Even though it’s a gorgeous day here in New York City, I, like millions of Americans, am excited to spend some quality time indoors with my computer, scouring for Cyber Monday deals. We all know mega-sites like Amazon (its CEO just won Fortune’s Businessperson of the Year award), Walmart and Best Buy will be offering their expected markdowns, but scour less-frequented pockets of the web and you’ll find irresistible deals. Here are three of my favorites that stay good all year long:
• 1saleaday.com: This daily deals site offers one top deal every day in each of several fun and functional categories. Just be sure to order during the specified calendar day (there’s a helpful countdown clock) or deals like that Barnes & Noble Nook for $99 will disappear into the abyss.
• CouponsForChange.org: This is the charitable wing of virtual clippings behemoth Coupons.com. It offers holiday shoppers a massive array of coupons and deals from big-name retailers, and for every three coupons you download from the site, it donates a meal to a child at risk through Feeding America.
• Slickdeals.net: This one’s for tech geeks and home entertainment nuts: You can snag everything from a 42-inch plasma TV for $199.99 to a Stanley wet/dry vacuum for $20. The well-organized site does the grunt-work for you and saves countless hours of deal-hunting time by showcasing the best steep discounts from around the web.
