Buzzillions.com. The user-review site has more than 3 million consumer reviews on everything from electronics to cars and lower-ticket items like cosmetics and shoes.

The magazine also suggests sorting your search by the lowest ratings first to get the scoop on what not to buy.
Ebates.com. After registering your e-mail address, you can shop at more than 900 retailers. After checking out, the site credits your account with a rebate, which can be as high as 26 percent, although most are in the 1 to 4 percent range. You can also donate your rebate to charity. ShopSmart suggests clicking on the "Daily Double" tab, where rebates for one retailer are doubled each day.
