Here you'll find thousands of coupons, coupon codes and deals to use when shopping online. Unlike most coupon sites, we're a one-person "boutique" operation (and have been since 1999), so must be selective both about the merchants we feature and the sales, discounts, clearances and coupon codes we post each day. We don't want to make saving money difficult, so unlike other coupon sites, we don't hide the coupon codes behind links, seed our site with annoying pop-ups or partner with fly-by-night merchants. If you'd like to be notified by email when we add new coupons and discounts, create a free account by clicking the "Deal Alerts" link above. We don't rent or sell our list to anyone; it's used only to send you updates. New coupons also are posted daily to our Twitter feed. Finally, we have a popular ebook that details the 101 best deals online, available for 99 cents for the Amazon Kindle, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Barnes and Noble nook, Kobo Reader or any other eReader or eReader software. Or receive a free PDF version with any order at Best Deal Magazines.
The business columnist, writing in 2010 in Smart Money, pointed out studies that show that you can raise the price on your house and it may sell quicker than if you try to make it sound cheaper by using the old "99" trick. That is, he pointed out, people subconsciously interpret precise numbers as being smaller than round ones. So if you price a house at $401,298, it might register as being less expensive than $399,999. A study of real-estate sales in Long Island and South Florida found that houses originally listed without zeros in the price got higher final prices than those where bidding started with a round number.
