Online shopping is more convenient than ever!
Who doesn’t appreciate finding great deals online and having the items appear on your doorstep so quickly?
If you’re in need of a last-minute gift or two, check out the following websites that currently feature some of the best prices, the best quality products, and the best deals around.
Our recommendations (in this order) are:
Aside from the fact that Amazon is probably the most popular online shopping site around, their products are also of the best quality and they offer the lowest prices. They also make it easy to buy for others, thanks to their online Wish List registry.
An Internet leader for name brands at clearance prices. You’ll find top-quality name-brand merchandise at 40-80% off every day of the week — all backed by the warranties and service you’d expect. They’re VERY well-respected as a reputable online shopping site.
Here, you’ll find daily deals and bargains on home and technology products. These are up-to-the-minute sale prices on everyday, popular items! Just scroll down the list til you find what you’re looking for. The best part: You’re likely to find a great deal on something you hadn’t thought of!
The best way to go broke saving money! They publish great deals from over 1,000 well-known vendors, and their specials are lower than you’ll find anywhere else. You can sort by category, or just scroll down the list to see all of the last-minute specials.
For all things personalized, and the largest selection of unique and hard-to-find gift ideas, they are the Internet’s personalized gift mall! Every single item includes free personalization and shipping within 24-48 hours.
A long-time favorite of ours… You can find practically anything at eBay!
Looking for bags, purses, or luggage? We get all ours at eBags. (Our favorite luggage is Skyway!)
More Online Shopping Tips:
- Before you “check out” with your online purchase, check in with CurrentCodes or NaughtyCodes to find the latest advertised AND unadvertised specials and coupons for each of the above online shopping sites. They’ll give you a special “coupon code” to add to your order to save even more – with no catches!
- When you need another opinion, or need some help deciding between a couple of similar products, or can’t determine whether the product would be actually useful in the long run, remember you can see what the experts and consumers who currently own the product are saying about it first.
- Whenever you buy anything online, always use a credit card, not a debit card. That way you’re protected if there’s ever any kind of problem with your order. Paying with a debit card won’t give you the same protection.
Always on the lookout for a good bargain, I consider myself a frugal person — but not cheap. And not afraid to spend money on the things that matter. I like to share good deals with others when I find them. One of my favorite ways to save money is to reuse items in ways other than their intended purpose — so I write a lot about outside-the-box ideas that most people wouldn't think of! When I'm not saving money or looking for good deals, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
