Steals and Deals Sites

Reading Morpheus' post about Belkin coupons reminded me that I wanted to start a "tech steals and deals" thread for our members.

I realize that there are quite a few of these sites out there...
TotalDeals
Ben's Bargains
TechBargains
Slickdeals
Deals on the Web
and even Overstock.com

Alot of these guys have the same info and just repeat each other. But I recently came across a really cool site, xpBargains, which I think beats them all. Here's an example of their current PDA bargain searches:

Quote:
May. 16 Exp: May. 21 Lowest Price: $400 deal talk(0)
Store Rating: Product Reviews: rate it

Very hot deal. CompUSA has the Sony CLIE UX40 Handheld for only $400 - $100 instant discount (exp 5/21) = $300 w/ penny shipping.

Built-in Bluetooth, 310K Camera w/ 3X Digital Zoom, Flip & Rotate Design, keyboard, Video recording and playback, MP3.
While some of the other sites have this deal, it's generally buried. XPB has its own PDA Deals page. I also noticed last week that they were the only site that pointed out that you could combine offers at Overstock.com to get a Tungsten T3 for $260. Can you say 'scha-weet deal'?! (Note: Techbargains, which I really do like alot -- particularly their memory price listings -- has the TT3 deal listed on their front page, but for $282!)

XPB has also just started a sister-site, xpGadgets, which looks somewhat redundant but useful for new consumers who want basic info.



Do you have cool tech bargain links you wanna share? Any you love more than others? Any tips? Post 'em here!

Yup. I often look at pricegrabber first to compare with other bargains. Btw, here is the direct link to pricegrabber's PDA list:

Yea, I use PriceGrabber too, but I've seem to find better deals looking at XPBargains. Like I said, they just seem to do the leg work.

For ex, I've been looking at the T|T3 lately and no one else has pointed out the coupon savings at Overstock.



Any other sites you like?

Btw, yes, Froogle totally qualifies...


and it rocks!

I remember when they first launched, I spent about 2 hours marvelling at the Ikea catalog online. Goofy, I know, but they don't support any online product info (or didn't at the time).
