don’t lose it! But if you do, that’s ok. Go into your AmazonLocal account and click on “Your Vouchers” to find a list of your purchased vouchers.

Once you are ready to use your voucher, print it and take it with you to the service provider. Or, you can access the voucher through a smartphone, Kindle with Special Offers (more on this below), or other mobile device.

Most vouchers come with an expiration date so be aware of this when you purchase as well as when you want to use it.

Boo! My Location isn’t listed at AmazonLocal. Don’t see your city? Don’t give up hope! AmazonLocal continues to add more locations across the U.S. How can you find out when AmazonLocal has added your location? You can subscribe now to local e-mails for your area and as soon as AmazonLocal adds that area, they will begin sending you the deals.

Have a Kindle? Great news! Kindle owners can now purchase AmazonLocal deals direct from their Kindles. You will  need to subscribe to the Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers, though, to activate this feature. Read more about activating AmazonLocal on a Kindle device at AmazonLocal Help.
