I'm pretty sure half my gear I got thanks to Dealnews, and they're always worth a check for bargains before you start shopping.
Woot started off as the original daily deal site, and since being purchased by Amazon back in 2010, has expanded its empire to not just daily technology deals, but deals on wine, kids clothing and toys, technology and home electronics, independently designed t-shirts and apparel, and more. Woot, a community powered site full of bargains on virtually any item you can think of, from lingerie to computer components, all upvoted or downvoted by the community so you only see the deals that actually save you money.
The other Woot sites also go out of their way to offer more than just one deal a day, with many offering exclusive bargains and super-deep discounts for limited times, most notably their repeated and regular discounts on Gunnar glasses.
Almost nothing escapes Dealnews's eye: monitors and displays, TVs and home entertainment gear, headphones and audio equipment, GPS systems, even sunglasses and clothing are all available.
The backlog of deals is huge, and you just have to search for the product you're interested in to see what deals are active in that area and which ones have recently expired.
They also get a ton of exclusive deals you'll only find at Dealnews, and an excellent collection of holiday and Black Friday bargains.
We never wanted to miss a deal, and new ones were breaking and expiring all day.
Slickdeals is largely community powered, with members floating up coupon codes and sales available at retailers all over the web for the community to see and take advantage of, and it's not just on technology and electronics: apparel, local deals at nearby shops, travel and vacation packages, it's all there.
Or you can hop right to your favorite online retailer and see what they have to offer before you click purchase.
The forums are active and lively, and the deals never stop.
The holiday shopping season is revving up, which means it's time to search for some bargains so you don't go broke buying gifts for the people on your list.
There are dozens of deal sites out there, but not all of them are useful when it's time to actually find discounts on things you actually want to buy.
