    This is a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge which is showing you available offers on the retailer websites.

For not being annoying the popups are being automatically snoozed for a while after first navigation on the website. You can manually un-snooze them by clicking on the extension icon when you're on the website and it'll show the offer popup again. Also, you can manage your account by visiting the extension's options page.
