The Internet is the largest shopping showcase we have at our disposal: from clothing and accessories to books and music, to furniture, travel, and food, we can buy virtually everything online. However, just like in physical shopping, in online shopping there are also some ways for consumers to save money.

Buying online has a lot of positive aspects, like no need to leave home or stand in queues, the product arrives at our door with all the convenience, among others. In addition, online stores usually offer lower prices than the physical stores, mainly because sellers have lower costs with the products. Due to the high competition between sellers on the Internet, users can easily get some nice deals, if they know where to find them. Let's look at two great places that help online costumers to save some bucks.

Dealhacker (by Lifehacker)

Lifehacker is a great site, offering many tips and tricks for our everyday lives. It also has Dealhacker, a section that, in a daily (or almost) basis, aggregates some of the best deals found online, organized in a very neat and simple to check way.

Dealhacker covers deals from a vast array of areas, like apps, gadgets, computers, peripherals, accessories, movies, games, photography, and so on.

Shop for Smiles

Since you are shopping, why not take that and help someone in the process? Shop for Smiles is one of the many sites with coupon codes you can find on the Internet, but with a very positive twist: it promotes a variety of merchant discounts and coupons, allowing people to save money while, at the same time, supporting a charity they prefer, at no additional cost for them.

When you first enter Shop for Smiles, you are prompted to choose your preferred charity to support. Then, just navigate through the several coupons and discounts available, and select the deal you want. When you click the link to go to the retailer's website and make a purchase, Shop for Smiles gets a referral fee and/or commission, 95% of which goes to the charity you selected.
