The Best Way to Shop for Electronics on the Web.
What’s the best way to buy electronics in 2006? Read the circulars in the Sunday paper? Drive to stores advertising sales? Ask your buddy in Hackensack?
While these are all viable ways to shop for electronics, they’re definitely not the best. It’s easy to save gas, time, and money by smart use of the Web.
The Web is teeming with bargain gathering sites that search the Web for you, offering up coupon codes for online stores, as well as what online store has what sale and when that sale expires.
There are so many of these deal sniffing sites, we simply could never list them all – but we’re gonna try – www.xpbargains.com, which bills itself as the “Best Source of Best Tech Deals,” combs the Web for online coupon codes and sales, and lists bargains galore. The home page begins with a list of expiring deals and expiring coupons, so you can click and snatch up a bargain before time runs out.
www.slickdeals.net says it is the most frequently updated and complete deal site on the Web. It also has over 800 coupon codes for many online stores. Cheapstingybargains.com also offers a wealth of online coupons for electronics deals at Dell, Overstock.com, and Amazon, just to name a few.
