SpecialSavings

SpecialSavings claims that this browser extension delivers the best money saving deals online. With the application installed on your browser, you can expect to receive coupons, discounts and special offers whenever you browse an online shopping website. SpecialSavings application can be installed on all main Internet browsers (including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer). It displays coupon deals and offers for an extensive list of online stores, including Best Buy, Walmart, Hollister, homedepot.com and others. At first glance it seems that SpecialSavings is a useful application that enhances your online shopping experience. Perhaps that is so, but not all users are satisfied with this browser extension.

To start with, the SpecialSavings application officially can be downloaded at specialsavings.com. However, that is not the only website that distributes the extensions. It is very common for such browser plugins to come bundled with other free software applications that are downloaded at third party websites. In such a case, if a user is not attentive during the installation process, he/she ends up installing SpecialSavings without even realizing it. Later on, SpecialSavings can display a list of commercial advertisements that might turn out of be annoying due to the disruption of general web browsing process. What is more, such browser plugins and their websites usually do not review the commercial links that are embedded in their ads. Thus, the plugin could be easily hacked by cyber criminals to display links to malicious websites.

That is why we highly recommend removing SpecialSavings from your computer if you are not an avid online shopper.
