I love a good deal and for this reason, I do most of my shopping online. With the rise in deal-of-the-day websites, you no longer have to wait for Black Friday or sales after the holidays to get a great deal. Here are just a few sites where you can get the best deals at any time of the year!
This website is the world’s largest online retailer and the producer of the notable electronic, my favorite reading device, The Kindle. This site has discounted rates on almost anything you can imagine. You can purchase new or used books, electronics, jewelry, clothes, perfume, and several other items from thousands or retailers for a fraction of the retail cost. This site also offers daily deals and provides free two day shipping for Amazon Prime members. When you get the chance, go to this website and search for anything you have ever wanted and I am certain that you will find exactly what you want for less than the retail price.
This deal-of-the-day website features discounted gift certificates usable at local or national companies. There are daily deals at local restaurants, salons, gyms and several other local businesses for an allotted time. Groupon offers perfume, sports memorabilia, and several other items from national companies. You can control what deals you would like to see because the site has an area where you can love items under specific categories. For example, the site is currently offering Coach Poppy Flower Eau De Parfum for 31% off the retail price and this deal will last for approximately two days. If you would like to see more deals like this one, than you can choose to press the heart located next to the categories “Good for Gifting” and “Well-Groomed” and see these types of deals more often. The site also offers incredible deals on getaways to places throughout the world.
This deal-of-the-day website also features discounted gift certificates usable at local or national company. Living Social has deals on dinning, health, beauty, getaways and much more. This site is very similar to Groupon in that it offers daily deals but Living Social focuses mainly on local business merchants. The CEO stated that he wants Living Social to be “viewed much more as a local commerce platform” (Schonfeld, Tech Crunch, 2012).
Keep in mind that all of these sites are completely free to join and offer and easy sign-up if you have a Facebook account. You can also download an app for each of these sites on your mobile device. I hope at least one of these sites help you save time and a good chunk of change!
