Recent/Planned MS Edge Shopping-Related Functionalities

Some new and planned features by Microsoft to enhance users' shopping experience by finding coupons and better prices include the Microsoft Edge coupon finder, lower price offering, quick access to shopping deals, and Deals Hub on Microsoft Bing. Microsoft Edge on desktop and mobile can now help users to locate deals with an in-built coupon finder.

Recent/Planned MS Edge Shopping-Related Functionalities

Coupon Finder

Method of Operation/Use

  • When a user visits a retail website using Microsoft Edge, the browser reveals a blue coupon symbol in the address bar to indicate if coupons are available.
  • Clicking the blue coupon opens a menu with a list of coupons and allows users to copy-paste the codes at checkout or opt to have Edge auto-fill the coupon codes instead.
  • A short graphic interchange describing this functionality is provided below.

Lowest Price When Shopping in Microsoft Edge

Method of Operation/Use

  • Edge’s price comparison feature can also be accessed by clicking the blue coupon symbol.
  • To do this, click the blue price tag to see a list of prices along with direct links to the product page on those sites.
  • If the browser determines that the user already has the lowest price, Microsoft Edge will notify them, thereby saving time and energy.
  • Shopping features like price comparison and coupons adhere to Microsoft's privacy policies and are on by default and can be turn off at any time by using the “…” button in the top right of the shopping flyouts or by going directly to Settings > Privacy, search, and services.
