Microsoft will add an option to Microsoft Edge that displays the available Discount Coupons when you shop online.
We all market the idea, and online shopping has made it easier than ever to find a lot of everything you want to buy. Price comparison sites are handy for tracking the best price, but coupons can also make big savings.
There are sites (some of which you have to pay to use) that tell you about all the latest money-saving coupons that can help you lower the price of your online store. There are also free sites, but these can be a little unreliable. But soon Microsoft Edge can help you reduce the cost of your purchase.
The latest version of Edge 92 for Android includes an experimental setting called Shopping Site Coupons. You can probably guess what this does – it lets you know when money-saving coupons are available for the online store where you buy.
But the feature goes beyond that. Your browser not only tells you that you can save money, but automatically uses the available coupons and coupon codes to make the savings without the extra work from you.

The system works in the same way as money-saving browser extensions like Honey. However, this feature is specific to the Android version of Microsoft Edge and does not require the installation of add-ons or extensions. It is not clear at this time whether Microsoft plans to bring the same feature to the desktop version of Edge, but time will tell.
If you want to try the feature for yourself, you have to install the latest version of Edge Canary. You can then enable coupons by following these steps:
- Start Edge and visit edge: // flags
- Find the named ticket Shopping site Coupons and set it to In use
- Restart Edge
When you visit a supported shopping site, there are new icons in the address bar that indicate that the coupon is available. Tap the icon for more information and you will see a list of all available coupons, which you can then redeem with a new tap.
