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. We asked you which sites you used, and this week we’re taking a look at the top five, based on your nominations.
Earlier in the week we You offered up plenty of options, and we tallied up your votes, but sadly we only have room for the top five.
While many deal sites focus on technology deals and electronics discounts, BradsDeals offers up discounts, price alerts, and coupon codes on other items we all buy: clothing, apparel, toiletries and small electronics (shavers, razors, etc), and jewelry. The site has a wealth of coupon codes for popular retailers and big box stores with names you’d recognize, and even offers printable coupons as well so you can run to a brick-and-mortar store when you don’t want to wait for shipping. If you’ve felt that other deal sites are huge electronics stores with tiny household sections and other departments, BradsDeals will fix that for you—think of more like a traditional department store, just only stocked with discounts and coupons you can use anywhere you want to shop.
Now that you’ve seen the top five, it’s time to put them all to a vote to decide the winner.
Honorable mentions this week go out to , which does host plenty of deals and bargains in addition to the coupon codes for sites around the web that made it famous. If you don’t already check RetailMeNot to see if there’s a coupon for the site you’re shopping on before you click purchase, you really should, even if you wind up being disappointed when there aren’t any. A little love goes out to , another deal site run by one person, and while it doesn’t have the broadest list of deals, the ones it does have are hand picked and frequently updated. That site hasn’t changed in years, but it’s still worth a bookmar
