With billions of sites listed throughout the Internet how do consumers know where to shop, who is reputable and where to get the best savings? FindSavings.com has partnered with Wiley, publisher of the 2005 Online Shopping Directory For Dummies due out October 2004 to answer all those questions and more.

The book reviews nearly 1500 of the best online shopping sites grouped into useful categories such as apparel, computers and consumer electronics, home and garden, and food. Each site is rated by price, selection, service, convenience, and security, and has extensive indexes that make it easy to find products by keywords, or URL.

The categories in the For Dummies book are mirrored at the companion website http://www.findsavings.com/dummies where readers can find money saving coupons and online promotions. Consumers can also sign up to receive coupons via the FindSavings.com electronic newsletter delivered bi-monthly.

By spending a few minutes at http://www.FindSavings.com consumers will find online coupons and sales for stores like Amazon.com, Buy.com, Expedia.com, Dell and many more. Users can save hundreds of dollars at online stores just by using electronic coupons. During 2003 FindSavings.com saved consumers over $500,000. Online coupons are one of the Internet’s best-kept secrets. Online spending is already breaking records from last year and the Holiday shopping season is just starting. Many consumers are finding that they can save more money and time using these types of coupon sites.

E-Commerce is a growing business that allows consumers the ability to search, review, shop and save on just about anything imaginable. Putting the hassles of fighting crowds and traffic by the wayside, consumers are now shopping from the convenience of their home office.

As stated on money.cnn.com in the article 'Online sales sizzle in 2Q': “Online sales grew to $15.7 billion in the second quarter, up a strong 23.1 percent from the same period a year earlier, a Commerce Department report showed Friday” August 2004. “Consumers have more choice than they ever did before, says Frank D’Alessandro, Director of Business Development with FindSavings.com. “And the ability to save even more online while having sites recommended by the 2005 Online Shopping Directory For Dummies will help consumers target these sites quickly.”
