Default Compare prices on-line before you buy (even with a coupon)!

I compared three items on the internet for their online prices that appear to be "regular prices"

The items were:
45 mm Deluxe Olfa Rotary Cutter - store A: 15.87; store B: 32.99
60 mm Deluxe Olfa Rotary Cutter - store A: 23.70; store B: 49.99
5" Gingher Sewing Scissors - store A: 19.97; store B: 29.99

Store A does not usually give percent off coupons.

I did not know that one could get Gingher's at store A, but apparently one can order on-line.

It was an interesting exercise.

Of course, if you are like me - I see it, I want it, I buy it (when I can)

I always compare prices on line before buying. I save more then my internet cost. I find the best buys are listed on Facebook. Also did you know if a certain item is viewed on Amazon more then a few times in a certain amount of time it is auto raised in price. If you find a great deal on Amazon buy it before posting about it!

I also like to check if there is free shipping or discount priority flat rate shipping too.

That's why if I see something I want, but am not in a hurry about it, I put it in my 'saved items' in my Amazon cart. Then every time I log in and check my cart, Amazon tells me if prices have gone up or down (sometimes it's just by pennies). I just watch and wait, and when it takes a satisfactory dip in price I buy it!
