Who doesn’t like a great bargain?
I thought I share two of my favorite bargain websites, each of which makes RSS feeds available. If, as J. D. Lasica has famously said, RSS is “news that comes to you,” then RSS feeds from shopping sites must be “bargains that come to you.”
My two current favorites are:
DealNews – http://dealnews.com
More Stuff for Less – http://morestuff4less.com/
Don’t forget about Kevin Kelly’s fantastic Cool Tools, also with an RSS feed, for reviews and recommendations of great products.
Another supremely cool tool comes from Watchcow.Net, which allows you to create an RSS feed based on your Amazon Wish List so you can be automatically notified when prices change. Imagine being able to spot when an expensive item you pine for becomes available from a third party “used and new” seller for a fraction of its usual price.
A few bargains I spotted this morning:
From DealNews: “MicroCenter.com offers the Kensington SaddleBag notebook bag, model no. 64079/4, for $19.99, as a reader found. It’s the lowest price we know to be available by $9. Add $5 for shipping.” (Fantastic price for a great bag – I’ve used one of these for years after a recommendation from Neil Squillante.)
From DealNews: “The Craftsman 60-piece Mechanics Tool Set is back at $29.88 at Sears.com. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen. Add $5.25 for shipping or order it online for in-store pick-up. <http://dealnews.com/newsdaily.html?article,81179>”
