A Fountain of Bargains - Great Stores
This is a list of the best stores on the Internet. To be included in this list, the store needs to offer consistently low prices. There are many stores that will have a few coupons or blow out seasonal sales. The rest of the year they have high prices. The problem is, you can't count on such stores to have what you need when you need it.
Great stores generally spend less on marketing and more on service. You will often find the every day price at a great store to be about the same as the blowout price of a highly marketed site.
