Starting with latest version of Microsoft Edge browser, you will start seeing coupons in the address bar. The company introduced this functionality to help users finding best deals while shopping online.
In the latest version, if you visit any online shopping website or product store, you will start seeing a new icon on the right side of the address bar, hovering on which will give a message that reads “This site has coupon! Shopping in Microsoft Edge badge value”
If the online store has coupon, you will see badge value or number on icon. The badge value or number indicate coupon available on the website. For the first time, if you click on the Coupon icon, following welcome screen will appear:
You can click on the Got it, thanks!
From now onwards, if you visit any store for example dell.com, lenovo.com, samsung.com, or any other online store, then you will start seeing badge value (number of coupons) in the address bar.
Clicking the Shopping icon will show you all the coupons which you can redeem. You check the following screenshot for an idea:
From the list, you can ‘click to copy’ coupon code that you find is perfect for your purchase. The thing to note is that you will only see coupons if it’s provided by the online stores.
