Woot! Woot!

Woot! Woot!

The exclamation mark is part of their name. That should tell you something about one of our favorite places to shop. It's not just full of great deals, but actually fun to shop at. Though they have funny item descriptions that often say little or NOTHING about the item, they do feature product specifications if you're interested. Even the e-mails they send us every day are funny.

In other words, Woot is the rare shopping site that doesn't seem to take itself too seriously. Except when it comes to their prices. Luckily for all of us their prices are nothing to laugh at. Many times this year we've found the best price on a popular item at Woot. Shipping is $5, but you're unlikely to care because we've seem them beat even Amazon often enough on price, sometimes by as much as 40%.

The catch, you ask? Their deals don't last long. It's just not that kind of place. Whether the deal is on a popular tablet, a batting cage, a cookware set, or even a case of Merlot (yes, really), Woot's best Woots (that's what they call their hottest deals) often come and go within a short time. A deal may be advertised as "valid for 3 days" but almost always include the following..."or until sold out."

That means you have to pull the trigger quickly if you want in on a hot Woot (great, now I'm doing it too.)

Where should you look for their best deals? At the top of each page at the site, they're divided in these categories...



Get your Groupon Part II


Get your Groupon Part II

So it's Friday, and you have plans for the weekend. Or maybe you don't, but you'd like to get out and do something. But what, exactly? Maybe a movie? Dinner with friends? How about some family fun at a theme park? Or maybe a nice relaxing massage?

What we love most about Groupon is that they have discounts on all of that great stuff. Whether you're looking for a discount on lunch in Chicago, a bargain on a facial in Colorado Springs, or cheap tickets to Colonial Williamsburg, odds are you'll find your savings at our favorite "social" site.

Heck, you can pretty much plan your day, weekend, or entire vacation at Groupon. For just one example, Type "Orlando" in the Location box at the site, and you'll see what we mean. You could rent a condo for $82 per night, grab a $7 lunch at a Brazilian restaurant, and save a bunch on tickets to petting zoos, bowling and numerous other fun activities. Imagine getting a discount on practically everything you do on a seven day stay. Big savings, to be sure.

What's that, you already know that groupon saves you on fun stuff to do? Well, how about stuff you want to buy?

In the past few years, Groupon Goods has become more and more active in the retail business as well. You'll now find everything from designer handbags to nutritional supplements on sale there. In fact, a number of the best deals we've seen in the past few months have been at Groupon Goods. To give you an idea, here are just a few items we've found at BEST EVER prices in 2015 so far.

Little Big Planet 3, Big Boss Insta Mop, Able Planet Noise Cancelling Headphones, 5lb. MuscleTech Premium Whey Protein Plus, GoPro Hero4 Camera, TRX Suspension Trainer Basic Kit, iRobot Braava 321, Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity Bundle, Ray-Ban Sunglasses, Samsung Galaxy Mega 16GB 4G LTE Smartphone, ProSonic GLOW Cleansing Brush Set, Sol Republic x Motorola Speaker...

And that's just two months worth! They're beyond competitive, and shipping is cheap on most items, and free if you spend just $24.99.

Whether you're looking for something great to do, or something great to buy, we think you should get your Groupon. And get it often.

The Best Deals of the Day!


The Best Deals of the Day!

Every day, hundreds of sites offer great prices on one or more items in some form of "Deal of the Day" offer. Whether you're looking for running shoes or power tools, you'll find great deals on all sorts of stuff if you know who has the best of these one day deals. And so without further froofrah (is that a word?) here is our list of ten very reputable vendors whose websites we check at the start of our day, every day.

1SaleaDay - A site devoted to daily deals. The deals span categories from electronics to sporting goods, and the prices are often hot.

Amazon - While their Gold Box Deal of the Day once meant a single deal at a huge discount, Amazon now typically features more than one great daily deal. While there is no way to know what kind of merchandise you'll find there on any given day, the Gold Box is our most highly recommended daily deal because the prices are often fantastically low.

Best Buy - You'll see it once, for 24 hours or until it sells out. It can be a remote start for your car, a video game console, or maybe an HDTV. Regardless, the discount is usually large.

Ebay - Their Daily Deals rank high on our list for hot prices, especially on electronics. On any given day, you'll find large, one day price drops on gadgets like iPods, Microsoft Surface Tablets, laptops and much more. Ebay sells them through third party sellers, and gives you feedback ratings so that you know who you're dealing with.

Groupon - Activities have been their main foocus from the beginning. You can snag tickets to all sorts of fun activities for less, including theme parks, movies, even discounts on massages and dining. But they've expanded their "Goods" section and now feature excellent prices on everything from bed sheets to gaming consoles.

Joe's New Balance Outlet - For one day only, you'll find a pair of quality athletic shoes for ladies or gents at a deep discount. From New Balance cross-trainers to trail runners, there's a very good deal pretty much every day waiting for you at Joe's.

Sears - They call it their "Deal Heist," and it's more like a bunch of great deals on a variety of items. Our favorites are frequently on tools, most likely from Craftsman, and at prices that meet or beat the best prices anywhere else. Items like Nordictrack workout machines are also featured there pretty regularly.

Shnoop - One hot deal every day. Simple as that. One day it's a multi-pack of batteries, another day it's an Oral-B toothbrush...you never what they'll have. But just about every time we check it, the price is hot.

Woot - Need an electric scooter? How about a new set of cookware? Woot has great brands like Kitchenaid, GoPro, Samsung and more at hot prices, and their daily deals encompass everything from Monster Headphones to a quality Toilet Seat (yes, a toilet seat) at hot prices. Add $5 shipping on any order and you'll save at Woot with their Daily Deal, every darned day.




5 Reasons You Should Get Your Clothing at Amazon!




5 Reasons You Should Get Your Clothing at Amazon

1.) Huge variety - Whether you're looking for high-end apparel like Armani, or quality budget brands like Duck, the sheer variety of clothing for men, women and children available at Amazon is second to none. Amazon sells everything from $500 crocodile leather loafers to $7 skinny jeans.

2.) Amazon prices - On any given day, their prices are often at or near the lowest web price you'll find. But they get even lower when they feature...

3.) Daily and Weekly Deals - This is when the best deals happen. The Daily Amazon Gold Box often features big discounts on apparel for 24 hours only. For example, we've seen everything from Lucky Brand Jeans at 50% off the lowest price anywhere else, to Disney Children's apparel starting at $2. No that's not a typo. Disney clothing starting at $2.

4.) Big name brands - Maybe you see a Hugo Boss shirt or a pair of gorgeous Cole Haan oxfords in a store, and want to buy them, but don't like the exhorbitant price tag. That's where Amazon really excels. They often feature the chic names of the fashion world in some of their best deals. Even Gucci bags have popped up at unheard of prices. That's right, Gucci.

5.) Free shipping with Amazon Prime or orders over $35 - For $99 per year, you get a million (more or less) benefits when you use Amazon's Prime service. Our favorite is free two day shipping on tons of items, so that if you see a shirt that costs $14 you don't have to get your in cart total over $35 to get it delivered to your home. Even better, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial of Prime pretty much at any time. See the item, do a trial, get free shipping, keep Prime or cancel it. Win + win, right?

Of course, all of this is backed by Amazon's legendary customer service. If the item gets to your home and doesn't fit, or you just don't like it anymore, they'll be more than happy to take it back. Their staff are as customer friendly as anywhere on Earth, and they have the awards (year after year) to prove it.

If you aren't familiar with Amazon,  you can sign up for a 30-day FREE trial and enjoy FREE shipping.

The Amazon Prime Pantry!

Amazon-Pantry savvy shopper


The Amazon Prime Pantry!

For more than a year, Amazon has taken steps toward attracting grocery shoppers by offering some of the best discounts we've ever seen on everything from bathroom tissue to healthy snacks for the kids. They have done this with a combination of "Clippable Coupons" you click under the item picture combine with their popular Subscribe and Save service which discounts your purchase by 5%, and more importantly free shipping regardless of how much you spend.

To give you an idea just how big these combined discounts can be, here are just a few of our favorite Amazon grocery deals from the past week or so:

1.) 24 Rolls of Scott Towel Mega Roll Paper Towels $18.69 after coupon and S&S Service.

2.) Rogaine for Men Hair Regrowth Treatment Easy-to-Use Foam for $27.99 after $10 off coupon and S&S Service.

3.) 12-Pack Chicken of the Sea Premium Wild-Caught Pink Salmon, Skinless and Boneless for $10.74 with S&S Service.

4.) Huggies Simply Clean Fragrance Free Baby Wipes Refill (648 Count) for $10.37

5.) Scott Extra Soft Double Roll Tissue (9 Count, Pack of 4) for $14.65 after coupon and S&S Service.

The biggest advantage of the Subscribe and Save Service is that while you are signing up for a monthly delivery of a product, you can cancel delivery immediately after your first order ships. This means that you get the 5% discount (though we have seen bigger discounts on select items) and free shipping even if you only order the item one time. If you sign up for the Amazon Mom program, your discount is frequently 20% off on baby items in addition to any coupon which may be available.

Furthering their reputation as "the everything store" even more, Amazon now introduces the Amazon Pantry.

The design of this new program allows Amazon Prime members to receive up to 45 pounds of grocery products for just $6. But don't think you have to calculate the weight yourself. All you do is sign in to your Prime account and head to the "Pantry." From there you click on "Start Filling Your Prime Grocery Box" to do just that. As you add items, an icon will appear and tell you what percentage of your box has been filled. An informative video is currently available at the Pantry to help you get started.

As we find combined discounts, we'll post the best of them on our site. Of course, Every day, you'll find all the best deals from Amazon and around the web at Crazytowndeals.com.

Rhapsody - "an effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling." (Free Trial)

Rhapsody Trial

Rhapsody - "an effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling."

My favorite definition of the word comes from quizlet.com, who probably speaks for many of us. For me, it defines precisely how I feel about music.

The evolution of the delivery of music to our ears has spoiled us, folks. We're buying less CDs and relying more and more on great sites like Rhapsody to deliver the sweet sounds to our ears. To be honest with you, I think that's a good thing.

Think about it. Where once we got our sounds from some form of "hard copy", whether a record, a cassette, or "gasp!" even an 8 track tape, we now find ourselves relying more on streaming music services to help us rock. Or roll. Or mellow out to cool jazz. Or catch up on the hottest current hits from our favorite artists. Or all of the above, in one sitting if we feel like it.

And commercial radio? Though I feel just a tinge of sadness when I say it, I am finally free of the constant commercials and "DJ" banter. When I'm looking for music, that is usually all that I want.

Which brings us to our favorite music service of all: Rhapsody. Right now, for less than the cost of what I typically spent for a single CD in my younger days, Rhapsody now gives me all of this:

Music without Ads.
The ability to listen on my phone or laptop, any time I want.
Millions of songs in every genre I can imagine. Yes, millions.
Recommendations, playlists and other ways to discover new music.

Only you can decide whether you'll love Rhapsody the way I do. But Rhapsody offers a free 30 day trial of their standard service, and a free 14 day trial of their new "Unradio service" so you can use it and decide for yourself. I highly recommend you try it, and effusively express yourself.

Rhapsody 30-day Free Trial!

Glasses For Less!

 Glasses For Less!

Back in the low-tech "Not Always Good ole'  Days" there was a sense of impending panic when someone in the homestead achieved less than stellar results on the annual eye test. News that a  member of the family was going to need glasses was accompanied by a  mixture of dread and doubt, caused mostly by the once exorbitant cost of purchasing a quality pair of focals. Basically, there was no way to get your glasses for less, at least not one that was legal. Of course,  contact lenses were even more expensive, and often out of the question,  as a second mortgage was not far away if more than one family member  needed those!

But this is 2014, and things have changed. It is  now easier than ever to get your contacts or prescription glasses for  less, and without sacrificing quality or speed. These sites are fast,  and they carry the same, high quality lenses and frames you'll find at  the best stores.

Our favorite website for getting your glasses  for less is Coastal.com. Their layout is simple, quick and does not  require a medical degree or Microsoft certification to understand. You  simply choose the style you want, enter some of the information from  your prescription, and checkout.

Here's how easy it is to get your glasses for less at Coastal.com:

First, you grab your prescription and head to the site. Next, you choose from  tons of styles from well known makers, including an entire section of  glasses that will cost you just $49 for a pair! Need contacts? You can  search by name or just click on the Contact Lenses heading at the top of the page. There you'll find all of the best brands like Acuvue,  Dailies, Bausch & Lomb and a host of others.

At checkout,  you'll enter a few items from your prescription. Of course, if you get  confused and wish to speak to a live human being, Coastal lists a toll  free phone number on their website so you can ask for assistance  anytime. Our guess is that you won't need it. But it's nice to know you  can get your glasses for less, AND get great customer service if you  feel the need. Or if the kids are all at school and you just want  someone to talk to.

Anyway, we thought you'd like to know that  you really CAN get your glasses for less. In most cases, you can get  them for much less. And Coastal.com is a great place to do it. We've  used them ourselves, as our eyesight has, uhm, lost just a bit of  sharpness as we get a bit, uhm "less young."

Finally, we want you to know that their regular prices are low to being with, but we have  coupons to help you get an even better deal. Right now, you can avail  yourself of a trio of great coupon codes to get a truly great deal on  your glasses or contacts. Use one of them at checkout, then pat yourself on the back.

Get your Glasses for Less at Coastal.com  with one of the coupon codes below!
