Then go to the following sites and sign up:

Price comparison…

Call the store that you want to purchase from to see if they do price matching.  A lot of retailers do this and often times will either match on the spot or give a discount on top of the match.

Check the retailers websites.  May times the prices online will differ from the prices in the store.  There are some stores that will not do price matching with other retailers will match there own online prices in the store.

Don’t be afraid to do the legwork.  You’ll be amazed at the amount of money you can save.
