    Web Bargains
    By Marshall Loeb, MarketWatch

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The World Wide Web is a veritable treasure trove of good deals. You can find discounts, coupons and lower prices on just about anything -- if you know where to look (and it's important to be wary of scams).

    Try these Web sites to help you save money on everything from appliances to apparel:

    CheapStingyBargains.com. This online community scours the Internet for the best deals and then lists the coupons and bargains to help consumers save money. The site is updated hourly by CSB staff, and it relies on citizen "tipsters" for deals, as well.

    MySimon.com. This comparison shopping site gathers prices on millions of products from thousands of retailers, allowing you to find the lowest price before you buy.

    FatWallet.com. FatWallet offers forums, free coupons and rebates, cash-back shopping and more on virtually anything you may be looking for. Recent deals included 25% off a Sony DSC-T9 Cyber-shot Digital Still Camera and 20% off a two-night stay at a Sheraton hotel.

    SlickDeals.net. The self-proclaimed "most frequently updated and complete deal site on the Web" allows you to sort deals by day, week, or month so you can see when bargains were posted. The "Expiring Soon" section helps you act quickly if necessary.

    NaughtyCodes.com. Ever wonder how you can snag a discount code from online retailers that only send these codes to certain customers? This site finds and lists coupon and promotional codes that can be used when shopping online.

    PriceGrabber.com. Its tagline is "Comparison Shopping Beyond Compare," and it works hard to live up to it. At this site, you can quickly find free and unbiased information about various products, services and retailers before you buy.

    Just remember, postings on the Web can change in a mouse-click, so a deal you found last week may not be valid today. And be sure to read the terms and conditions of all the bargain and coupon sites you visit before you put your money down.
