Coupon Caddy

Coupon Caddy is a browser plugin that belongs to an ever-growing group of applications developed by 215 Apps (Innovative Apps). All of these applications, including Savings Vault, InstantSavingsApp, Supreme Savings and other, display coupon deals to users when they visit a list of online stores. The list includes Toys R Us, Zales, Expedia and a thousand more. Coupon Caddy is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. Despite the fact that this application is not a computer virus, users are often advised to remove Coupon Caddy from their computers, because such plugins in the long run can pose various security risks.

Some users think that Coupon Caddy installs itself on their computers without permission. However, during the installation Coupon Caddy always prompts you about the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, so unless you agree to it, the plugin cannot be installed. The extension can be downloaded at coupon-caddy.com, but most often it gets downloaded bundled with freeware. When you download software application from a third party website, it is very likely that it will come together with additional freeware.
