There are a lot of sites like Ben’s Bargains, but for some reason, I always find myself coming back to this site, because I can often find deals that other deal aggregator sites don’t have.  They also have a tracker for hard-to-find items.  When the Wii and the iPhone are impossible to find, they have a section devoted to updating when new stock comes in from merchant websites around the web.

Have you ever wondered where unsold items wind up when a company can’t sell them? Many unsold items end up at sells appliances, watches, jewelry, electronics, sporting goods, clothing, shoes, bedding, and home improvement items. specializes in selling manufacturers’ excess inventory at discounted prices. You can find great deals at on liquidated merchandise and discontinued items that manufacturers will not be carrying in the future. Shipping is only $2.95 regardless of your order size. has a great online auction site and also sells cars and real estate. They also operate an site where customers can save even more money by buying in bulk.


FatWallet is a one-stop bargain hunting website that offers coupons and cash back rebates on thousands of different products from retailers. There are over 800 different retailers on the FatWallet website, including major retailers like Apple, Sony, Bloomingdales, and Wal-Mart. FatWallet makes shopping easier for customers. Instead of having to search hundreds of different company websites for the best deals, FatWallet provides all of this information in one central location. FatWallet offers discounts on traditional retail products like televisions, computers and non-traditional products like financial services and restaurants. The community at FatWallet is a big asset in helping to find the best “hot deals” that companies are currently offering.


PriceGrabber is a pretty unique site. PriceGrabber is strictly a price comparison site and does not sell products or offer discounts on products. Customers are able to gather detailed product information and compare prices among thousands of different retailers. The site includes ratings, reviews, and prices on millions of products. PriceGrabber aims to equip customers with information so that they can make an informed purchasing decision. PriceGrabber enables you to find the best price available from both large and small retailers. The unbiased nature of the PriceGrabber site is a major benefit.


SmartBargains is a site owned by a group of online retailers that offers name-brand products at extremely low prices. SmartBargains offers up to 70% off most products. The products offered on the site come from canceled store orders, excess inventory, and manufacturer closeouts. SmartBargains has new arrivals every day, but you have to be quick to get them because they are often sold in limited quantities.

Have you tried any of these sites? If so, did you enjoy your shopping experience? What are your favorite sites for online shopping?
