Google Chrome Extension Tells You Not To Shop at Amazon

Google Chrome users can download a new extension called “Amazon, Huh?” When shopping online, the extension will tell you different reasons why you shouldn’t buy from Amazon.

Check it out: “With their controversial ‘Price Check’ app, Amazon.com announced it would pay customers up to $5 to go into a local store, scan an item, walk out, and buy the same item on Amazon. So this Chrome extension reminds you — every time you land on Amazon.com — to get off your computer and buy a book in person.”

Developer Josh Begley created the extension for Marcus Bookstores. What do you think?
