RSS Shopping Site Guide



I reviewed and updated this list in Nov., 2009.

As I researched my post about holiday shopping using RSS feeds, I realized how convenient it would be to have a summarized list of all the shopping sites that offer RSS feeds. I also received some great suggestions for shopping sites I didn’t know about. In my previous post I failed to look at MSN shopping which offers RSS feeds for specific search terms and searches a large list of major retailers.

I decided to create a list of all the shopping sites I know of that offer RSS feeds. I’ve indicated whether the feeds are preset like “newest items” versus feeds that allow you to customize by search term. Feel free to bookmark this page and use it as your reference guide for holiday shopping. It’s everything you need right in one place.

I also had a commenter tell me about a nice software-based RSS reader called Snarfer that bridges the gap between web-based and software-based readers by allowing you to sync your feeds with Bloglines.com. I’ve tried it out and really like it. It may be my new RSS reader of choice.

Please post any sites I’ve missed in the comments section and I’ll add them to this list.

  2. Max Cascone Says:

    You forgot three of the best: Techbargains.com, slickdeals.net, and bensbargains.net. I’m not affiliated with any of them, i just use them all the time.

  3. Jeffrey Price Says:

    For tracking price changes in Amazon.com products, I frequently use (and enjoy) rsstalker.com.

    You can setup individual items (by ASIN), categories, or your entire wish list.

  4. sjpeer Says:

    I added all the sites mentioned so far except slickdeals.net. I’ve used that site before but lately it seems to be down. I’ll keep checking and add it once I know it’s up.

    Holiday is coming, and shopping is a painful happy thing. Last night, I am surfing blogsphere, and found a pretty cool blog, RSS Shopping Site Guide, it list more and more RSS shopping sites.

  6. Getting Finances Done » Find the deal of all deals Says:

    [...] I’ve been quietly updating my list of RSS Shopping Websites and I thought this new site was worth mentioning specifically. Boddit.com aggregates results from many of the major “deals” sites (most of which are on my list). I’m into convenience and efficiency so boddit.com is right up my alley. As I played with it, I was very satisfied with the thoroughness of the results. Some aggregation sites tend to be buggy but I haven’t run into any problems yet. When I searched for 17″ LCD monitor I just bought (that’s right, I finally got one) it properly showed the great $99 Best Buy deal I took advantage of (there aren’t even any rebates). [...]

    [...] General Shopping 57. Become an educated shopper. Subscribe to the Consumerist. 58. Power shop with RSS feeds. Here is an excellent guide. 59. Use ShopLocal.com to search for deals. Here is a brief explanation of the service. Computers 60. Check out Dell. They have excellent prices on personal computers. Keep an eye out for seasonal discounts. Avoid bundling the extras, like software and cameras, as you can usually find a better deal elsewhere. 61. Search eBay. There are some great computer deals on eBay, but you have to be careful. ONLY buy from a trusted retailer with very high feedback. 62. What are your computer needs? Internet and writing reports? Then you probably do not need the latest whiz-bang processor… It’s a different story for all the gamers out there… 63. Are you a teacher or a student? You may be able to qualify for a discount. It never hurts to ask! 64. Shop around for ink cartridges. They are outrageously expensive at office supply stores. eBay and online retailers are the way to go! Electronics 66. eBay, eBay, eBay. Always search eBay before buying electronics in a store. 67. Check out price comparison websites. 68. For complicated electronics, like cameras, I will usually go into a store so I can have my questions answered directly. I also like to handle the product in person. If I like it, I go home and buy it online. 69. Avoid extended warranties. They are usually a rip-off, and a HUGE moneymaker for retailers, which is why they push them so hard. Personally I am an exception with big ticket, hard to replace, items like plasma’s and expensive stereo equipment. I usually weigh the cost of the warranty against the cost of replacement, and determine if it makes sense. 70. Check Consumer Reports for research. Nothing is worse than buying a dud, then having the desire to go out and buy ANOTHER item. 71. Do blog research for the same reason. 72. SD Cards, buy them on eBay. These have HUGE markups in stores.

    It matters not whether you win or lose; what matters is whether I win or lose.

    Hi,

    I just wanted to let you know that StealDeals.net was recently rebranded to DealStop.com. It is still the same ownership, just a new look and feel. I was hoping you could update your StealDeals.net link above to reflect the new website: DealStop.com!

    Thanks so much!
    Dave Kohnke.
