If you’re anything like me, you consider saving money a sport. Of course, to get good at the game, you need the right gear.

Or, in this case, the right browser extension.

RateX extension offers and automatically applies the best exchange rate at checkout for you. And the best part? There are no fee charges for it. Whenever you shop abroad, bank charge hidden fees. They usually take the “real” exchange rate – the one you see on Google; the official, fairest rate and change it. It means that every single time you pay for something in foreign currency, you pay more than you should. Oh and more, they charge you another fee. Foreign transaction fee. It works out to be ~5% and these are money you can save.

Consider this: every time you purchase items from Amazon, the cart essentially exceeds US$125 to qualify for free shipping. And every time you pay with your usual payment method you are paying $12-18 extra for absolutely nothing.

That’s where RateX comes in. Once installed, we display our exchange price and price alongside your checkout cart, and we display the charges other bank imposes on you and you decide whether or not you’re seeing the best price. The idea is to catch you before you add check out and present you with a cheaper alternate way to pay.

Our extension essentially helps you shop and save money. Period. It is a revolutionary way that provides off the roof convenience and savings – right off where you check out. We promise you that our rates are cheaper, better and lower than all banks; one hundred percent of the time. Right now we are only available on Amazon but let us hear what are some of the other sites you wish we would work on.
