Check out our latest Cheaper Than Amazon article in the Ben’s Bytes section of the blog.

best-buy-amazon-logoYou can admit it. We all do it. It’s a compulsion, a necessity, an obsession. Anyone that uses the Internet checks Amazon when shopping for something.

Maybe it’s that new 47-inch HDTV that you’ve had your eye on at Best Buy. Let’s check Amazon to see if it’s cheaper. Maybe it’s a new pair of sneakers that you spotted at the mall. I bet Amazon has them too.

Don’t get us wrong, we do it too. And quite often, Amazon is cheaper. It gets even better if you still live in a state where Amazon doesn’t charge sales tax or you can use your Amazon Prime subscription to get it in just two days without paying additional shipping costs.

However, there are an increasing number of deals as of late in which retailers are able to beat Amazon’s price significantly. On Ben’s, we specifically point that out in the deal box next to the retail price. In addition to that feature, we will also be rounding up the best of those deals for you each week in this series.

So without further adieu, here are the best deals that are cheaper than Amazon this week:
