What is Lucky Savings?

Its developers amazing apps uses deceptive methods to promote Lucky Savings - most commonly this browser add-on gets installed on user's PCs together with some free software downloaded from the Internet. The installed web browser add-on shows coupon ads when it's users visit various merchant web sites like Best Buy, Walmart and Expedia as well as other online shopping sites. It's strongly recommended to uninstall the Lucky Savings from your computer.
