I couldn't find a way to compain to MS or Paypal so I'm doing so here. Since I had to transfer my reward rebate to Paypal I should be able to use. Paypal refusing to transfer to cash debit cards or the credit card of my choice so I can use the money is unacceptable. The only way to use the money is get paypal's own debit card. What a racket you guys have set up. If there is a way for a class action lawsuit then so be it.

Nice Idea, but lousy execution. I really don't know where to begin with the list of issues this mess of a program has. No matter how many times you send in a bug report, it never gets addressed, let alone responded too. In fact the same issues I once sent in over two years ago still remain. One of them is how the pop up window to do any list managment, editing, selecting items for moving, etc., is always 100% transparent. You cannot see a darn thing you are trying to do because the window behind it is clearly visable. You can't see if you are checking or unchecking items or anything. MS just doesn't give two damns. And the way this app throws your selections in not just the list you've created for it, but in random other lists you've created for different kinds of products. For instance; if you created a list for candles, and find candles to save within it, very often the extension will save it in the list "candles", along with a few random other lists you've created as well.

Useful theoretically, but it won't open for me. I click on the icon in my Edge toolbar and nothing happens. Tried uninstalling and re-installing the add-on and that didn't fix it. Using Edge Version 104.0.1293.63 (Official build) (64-bit).
