PHOENIX - Do you love to shop, but love getting the best deal even more?
Whether you're shopping for a trip, a car or a new outfit, I have some sites you have to check out.
A car is a big investment, so make sure you do your research. I love Consumerreports.org , but you do have to buy a membership.
Another alternative that's free is Kelley Blue Book, the site is KBB.com . You can compare prices for new and used cars, read reviews, and even contact dealers directly from the site.
An even bigger investment is a house. Zillow.com is a great place to start because you can search for homes for sale or rent. You can also compare prices of homes in whatever area you want and see how much your house is worth.
And I love my electronics and one of my favorite places to shop is Crutchfield.com. The site has TV closeouts, an outlet store and great deals on all sorts of gadgets, plus very knowledgeable customer support staff.
If you're shopping for something in general, I love bradsdeals.com . The site shows you the hottest online deals.
Another very practical website is Retailmenot.com . No matter what online store you're shopping at, check for coupon codes on this site first. You'll find everything from free shipping, to huge discounts and there is even a rating system to let you know how reliable the codes are.
So no need to pay full price for anything, you just have to know where or how to shop.
