Amazon Deals

You may do better shopping local!

You should know that Amazon doesn't always have the best deals. They certainly have the beat select but don't expect them to have the best deals.

You should shop around.

Screwdriver Example

This past weekend I was in a local hardware store buying some motor oil for my lawn motor. As I was browsing around the store, I was checking some of the screwdrivers. I was thinking that I should pick up a Phillips and a slotted screwdriver. You can never have too many screwdrivers.

I saw that they were under $3 each and decided to get them.

When I got home, I pulled out my Amazon app, and scanned the barcode. I was surprised that the exact same screwdriver is selling for $11.90.

Wow!

Other Products Too

I have seen this with other products, such as USB Wall Chargers and Lightning cable. I have seen these at "Five Below" for around $5 each. They go for about $8+ on Amazon.com.

Shop Smart on Amazon.com

No question that Amazon.com is a very convenient place to shop. I would recommend checking local stores for smaller items as they may be cheaper.

Just because Amazon.com offers "free shipping" doesn't mean that you're getting the best deal in town.
