Compare Prices on NewEgg.com with Hover Hound

Hover Hound Plugin

Many Computer Technicians in the US will spend a bit of time scanning Newegg.com looking for the best hardware prices to stock their computer businesses. While Newegg is known to have some of the lowest prices for computer hardware, Amazon and TigerDirect often have even better prices.
The browser extension Hover Hound makes it easy to search Newegg.com, and then compare the price of any product with Amazon and TigerDirect. The plugin works by adding an extra button on Newegg that when hovered, shows you the prices of same product on both Amazon and TigerDirect. It can also show you a price history graph of the product and if you are a Amazon Prime member, you can filter Hover Hound results to only items at Amazon that have Prime Shipping.

The plugin is available for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox and is a must have for any computer technician who purchases stock from Newegg.com

    Works fine at Newegg.com but does not work (buttons do not appear) at Newegg.ca… despite the opening line “Many Computer Technicians in the US and Canada” ??? ….pretty useless for anyone from Canada. Would be a great add-on and a real time saver if they would get it working for Newegg Canada.

      Correct, Dave. That was the phrase that stood out to me as well. Newegg.com doesn’t even have an option to ship to a non-US country. Their .CA site simply *never* has similar sales running; it’s useless.

    I use an extension called PriceBlink that compares prices across hundreds of sites including most of the major (and many minor) online retailers like NewEgg, Amazon, TigerDirect, BestBuy, Target, B&H, Walmart, etc, etc. When you are on a product page on any supported site, it displays a bar across the top that shows whether there is a lower price available. You can also view a dropdown list of the prices at all supported sites. If we are going to order some hard drives, power supplies or whatever, we can very quickly see who currently has the best price.

    There are extensions for Firefox, Chrome and Safari. And it does support NewEgg Canada. You can view a list of all supported sites on their website. Highly recommended.
