Deal Shopping Sites Roundup

If you're like me, every year you plan on doing your holiday shopping online, but wait too long, and end up in the mall on Christmas Eve. Well now is a pretty good time to do your online shopping without paying high shipping costs to ensure your stuff arrives on time.

As many of you probably know I maintain the deal shopping site called SpendFish, so I keep a close eye on other deal sites. Here's a collection of some of the best deal sites:

Deal Shopping Sites

  • SpendFish - Searches Amazon's API and stores the best deals. You can subscribe to complex RSS feeds such as "coffee makers on sale for 40% off or more, and less than $100", or try some of the gift finders. UPDATE: This site is no longer operating.
  • Woot - Features one deal every day.
  • Delight Deals - this one from the delight network is for the ladies!
  • Overstock - they have a lot of good stuff, and good prices.
  • Deal News - nice site, and also features several sub sites: dealmac, dealram, dealcam, etc.
  • Fat Wallet - forums, news, and price comparison.
  • TechBargains - blog of bargains for tech stuff.
  • SlickDeals - deal blog with a mix of stuff.
  • DealMouse - A nice deal blog - mostly electronics.
  • DealCatcher - blog with lots of different stuff, majority is probably electronics.
  • Mighty Goods - blog, not everything is on sale, but points for an elegant design, and cool name.
  • AntiRebate - like deals, but hate rebates? then this blog is for you.

Are there any other deal sites that are worthwhile that I'm missing?

There is a site, fairly new to scene, called Really clean layout, great deals, rss feed, etc. definitely check it out.
by Danny Bergold on 02/08/2006 at 12:25:57 PM UTC - not a deal site, but a directory of shopping rewards. After you've found your deal, come here and find your reward from dozens of cash back, frequent flyer and savings programs.
