Online Shopping and Deals

Since my birthday is around the corner I thought I would share some great deals so people can start their shopping. You know I really want a new video Ipod. Ha ha

Joking aside I have to say I am guilty of online shopping... especially shoes and electronics. I can get so much better of a deal by shopping online than at a store. In fact I recently used online coupons from Circuit City and saved almost $100 on my new digital camera. And an added bonus was I was able to pick it up at the store – no lines, no hassles – for almost $100 less than if I were to buy it in the store.

I know I have a few friends who are in the market for a new digital camera. I love my Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom. (in fact Jamie and Val both own the same camera and no Panasonic is not paying me to promote my camera) Besides the zoom feature, my favorite part is the different "scene"settings. At the Nascar race the setting I used allowed the cars to not appear as blurs. And it works great for sporting events and beach scenes (or snow scenes for my northern friends). I noticed some Circuit City coupons offering 12 percent off digital cameras and an additional $20 - $80 off as well. Add in free shipping or in store pick up and you are good to go.

Online shopping tip: Whenever you are planning on buying something online, do a little search for coupons or promotions. Many times you will be surprised at the coupons you find. I got the kids crocs (hush Val) for $15 with just online codes. And the same goes for shopping in the store, especially at Borders, Barnes and Nobles and Children's place. Maybe next Tuesday I will do a post with all my secret online coupon places. You will be amazed at what I find.

I buy electronics, books, makeup, and clothes online. Big surprise, eh? I always search for coupons, too. We should swap the best sites. I always find some good ones for J Crew and won't shop there without them!

Oh, and I always always buy all my photography things online whether it be ebay or one of my suppliers because it's always much cheaper, even after shipping charges.

I always check for coupon codes online, but I have an inkling that you may have some tricks up your sleeve, so please share!
