The Holiday shopping season is about to get into full swing. Online retailers are eagerly anticipating a rush and hoping to attract customers by slashing pries. Here are some of the hottest websites to help you find the hottest deals.
Dealalerter.com does the window shopping for you. Some websites will even watch your favorite items, and let you know when they're at a price you're willing to pay. "It keeps going in every day and checking your item and checking stores everyday and when it finds your item at the price you want."
Two other sites to help you find bargains, Slickdeals.com and fatwallet.com. Consumer Advocate Edgar Dworsky says, "They're veteran bargain hunters talk about some of the greatest deals. For example, people found a Dyson vacuum cleaner for 149 dollars."
The bargain hunters in these forums talk about deals that may not have been advertised in the newspaper or on television. "Sometimes you want to know what's on sale but you didn't save the Sunday circulars" says Dworsky. That's what SundaySaver.com will help you with, finding the coupons you missed in the Sunday paper.
And it gets better. Sales Circular.com will also tell you where to find deals in your area. "Let's say you're looking for GPS units. You put in your zip code and it will show you all the GPS units on sale in your area."
But with so many sales, how do you know if you're getting the best price? You go to Pricespider.com "Believe it or not, you can look up almost any item and they will tell you recently it was this price. Instantly you become a much sharper shopper because you'll know when it is the right time to buy."
