What is CouponBar?

The Coupons.com CouponBar is a web browser add-in that analyzes web sites your browser visits and attempts to find discount deals associated with the merchant's product offerings. If CouponBar sees a corresponding deal, it will attempt to inject an affiliate identifier in order to collect commissions if a purchase is made while trying to offer you the best price of that particular product or show you an alternative product even if it is sold by a different merchant. CouponBar will automatically change your home page to couponbar.coupons.com.
