Nowadays, you can do just about anything on the Internet, including score some great deals!
This is a great idea! Zilok.com is a website that allows users to rent items from individuals living nearby. The idea goes something like this…Say you’re in need of a portable power-generator for next weekend’s big tailgating party, but you can’t afford or don’t want to purchase a new one. Through Zilok.com, you can search for people in your area that may have a generator they’re willing to lend for a small fee (usually a few dollars a day). Once you’re done with the item, you simply return it to its owner. This way, you’re able to get use out of an item without having to make a large investment and purchase something you may only use once or twice.
Ever wish that you could find the cheapest, best deals on everything from credit cards to cell phone services? Of course you do, we all have. Now, you can use Billshrink to do the investigative work for you! When you go to Billshrink.com, you’re asked to input information regarding the particular service you’re looking to save money on. You can choose from credit cards, wireless service, television service, gas stations, and savings and CDs. You’re asked several questions concerning your current usage and the amount you are currently paying for the service in question. Then, Billshrink scours the Internet and emails you if a better deal is found.
This site allows anyone the convenience of a personal shopper. Instead of searching the web for hours looking for sites that carry items in your size from your favorite designers and labels, let Shopittome do it for you! The site boasts that it “finds you sales on your favorite brands in your size,” so what’s to lose? All you have to do is input your clothing sizes and your favorite clothing labels or designers. Then, Shopittome searches the Internet for items that match your criteria and email you when they find something.
