I snagged a deal a couple of days ago, but I found it on the Best Buy app. It gives you a list of Open Box and Clearance items at your favorite Best Buy locations. Hint: the app usually shows prices that the main website says "Visit Store for Details" in the price field.

They had an Open Box 2012 Mac mini 2.3 Core i7 ($799 configuration) for $721.99. Then they applied a 10% off coupon for Open Box items, taking it down to $649.79. Then I redeemed $15 in Reward Zone certificates, taking it to $634.79 + tax.

If I had to guess, the original purchaser returned it because of the HDMI display problem. I read on the Apple forums that it's supposed to be fixed in 10.8.3. I can handle that. :)

Just downloaded SaleSorter. Great app for deal-searching as well. Has great location and preference settings. Check it out.

Great article. I think the author missed OfferBeam. OfferBeam is a proximity "offer" app. Nothing better than real-time deals. OfferBeam is available for iPhone and Android platforms. Overall, the consumer wants deals and offers, most of the apps offer different options in bargain hunting.

Thank you for including Slice here. Since this article is about bargain hunting, I thought you should also know about Slice's Price Drop Alert feature, which can help people get money back on things they've bought.

If Slice notices that something a user has bought has recently dropped in price, we'll notify the user of which item, how much the potential savings is, and we'll provide a link to their receipt and to the merchant's customer support email and phone numbers. It usually takes only a minute or two to claim the price adjustment. Some of our users have gotten hundreds of dollars back!
