The coupons entered would only be those authorized by the stores publicly, so it’s no use thinking that the search algorithm would go to the deep web to get secret codes or something like that. Even so, it is a much more practical resource than searching the website, inbox or on the social networks of companies.

For now, everything still seems being in the internal stage of creation, after all, there is no flag for the resource in any of the Chrome channels, not even in the developer-oriented one.

Browsing + Shopping
Inserting tools to make shopping easier isn’t exactly new for Google. The company created the Shopping for Search, which looks for products with discounts and compares the price between stores, in addition to having added features to streamline online payments through the browser, such as the feature to save the credit card number.
At the Google I/O developer conference 2021, the company claimed to have made a partner with Shopify to display products advertised there directly on Google, without having to create an e-commerce site to do so. At that point, the company also guaranteed that it would be possible to save shopping carts opened in the home tab, which is great for those who make recurrent purchases.
