Here’s something to think about while rushing to complete your holiday shopping: the prices you see on e-commerce sites like Amazon.com may not be the same prices other people see. Fortunately, a new tool created by NULab Core Faculty Members David Lazer, Christo Wilson, and their team of researchers makes it easy to identify occurrences of price discrimination and the more common phenomenon of price steering. The new Google Chrome extension they developed works on Amazon, Google Flights, and Price­line Hotels and seamlessly presents information about the price you’re seeing and the price the servers are getting.

You can try out the extension by downloading it here, and more information is available at news@Northeastern, here.
