This General SHOPPING LINKS page
! NOTE !
Like most 'LINKS' pages on the web, there will, no doubt,
be more and more dead links on this page over time.
It may be years at a time before I return to this page to
remove dead links and replace some links with better links.
In the meantime, try 'WEB SEARCH' links provided on this page.
Amazon.com - amazon.com
(general electronics and many other products ;
many more product reviews than most sites --- and most of
the reviews appear to be believable, often including details or
technical information that a phony reviewer would not think
to include ; check the one-star reviews first ;
usually relatively low prices ; usually multiple product sources)
eBay - at
(many products ; seems to require use of a PayPal account for payment ;
some annoying ads from CDN = Content/Crap Delivery Network 'partners'
such as 'ad.doubleclick.net'.)
(slow to come up in 2015 May)
eDeals - at
(WARNING : the home page was VERRRRYYY SLOWWWW to appear in 2015 May ;
shows the online merchant with the best price on the item you seek)
Google Shopping - at
(formerly 'Froogle' ; nice pun ; why did they ditch it? ;
seems to have a slanted emphasis on products that incorporate
Google products such as Android or Chrome operating software)
PriceGrabber - at
PriceWatch - at
SalesCircular - at
Shopwiki - at
Shopzilla - at
(fails to connect in 2015 May ; redirects to 'blip.bizrate.com'
to which connection fails ; defunct?)
It seems that 'web directories' are dying out. Google and Yahoo closed
theirs down around 2014. Then around 2017, the directory from which the
Google and Yahoo web-directories were spawned --- the DMOZ
'Open Directory Project' closed down.
It seems that it is just not feasible for a team of people to keep up with
all the sites that are going dead and the new sites that appear.
About a year after the
dmoz.org site closed down, it appears that a new web-directory site ---
curlie.org --- arose from the ashes of 'dmoz.org'.
It remains to be seen how long that web-directory lasts.
Following are a few links related to 'web directory' sites.
