Savings Magnet

If you did not intend to have Savings Magnet on your computer and you have installed it accidentally, it is highly recommended to remove Savings Magnet from the system. It is a browser extension that is supposed to help you save money on your online purchases. For example, if you visit a page at eBay or Amazon, Savings Magnet will present you with a list of possible coupon deals for that website or even the good you want to purchase. The official website at savings-magnet.info claims the following:

Savings magnet is a new and unique browser add-on that will collect Special online sales, coupons and discounts from all over the web in order for you to save money. Just shop at your favorite online stores and the discounts will come right to your browser - it save you time by enabling you to compare the product you were looking for to products in the same category and also saves you money by "magnetting" the coupons and discounts.

Naturally, if you are an avid online shopper, Savings Magnet may seem like a useful application, but there are reports that users complain about receiving commercial advertisements from the plugin, even though they do not remember having installed it on their PCs. The thing, however, is that Savings Magnet cannot be installed the user's intervention, therefore, even if you have not downloaded Savings Magnet at savings-magnet.info, it is possible that the plugin came bundled with such programs as Yontoo Layers Client or FBPhotoZoom, when you downloaded them at third party websites.

When Savings Magnet gets installed, not only does it display coupons in boxes at the top corner of your browser. Commercial advertisements are also displayed above underlined keywords within the web text.
