Someone’s either going to give us an old washer and dryer or we’re going to buy a new set. The difference between those two events is roughly $1,000. Preparing for the worst, I stumbled across, the online equivalent of picking up ads from each store and spreading the pages out in front of you. (Something cheap-o geeks like me would actually do.) This site sorts through the ads—including one-day and in-store specials—and organizes by state the price, product details and rebate information of appliances, camcorders, DVDs, digital cameras and so on. Included are big-box retailers such as Best Buy, Kmart, Office Depot and Wal-Mart. also has buying tips and bills itself as a timesaver that is “100 percent neutral.” Add this site to your consumer arsenal, and you’ll be virtually bait-and-switch proof.
