When you surf the web to buy, you could save a fortune using price tracking tools.

How? There are free apps and free software programs that do the work for you.

1.) The browser extension, "Honey," for example searches for coupons for you and applies them to your purchase right away. It will also notify you via email when there's a good deal.

2.) Price tracker, "Camel Camel Camel" tracks prices only on Amazon. It watches millions of products, so as soon as that price hits that sweet spot, you buy.

3.) Google Chrome Plugin, "Smart Price Monitor," is similar. It keeps an eye on your favorite products, but it can be used for any online shopping website. When you open the program, click on "monitor price.”

4.) Another price comparison program called "InvisibleHand" doesn’t require you to add products to any watch list. When you check out a product online, if there's a cheaper price out there or any coupons, "InvisibleHand" will automatically let you know about it.
