Shop, Save & Connect at JoeShopping

JoeShopping combines two of my favourite things: Social Networking and Shopping! It’s known as “Social Shopping” and it’s pretty darn cool.

I prefer online shopping over going to malls for a few reasons. There’s more selection, better prices, no traveling to the bigger cities (especially when you live in a small town like me) and you do it from the comfort of your own home.  With JoeShopping you can find Hot Deals with literally a click of your mouse. It’s that easy!  I had fun searching for products on my wishlist including the Kindle, Keurig and DVDs of my favourite TV series.  I simply type the product in the search box and up comes all the products that fit the term, prices and a link to buy. I can also narrow it down by category if the search is too broad. For instance, with the DVDs, I narrowed it down to just “Movies on Blu-Ray and DVD”. The prices on JoeShopping that I found were much cheaper than my local electronics store! When I found the DVD, I wanted I clicked on Compare Prices and it showed me each store it could be bought from, coupons and deals available and the price.  It’s such a nice change to have a site do all the legwork for you and find you the best deals. Their Comparison Shopping Tips were very helpful as well.

In addition, you can browse through your favourite stores and see all the coupons and deals.  I discovered that Amazon was the number one most popular store and I’d agree! I shop there all the time, but never knew I could use coupons there! I’ll be back to JoeShopping next time I need to buy a book. If you like Kohls, you can get Kohls coupons and save money. I found one for 15% off your order!

The Hot Deals section is a *must*! Find all the latest bargains as submitted by the JoeShopping staff and people from the community sharing their finds. Plus, you can vote on a deal that you like! Search the highest rated deals of the day, week  and month as well as view the ones with the most comments and the most recently posted. I found a laptop on sale for 479.99 (regularly $749.99) with FREE shipping!

For all you coupon lovers out there, make sure to check out the Coupon section. Search through the extensive Coupon Directory for online coupons and deals, grocery coupons and local deals. There stores are all listed in alphabetical order in a drop down list or you can click on the letter and find it that way. If you are shopping for clothes for your pre-teen daughter, then look under J to get Justice coupons. Notice how they give you tips for using coupons at Justice? JoeShopping simply amazes me at how thorough it is and how well it’s organized.

I know that people read blogs (like mine) for product reviews, but you can also find them on JoeShopping! Find reviews and even write them yourself as a member of the community.

The Community is what makes JoeShopping different from just a regular comparison shopping site.  You can add friends, interact with people on the forums and find people with the same interests as you. If you have questions, jump right in on the forum and ask others for their opinions. There’s also a section on your profile where you can write blog posts, upload photos and videos

JoePoints is a reward program where you can earn points by doing various activities like writing a product review or uploading a picture. The points can be used to enter the JoeShopping Sweepstakes which are held monthly. This month the prize is $100! I entered and the more points I get the more entries I will receive in the sweepstakes.

I’m very impressed with everything about JoeShopping! This is one site that I’m bookmarking and subscribing and following every way I can. I’ll be back next time I go shopping!! Visit JoeShopping and see for yourself how easy it is to navigate and lose track of time browsing this fun site!
