“ Internet Site / Price Comparison „
Offer of the day is another bargain finding site. It lists items that certain websites have reduced, sort of like a price chcecker but all in one place for lots of websites such as Tesco, Marks and Spencers, Amazon, Argos, Boots, Currys, to name only a few.
It lists a picture of the item and the RRP alongside the % of sale to the new price. So for example original price £50 75% reduced now long £12.50. and then i links to the offer.
You can search by largest discount, newest deals, price, price & p&p. You can also search by Todays best, Items reduced today and biggest reductions. Alongside this you can search by HIgh street and online stores.
There is also categories along the top such as Home, Technology, Entertainment, Men, Women. If you hover your mouse arrow over these it then shows you further options to search.
(In fact while just checking the site to make sure I havent missed anything I have found a couple of bargains (argos are selling terrys choc orange for just 25p!!)
There is also a discount code page for online stores and sometimes there is offeroftheday special discounts too. If there is a discount code to be used they usually add this to the sale price, (ie the sale price includes the discount and therefore to get the price you have to use the discount code)
They add new shops all the time and they are open to suggestions of new stores if you want them added.
I find that MandM direct is usually at the top of the list of biggest reductions because they always have sales on and the RRP is ridiculous anyway so it looks like you are getting a REAL bargain when in fact most stores dont sell their product at the skyhigh RRP anyway.
A must site to check before you buy anything online to save you lots of cash.
It sounds like another "daily deals" site, but offer of the day (OOTD as i will call it) is much more then that, it lists all the discounts and price reductions from many top on-line and high street stores in a very easy to use site.
The home page opens with a list of "today's best offers" featured in the main window but this is just a quick look at the newest deals, you can also switch this main page to view Items reduced today or biggest reductions.
You can navigate the site in 2 different ways, first tabs across the top let you select categories such as Kitchen & laundry,outdoor & DIY and home entertainment, hovering over these tabs will show you a list of more specific categories such as cookers, fridges and dishwashers to select from.
The other way to navigate is to use the large list of retailers down the left hand side of the page, selecting from this list brings up all the offers from the Chosen retailer, listing the largest reductions first.
You also get a search box if you don't want to look through all the menu's
Using the site
Each item has a small picture, a short description of the item and then a run down of the RRP, the % your saving and the price it is now, there is also a retailer logo/name and a go to offer button
Clicking on the go to offer button opens a new browser window and you leave the deal of the day site and go to the retailers own site where you can then buy your item, you do not purchese any items from the deal of the day site.
You can also register with the site so you can set up a watch list to look out for spacific items been reduced
From Argos to Vodaphone and from 1% to 90% this site is full with top retailers offering some big discounts and it is updated every couple of hours, so you dont have to go surfing all the shopping sites, i have bought loads of goods from Argos, Boots, M & S and other online shops by finding the deals OOTD's site.
I can't say there is anything bad about OOTD really, but i will say there is one thing to watch out for on here and most shopping sites.
The discounts are shown as % saved on the RRP which in many cases these days is an over inflated silly price anyway, so dont be fooled, if it was never worth the RRP then 20% off the RRP wont make it a bargain!
