Bargain Shopping on the Internet

For the most part I rely on 3 deal posting web sites to do my bargain hunting:

My strategy is to have a running list of things I plan to eventually buy (without an immediate need), then wait and watch for bargains to pop up. I generally peruse these sites on a near daily basis looking at posted bargains. (Slickdeals.net is my personal favorite).

For instance - I currently know that I eventually want to buy a mp3 player and/or portable media player for my upcoming trips to China. Since I don't have an immediate need, I am just watching as waiting for a bargain to pop up.

Yesterday I picked up another set of noise-cancelling headphones for free after rebate from a deal posted on slickdeals.net. Will certainly be usefull on those trips to China.

Hey 2Mil, I'm not too sure how you are going to look on the plane to China in pink headphones.

I've used the ones you mention in the past, but for one reason or another they fell by the wayside for me. If I remember correctly, slick deals was offline for a couple of weeks a few months back which is when I gave up on them.

Here's what I currently subscribe to (RSS feeds):
AbleShoppers.com
AntiRebate.com
FreeAfterRebate.info
RetailMeNot.com (coupons)
RebateBlog.com
WeeklyCloseouts.com
yugster.com

I use a trick of setting up a bunch of RSS feeds for a bunch of bargain sites. Then when I want something it's a simple matter of searching the folder - You can read more here". It's definitely the lazy way to do it.

Ha! I didn't get the pink ones - I got the noise canceling headphones. Pink isn't really my color.

Hi 2million ,

You and others who commented here made this post resourceful with those links, where everyone can make a good deal for whatever they want to get. Thank you for sharing...

A couple of other very good sites that I use are:

dealcatcher.com
dealnews.com
edealinfo.com

Craigslist is a decent place to look for used items at decent prices. I'd probably stay away from headphones,especially the in-ear versions. You can also get an RSS feed, which as jojo points out which is key.

I look at those too, but the best sites I've found so far are:

www.techbargains.com
www.edealinfo.com

and the hotdeals forum at Anandtech:

Great site! i have a question for ya. I am a new investor and want to know what plan is better. Buy Bank of America and Merk or just buy the ETF SDY or DVY which cover both companies? What are the pros and cons.....thanks for ur time!

Im no expert, but if your a new investor - stick with an ETF or fund. You'll get diversification.....

www.wireddeals.com is a mesh between fatwallet and slickdeals.
