How to Find a Great Deal When Shopping Online

Some online retailers offer deals to customers that can’t be found in the stores.  Special online deals allow people to shop from the comfort of their own home instead of standing in long lines outside the retail stores.  They may offer free shipping for orders over a certain dollar amount.

Use coupons to shop at online stores.  Check Sunday newspaper circulars.  Some stores offer customers the option of using their coupons online.  Since you have shipping and handling in addition to sales tax, online merchants will offer more money off with their coupons for online purchases.

Electronics are a popular item to purchase online.  Check the comments made by other shoppers before purchasing.  Their comments give you an idea of the quality and satisfaction you will receive from the product.  Stores like Circuit City offer deals on their electronics which includes in-store pickup. 

What they will ask you to do is to enter your address into the computer.  They will give you the address of the closest store location and the availability of the product you seek.  If the product is available, you have the option of paying online and picking it up in the store.  You avoid shipping and handling and long lines in the store.

Sites like are always offering deals on all sorts of items.  Some are new and some are refurbished.  Be sure that the site you use is an authorized reseller of the selected product to avoid getting ripped off.  Again, check comments from other shoppers that have used that site for shopping purchases.

Taking surveys can garner deals at shopping sites all across the Internet.  Places like offer shopping deals to their members through daily bonus e-mails just for trying products for a trial period.  Members also earn points towards gift cards and services for trying these offers.  There is no cost to become a member.  Just sign up and create a profile.
