Comparison Shopping

The real beauty of the Internet shines through when it helps you find the best price on any given item. You don’t have to run from store to store. You don’t even have to jump from website to website. You simply surf over to a comparison shopping website and let the website do the work of finding and comparing the prices on the item for which you are shopping.

For instance, I visited PriceGrabber to compare prices on a Canon PowerShot digital camera. The prices ranged from $157.97 to $239.99 and the website listed 54 online stores where it could be purchased. One nice feature of PriceGrabber and many other comparison websites is that after people purchase the item, they often return to the comparison site to write a review of the item. So when I visited just one website, I got 54 prices, 16 product reviews, a detailed description of the camera, and full specifications from the manufacturer. Some of these comparison sites will even watch the price of an item for you and notify you by email if the price comes down. Finding a bargain has never been easier! If you have never been to a comparison shopping site before, you will be amazed. These sites enable you to compare every thing from magazine subscriptions to automobiles.

This list contains a few comparison shopping sites available online:
