Deals Deals Deals – What’s Not To Love?

Deal Score0

Point me to someone who doesn’t love a deal and I’ll show you a liar.

It’s not just that you’re saving money (which is a good enough reason all by itself) but it’s also a great feeling when you can buy something cheaply. It feels kind of like you’ve ‘put one’ over the man.

Online deal making is like working the stock market. You have to be diligent and check the sites every day to see what they’ve got. But one suggestion. Don’t buy things you don’t need just because it’s cheap. The whole purpose of savings is exactly the opposite. To buy things that you need, cheaply. I’d recommend setting Google alerts for items you’re interested in.

So let’s get to it.

What are some of the best online sources for daily deals? We list them out for you.

Dailysteals.com

Excellent site for tech stuff. Cell phones, head phones, speakers and so on. Both new and refurbished. According to them they are “the leading site for the deals so hot they are practically steals.” Hence the name.

DailySteals has recently launched a Groupon-like “group buying” deal page, which offers huge discounts on hot ticket items based on volume. So if you like ‘community buying’ you might be interested in taking a gamble on a popular item that you think a lot of people may be interested in.

They have a Facebook page where you can follow them for daily alerts on new deals.

Itechdeals.com

Another tech deals site because one can never have too much technology, even if you aren’t a geek. Why even your grandma probably would love a new iPhone 8S, don’t you think?

Itechdeals have a new deal every six hours, says their site. They don’t have a robust Facebook presence yet, so we recommend setting Google alerts for specific products so you don’t have to go crazy every six hours. Or subscribe to their newsletter will give you all the info you need.

From headphones, cameras, computers, high-quality yet low-cost cables, chargers and audio deals… there’s a lot available on this site. Even camera accessories, phone cases, laptop sleeves and more

Dealgenius.com

Already over 10 years in business, Dealgenius is a nicely designed sight that has not only technology but lifestyle products as well, this site is a nice mix between Sharper Image and your local dollar store.

With a newsletter, a very good customer service and return policy, (free returns within 90 days)  we really like this site.

Their ‘IQ Points’ is a loyalty program where you earn IQ Points on every purchase and bonus points for purchasing certain items.  The points are like cash and can be redeemed for merchandise.

With a decent Facebook presence, you can follow them to keep abreast of their new offerings.

According to Bloomberg, the site engages in the online retail of home goods, tools, kitchen gadgets, electronics, apparel, toys, pet care products, health products, beauty products, craft and scrapbooking supplies, and more in the United States and internationally. The company was founded in 2004 and is based in Chicago, Illinois.

A4c.com

With some of the lowest prices in the market on both new and refurbished, branded electronics A4c is worth a look-see.

A4c explains what a refurbished product means, and it doesn’t sound too bad at all. Very often people return items because they are the wrong colour, or some customer has simply changed their mind. Sometimes it’s because there are defects, in which case, A4C’s repair people do a proper and thorough job of fixing it before reselling. “Once the merchandise has been restored, techs then grade it cosmetically (A, B, C etc.) to inform the consumer of its appearance. All of the refurbished items sold at A4C are either Grade A or B refurbished merchandise unless otherwise specified, and have been repaired and re-inspected to ensure they operate and perform as good as new, and are as cosmetically close to their original appearance as possible.

Besides being way cheaper than an original product, with A4C’s excellent return policy and warrantee, you get the best advantage.

Their Facebook page allows you to see the latest items they’ve added upline.

Buydig.com

In business for over 10 years, BuyDig has the experience to make your shopping experience a decent one. Google ratings are at 4.6% which is a 90% rating in terms of customer satisfaction, making it one of the better deal sites around.

They offer free shipping, a 45-day money back guarantee and some their blowout deals are noteworthy.

The brands featured include Canon, Samsung, Samsonite, Nikon, Sony, LG, Cuisinart and more… covering a spectrum of items from kitchen items to luggage and of course home electronics.

You can buy brand new items or refurbished items… it’s your choice. A good Facebook page means you can idly look at what they have on a particular day.

Here’s a link to their daily deals section.

Adorama.com

Originally established in 1979 as a storefront and based in New York City, their motto is ‘More Than a Camera Store.’ Seamlessly moving their model online, they offer everything from electronics, cameras, video equipment to drones, computers and surveillance equipment, Adorama offers deals as they get them. Their specials are very good ‘open box’ deals, (open box is usually brand new items) their prices are often below market.

An interesting option featured is the ability to rent equipment. Not often seen on deals sites. Especially good for people who are making videos or films and don’t have their own equipment.

With a good Facebook presence, they say, ‘In addition to providing product solutions for your tech needs, Adorama provides digital printing services through AdoramaPix, learning resources through AdoramaTV, and product rentals through the Adorama Rental Company. We also have a great trade-in program for when you’re ready to upgrade your equipment.’
