31 Places to Stop By Before Shopping Online, Shop Smartly Online At The Best Prices

Shopping for me has completely changed since I have come to the US from India. I tend to buy almost everything online rather than visit a store. In fact I had my Desktop PC shipped to me part by part from 7 different websites online.

I tended to make quite a lot of mistakes in my early online shopping experience but over a time I have learnt the tricks of getting good deals shopping online.

Here are 8 Places I usually stop before I really order something online and if you use these services you would definitely save quite a few $$$ shopping online.

Discount / Deals Sites

These are the sites which announce discounts and deals from across different online shopping sites. You can get to know what codes to apply to get a discount on the product you want to buy or even get the product at a discounted price from the site itself.

Overstock

overstock-thumbnail

The mother of all deal providers OverStock provides you with deals that know off product prices between 40-80% of the original retail prices.

The concept works great because many a times supply is much more than what the actual demand is and instead of facing losses on the over stock the popular brands offer it for sale at a much lower prices at OverStock and keep both the buyer and themselves happy.

The site provides discounts on home & garden, jewelry, watches, clothing, electronics, sports toys and more.

So if your looking for huge discounts, this is the first place you should land up in.

Tech4Less

tech4less-logo

Tech4Less is a place you should visit if your looking to get some cheap tech goods. The USP behind the less prices the Tech4Less is that they sell Open box, Factory Refurbished, Refurbished or used articles which may at times have minor damages which is disclosed in the product item description.

In fact I got my Open box Lacie 500GB Hard drive from Tech4Less at a 68$ discounted price. They also have a clearance center from where you can get products at a real cheap price.

SmartBargains

smart-bargains-logo

SmartBargains is a place where you can bargains for products ranging from Bed & Bath, Home & Kitchen, apparels, shoes clothing and more.

The site really gives you pretty   good discounts that you probably never find anywhere else.

The deals include outright discounts, special coupon codes and mail-in rebates, if you follow the deals you may end paying much lesser than what the online stores are charging you.

And the best part is that the deals keep coming in every day and you are bound to find the thing you intend to buy at a much lower price.

SlickDeals

SlickDeals is another place where you can find tons of deals, in fact it is like a social networking place for shoppers where users can add deals and tag them so that other users can find them easily.

Woot is a site where they sell only one product a day at a highly discounted price. The product is available daily between 12 AM Central Time or till its sold out.

The only problem with Woot is the shipping price of $5 which never changes so even if the price of the product is $1 you end up paying $6. Nevertheless a pretty good place for a bit higher priced products available on discount.
