Everyone loves a good deal. From cheapo holiday decorations to a great deal on electronics, The Internet is a great place to find what you need – and for less.

Here are my standby’s for online deal-catching!
Gizmodo – #Dealzmodo! If you are looking for a deal on electronics, subscribe to Gizmodo’s
#Dealzmodo thread (RSS) for a daily round-up of the best and hottest deals on the ‘net. Related: Hobomodo,
in which they highlight stuff you can get for free <— That’s a good deal.
NewEgg.com – This site is a great place to find generally low prices and good deals, not to mention excellent reviews from folks who know what they are talking about when it comes to technology. Computer mice, thumb drives, backup drives, monitors, computers, laptops, routers – they sell it all.
Household / Personal / Clothing
RedPlum - I just recently found out about this site at BlogHer10, and it’s pretty cool. Lots of coupons and deals in every category from grocery to household. Easy to use & looks pretty sleek too. They also have an affiliate program of some sort, which I plan to look into.
Collections, Etc – This site sells incredibly cheap stuff. Sometimes you get what you pay for, sometimes it’s more worthwhile. They have everything from bathroom accessories to holiday decorations, most items under $15. For some cheap stuff that you don’t need to last forever, it’s a worthwhile look. Plus, I just like to window shop and giggle at what they come up with!
Retail Me Not – If you haven’t heard of RetailMeNot you have been living under a very expensive rock #justkidding #alittle. Seriously though, don’t buy anything online without checking Retail Me Not for a coupon code. It’s worth the extra 5 minutes for 20% off or free shipping!
Woot – Woot! is a great little site that does one thing, and does it well. Ok, well, it does TWO things. One, it offers an amazing deal every day. Two, it writes the most HILARIOUS descriptions of these items that I have ever read. These folks have a sense of humor. And it’s a bit snarky. LOVE. Their deal today is a laptop, and last week they had a car safety tool that helps break glass, etc. Also check out their Woot Side Deals forum for deals submitted by the community found elsewhere on the web.
Groupon – Groupon is another one of those sites that offers one deal a day. It’s regional, though, so you get deals related to Boston, LA, Pheonix, Seattle, Washington DC, etc. There are tons of cities on the list, so pick the one closest to you and keep an eye out for things like a $120 coupon to a car detailing place for $45, or half off a massage from the local spa.
So, where do you get a deal?
