Shopping for Low Prices Online?
Then you've come to the right
place. There are several (what we call) shopping bots (shopping comparison sites) on the internet that allow you to do comparative
price shopping for virtually any item. From PJ's to Ming vases, portable MP3/CD players to digital cameras, these shopping
bots can save you both time and money.
But there are some things to keep in mind when you're comparative shopping:
Here are the
shopping bots we recommend.
Froogle.Com - established by the good folks at Google.Com. Although still in Beta, it offers up some of the lowest prices on the net.
Froogle also offers a "local shopping" option, which is really cool. Using your ZIP code, the site will show you
where you can shop locally for your item. But beware, some of the sites listed are local eBay drop-off stores and the price
listed is the initial posting price, not the current bid price.
Yahoo Shopping - great deals, good comparative prices, and consumer reviews makes this one of the best shopping bots around. Build your
own shopping list, even create your own store if you have products to sell.
- ShopSleuth strives to be the web’s most comprehensive and useful resource for all things shopping. Whether
you are looking for new brands or information about your favorite stores, you will find all the help you need on
Shopping.Com - an eBay company, they pioneered online comparison shopping. We really like this site. Join their club for up-to-date information
on all sorts of buying ideas.
NexTag.Com - They use a proprietary Search And Match (SAM™) technology that enables shoppers to quickly compare prices and find
the best deals on millions of products and services, including travel and real estate.
Shopzilla.Com - This is a really powerful shopping bot. Shopzilla gives you product pictures, detailed
descriptions and consumer reviews. You can even add all of the items you're shopping for to your Shopzilla List and compare
their features side by side.
- uses BottomLinePrice calculations (tax and shipping included in price), Storefronts marketplace (individuals without a
website can sell their own products), merchant ratings and reviews, detailed product information and reviews, side-by-side
product comparisons and email notification of the best prices and availability on the Internet.
- the new kid on the block, Become.Com directs you to research-related information that helps you best determine what
to buy, rather than providing you with search results composed of information unrelated to shopping or page after page of
merchants trying to sell you something.
- the elephant in the room. Amazon is constantly running deals and specials, especially around the various holidays (their
"Black Fridsay sales, for example). Always check Amazon for great prices and conparitive shopping.
Well, there you have it, our choices of the best shopping bots around. There are more, and if you have a

Merchants we Recommend
Special deals going on all the time at Wal*Mart - you really have to check back often.
If you're like me, you have a hard time remembering
passwords to various sites that require a login (like Shopping Sites). SO, here's the answer to that problem, RoboForm.
My favorite site for all sorts of interesting articals on Health, Fitness, and Lifestyles.
