There is a veritable infinite universe of websites on the internet. Of that infinite number of sites a seemingly infinite fraction of them are looking to sell you something in some way. Commerce is the part of our lives that has been altered and advanced the most because of the world wide web. I for one have not purchased an album, a DVD, a movie ticket, a jacket, a t-shirt or a kitchen appliance in a “good” old fashioned store in about half a decade. Time is of the essence and when you can find online shopping deals between games of Angry Birds and updating your Twitter, why would you bother rubbing shoulders with the pack of mutants still bothering to shop at the local Mall?
Some people really love shopping. If they want a necklace they are going to hit up several jewelery stores and look at a number of different options. Not me, when my girlfriend wanted a necklace for a recent anniversary I immediately sprang to Google to hunt down the best jewelery deals. In the time it would take our analogue shopper to get from one store to the next I had managed to look over dozens of necklaces on several sites. When I finally found the perfect jewelry deals I was able to get her the perfect necklace and matching earrings.
Deal websites are obviously not perfect. The nature of them is to sell down merchandise and as a result some stuff is only actually available “until sold out.” That being said, there is so many more pros than cons here. When you hit deal websites you can compare pricing right in the comfort of your own home, from bed if you’d care to even! When I recently needed a new controller for my video game system (it is a vintage Sega Genesis if you were wondering) I hunted down the best electronics deals websites around. Then I scoured those for the highest savings. I charted all of the pricing information and within a half hour I had a brand new Sega Genesis remote on it’s way for under twenty dollars.
Deal websites are not all created equal but the trained eye can tell which websites are legit and which are not. After nearly fifteen years on the internet I think most of us are actually pretty aware of what makes a trustworthy deal website with valid online shopping deals and which doesn’t. Honestly, a good deal is a good deal, and shopping on the web saves you in every way!
