What is it?: Calling itself the “Future of the Search Engine,” this web site allows users to create FREE accounts and create customized lists of items you are in the market to buy.

How does it work?: After creating a free account, users can search for items and discover the lowest online prices. The site also allows users to see consumer reviews.

There are many ways to search the site. It has categories and sub menus on the tool bar of the web site, and there is a search box function. For example, you could enter “42 inch LCD” or you could enter the UPC (Universal Product Code) of the exact product you want.

Other Things you should know: One of the best features is the ability to create customized lists. This allows users to build a “wish list” of items and receive alerts when the item appears on the site at a lower price!  

Other web deals: Go to, use the code PUMPKIN and save 70 percent!
