    I'm not an eager on-line shopper specially after my account has been compromised. However, I also cannot stand the crowd at the mall (at this time) anymore. My daughter told me, it's the SOA (sign of old age). Lol!

    However, this hub is great and very timely. So, thank you and I'm sure to pass it along. :)

    Very useful websites, LKMore01! I never heard of Nextag! It seems to be a very interesting website to use to compare price for any purchase!

    Thank you for sharing! I never heard of TheThing either! I will have to test those websites to see if it's working for stores in Canada :-)

    I hope that you have a great Thanksgiving! Enjoy the rest of the holiday season!
