So, kind of off-topic, but has anybody noticed that Subway is offering footlong subs for $5? Of course you have, they won't shut up about it. But did you notice that the footlong tuna sub is regularly priced somewhere around $4.89? (They'll charge you five bucks if you don't ask for the menu price, true story.) Some deal, Subway. But this whole smoke and mirrors sale tactic is not exclusive to the custom sub industry. News flash! Electronics stores do it all the time. Thankfully, a Web site called Gazaro wants to help you spot the phonies—and the good deals...
Gazaro wants to help you figure out if the "$999 BEST DEAL EVER! FLAT PANEL TV!" is really worth the gas to get to the warehouse.
You can search through reccomended sales at big box stores like Best Buy, Staples and WalMart, or search for a specific gadget or gadget category to see where the deals are. You can even register to get emails whenever an item you're watching has a price drop at any store.
Each sale page provides you with a "Deal Score" rating, user reviews from across the Web, and a price trending feature that tips you off on whether it's a good time to buy or to wait.
