 Social media has forever changed how we shop.   

New-and-improved shopping search engines (e.g. Shopzilla) provide quick price checks from lots of retailers, online as well as brick and mortar. You can find great deals on these sites, as well as merchant ratings, feedback scores based on hundreds of consumer responses.  Some of the retailers need to get rid of excess inventory.

Here’s a few comparison shopping sites to try. – get consumer feedback on retailers and compare prices from “tens of thousands of retailers” in the U.S. and Europe. Type in what you’re looking for or select one of the categories. –Type in a product in the “Find it” box and you’re on your way to comparing values on electronics, home & garden, health and beauty, food and wine, video games, clothing, hotels—“millions of products”. – gives you price comparisons right where you live, as well as listing all the local ads in one place. 

Woot!  – a comparison membership site that works with retailers to sell excess inventory daily—at a steep discount. Note this site is mostly about listing deals and community forums offering opinions on and alerting others to new deals. – is another community driven, deal sharing bargain site meant to help shoppers in making the best purchase decisions. 

Google Product Search  – The site allows you to filter selections for free shipping, new items and different locations (which comes into play for the off-line stores.),, camelbuy and camelsounds are specific to retailers. Amazon, NewEgg, Backcountry, Best Buy and, respectively. It sends customers each retailers price drop alerts and price history charts, and does require you to sign up. – this site’s goal is to list every online store in one place, thousands of trusted stores, for price comparisons. It boasts over 162,000 stores and 244,000,000 products as of 2011. – also does price comparisons, but on electronics (e.g. camcorders, GPS, home theater systems, laptops) It includes lots of information on the gadgets themselves and with comparison to similarly styled products. 

Yahoo Shopping  – allows consumer to sort searches by store, brand or price. It also allows visitors to find sale products and rebates among its 94 million product listings. Product reviews by Yahoo users come up with each product search.
