Do you want to find some priced just right discount websites? Are you a savvy shopper? Keep a close eye on your budget? Are you an entertainment lover, wine connoisseur, or candy fanatic?
We all love to treat ourselves once in awhile. But books, DVDs and CD’s can be pricey. Wine can sometimes be out of sight and the packaging of candy seems to be getting smaller and smaller.
The following web sites will help you indulge in your passions and save some cash. Here are some great discount web sites when you want to treat yourself to music, movies, books and more.
If you love music:
SecondSpin.com: I love Second Spin and have ordered from them various times. They offer used CD’s, DVD’s and Vinyl and prices are very good. They often run promotions and specials. Shipping is a standard $3.99 on all orders in the U.S.
They also have a great variety. Order something that is defective? No worries, they will send you a return label for an exchange. This must be done within 30 days of ordering. Looking to make some money? They will buy your used CD’s and DVD’s. They will even reimburse you for the shipping.
Deep Discount.com: Deep discounts offers new movies/tv shows, cds, vinyl, fitness accessories, Blu-ray and DVD’s, electronics, video games, etc. Everything on the site is brand new.
If you love books:
Book Outlet: I came across Book Outlet last year when I was Christmas shopping. They have a good selection of discounted books. Sometimes you will find what you’re looking for and sometimes you won’t. They do have really good prices.
I got my Mom a cookbook by chef Lydia Bastianich for $13.00, normally $30. I also ordered other books for friends last year. Another perk is every time you order a book you get a $5 coupon for your next order. (Limit 1 coupon per order regardless of quantity.)
Thriftbooks: Thriftbooks is a new and used book store online. Each book must pass a quality control test before being offered for sale. Orders over $10 have free shipping. They are environmentally conscious in that they ship books in 100% recycled packaging.
Also, if there is no demand for a book they either donate it to charity or recycle it, keeping more waste out of our land fills. They have reasonable prices and a very good selection.
If you love candy:
Thewholesalecandyshop.com This web site is a candy lovers dream. You can buy all kinds of candy in bulk which is good for larger families. (Think treats for potty training? Or a special treat in a lunchbox?) You can also buy single candy bars as well.
They also sell cough drops in bulk which would be good for large families in the winter time. This would also be a great web site to look at around Halloween time. They have lots of variety and good prices.
If you’re old enough to drink wine:
WineExpress.com: Wine Express has a lot of wines to choose from. You can purchase by the bottle or by the case. You can shop by type, country, expert rating, price, on sale, etc.
Tastingroom.com: Tastingroom.com sells sample size 50ml bottles. These are about the size of a pour at a wine tasting.
Not only is this a great site for wine connoisseurs but also for those just learning about wines. This is because consumers can buy mixed sampler packs at extremely reasonable prices. These are some greatdiscount websites. So the next time you want to go on a mini shopping spree, have had a bad day, or just want something new, surf on over to these sites.
You may find what you really want at a steal of a deal. Think of them as discount websites at their finest.
