urban_bohemian got me poking around Barnes & Noble with the promise of a $10 off coupon (it got pulled before I could get anything, alas) and I found a couple of bargains (but not many), and today I found BestPrices.com which had some pretty good prices ($89.41 for a season of Farscape, for example). I usually do my online shopping through Amazon and they usually have pretty good prices (plus usually free shipping).

Where do you folks go to do your online shopping to get the best prices? I'm specifically thinking of books, DVDs and CDs, but other stuff would be helpful, too.

I love them. I was able to find a full version of Dreamweaver for $70 off retail.

I generally go with Amazon because I've gotten nothing but good service from them. To me, good service is generally worth the couple of bucks I might save by going with some other retailer I've never heard of.

For CDs, I'll often look at CDBaby to see if they have what I'm looking for, much for the same reason as above.

For most DVDs you can get a better price on one DVD by shopping around, but whenever I'm getting more than one thing, I always have the best prices from Deep Discount DVD. Never had a problem with their service, and used them plenty of times, and like I said, when I buy in lumps (as I always end up doing because I never think it's worth it to buy one DVD), I've never found a lower price on the whole lot.

Wow, very good prices.

I concur. I've used DeepDiscountDVD several times, and their prices are terrific. The selection, however, can be slim.

DeepDiscountDVD is great; so is their sister site, DeepDiscountCD.

Sometimes you can find bargains at mysimon, too.

I use bookfinder.com to find good prices for books and bargainflix.com to find cheap DVDs -- with the caveat that when the prices are close, I'll choose a vendor I know to be reputable over an unfamiliar one.

Why must a season of Farscape be so expensive? You can get a season of Buffy for $40.

Frankly, I usually buy through Amazon; free shipping and no tax usually tips things in their favor, and I trust them. I occasionally buy used via half.com. I rarely/never use other book or music sites.

ABEBooks.com has rarely failed me. It's a network of used book stores all over the world, and it's the best way I've found to buy used books over the internet.

I've gotten textbooks there (including one that was so far out of print that the teacher was doing one of those borrow-my-photocopy-and-photocopy-it dealies), and I got my beloved circa 1970 1st edition (with appendices) Oxford English Dictionary Compact Edition for ninety bucks including shipping. Man, that bookstore ate the shipping -- they automatically charged per book, about three bucks. The postage label showed that it cost a hell of a lot more to actually ship it, the OED being a heavy freakin' book.

Come to think of it, that's my OED in the user pic.
