Is there anything better than having someone else find a deal for you? Deal Squad by RetailMeNot is literally — and I really mean literally — a site where real people will scour the web to find the best price on whatever gifts you have your eye on. Just slap the webpage into the Deal Squad tool and let their team of sales sleuths sniff out the best price.
Most people save 24% or more, which is a huge chunk of change, and it's even more impressive that it's a totally free service. What?!
My savings so far: $223.30 an a Samsung TV
Go forth online shoppers and be safe out there!
With these weapons in your shopping arsenal, you'll be able to conquer your gift lists faster than you can say "I hate checkout lines," but remember to be smart out there. If you see a deal land in your email or flying by your timeline on Facebook that seems sketchy — especially if it's from a site you don't recognize or haven't heard of before — remember that some deals really are too good to be true.
Throwing your credit card number into strange places is a recipe for a holiday disaster, and you might be helping some thief put a down payment on their new yacht instead of scoring that cheap iPhone you thought you bought.
