Where to Find the Best Online Shopping Deals

By Jonathan Wylie

If I told you that the best online shopping deals were ones that most people never hear about, you might not believe me, but it’s true! So, if you are looking to snag a bargain for an upcoming birthday, anniversary, or even for Christmas, take a look at the sites below and be prepared to be amazed at just how much money you can save.


Living Social – You’ve probably seen the commercials for Living Social on TV, but how does it work? It’s simple really. You sign up for free on their website and are sent daily deals by email for local businesses near you. These deals are most often deeply discounted, and a great way to try something new. If you share the deal with three other friends who also buy in, then your deal is free. This group buying network is an increasingly popular venture so if you don’t get the deals you want, try Groupon.


Slickdeals – Welcome to the bleeding edge of bargain hunting. This deal finding forum is an incredibly active and up to date way to find the best deals on the web today. The front page deals are a great place to start, but diving into the forums is also recommended if you want to be first to get the latest offers. Everything from diapers to iPads can be found on Slickdeals.net, with big savings to be made on almost all items you find here.


Dealnews – If Slickdeals is a little too raw for you, then you will love the user-friendly layout at Dealnews.com. Here you will find deals on laptops, clothing, travel, and more. It is constantly updated with all the latest scoops, but you need to check in on a regular basis to make sure that the deals you want are still available. You can even sign up for email alerts that will automatically inform you about the deals of your choice.


Fat Wallet – Like Slickdeals, Fat Wallet is a community based deal forum that scours the Internet for the best prices on a whole variety of consumer goods. However, Fat Wallet also offers its users the chance to participate in a dedicated cash back program. So, not only do you have access to some great online deals, but you also get the chance to earn money back on your purchases. To date, Fat Wallet has paid out over $30 million in cash back rewards.


RetailMeNot – Don’t buy anything online without first visiting RetailMeNot.com to see if you can save even more. This site specializes in coupon codes, and has hundreds of deals for the most popular online retailers. Simply search for the store you are about to buy from, and you will be given a list of active coupons that you can use to lower your final bill.

So, the next time you are looking to save some money, take a look at the sites above and get ready to go bargain hunting!
