Where do I find the cheapest prices online?

13,170 Views
Message 1 of 37

What sites have the cheapest prices? Usually I go to Yahoo to search new products. Recently, I clicked on the first product I saw, a toaster, and purchased it from a site I hadn't heard of. However, when the toaster came, the receipt showed it as $15 less than I paid.

 

Obviously, I was disapointed. What is a recommended place to shop online?

You can add a browser extension to your computer, if you feel comfortable doing that. I use one called Homey that finds coupons and automatically applies them.

 

This one, Price Scout, searches for the best deal on line. I have not personally used this one.

@AnthonyR356001, yes, I do the search in my browser for coupons/discounts but unfortunately, I find I spend too much time copying and applying codes that do not work. That can make one say, to heck with it, I need/want this item so I will just pay!

Impossible to answer with a single sentence or two. I've written a complete set of e-books on this topic, as the Internet offers resources to save on literally everything one buys. One example related to your question is Google Shopping. This can show you prices from multiple (but certainly not all) online stores that have the item.  I have seen prices for items like cameras, computers, TVs vary in price by thousands of dollars from one store to another. It pays to comparison shop online, including the key savings site, Amazon.

Google, Amazon, Walmart, then Ebay for prices. Ebay often has the lowest prices but it ends up being cheap junk from China. Use CNET first for reviews of electronics & computer-related. Have Honey & Piggy downloaded & in some cases google for coupons.
