  • OverstockThis is the reigning champ in bargain sites, thanks to the breadth of its merchandise and the great prices. Overstock specializes in hawking excess merchandise from other retailers, which means their inventory is diverse and constantly changing.
  • DealsPlus is much like the other popular deal finders listed but with a twist: It integrates social bookmarking features à la Digg or Delicious to help the most popular deals rise to the top. DealsPlus users submit deals and vote on the submitted deals they like; popular deals make the DealsPlus home page
