    I normally check Bestbuy.com along with a few other of my favorite stores and then look at sites like pricegrabber.com, pricescan.com, bizrate.com, and dealtime.com to find the lowest prices. However, these sites only have access to a limited amount of stores and often I'll read on HTF about a deal at some other site. How do you find the best deals and what are some of your favorite web sites to check when you need something?

    well, I usually use HTF's 'Coupons and Bargains' section (see David Lambert's Weekly Wrapup) and WWW.DVDTALK.COM's 'DVD Bargains' section.

    What Rob said.
    Also check out DVD Price Search for obscure titles and random low prices not caught through other sources.

    I use DVD Price Search almost exclusively to confirm pricing on all my titles. I use DVD Talk Forum to find the deals in the first place - when it comes to early (and often unpublished) information, they are usually unparalleled. [​IMG]

    Daniel,
    I, like many who have replied, use www.dvdpricesearch.com. I am about 100 miles from the nearest Best Buy, etc., so it's not worth my time to look through those fliers. Sometimes I check Wal-Mart, but it's pretty much same-o, same-o every week.
    Hope this helps,
    Joseph

    Thanks for the tips everyone.

    I was also wondering how you shop for hardware.
