Discount Buddy can be called as a potentially unwanted program. However, because of its infiltration method, we have also decided to categorize it as an adware, which displays coupons, advertisements and sponsored links when you start your online shopping. Of course, we can't disagree with the ones that claim that Discount Buddy's pop-up ads help to find great deals when shopping on Ebay, Amazon, Walmart and similar websites. However, this program can easily start interrupting you on every browser you use and show its pop-up ads or underlined words on every website you enter. Be aware that this is done for monetization purposes only and can be stopped by uninstalling Discount Buddy from the system.

HOW CAN I GET Discount Buddy on MY PC?

Users start noticing Discount Buddy's advertisements once it gets inside the system. There are two methods for getting this program on the PC. First one includes manual installation, when user desides that he needs this program on his computer. However, there is also another way how Discount Buddy gets inside the PC and it's not as peaceful as the previous one. This adware can also be downloaded in a bundle with other programs that have it included to their components list. So, you should always select custom installation option and remove checkboxes for unwanted programs when installing freeware or shareware.

The main thing that doesn't impress about this program is that it may start collecting data about your browsing habits and then send it to its owners. Besides, it becomes really annoying when Discount Buddy starts appearing on every browser it finds installed on the machine.


First of all, uninstall this program from Add/Remove Programs list. For that, go to Control Panel Add/Remove programs and uninstall DIscount Buddy or any component that is related to Savings Explorer. Now you can scan your PC with updated anti-spyware, such as  STOPzilla, SpyHunter.
